Tan Torkelson scares the whole family!!!

OMDOG guys it is Tan Torkelson and I have to tell you about what I did this week and why we have not posted.

Ok so like it was Wednesday morning and Mom said WAKE UP TANNER and I said I do not want to wake up. So Mom said wake up and she picked me up and I stood up and jumped on the floor and then I said NO and just laid back down. Mom said WTF?!??!

So then she noticed I was shaking and I couldn't lift up my little head and then she saw my neck was like 3 times bigger than it should be and she was like OMDOG and I had to go to that vet. The Vet said OMDOG he might have the Valley Fever OR he might have a ruptured disk. So they took some pictures of my neck and my insides and they stole my bloods. The pictures did not show any rupturation or weirdness in my neck so they gave me some ROIDS and some sweet pain pills and said we will see if he has that Valley Fever. and guess what...MOm had to wait til TODAY to find out that I DO NOT have the Valley Fever (if you don't know what that is you can google but its basically a stupid fungus in the southwest that makes you get infecterations in your lungs and can spread to your spine.)

SO I do not have the fever and I do not have a rupturated disk so I do not know what is wrong that my neck got SUPER fat and I was sadderest except maybe my brains got SO HEAVY from learning so much from that TV.

OMDOG so many words!!!!!!

So here is a picture of me suffering from ROID RAGE and here is one of Joey suffering from...

JEALOUSY because my brains are heavier than his!!!

Tomorrow is my Mom's birthday and she said the best present is that I do not have the Valley Fever.

ALSO this is what life looks like on Pain Pills. LOLOL.

Tan Torkelson heavy weigh brain is OUT.

Tanner! You just took five year's off your poor old mom's life what with swelling up and falling over. I sure hope the roids and stuff can fix you up and that you don't have Valley Girl Fever. Yuh, as if! Stay well, little friend.

Tanner, you are so funny. I did the same thing a few months ago. Sort of spaced. I did not eat and did not want to go out. They tested me for everything and I was fine. I got a nice day spa room at the VET! It only cost something like 600 bucks for the day! However, it didn't come with a masseuse.

I was better but managed to get about six days of bland diet and then chicken broth and riceables. Try that.

I am happy for your mom that you are better. Stop trying to do headstands. They eventually will make you crazy.

Oh man Tanner, are you an addict? Have you been watching Nurse Jackie? Are you having an affair with the pharmacist? You are a mess and Joey is awesome. All is as it should be.

Hi, Tanner...

OMdoG...You must have scared your Mom & Dad sooo much...

I'm glad you didn't have the Valley Girl Fever or some disc thing...

Please take all your meds (looks like you enjoy them, anyway)...And, try to watch reruns on TV - that way you won't learn anything new...

Oh my dogness, what a scary scary fright you gave your mom!
Tanner we are so glad you do not have the silly fever we have never heard of!
Now if we google it we might develop symptoms so we will leave it!!!
We don't know if having a heavy brain is good or bad.
What happens, for example, if you go for a swim?
Do you sink head first!
Oh my goodness, you have given us so much to worry about over here in Scotland.
Please get well and stay well and take all the roids you need.

OMD,Tanner, your poor Mom and you - that must have been so scary. Glad the roids helped you out. We think you must have been bit somehow by a nasty spider or maybe a bee. Hope that doesn't happen again.

We are so glad you don't have Valley Girl Fever or a slipped disco. Thank Dog! Be EXTRA nice to your mom today, cause she is still probably recovering from the scare you gave her.
Happy Birthday Mrs. Torkelson!

I am glad that you do not have valley girl fever. I will be looking out for my neck since I too have ENORMOUS brains and a wonky eye. Although I wouldn't mind another pain patch and maybe some roids though being ragey sounds awfully tiring so maybe I'll just take a nap.

Jeepers.Thank dog you don't have the valley fever I've never heard of before or the disco thing. Having such a large brain is heavy going I know from experience. Hope your neck reduces but not your head Tanner. Wiry love Eric

Poor Tanner... we are glad it isn't Valley fever or ruptured disk and you are on the mend. Hmmm.. does it mean whatever you have learnt from the TV is leaving your brain??

Oh wow.. our mom took some pain pills last week cos she went to the dentist and she was walking around all weird.. NOW I know why!!

Blogger Stella said...

Whoa, Tanner! This sounds terrible and I hope you are better with each passing day. Sounds like a bee bite or a spider bite to me, too. You have scorpions there in AZ, don't you? Another bad bite guy! Just take it easy and get well!

Happy, Happy Birthday to Joey and Tanner's Mom Rhonda! We wish you the very best!

On the upside, you can now blame any weight gain on the roids. Joey can marvel at your beefy self. I agree that it sounds like a spider bite. Spiders are crawly monsters from hell. General fact. We think you had better take it easy for a couple of days to be on the safe side.
