Chris & Martin's ScrapBook 2019

These pages were initially created to transfer photos from traditional scrapbooks to the internet in order to both preserve and make the pictures and history available to family and friends. It has become more extensive than I intended. However, I see it as a way to save the details before they slip away.

A couple of days after the storm, Bracken developed serious mobility problems on her left side. We took her to our Crossroads vet in Bastrop who then sent us to the Austin Veterinary Emergency Services in Austin.  X-rays showed serious hip arthritis. The vet felt that because of other left side hearing and sight problems, Bracken may be dealing with a brain tumor, or possibly a stroke. They said an MRI could be completed, however first they recommended we take her back to our vet the next day and begin steroid treatment to see how she responds. The steroids began on the 12th. On the 19th of June, she seems to be improving. We've  been trading off sleeping in the living room with Bracken. video
