ex machina

i'd like to personally thank the person at our local canine rescue league for professionally dealing with an e.mail my wife sent about the options for caring for dogs with "uncontrolled seizures" - aside from the obviously unpleasant prospect of euthanization.

she was kind enough to forward the e.mail to dozens of people who feel compelled to share the excruciating details of their journeys into the depths of anectodal epilespy therapy for dogs.

"dont give up!" they say, in a well-meaning attempt to boost spirits. don't give up until you've tried gold bead implants in his head and if that doesn't work there's always the "all meat diet" or maybe the "raw foods diet" and sometimes you might need to supplement with this herb or that herb and well sometimes that therapy only works for a few weeks and so on and on and on.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
