Ethan also had a new MRI a couple weeks ago to check to see if they could see a reason for his central sleep apnea, and also to just general check things and compare to his last one. His last MRI was completely clean, and I found myself in limbo between wanting another clean MRI, and wanting them to find something, almost hoping that if they found something they could somehow fix it. The procedure went well, and besides Ethan being angry and groggy after waking up he did fine as well. We got the results a few days later and it was in fact clean, with just some sinus swelling. So that was good/bad news I guess! It leaves him still with no physical reasons for his seizures, and no obvious reasons for his central sleep apnea. As has been the case the whole time, we're left with no reason for this all.

And shortly there after, and much too soon for me, school was out. Ethan graduated preschool!
In one last bit of news we have been working on Jet's training full force. Over the last few months he has gotten so significantly better! I'm amazed at some of the things he can do, and his behavior is fantastic! He even passed his public access test last week! I will eventually get a DVD of the test, and will share it here. Just for fun we tried to get him to open a handicap door, and he got it on his third try! I haven't trained him for any tasks like that, so I was impressed. So I'll leave you with some fun doggy training pictures:)
|He really is a water dog!|
|Don't mess with Jet, his best friends are all German shepherds:)|
|They're all having hot dogs thrown at them, none of them touched them:)|

Please take a second to check out Love My Canine. I don't think we would have gotten half as far as we have without their training and support!
