Misha and I have a morning routine. Because of my arthritis, I like to take my first potty stop, then go back for a few minutes to get all the joints operating in the right direction. Misha adapted quite nicely to this routine for the first 6 years of her life. She would wait under her blankets (or mine) until I got up to get dressed.
Not anymore. For several weeks, I’ve been greeted by my little early riser who is ready to greet the day the minute the alarm goes off. Nothing like being woken up by a Jack Russell Terrier standing on your stomach before you’ve had a chance to empty your bladder.
I have a feeling it’s the Incurin. Nothing else has changed in the last three weeks. The only thing I can think of is since it’s working so well and she isn’t having accidents at night, she is waking up with a really full bladder…a bladder that demands to be relieved right now!
Frankly, it’s thrown off my schedule a bit. I’m not a morning person and I’m a slow riser. It’s like having a toddler in the house ready to play at the crack of dawn. The only good thing is my toddler goes back to bed after breakfast to her tent. I’m left half awake with foggy brain.
I shouldn’t complain. We had a similar situation several months ago. Only she was up in the early hours having panic attacks from Proin. This is much more tolerable!
I’m just going to have to adjust. I’d much rather wake up to Miss Misha Sunshine than to a puddle that has to be cleaned.
