Nico has been getting more and more confident about doing the things he think he is able to do and especially the things he is not allowed to do. As my coach Rob wisely said, “sounds like a dog.”
Nico has been jumping off the bed in the night, and it greatly concerns me because it’s how he injured himself in the first place. He just cries all night if he has to be in the kennel…so the middle ground is that I put my mattress directly on the floor. The mattress used to only be on the box spring, no frame or anything, but it was still too high for that suspension bridge back.
We’re all in bed now–Nico, Pippa, and myself. No one is going to roll out or jump off and hurt themselves. We’re all safe and close to the ground.
