Getting old a scare and then hope winston my dog

Well it was all going so well then life jumps up and bites you .So as you all know the blog is called after my wonderful dog winston .So Wednesday night I was out in morning and walked winston we got part way into his walk and his back legs stopped working and he fell on his side ,I panicked and just didn’t know what to do luckily after a few minutes coax he got up and we slowly managed to get home and Winston rested .Now I should gone to vets but as I life hand to mouth every month had no money and my dad who usually helps is in the states for a month I had to wait rest him luckily was off thurs so we spent quiet day but he still need to go and do his business outside so he went ok in the morning but in the evening his leg went just as we just got in the house he panicked ran round jumped on sofa trapped said leg and took over an hour to settle .So to yesterday after winston settled on thurs night he didn’t move I left him as I had to work Friday but amanda had managed to get the morning off as we live some distance from our vets and my brother was only free in evening so I got home from work scared panicky about what the vet would say ,he was so subdued since Thursday but he got up just before we Went we took a short walk his leg seemed better , even behaved in the car which he usually hates and in the vets waiting .Do the door opened and my heart worried the vet looked as best he could as my lively winston isn’t the most people friendly dog outside amanda and I he tends to get over excited or grumbly when touched too much by anyone .So vet said he thought it was probably arthritis and a course of tablets may ease symptoms and see how he goes the joy for me as I thought the worst I mean Winston is ten and half I know he is a good age but he has been very healthy before this a broken leg as a pup was caused by himself running into a hole and last year a cyst on the tail have been the only things that apart from usual dogo things he has been to vet for ,he has a tricky tum but I’ve managed that over the years .So if I take a day or two to come back my head is still in a real twist I don’t cope well with winston being ill he means so much to me and he has helped me in the lowest parts of my life in the past .He has always just been there and apart from Amanda is the second most important thing in my heart .In hindsight I feel bad I missed signs that this was creeping up on him the slow walks upstairs the occasional lie and roll In the grass which he has done always but more in recent month may have been more for the arthritis than for fun as they used to be .Anyway sorry to bore you with my life details but there you go
Ps I do have insurance on winston but I need to pay and then claim back which in hindsight as well maybe was best plan to go with
