Blog delay

Just to fill you in.
I’m late accessing my blog today as Maggie had her head X-ray this morning and has had the lump on her face removed.
Tissue samples have been sent away and she has also had a tooth taken out.
The vet doesn’t think there is anything untoward, but there is a small cavity in the bone so something has been going on and that’s what we’re waiting to find out.
More antibiotics and poor Maggie doesn’t know which way is up, bless her.
Don’t ask the cost as it was more than I’d bargained for, but I can still cover it OK.

Hubby has gone off to a GP’s appointment to discuss his blood test results from last week, and when he gets back, will be giving her a bath as she STINKS!
I can’t see if it’s because she had an accident as she seems clean, but it is definitely offensive to the nostrils, though we know of course it’s not her fault.

We have to go back in ten days for the stitches to be removed, by which time the results should be back. Hopefully it will just be an abscess which has now been addressed.
Now we just have to encourage her to eat, so I’ve scrambled a egg for her as her tummy is squelching away, and she has had a good long drink since she got home.
I’ve walked her (groggily) round the block but she hasn’t done anything, though I think she wants to as she is always going to the door asking to go outside.
Typically it’s miserable, and alternating between rain, snow and sleet, though there were hailstones earlier. Great (not).

I’ve got darts tonight, but Hubby has said he is content to stay home with her. However, I think he’s in for a restless evening because of her pacing and I shall have an interrupted night watching over her. Roll on the morning.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    It is such a worry isn’t it bless she should be on the mend by tomorrow though anesthesia can linger. I do empathize because Ruby has been unwell since Thursday. First she vomited, then didn’t eat for over a day. Two visits to the vets, two injections, and now antibiotics. We have had restless day and disturbed night as the diorreha was every half hour. Luckily it is finally abating.
