Hubby had a weird sensation on his chest (not in it) and when he looked, the skin was fluttering! I joked that maybe he had an alien in there trying to get out, but asked if he was in any pain to which he said no.
From the opposite settee, I could see what he meant, so we recapped the day to see if anything could have caused it.
Checking up on the internet, there was a variety of reasons, including over exercise, so remembering our trip to the tip and all the rubble he had to lift out of the boot and into the skip, we wondered if maybe he’d pulled a muscle.
The thing was, it wouldn’t go away. He said it was annoying, but not painful, and then he had a drink of water and it started to ache.
No messing about, in the car and up to A&E. He’s on warfarin, so if he’d torn something inside, he could have a bleed, though there was nothing to indicate he had.
I’ve just got back and he’s still waiting for bloods to be taken at a second hospital. With no time frame available, it was pointless me hanging around in the car with the dog especially as we would have to pay 2 days parking by the time he was finished, so I came home. He feels fine in himself, not ill, nauseous, or dizzy so it could just be a muscle spasm, but best not to take any chances.
Maggie has not had a single walk today as she was favouring her front foot and was obviously in a lot of pain. We dosed her up with loxicom and checked her feet, finally finding what looked like a tiny thorn that was in the wrong place so that when she walked, she put pressure on it and it dug in even further. We’ve cleaned the site, disinfected it and applied the cream we have for foot infections. I phoned the vet for some more which they are sending in the post as we have enough for the weekend.
So two out of the three of us are out of commission, and my back is still playing up, so pass the painkillers please!
