It’s late afternoon and to be honest, I don’t know where the day has gone.
I walked Maggie at 8.20, then had breakfast, and we were off to the next town by 9.30.
We’d got cocky with the solid food intake and Hubby really paid for it yesterday, so we are taking a backward step and reverting to liquids only for the next few days to give his system a chance to regroup. Today’s mini field trip was to get some indigestion remedy that we know works for him, and also a glucometer for me following my little episode yesterday.
Whilst out, we got a few other things and I treated myself to some trimmings for my cards as they had some new stock in. Some very pretty stickers and papers will be played with in due course.
Lunch today was stew, the ingredients of which were all homegrown. I whizzed Hubby’s portion to a thick broth that he was able to drink and that has gone down very well with no repercussions. He is trying to contact his consultant to ascertain if what he experienced yesterday was normal. It is pointless going through the usual channels as the messages are not forwarded on, so Hubby has gone through the PALS office as they were helpful before.
It is lovely and sunny outside, but there is a definite nip in the air.
Chatting to a couple who have a fox terrier called Ted, I saw them carrying him the other day and asked if he was OK. It would appear he had the same trouble as Maggie with sickness and diarrhoea, and they had to take him to the vet. He hadn’t eaten for three days and didn’t want to go out for his walks either, so they were very worried as he’s only 5. He had a good check over and was given a jab like Maggie was to settle things down. I think that as Ted is a sniffer like Maggie it is highly possible he picked up a bug from another dog like she did. He’s OK now though, and that’s the main thing.
