I just want to thank everyone who has offered support and well wishes for… the dog. It means a lot during what has been an incredibly draining week.
She is home, and based on her last test, on the mend. We check again on Monday.
In the mean time, she is on restrictions. Which is sort of like trying to restrict a three year old that feels great, but isn’t allowed to do anything.
No jumping, no stairs, no playing, no running, no straining, none.
Oh, it is just loads of fun around here. Good thing it isn’t the kid though, at least we can kennel the dog. Good thing also that she is crate trained and actually likes being in there.
When we were leaving visiting hours (yes, they have visiting hours) on Tuesday the medical student who checked her in was starting work and stopped us to tell us how much everyone loved her. She told us that the med student assigned to her carried her around and told her how much he loved her. Her med student is young, good looking, typical tall, dark and handsome. Now picture that carrying around a 12 pound dog and whispering sweet nothings in her ear.
Yeah, that made my night too. Still makes me giggle.
The pup, she is loved, by all that know her. Makes me feel slightly less nauseous after paying the bill for her care. She is now the second most expensive thing I own, after the house. (allowing for devaluation of my poor car) Good thing she’s cute.
