Threes, they say? I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop!
Thank you for your many comments and emails of concern about my well being. I survived said accident except for a nasty case of whiplash and a very strained shoulder. The Dr. prescribed me some goofy pills that turn me into a slow motion slug when I take them, but they do help alleviate the pain.
Shall we put you out of your misery? I could beat you to death with this Kong.
Today I got word that yes, indeed, my van was totaled and is a complete write-off. The POS Pontiac and I will have a moment of silence as I clear out its contents (hmmm … where to store 6 more crates?) and then it’ll be time to move on to another vehicle. They’ve not yet told me what they feel it’s worth, but I’m guessing it won’ t be much. Can you believe I only have $2K left to pay on it? *pout*
I got the “good” (<– so much sarcasm) news just before I left for the vet’s with Tweed. Yesterday afternoon while playing his crazy chase game with Dexter,
I didn’t do anything.
he came up very VERY lame – non weight-bearing on his right front leg. I gave him some Metacam and put him to bed, but it was exactly the same this morning. My vet’s office is closed on Mondays, and I work all this week, so I went to another vet.
The good news – it’s not his shoulder or some other scary thing.
The bad news – it’s his foot. Specifically, it’s the sesamoid bones in his foot.
The tragedy – he will probably need the same procedure on this right foot that he got on his left last year :( At least they gave me his x-rays on a disc for my regular vet, so I won’t have to pay for those twice.
And at least the vet said he was “a lean, mean machine” and as is always the case with vets and their staff, everyone loved him. It’s because he looks at them with adoration and longing … he’s longing for cookies and adores it when they oblige, but whatever makes them happy!
Please can we play a game of SOME kind? How about Flying Squirrel?
Anyway, the poor dogs are not getting much outdoors time right now (and Tweed’s no longer getting any) and they’re kind of frustrated, but it hurts me to throw the ball or whatever and I’m all sleepy from the drugs. I also won’t be photographing much for the next little while, because the heavy camera hurts my neck and excessive typing does too. So if we are MIA at Wootube for a bit, never fear … I’m just recuperating.
Hoping your week is better than mine has been,
The Food Lady xoxo
