Today has been a breath of fresh air.
Yesterday was by far the worst day. I was actually terrified to go to sleep. Which is a feeling I’ve never had to deal with before and it’s something I wouldn’t wish on anyone. I was so upset because of the plasma transfusion, the fever, the fact that I had asked nurses to change his cone three times and it still wasn’t done, no one tried to feed him but me, and the list of medications seemed overwhelming for his tiny body. I also found out that we would be getting a new doctor since it was the weekend. Anxiety was at an all time high.
But this morning I got a call from his doctor with an update that his temperature was back to normal, he was brighter and more alert, he had eaten for one of the nurses, and that he was being naughty and trying to chew his lines. I went in to go see him and he was standing up in his kennel yelling at me because I wasn’t getting my quarentine get up on fast enough. I opened his kennel door and he bombarded me with smiles and kisses. He ate baby food, goats milk yogurt, and drank some bone broth for me. He was much more responsive and alert as well.
I think we’re both getting pretty tired of the baby books and I could probably recite all four of them by now. So after I left today I picked up something a little longer and a little more of an interesting read. Call of the Wild by Jack London. I wonder if we’ll get through the whole book before he gets out of the hospital.
Today is a good day, and it’s given me the hope that had faded the past couple days. I hope the worst of this is over and that it’s only up from here. We are still not out of the woods just yet so please keep us in your thoughts and prayers 🐺🐾🖤 Vet Bills have totaled over $5,000
