         Zoey is in the doggy hospital hooked up to IV's.  The vet thinks she had a severe allergic reaction the antibiotics and then from vomiting and stuff got pancreatitis.  Somehow she also picked up fleas, probably there and maybe is allergic to them.  They did a ton of lab work and we should be hearing from him shortly to see what they have found out.  She looked so bad I was afraid she wouldn't survive the night.  Lord knows what the vet bill will be.

    Then I had some more views on my dexta scan.  Metal shows blue on the scans and I have this perfect round spot on my spine above where the screws are.  Possibly the head to one of the screws has broken off.  That would account for the increase in pain I have been having and the round bruise Rick noted.  It isn't bothering me as bad today so I would prefer to put that on the back burner for now so I shall.  Last thing I want is back surgery right now.

    We also got Ricks bill, 53,000 +.  Boy I hope my insurance comes through.   Looks like I will have to be working some major overtime.  Speaking of which, they messed up my check for the 3rd week in a row.  I didn't get 2 days of charge pay or 8 hours of PTO.   I did not need a short check this week.   Some days you just want to go outside and scream.  Remember scream therapy from was it the 70's?  There was something to that, LOL. 

   I hope Zoey is home soon.

     The house seems so empty with her gone.  Every since she got poisoned a couple of years ago she has been not as healthy as she was.  I wish we knew what she got into.

Poor Zoey!   Bless her!  I hope she will soon recover on the drip Julie.  That Vets needs fumigating if you ask me.  Poor angel catching fleas.  You will miss having her around terribly.  Praying for a quick recovery.  When you said she seemed to have hives  I wondered if she was allergic to something or had been poisoned by something she had eaten outside.  
Good riddance to bad rubbish where your BIL is concerned.  Threaten him with going to court over Betty's drugs if he chooses to comes back.  You won't see him for dust!
Thinking of her often and so glad its the top of the screw and not something sinister after all.  Thank you God!

I feel happier about that now.  You must be so relieved!

Keeping you in my thoughts waiting for that silver lining to appear inside that cloud that seems to keep following you around.

You must be so happy your BIL is going home Julie. I'm praying Zoey will soon be on her way home too. Every hospital I've ever worked in gets the paychecks wrong. It's an event if they get them right, that's not happened for a long while! Sending prayers for you and your back too. Jeannette xx

I sure hope Zoey will be well enough real soon to come home.  I know how much you must miss him. My dog is such a big part of our family, and I'm sure Zoey is too.  Take care of yourself Julie.  Have a great weekend

I think BIL got far more than he ever deserved. I hope your MIL does cut him out of the will. He's a very DANGEROUS sociopath. Poor Zoey hopes she's home soon. (Hugs) Indigo
