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.
