In the picture above you can see how red her skin is around her mouth and nose. All her skin was that red and irritated. I heard from the vet. Seems like Zoey is causing some problems, LOL. She pulled out her IV twice. She has barked non stop since she was left. She is biting on the kennel trying to chew her way out. So he is having to give her nausea med, antihistamines and new antibiotic by shot. He gave her a sedative but it didn't work long. So I went to visit.
We sat on the floor and she was just crying softly under her breath and hugging up to me. She has one of those plastic cone around her head. Her eyes are drugged looking and she stinks to high heaven. I hugged her and petted her to calm her down and she finally stopped crying and took a nap. Crossed legged on the floor I struggled not to bawl. I just want to pick her up and bring her home. Surely this distress can't be helping her illness. I even asked the vet to let me bring her home and promised to give the shots myself. But he says she is too ill. I can't risk her life. Fortunately after my hour visit she quietly went back to the kennel and has been quiet and dosing the rest of the day. I promised her I would bring her home as soon as possible. I know she is just a dog but I swear she knows I mean it.
So I came back home and changed out of my now smelling clothes and went to my MIL. My MIL is having a bad day. Very vague and her lasix hasn't helped. Her legs are still swollen. She is getting very withdrawn which you see at the end of the journey. So another wonderful day. WhileRick stayed I came home and made supper and am just resting. I needed to get off my feet for awhile.
I read some journals today and got some great laughs. Jimmy always is good for a chuckle and Pam sent some great pumpkin pictures. Jeane has great pictures of peaceful places I wish I was. I close my eyes and meditate and picture sitting by the lake on that bench. I can smell the leaves and hear the water. I am there for awhile. Awwwwww
