9 Weeks

Miss Nessie is 9 weeks today! Unfortunately, she does not feel much like celebrating. She has been REALLY sick for the past couple of days. She went and had a vet visit yesterday so now she is on all kinds of medications and hating us. She is definitely feeling better today but is still puny. I feel so sorry for her - and she looks like hell!! :(

It's a good thing I have all of this animal and people medical experience. Nessie is having to get fluids so it's nice that I can do those at home. Yesterday at the vet they weren't able to get blood from her because she is so small. It just so happens that small veins is my area of expertise. So, luckily I was able to draw it myself for them to run some tests on. I hope she does not need more because this little girl does NOT like being restrained!

THEN, yesterday Mr. Man was running downtown. He saw the Chief of Police and started messing with him. Just then he felt a "pop" in his calf muscle and was instantly crippled. So, he got a ride in the cruiser back to the gym where I was. Sports injuries are NOT my area of expertise so off to the urgent care center we went. Luckily, he didn't rupture anything but he can't really walk so he has been laid up on the couch with ice on his elevated leg. He has an appt. with an orthopedist on Thursday just to be sure but I think he is just going to have to stay off of it for a while. For those of you who know my husband, getting him to be still for any length of time is no small feat.

Well, here are some cute pictures of my 2 patients. Nessie LOVES Wayne!!! :)



This picture is hilarious!
