We’ve been busy. Still don’t have any answers, we go in Friday for that appointment. We have taken in a foster pup. She is sweet and was at one time loved. She also has some trust issues. She was underweight and had been bred a few times, she also had a respiratory and skin infection. Since last Wednesday she’s had nose bleeds. She spent the weekend at the vet and Friday a biopsy was taken of her nostril (it’s only one that is giving us problems) to check for fungal infection. She takes this all in stride with grace. We pick her up tonight and hopefully will get some results by Friday (the sooner the better). She’s up through adoption through The Pit Stop Rescue. Donations to her care can be made on the website (Pit Stop Donations). Her sponser is already looking at 1K between her and her partner (brother? Father?…). Thankfully she was heart worm negative, unfortunately he was not. I know she’s ready to come home, unfortunately she’ll have to be crated until we can get her started on some medications and get her nasal bleeds under control. She’ll be taking doggie xanex to keep her calm and will still be on a plethora of antibiotics and herbs to help her through the other issues she had. I’m hopeful that this will also help her get well enough that her body can start fighting the fungal (if that is what it is) infection. She is such a sweet girl and she deserves the best life.
Today is also the eclipse. I’m trying to keep my mind off of what today is, what we were supposed to be doing. We should have our baby, we should be at dad’s visiting the family and showing off our offspring and watching totality. But no I had a miscarriage. Instead we’re still in limbo, we’re still waiting, we’re still broken. To me it’s bittersweet. Hopefully we’ll learn something Friday. Hopefully April 8, 2024 (the next total eclipse in the US) we’ll be able to take our baby(ies) somewhere to see. Today I’m working, tonight I get puppy snuggles from not just my 2 boys but a thankful rescue and my friends dog B.
Have a great day everyone. Don’t blind yourself!
