[QUOTE=NZ primal Gwamma;1027576]as we all are !!! and lots and lots of hugs from down this way (actually best we don't do the belly rubs and slobbery licks !!!!)
Lmao Gwamma, that almost made me spit out my tea :-D
Thanks you, I really needed a laugh today.
Oh Misabi - I am so pleased he is home again. All the best for tomorrows ultrasound
My big boy's back home and feeling much more like himself!
His temp is back to normal and his liver no longer feels like a brick, but still swollen enough for the vet to refer him to a specialist tomorrow for an ultrasound.
hey misabi how is the dog today? just watch vets as they can be rogues. they have the technology and like to use it.
we are in the throes of making a test GF gingerbread house. Icing it together after school. So far so good. I have no idea what it tastes like but it smelt good baking and the kids liked the biscuits they made with the offcuts. re: xmas food. excutive decision here. i will make a small amount of the raw fruit cake for me, Gf baking for everyone else, pav for dessert of which i will have the berries and cream. i will avoid the chocolates and faleo cheats. other than the piece of raw fruit cake. and will just eat meat, kaimoana and veges. i have to drive heaps so i cant get into the bourbon or whisky either. other benefit of that is no one usually thinks to do special faleo cheat food for me either so i get stuck with the meat and veges lol
sounds perfect Seaweed. I have found a really nice verkers salami. Countdown sells it. I think its called traditional, and yes I am sure it has a small amount of faleo ingreds, but it would have to be the best salami ever !!!!! try it...... just as a treat thou !
Beautiful day here today. I managed to get the lawns mown yesterday, so am having a computer/washing/dick around day....brilliant !!!!!
Made DH a late breaky/brunch of minted lamb chops, kumara chips and salad. He appreciated every bite....wasn't that nice !
At least hes not losing weight anymore. I was getting a wee bit worried
Right - off to sort the next thing on the list
Good bye my lovelees....
Poor DH is completely freaked out about tomorrow. not only is he doing his first ever heavy-lifting (with weights) fasted workout, but he's got a full day, then later (breaking fasting window) dinner with friends after 8 pm, and then Hobbit (3d/ff) at midnight! Then he'll come home and sleep it all off, while I take DS to kindy, have a day at work, and he'll pick DS up from school, bring him home and dinner him, then meet the baby sitter, then drive back to town to meet me at the 8 pm showing (2d regular frame rate).
it was beautiful here this morning and i was having all kinds of hissy fits as i had to pretty much stay home and work. no way could i fit in two sprints around the block and a motorcycle ride. it went to custard about lunch time so i had to content myself with earning money and the exercise. no motorcycle riding. we get verkerks salami. i put it in the kids lunch. the nicest salami i have ever had one of the home kill butchers around here makes out of wild pork. salami and paua. yum!
It's been a full on day. Had to drive across the city to take the boy to the specialist for his ultrasound, who sent me back to my vet to get the results (standard practice of which I was warned beforehand).
Got back to my vet to be told that he has a mass on his spleen that was either due to it being twisted or a tumour.
Surgery needed to explore / remove the spleen, but a chest X-ray needed first in case it is can er and has already spread to his heart, in which case the operation wouldn't be necessary. But my vets can't X-ray dogs his size, so I could either go to one of their sister clinics or head back to the specialist on the other side of the city. Also, their surgeon is on leave but they're sure they could get someone suitably skilled in to do the op tomorrow.
Bugger waiting, so headed out west again and promptly got stuck in a 20km tailback forms crash in the new tunnel closing SH1 from the city north. Finally got back to the hospital and the X-rays were thankfully clear and he's now in surgery for his splenectomy :-(
Might have to sell Don the Dub to cover it, but it'll be worth it.
he is one lucky dog. around here, the vet in this case would have been a hole and a bullet as we couldnt afford that =( here's hoping he will recover very quickly and be all good for many more years to come. fwiw if he's not already on a total prey diet, do it and avoid any of those kennel shots like the plague.
I know what your saying seaweed. Hopefully insurance will cover the bulk of the costs, otherwise may be looking for a new home for the VW and give up on the idea of seeing my folks in the UK for the next couple of years. but there's no way I'd put either of my two done as long as they have a fighting chance. Obviously I'm not talking about throwing money at the vet just to keep them alive and suffering, if that were the case I'd put them down rather than see them suffer.
We can't have kids of our own, so these furry buggers mean everything to me.
My girl is doing laps of the house trying to find her buddy :-(
I had them eating primal for years before I was. Don't know why it took so long to click that we should be doing the same.
