Whew! Crisis mode over. Thank goodness ALL the stressy stuff has worked out well so far, and quickly!
Our elderly mini-dog started another medication today after our vet consulted with some other vets, and they think this should help him be less agitated and afraid. He has congestive heart failure and a bit of senility going on, so he already started Lasix for the coughing and now this new drug will help with the mental side and he should be happier and more comfortable. He doesn't have much longer, due to his heart, but we want to help him enjoy life until it is his time.
The pup cut her leg on the hard crusty ice that froze over the deep fluffy snow. The cut itself looked manageable yesterday but then apparently she licked it all night until it was a large, raw area of pink with no hair. Vet advised me to wrap it with "vet wrap" so I put ointment on it and now she has a bandage-wrapped leg. Hopefully she doesn't chew the bandage off. She eats everything.
Son is doing a little better with his issue, which, because of his age and privacy, I won't get into. But the stress level on that is lower as well.
Daughter saw the pediatrician and thank GOODNESS it is almost certainly pain from Precordial Catch Syndrome which is harmless. It is very scary when your child is having bad pains in their chest on the left side, especially when they've had to see a cardiologist before. I am so, so thankful this is nothing serious! The weight off my shoulders feels very real and I am in gratitude mode today!
