1. Harley is having a lot of problems with his tail post-op. I have had to take him back to the vet a couple of times. Once just because I thought he had pulled a stitch out. (He hadn’t.) And yesterday because he really started just acting like he didn’t feel good. He was being really pissy with Bella, and I noticed him really guarding his tail. He wouldn’t wag it or anything. He just kept it curled up next to his body. When I made him let me look at it, it was red and swollen. Not just around the wound either. From the incision all the way to the tip of his tail. He was running a fever at the vet’s office, so they gave me another week’s worth of a stronger antibiotic and some pain pills. We go back tomorrow for a recheck and for suture removal. He doesn’t seem any better to me today. It hurts my heart to know that he is hurting. They did call me back today with the lab results. The path report showed that it was a histiocytoma. Completely benign. Thank God for that.
2. It is driving Bella crazy that Harley won’t play with her. She, in turn, is driving us crazy. It’s cold and snowy and crappy out, so our outside time is limited. She has a lot of energy to burn off and she’s doing it by getting into EVERYTHING. She has even found a new place to sleep–in my dining room table.
3. C.C. has woke me up at approximately 4:00 the past three mornings. Apparently something has happened during the night that she just couldn’t wait to tell me about because she comes into the bedroom tellin’ it all. “Meow…. MEOW….MEEEEEEEEEOOOOOOOWWWWW!!!!!!”
