I got no sleep whatsoever last night. There's been some trouble with a family member and it's kept me up all night. I knew the lack of 'drama' was too good to last.
Griffin found a lump on Coco's tummy on Saturday. I was immediately alarmed, as it is quite large and hard.
I thought it was a hernia, but Steve took a look at it, and he reckons it's not a hernia, more a cyst or some such thing.
Either way, I hope to get her into the Vet's this morning, or if not, maybe Bex can take her this afternoon. I hope they can see her today, because it's going to worry me until we know what's what.
The only other thing on me agenda today is some housework before going to do my shift at the Hospice Shop.
Here's a few photos from yesterday:
ABOVE: Dante had a horror day yesterday. He was so grumpy and off his food, off everything actually! This was him lying on Granddad, then the next second...
ABOVE: out to it! But it didn't last ... and he ended up being mega grumpy for the entire day, until 11 pm. Then he thought it would be an excellent time to chirp up and be happy! Little bugger.
ABOVE: Rena has the 'gappy' look going on real good! She will look a scream when that other top tooth comes out.
Right, I better go. I want to ring the Vet as soon as they open and try to get my Coco in there asap.
Things happen in 3's right? I totally agree with that.
1. Family trouble.
2. Kelly and Rena had a car accident on the way to school this morning. I THINK they are both OK.... but will have to wait and see. They were on their way to the hospital to be checked out when Kelly rang me.
3. ........ COCO?
3. COCO: has a mammary gland tumour. So, she is getting it removed on Thursday, along with being spayed. That decision was taken out of my hands (thankfully). She needs to be spayed so this sort of tumour is less likely to happen again.
That's HER sorted.
2. KELLY AND RENA:
ABOVE: T-boned on the left side, then shunted into the pole, damaging the right front. Kelly and Rena are both OK. Shaken, but OK.
I went out for a little while. I needed to just do something 'normal' and try and get stuff off me mind.
LYNDA: yes they do have insurance.
JEN: Thanks for the email, much appreciated.
Almost time for me to skid the wheels and get off to the Hospice Shop... just having a quick lunch first.
MAGPIE: TOO LATE. I'm already at the shop. I'll be ok. Thanks though for caring.
What a difference a few hours make.
Hospice was incredibly quiet this morning apparently. Not so this afternoon. I was BUSY as! And that's just as well because my head was all over the place.
Some relief though, things have settled down with 'Family Trouble', so I can relax a little.
I am looking forward to having a decent sleep tonight! So is Steve. Dante's unsettled nights are starting to take a toll.
I hope Steve can get a good night's sleep too.
Time for dinner. The family had Butter Chicken. I am having some veges and rice. I don't really like home made butter chicken.
End of Day: Well... today has been ... stressful to say the least. But, that's just how it goes sometimes.
I'm off to bed early tonight.
