Full disclosure-the really bad words have been masked because there are puppies who read this (like Dui) and I had to tone down some of the curse words to make it acceptable for all audiences.
Today I was loaded into the Scottiemobile and we went off to the v*t. First I had a quick exam and blood drawn. The blood was to check my liver functions because the anti-inflammatory I’m taking, Rimadyl can have side effects. Some are diarrhea and vomiting (which is a waste of food in my view) or loss of appetite (moi?). I have none of those but it can affect the liver so we ran a liver panel. I’ve lost a little weight (now down to 9.8 kg, 21½ pounds). The v*t noticed that my enlarged lymph gland in my hind foot was larger and I got another needle in me so they got a sample of the fluid in it and will send it to the specialist v*t. We’ll know the results early next week.
The worst part of the entire thing as far as I was concerned was that I couldn’t have anything to eat since last night because of the blood work and didn’t get my breakfast until 10:30 when we got home. Forget the 2 needles and the thermometer up my pooper, the lack of food was unforgivable. I didn’t get green beans until 11 but I was assured that dinner will be at the normal time so I don’t have that long to wait.
At least something was looking up.
Oh Kyla the injustice of it all. No Breakfast until late. AT least Dinner will be on time That’s a good thing. I hope all of your reports come back 200% over the top great.
Yup, I hope it isn’t the melanoma in the lymph node. That would be bad.
Well crap that is what I say. That darn lymph gland needs to pick up the pace and drain and work to keep you healthy. Hear that Lymph Gland, SWTS is telling you to do your job and keep Kyla well.
Sweet William The Scot
Give that gland a good grrrrrrrrowl to make certain it knows you mean business.
Well, I can so relate to you being starved half to death. Not right one bit. Not one bit. I hope all the tests come back with good news.
Have a woof woof day. My best to your mom. 🙂
All Right! A fellow foodie!
We so hope all will be well. We need you to get better so you don’t have to got to the v*t!rnar%an. any more and be starved and pocked and jabbed. Poor you.
Best wishes Molly
It’s the starvation that really has me upset.
Jeepers – could we Scotties catch a break here?! It’s just all too much! We are sending POTP for both the test results and timeliness of your dinner – late meals…what a travesty! You take good care, Kyla, dear.
Edgar and his mum
Thanks Edgar-and a punctual mealtime to you. I know how important that is.
The horror…you were starved…oh the humanity. But you stayed strong and brave and continue to inspire the rest of us. I hope that when the chow came there were extra portions.
Nope, regular stuff. I did get extra treats at the v*t. I know where every treat jar is in that office.
That’s why I’m feeling out of sorts today. I knew something was amiss. I can feel it. I’m now channeling the POTP over to your place and a simple request for your peeps to FEED YOU NOW.
Sorry to yell…but a boyfriend’s gotta do what a boyfriend’s gotta do.
PeeS We’re not going to mention that “M” word anymore. Nope. Nada. Not gonna have it.
Oh, you can mention the “M” word. MORE treats, MORE food and MORE green beans.
Breakfast at 10:30 around here is called brunch and I don’t do brunch. I like my breakfast bright and early and right after I go take my morning pee.
Aroo to you,
I hear that one. I’m with you on that one. 10:30 is time for the mid-morning snack.
thanks for thinking of Dui, though we don’t know how innocent that boy is. We’ll keep our paws crossed for you.
When Dui went in for the snip, NONE of US could have breakfast! So unfair. Now that your weight is down, we think some more interesting treats should be on the menu.
Kaci and Kali told me that after I left for the v*t at 8:30, they got breakfast immediately. What’s with that? It’s discrimination against seniors.
We eat breakfast at 5:30 am. Sharp. No questions or excuses allowed. We are impressed that you waited until 10:30, even if forced. Oh the travesty of it all. And that ol lymph glad needs to take a hike. Sending POTP to you, dear Kyla.
Braeden and Seth
The problem with the lymph node isn’t just the lymph node. If bad, it means that the “C” has spread and that’s that. Eliminating the lymph node could be like taking a dollar from a billionaire.
Our vet is a holistic vet and he gives a liver supplement for pups on those kind of meds… Liquid Hepato… I takes it when I’s on ‘roids fur my itchies….
The v*t has me on hepagen-C and I suspect it’s basically the same stuff. He did double my dose from one pill a day to two. The v*t is holistic and I’m taking circumen, MRS and a green tea extract. I’ll do a look-see on the Hepato.
OK, I looked it up. It’s the same idea with the same stuff. I saw it billed as what to take for those who won’t take pills. I have no problem, put wet dog food around a pill and I wolf it down so fast I have bullet marks in my stomach.
No food for such a long time. That is terrible. We feel your pain. Hope that you get a good vet report quickly!
Me too-I’m getting sick of this.
Ya shoulda gotten double green beans for dat.
No, darn it all. I got the normal amount. Cheapskates.
The green beans are very welcome, but we bet they don’t make up for all that crap, you went through!
The Mad Scots
Pees: maybe SWTS and us need to make an air drop of food to you, be by the pool at 10;30 pm tonight!
10:30? Can’t make it. Have SWTS come by around 10:10.
OMD…. unacceptable. You need to rip up somethin (like your peeps slippers).
Ranger Fire up the chopter, we gonna make a food drop, how are you with a parachute?
Sus & Bites
Whoopes that’s a 20 not a 30, although if They had a 30
They don’t use slippers (They’ve learned). However Kaci nibbles at Their feet as They walk. I could do what I’ve done in the past-eat a $30 bill.
Thank you for sparing the children the horror of seeing such a horrid word written out.
Penny would have freaked.
I hope the specialist v*t has good news when he reads the fluid. Great that you had no problems with Rimadyl, we think it’s one of the best meds and we only made good experiences (by now) with the agent carprofen. I cross my paws for bestest news.
I’ll have to check out carprofen.
it’s the thingy what works in the rimadyl :o) I think it is better than the meds with cortisone…
I sure hope there were extra green beans for all the pain and suffering you went thru during that horrendous wait. I hope your paw is A OK. We will keep all our paws crossed. You do look very cute in your pics.
Alyssa, Mr. Fox & Scruffy
I forsee extra green beans for me.
No breakfast! That’s intolerable!
I hope they made up to you for it with a buffet afterwards!
