Welcome to my regular Friday song/tune day, ladies and gentlemen, where I pick a piece of music that reflects my mood or the times, to share with you.
What a week it has been! Due to a series of unfortunate events, Makea dog found herself in a room alone with a lidless bin of dog kibble. As a result, she also found herself at the emergency vet for several days with an intestinal blockage and a gelatinous mass of dog kibble crushing her vital organs. Yep, she had bloat which is a serious medical emergency. After two days on IV fluids, she is home again and that mass is on the move. At least it was. I won’t be resting easy until she is back to her normal barky self. Touch wood, she has avoided complex and risky stomach surgery.
On the plus side, as a result of getting her bottom shaved due to the consequent bout of diarrhoea today, the vet found a lump next to her anus. As I am not in the habit of feeling around her bum, we might not have found the lump for quite some time yet. She is booked in for a lumpectomy in March.
Makea, don’t go breaking my heart. (The song is Don’t Go Breaking My Heart, sung by Elton John and Kikki Dee.)
The kitchen is now well and truly closed.
Protect the ones you love and stay safe, ladies and gentlemen.
