Project 365 week 5

Sunday

Worked a straight through shift today, no break in the middle, beats sitting around for two hours between shifts and finishes at the same time so a win win really.
When I got home from work Lilly did not rush to meet me, I got a very feeble wag from the couch but that was it. Hubby said she had not been right all day. Unable to jump up on the couch or our bed and could not get up or down the stairs either. Something not quite right.

Monday

Took Lilly to the vet. Took him a list of things we had noticed that was different about her, symptoms if you like that may or may not be related but might help to get a bigger picture. She is running a temperature but he could not find much else wrong. He gave her a very thorough check over, listened to her breath etc.  He took some bloods that I posted so they would get lifted tonight and the results back tomorrow. Also gave her an antibiotic injection.  Wee horror did manage to get up the stairs after we came back.
Sadly this meant Bob did not get to his gymnastics.

Tuesday

Blood results show she has an infection but thankfully nothing more sinister. She still has a temperature but lower than yesterday. So he gave her another antibiotic injection, and gave me a sample bottle to get a urine sample from her.  She is a poor eater at the best of times but tonight's tea was spewed on my living room carpet. Still needed help up the stairs and just went on her bed in the corner.

Got three twenty minute workouts done later on in the evening. Rung the changes and finished with a yoga one.

Wednesday

Neighbours must have thought me mad following Lilly round the garden with a frying pan trying to stick it under her and catch a sample in it. Managed to get a dribble, but was dribble enough. Her urine was clear and her temperature normal. She is feeling better today and is managing up and down the stairs and in and out the back door. Even ran to meet us when we got back from the town earlier. Nice to see her on the mend, Another antibiotic injection and 4 tablets, 1 each for the next 4 days.Pit them in her food he says......hmm she is not eating so going to be difficult.

antibiotics for Lilly






Thursday

How do you get a tablet into a dog that is not eating? Luckily I managed to get her to eat about a sixth of a tin of tuna with her tablet on it, but she would not eat any more.
Have not seen the twins properly for a while. So I walked down to get them, took them to the park and then brought them up to see Granddad and Lilly and to play up here for a while. Gave my daughter a break if nothing else. Dinky is making noises by banging her wellies on the slide and laughing and Minky is copying what he sees the bigger children doing.




fun in the park



Friday

Bob is back at Centre Stage doing his rehearsals for the show later this year. So I said I would watch the twins save them having to go. So we went to the park and then they did some arts and crafts.Dinky managed to get quite a bit stuck on her person shape, Minky was more interested in cutting up the foam shapes. We then read the library books they had got this morning.

Saturday

Was not happy with the diamond quilt shape I made last week, I had lost the point off of the diamonds, so practised another one this week and was a lot happier with the result. The materials together are a bit OTT but it was a quick way of refining what I was not happy with.


no cut off corners

  2. Aww! Poor Lilly. It's awful well pets are unwell. They can't say what is wrong with them. I hope she is better now.
    The twins look like they were having a great time at the park.
    I'm really liking your quilting. The pattern is fab x

    1. They love the park, but difficult for daughter to take them and run between them when she has Spud as well.
      Felt the pattern was a bit garish

  3. The quilt looks good. I can't imagine trying to get a wee sample from a cat, let alone a dog. I hope Lilly is feeling brighter soon #365

  4. Poor Lilly! Glad she is on the mend now. It's so hard getting medication into animals (or small children, I find!). Love the photo of the twins on the slide and your quilting looks great!

  5. sorry to hear Lilly is unwell, i hope she starts eating again soon, bless her. I must admit I did have a good laugh at the thought of you chasing her around the garden with a frying pan, whatever must the neighbours have thought?

  8. Poor Lily. There are so many bugs going around, for people and dogs it seems like. Glad she's reacting well to the anti-biotics. You painted a brilliant image in my mind of you chasing her around the garden with a frying pan whilst she's cocking a leg! very funny!!
    It's lovely that you live so close to your grandchildren. That must made for a super special bond.
    Have a lovely week

  9. Sounds like you've had a rough week. Sorry to hear about Lily but glad she's better better now.

  10. Oh no! Really hope Lily is feeling better now. I laugh when the vet tells us to put tablets in the food...they eat around it! We found Pill Pockets which taste like chicken treats and the tablet pop inside. :)

    1. Yes Lilly will eat round the bits she does not like or take them out the dish and drop them on the floor.

  11. I hope Lilly is on the way to recovery soon. Always a bit of a worry when a pet is ill.
