It has been a while since I posted mainly because I didn’t think that people would be interested in trivia.
Actually life has been anything but routine. I noticed that Trudy’s bed showed signs of discharge, some blood and what looked like pus. I decided to take her to the vet. Pyrometra was diagnosed. Antibiotics given and a return to the vet the following day to have her womb removed. I felt so bad not giving her any food or water at breakfast time. Ordered to pick up at 5.45. The next hurdle was getting her home. She’s too heavy for me to lift, daughter incapacitated and son in law sore back, and then an angel appeared. My dog walker from The Cinnamon Trust. He lifted her in the car and then out. He even offered to take her back to the vets a couple of days later for a check up.
I’ve not ventured out for several weeks as I wanted to give her the time to heal. I have therefore not used my car and I’ve now got a flat battery again. Rescue guy appeared who said perhaps there’s a problem with the battery. I’ll get that checked out.
Late Saturday evening my mobile rang. Didn’t answer it because I didn’t recognise the number. I should have. I’m listed as a point of contact in case of falls, accidents etc to my next door neighbour. Luckily my daughter answered and quickly pulled on some clothes over her pyjamas and rushed up.Paramedics in attendance. She is such a brave old lady, and very lucky she hadn’t done herself any serious damage.
Cooked lunch and kept a general eye. Managed to contact Social Services with Mary talking to them. I was so cross when they suggested exercises and not much guidance for making her flat safer. Finally they agreed to send someone to assess her needs. Let’s hope we can get some extra help even a few grab handles or something.
She’s off to doctors this morning as her blood pressure is still high.
Chilly chilly today. Wrap up warm and be kind. The buzz word at present it seems.
