Roxy and Rain Update!
Tuesday, February 26, 2013
Well - the first best thing that happened today was that I woke up at 5:15 and it wasn't raining in my bedroom!! Woohoo! So - I rolled my booty out of that bed and got 30 minutes on the recumbent bike!!
Then I got all my morning stuff done and was out the door shortly after 7:00 to the Vet's office with chicken and rice for our baby girl....
When I arrived - who do I see outside - doing her business and walking under her own steam?? And who recognizes me from across the parking lot - even though we've only had her 5 days???? And who looks SO MUCH better???? That'd be ROXY!!
So - I was a happy camper this morning. I left there and as luck would have it - Starbucks is on my way to work from the Vet's - so I popped in for (3) skinny vanilla lattes for me and the other two girls in the office - that way - even if I'm a little late - I wasn't the late girl - I was the chick who showed up with (healthified ) Starbucks!! Then I stopped for gas because my "feed me" light was on and STILL I was at work by 10 minutes to 8:00.
This afternoon I found out that Roxy was being upgraded to Out Patient Status!! She got to come home tonight with a ton of meds - and is to go back tomorrow morning for more blood work and monitoring - but she gets to sleep in her own bed tonight!! And guess what - this girl is on fire!!! She is a whole new dog. In fact I'm wondering what the heck I was thinking in getting another one - she is pretty active....a side we had not seen!! But she ate and we got all her meds in her and everyone is happy tonight!!
And I am grateful she has to go back tomorrow so I know that someone will be looking out for her while I'm at work!!
So - as awful as yesterday was----today was just that much better!! The roofer was supposed to back her today also - but I have not had confirmation of that yet.
I am so darn blessed!!!
