  1. Not Good News

    February 8, 2010 by myeye

    I am grateful that I kept baby Holmes,  as it turns out that he and Watson are the last of Phoebe’s children.   Phoebe has been picking at her food the past couple of days — which I chalked up to pregnancy.  She hasn’t seemed very perky — which I chalked up to pregnancy.  Last night she refused a slice of banana — whoa!  I can’t imagine pregnancy causing that.  This morning she did not look well.  Her eyes were strange, out of focus, and with some discharge.  I called the vet and he fit me in at 2:30.  X-rays and ultrasound later — there are no puppies, there was a firm mass in one horn of the uterus.  Phoebe was promptly taken to surgery and spayed; she had pyometra.  The large firm mass was an encased glob of non-resorbable sutures from a prior C-section.  Her white blood count was very high and the toxicity in her body was creating pressure behind her eyes.  Poor Phebes.  I feel so badly.

    She is fine, well hydrated, on pain meds, spending the night at my vet’s office.  I’ll fetch her in the morning.  She’ll be staying downstairs — I just can’t carry another dog up and down stairs.

    We’re so sad though 🙁

  2. Busy Out

    My interview with Channel 7 is here.  I’ve not watched it yet.  I fell asleep last night on the couch and awakened after the news was all over.  In any event, the video will give you some more information about the case that is taking every waking moment (and some of what should be sleeping moments).

    I did watch THE SAINTS beat up on the Colts.  And on Saturday, I listened to the Lady Lobos knock off San Diego State University.  They’ve gone through the top three teams in the Mountain West conference and put themselves back in the race for the conference title — GO LOBOS!!!

    Chase’s weekend in Hobbs was completely unsuccessful, but he’s home and happy.  He is today’s office dog.

    Now playing catch-up . . .
