So, I started writing my Phone Photo Friday post only to realize that it is not in fact Friday. I had to look and see what the date is, because I was so confused. It feels like that weird sense you get when you wake up in the middle of the night in a hotel room and have no idea where you are in the world.
To be fair my day started at 2:51am when I woke up to sit with Bumblebee. You see yesterday afternoon she fell off of the stairs, probably a four foot fall, onto her side. She is at least 14, so that kind of fall is no small business. When she fell into a snow bank she laid on her side as I ran to her, dazed she sat up and I helped her with her back legs. She has arthritis so this is something she sometimes needs help with. Anyway, she got up and seemed a little stiff, but mostly ok.
Then about half an hour later she puked. She was off for sure and super weak. Overnight she went to bed, but at 2:51 she was floundering and out of it. I was up with her all night just checking her breathing, searching the internet for the exact same scenario, and giving her pets and cuddles.
We took her to the vet first thing this morning, afraid for the worst. Thankfully the vet thinks she has just hurt herself, but not anything major...should recover. She has taken meds for pain and steroids to help with her injury. She seems a bit more perky already. Thank goodness!!!!
We know our days with Bumblebee are limited with her advanced age of at least 14. She is blind and has crazy arthritis, but mostly she is still her goofy and happy self. She still plays with Betty Sprinkles, schemes on how to sneak food from Elise and/or the cats. So we want her to have as many happy days or months or maybe even years as she can have. We were very happy to get some hopeful news.
Now if you will excuse me I am going to drink a billion gallons of coffee and tape my eyelids open. Ok...byeeeee
