It’s been a very tough couple of weeks, but thankfully both corgmom and our new furkid Sadie are getting healthy again. When we brought Sadie home from the shelter earlier this month, she had just been spayed. We found out that she had 6 almost full-term puppies taken, and lost a lot of blood in the process. She also had a bad case of kennel cough and had to be taken to the emergency vet for respiratory distress on the day she came home. She had to be segregated from Bonnie and Rikki for two weeks to make sure they didn’t catch anything. We’re just now getting the 3 furkids introduced, which should be interesting.
Corgmom had a root canal from 20 years ago get reinfected, and we found out just how lousy our dental insurance is under Medicare. Dentists don’t want to touch Medicare/Delta Dental patients, and as a result we had 3 separate trips to the emergency room to get IV antibiotics. The infection spread to the lower jaw, and she had a golf ball sized lump (very painful, too) that didn’t go away until yesterday. Oral surgery on Tuesday morning. The doctor agreed to extract the tooth at a reduced rate, or we would have been out of luck.
Anyway, pictures galore coming, and I apologize for going off the air for this amount of time. Family comes first. Nice to be back.
