Autumn 2010

feel better winston.

We're going to the vet today.

His diarrhea and vomiting won't stop. Even after not giving him solid food for a day and a half, I still work up at 5.30 this morning to vomit and diarrhea. I'm so worried now. Because of the darkness of his stool my grandmother (who works with dogs) thinks he may have eaten something that cut his intestines and now he has blood in his digestive system.

We have an appointment at 1pm with my vet, and then I somehow have to make it all the way back into town to do a presentation for my philosophy class at 3pm -- I have no idea how I'm going to do all of this.

I just want to cry.

a winston update.

We went out to my vet and they are monitoring him over night. He threw up on the way there and had blood in his stool when I took him outside while we were waiting to see the doctor.

So, my poor dehydrated baby is hooked up to an IV (could I be more traumatized?) and they have done blood work -- I'm waiting for the results right now. They will monitor him further to see if he needs x-rays. I promise to update when I know more.

I wish I could be there with him, but at this point I'm so worried that he'd just be stressed if I was near him. So, I'm going to wait to hear from the vet and hope for the best -- hope that they don't need to do x-rays and that they've found the problem.

I hate this waiting game. Send love!

cute cards.

I just wanted to remind everyone that my Boston Terrier note cards are still available for anyone interested. Pass the word along to friends and family! Thanks to everyone in the community for being so supportive for Winston and I while he's at the vet as well. You guys are all just so great.
