…all I had to do was Google.
Of course, this I realise after I forked out R600 for all of 10 minutes, an injection and a packet of anti-nausea pills.
Came across this article that describes the symptoms exactly. The vet did not even touch the old man, told me immediately what the problem was. Of course then she uttered something that sounded like $$$$$$$$ but was really “I’m worried about the state of his liver. See the extended part around his abdomen? That’s his liver. Who know’s what’s happening in his old body” Verbatim.
And now he’s home again. Refused to be confined at all. Insists on crawling out and around everything we shove at him. Short of locking him up in the outside loo, I don’t see what else can be done. I’m trying not to leave the house too often, because then he wants to move around to and that’s just painful to watch!!
We did make it to the book sale though. Of course, nothing I really wanted, or even had to have, but I got hold of a bunch of books I would not otherwise have spent money on, and that’s an ideal way to broaden your reading horisons I’d say!
Had Chinese last night with the kid – and we ate it with chopsticks 😉 Not something I usually do, a fork being much easier to handle than chopsticks can ever be, but it was a novelty experience and since I actually can eat with them, why the heck not! Of course, supper was accompanied with Abraham Lincoln, vampire hunter and Paranorman. Both cute movies, and well worth the money spent on renting them. Inaugurated the new DVD player properly last night – not a single hassle to be seen! And dessert – flamed marshmallows with chocolate sauce. A meal for for a king!
since I slept little if at all last night, worried about the old man, I think an afternoon nap is in order. Since tomorrow is also an off day, and I can do the washing then 😉
Hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday afternoon!
