Willie has been totally confused by recent events around our home.
Of course, Willie is always a bit confused.
Chucks and I are very attached to our two dogs and two cats.
Willie and Scout are known as the Puppy Boys in our family.
It was supposed to be a normal semi-annual exam and rabies vaccination for Scout.
He was a bit sluggish after the visit.
He rapidly went down hill with a high fever.
No racing about the house, no king-of-the-sofa game with Willie, and no taco puppy playing.
No eating either. Then started a daily visit at the vet to check his blood cell counts.
The vaccination has thrown a hidden auto-immune disease into high gear - killing off blood cells as fast as his little body can make them.
He has had a tiny improvement, and he is eating McDonald cheeseburgers (Vet's orders!)
He has quite a regimen of meds including a chemo pill which is supposed to trick his immune system.
It will be a long six months to recovery.
We are hoping and praying for the best.
In the last three weeks we have had a hot water heater element burn out and then fixed.
The upstairs tub drain poured water into the down bath and foyer - partially fixed and patched for now.
An unused supply line underneath the house blew off its cap on Christmas Eve. Chucks cut the water off at the street - no water for Christmas Day which was okay since we had to stay home and take Scout to the vet.
$156 for a visit with a $3 charge for the new cap and it is fixed.
Who knew the day after Christmas is considered to be a holiday in plumbing world!?!
OF PEACE ON EARTH
There have been no pet alerts today (Saturday) and no plumbing disasters.
Just a pleasant lunch and a wee bit of shopping with two friends. Thanks, Julia and Patty!
And a chance to delight in my favorite Christmas gift - three Baby Jesus's, a Mary, and a Joseph. Thanks, Phyllis and Wayne!
