Daisy is fine. Two trips to the vet in one week, antibiotics twice a day for two weeks, and some gross things I won't mention and now she is all fixed up. Poor little girl. Well, I guess I shouldn't say "little" girl, cause they weighed her and she was 74 or so pounds. Now I don't feel so bad that I can't lift her.

Well, it has been a crazy day for sure. Daisy has an ear infection so we went to the vet. Then we went to the park to play in the snow/mud. Came home and gave her a bath. Paul found a tick on her, which he promptly yanked off (all the internet sites say to do the opposite). Then at 9:45 pm I ran to WalMart to buy tick shampoo. He vaccuumed the floors with the nozzle (our belt is broke), I washed all her bedding, he gave her a second bath, and then I washed all the towels in hot water. Two baths later, and I am still freaking out. I've got the heebee-geebies.

The spot where we pulled the tick off has a big red sore, so I am freaking out wondering if the head is in do I tell....will it get infected...what if she gets Lyme disease??????????? Good thing I am not getting knocked up, because how can I handle kids if I can barely handle a dog?

OK, so I am taking hormones to try to get pregnant, which I know isn't helping my emotional state right now, but still. I wonder if she got it from the park, or if it came from the vet. We were sitting next to a really sick kitty. It was crying and the owner said she didn't know what was wrong with it.

Could it have laid eggs under her skin? In the house? In the bed? Ewwwweeeeeee!!!!!! And, was it from today, or was it there for a few days already?

Like I already said, freaking out here!!!

Same Old, Same Old

Nothing new going on here. Same old, same old. Although, we do have some grass peeking through the snow here and there, which is nice. I brought up a bunch of my seed trays and pots from the basement today and started to clear the sunroom out. Paul put the snowblower down in the basement for the season.
