Oh my goodness! I can't believe it has been so long since I posted. Well my Sadie has gone backwards. We had to have the infection removed and stitched up. Thought that took care of it, but at Thursday's bandage change, the stitches had pulled out. So we were referred to Metropolitan Vet Specialists in Louisville. Sadie has been there before. She goes there for her heart issues.
After begging, I got an appointment on Friday. First, we had to check the heart. But I was totally expecting her to lose the toe. After tests on the heart, she couldn't tolerate being under anesthesia for very long. Plan B. They went in and cleaned out the wound and stitched it up again. But this time, a splint was placed on the leg, so the toes can't move. I am very thankful she didn't lose the toe. Her heart, however, isn't as good as it was in January. We are waiting on bloodwork to check her digoxin levels and see about changing her meds. Meanwhile, I am at the vet everyday again for bandage changes. A couple of weeks ago, they offered me a uniform. I may have to take them up on it!
On a personal note. I decided last week to join Weight Watchers. I have been thinking about it for a while now. My mood has been kind of foul these days, so I thought maybe if I lost some weight, I might feel better about things. I am debating about doing a follow along with my weight loss. I just don't know how I feel about putting my weight out there. I have done well this week as far as writing down what I eat and being truthful about it. Hope it pays off. Weigh in is Wednesday.
