Thursday Morning: My beautiful girl, Maggie, has gone home to heaven. I'm Ok, just going inside myself for a little while.
Thurdsday Night: A friend found my purse where I had dropped it in a car park - and I am getting everything back, including the cash. I had not even cancelled most cards.
I started this blog to focus on art and animals and with the aim of focussing on the positive. This week is beyond blah so I will simply give you a quick update and be back when the wheel turns.
Maggie has had two feet of bowel removed yesterday in major surgery. Apparently the improvement we saw on Sunday was a result of the relief felt when her bowel perforated. The vets said if she survived last night she had a 50% chance. I have just left her tonight and she is as well as can be expected - but they won't improve the odds for at least another 5 days. The perforation led to peritonities (sp?) - that is a lot of infection.
To add to the blah I have managed to lose my purse today. At a time when what will become thousands of dollars are being committed to Miss M, this is a huge issue. I don't think it was stolen - I think in my tired haze I have left it somewhere silly. However I am going to have to cancel cards if I do not find it soon.
I am spending as much time as possible sitting in Maggie's cage at the vet, and trying to give little Archer time too - while turning up for school occasionally. Life is busy.
Those of you who pray, then please pray for my Maggie, for the irritating cough I have, for finances and that I would find my purse. Please also give thanks that Maggie has made it this far, that there are wonderful vets caring for her and that so many lovely people are helping out walking and dog sitting Archer.
