Well, I start with what is bothering me the most at the moment. Our Dikkie Dik.
I got Jan to the point to go to the vet yesterday. We wanted to go in the afternoon, but I first had to get Dikkie into the house. So I whistling and calling yesterday in the garden and oh yes, he came near. But he stopped on the little roof of a neighbourshed, and that was it! I could do what I wanted, it seemed as if he felt there was going to happen something strange with him!
Luckely we had another chance, in early evening they had another walking-in consultation hour.
So I started around 16.30 calling Dikkie Dik. That took a lot of patience, but after a while, oh wonder he came to me. I took him into the room right away with closed door!
Around 18.30 we went to the vet. She is a very noce lady, she looked at him, told us that perhaps, only perhaps one of his kidneys could be the problem, but as easy something else. She took his temp, and he had a fever. Then she injected him with some sort of anti biotic, gave us some pills to give him starting Saturday, and told us to see him that would give a change. Keep him in during the night and if nothing changed after s few days, come again and then she suggested she would make an echo, to see if that would give some answers.
We went home again, I prepared a little saucer with some chicken filet(!) for him and a little water too in the room.
He wasn;t too happy about that, but finally he lay down and even slept a little. Also I manged to let him eat a few pieces of the filet, not much but it was a start.
This morning he was happy to get out of the room, but... stopped for a moment in the kitchen to drink a little bit and.....yes, he even had some chicken filet again, I first had to point it out to him, but then he did it all by himself.
Now he is out, I cannot keep him indoors, he has to do "his thing"outside, never was used to do it on a litter box.
Well, he did even looked a bit better this morning, so let's cross fingers, that the spiral keeps going up and that in a few days he will be eating by himself and much more again.
Pffew! I am a little reliefed, and so is Jan! By the way, going to the vet isn;t the cheapest thing to do! And still this one isn;t the most expensive. But if it helps, I am glad to pay!
They changed a bit Jan;s shifts, the shift on Sunday evening was redrawn, but in place he has now two double shifts, today, the morning and evening and tomorrow afternoon and evening.
It's a bit long, but hey, now he comes to an acceptable amount of hours.
eather has definately changed now, today there is much more wind, temps aren;t too high, around
62-63 F. Even there is expected some rain, so not all too nice for Jan being a lot outside.
Perhaps the sun will come out in the afternoon, shich will look at least a bit friendlier.
It might be a temporarely dip, LOL, who knows, somewhere next week it might be better again. You can count with it, this change, it;s the time of year for it. But I hope there is still some nice autumn weather in store!
Yesterday I took a "free"day, LOL, well, I wasn;t much in the mood for anything with Dikkie Dik's situation, so Jan had his paper reading day and an extra nap, and I spent a lot of time at the computer. Today must be different, have to do a bit of shopping and some household chores, perhaps, and prepare early dinner. May be I leave the chores for tomorrow afternoon.
Wednesday I already did some things like a clean of the toiletroom and a vacuumsweep through the house and such.
Yes, now it's freebie time ROFL.
From Arlene lovely clusters made with the "Make a Wish kit"and my kit is a seaon related one again, because I love those warm autumn colors. So here is Change of Season and I can promise you that I have one more Autumn kit in store for you!
Have a great weekend, thanks by the way for all your sweet support and compassion concerning Dikkie Dik!
