I can usually make a joke, or find the joke in anything.
Totally inappropriate most times, but funny none the less.
I have to say it's been a few days since I've laughed.
I've managed a smile, but no heartfelt guffaws have been released.
Today we found out that my baby, Gabbi also has the parvovirus
despite being fully vaccinated and receiving a booster on Monday.
I feel like such a failure as a pet parent. I let her get sick by not
being educated enough, or diligent enough in keeping her safe.
But the option of having a vet care for her is completely out of the
question. We thought it was $900 for a week's stay at the vet.
More like $900 PER DAY!! We were seriously left with
no option but to care for the sick babies at home. So far we're about
$700 in for all the treatments and IVs, and pills. Too much money,
but far more palatable and reasonable than $900 per day.
Little Foxxi is starting to improve. She kept down water and food today
which is pretty huge. She only weighs 9 lbs to begin with, so keeping
her hydrated and fed proteins is a big step in the right direction.
Still lots of work ahead of us...
So, if I suddenly stop posting for the hops, you'll know why.
Two sick pups is no fun.
And leaves very little time to craft...
Which brings me to my artsy fartsy for the day.
I made a quick ATC using some Martha Stewart paper,
and a Kraftin' Kimmie image called, Mister Punkin Head.
I perched a glittery, puffy sticker raven on his hand (thanks, Deb),
and added a bat punch to the top for more dimension and interest.
Thanks so much for stopping by and listening to me whine.
I had such high hopes of making some incredible projects and posts
Being sick for the first half really set me back, and now with the
furkids, it keeps getting harder to keep up.
I've come this far, so I'm really hoping to see this through.
See ya tomorrow??
