It’s no longer all about me.
It’s about us
As of today, Daisy is off Benadryl and the antibiotics. I’m not sure she ever really needed the antibiotics, so we aren’t going to finish them.
Daisy is using all her feet! As of Monday evening; in addition to the Benadryl, we’ve doubled her antibiotics and started her on Prednisone.
The Vet isn’t certain if Daisy got stung or has irritated an itchy spot. Starting this afternoon, she’s to get 4 (100 mg total) of Benadryl every 8 hours three times. I’ve got some spray to relieve the itching as well as antibiotics – just in case, since she’s got so many little sores. I’m going to try some of that spray on the spots that Mollie is licking incessantly. Willow and Mollie got to go to PupTown today, but Daisy had to stay home and rest that foot. Unfortunately, the Groomer is booked so Mollie will have to wait two more weeks to get a bath and haircut.
Late this morning, Daisy stopped using her right front leg. I called the Vet to make an appointment for tomorrow morning, put a glob of antiseptic ointment on the foot and covered it with a sock.
To my delight, Steve and I proved ourselves capable of getting stuff done in a very BIG way! I met with my Trainer at the Marsh. Then we set out on our errands: A foot evaluation for Steve with the Pedorthist and some new shoes from Schuler Shoes. Steve needs new glasses and we picked out new frames. Lunch at Byerly’s in Golden Valley. Meeting with our Lawyer, also in attendance was my Financial Advisor. Bought a new mattress to be delivered to the new house. We were on a roll, so we drove up to Welcome Amish Furniture in Albertville where we picked out a new bed and nightstands. We celebrated our productivity with pizza and red wine for dinner!
Avery and I did some back-to-school shopping at Macy’s, visited my Dad for a bit then met my Mom for lunch at Scotty B’s. The Vet recommended 2 Benadryl every 8 hours rather than the 1 every 4 hour schedule we were on.
Daisy is in full-on itch mode. I’m going to increase her evening Benadryl.
