Home for the Night....

Hey Everybody...Mumsie here...Lacie was up almost all night last night...(we're on night number four of no sleep...) she was still passing blood and vomiting...this morning she still wouldn't eat so I took her to the vetties today...she was dehydrated from all the vomiting etc...heavy on the etc!

They took xrays and gave her IV antibiotics and fluids all day. I picked her up for the night with her IV still in...a lampshade is in her future for her night, poor girl. She has to go back in the morning for more fluids...she tossed her cookies in the parking lot again and in my car...all over my nursing uniform....not the first time for that uniform to have the barfoshower!!

They didn't see anything on the xrays and nothing has cultured out either...hmm...sounds like they just don't know...

She's in a VERY BAD MOOD...as you can see this unattractive hospital gown does nuthin' for her...the boyz can't get near her...teeth are bared!!

Thank dog the nurses are all here 'cept for Snickers who had to return home with another visit from that nasty seizure monster....Auntie Bailey seems to be keeping the strictest order in the sick room...I may need to starch my scrubs...sigh...I just wish she'd give me back my Coke Zero....

Thank you all EVER SO MUCH for so many wonderful wishes!!! You are just the BEST!!!

We'll keep ya posted!

Love and kisses...Mumsie and the rest of the crew!

Ahh Mumsie, we had no idea that Lacie's exorcism was going to be so rough on all of you.

Seriously, we're worried about the little girl and hope that this is resolved quickly and with a happy outcome for all. Hope she settles in for the night and gives you and her tummy a rest.

Lots of love,

Petey and Mommy (And Mica, too)

Mango said...

Aw, Lacie, did the IV give you a hump back? That would make any of your outfits look less than flattering.

I have to say, I am now worried about your little self. All that barfing and shooting blood out your butt. Enough already.

I imagine you must be grouchy and the boys might be reacting badly to your somewhat compromised state.

Don't be scared. Your mom will get to the, uh, bottom of things for sure.

Slobbers,
Mango

Gus said...

We hope that you ALL get some good rest tonight, and that Lacie is feelin a little better in the mawnin'. Muzzer says that the nursies worked wonders for Teka, but that Lacie and her blender were what helped her most. So we have packed up the remains of the blender (we went through two that weekend) and also the nonperishable smoothie ingredients, and we are sending them on their way to you posthaste. Hope they help.

Lacie, we're sorry to hear you feel so bad. Have you tried plain pumpkin for your dia-maria? DawgMom gives us some of that when she visits us. It always helpsus chase that old gal dia-maria away. Just make sure it's plain pumpkin, not that kind the hoomans use to make pie with. Paws crossed for you here in TN

Moco said...

This is quite a mystery. The circle of healing vibes is going non-stop for the poor Laciegirl. Hopefully her bowels are not in a knot and she isn't pooing around an impaction.

Poor Lacie, we are so sorry to hear that your are still poorly and have been at the nasty vets. Poor Mumsie, you must be exhausted and worried!
We are all thinking of you - keep Auntie Bailey with you and tell her to lend Lacie her bloomers. Those hospital gowns are not the warmest!
love and kisses
Martha, Bailey and Mum xx

Toffee said...

Oh no! Lacie girl!
My paws are crossed for you!
If you need any help you are more than welcome to call my mom (Asta has her cell # and so does Agatha).

Does your vettie have Cerenia (maropitant) - it works really well for nausea. Did they do bloodwork? Is everyone else okay?

Jake of Florida said...

Hey Lacie,

We hope you're feeling better this morning and that you can change out of that atrocious excuse for a nightgown!! And sleeping with a lampshade on isn't very pleasant either -- we remember!!

Lots of love to Mumsie and all the nursies --

Jake and Just Harry

Deetz said...

Oh my lord...I am so very worried....Sounds very scary...I sure hope she gets to feeling better really soon. My paws are crossed.

Daniella said...

So sorry to hear about Lacie. We will pray for her quick recovery!! Try not to worry too much humans - doggie illnesses can be so weird. Remember when Ax went lame for 30 hours...could NOT move at all? It scared the bejesus out of us, spent hours at the vet and then it just passed and he was 100%. It was so frightening.
Lacie, stop being a grouch and get better fast - that's the message from Ax.

Dani and Ax

Ruby Bleu said...

Oh Mumsie...
I've been so worried...I was up all night just thinking about Lacie. Please, if you can get near her, give her a snuggle for me and tel her I'm thinking good - healthy thoughts for her.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Lucia said...

Lacie, mia cara,

Make the boys fluff up your pillows and bring you a saucy sleep mask, then try get some rest! In the meantime, I'll be keeping my paws crossed that you'll be feeling molto better soon.

Tanti baci!
Lucia

Pearl said...

HI LACIE! You don't know me, but I saw on my friend Joe Stain's bloggie that you are stainin' out of your hiney! Poor girl!

I think we can totally be friends. I am a bit of a diva... it seems we might have that in common?

No time to be making new friends right now, though. GET BETTER cute girl! I am thinking of you!

Eric said...

Lacie girl!! OK. OK .YOU WIN. I really AM shaking in my boots ...but for you sweet girl. Get better at ONCE!!! I hear Auntie Martha is knitting you some botany wool Dye You Ears Bloomers to wear under that nightee. Not meant to bark that to you but thought it would encourage you to get better....so please do.

Love and Kissies. Eric and B xxx

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Poor Lacie -- it's awful when something is wrong and nobody can figure it out. Hope she gets better soon.
