It is only the third of April and I already feel like I'm behind the eight ball. The last few days have been rough.
Saturday morning, we went to the Urgent Care in the next county. I don't even think there is one in my county. I was pretty sick. I'm still not sure what it was/is. The doctor prescribed an antibiotic because he thought I needed one and hopefully I am on the mend.
Saturday late afternoon, Little Bear decided that she could fly. Well, she was wrong. Outside, she jumped up onto a few different things and then onto brick wall and took a flying leap off. The wall was about 5 1/2 feet off the ground. She did land on her feet but started limping a tiny bit later that evening.
Sunday morning, she was not able to put her front left paw down at all so off we went to the one Animal Hospital that was open on Sunday (two counties away). Little Bear was given some pain medication and had x-rays taken. The doctor said that she didn't break or fracture her legs (thank God!) but she either has soft tissue damage and/or slipped a disc in her back. Time will tell how much damage was caused from her fall. We were sent home (after 4 hours) with three medications for her: a pain medication, a muscle relaxant, and an anti-inflammatory medication.
She is a little out of it on all her medications. I have to write them all down each time I give them to her so I don't forget and accidentally give her the wrong one at the wrong time. We are supposed to keep her calm and no jumping or running. Like that is going to happen. She lives to jump and run. We've blocked all the furniture again like we did when she had her surgery and have so far kept her as calm as possible.
I'm still not feeling very well. I was supposed to rest and drink plenty of clear fluids and take my antibiotic. Being at the animal hospital so long kind of messed that up but I'm doing my best.
And for some reason, my crochet surprise project is a disaster. I have been working on it but have ended up taking it apart and starting over (at least 4 times). I'm wondering if the pattern is wrong. I'm not going to have it done for the shower by Saturday. I was getting very frustrated and discouraged with it so I've decided just put it aside for now.
So far, April has been no joke. I remember that God's mercies have no end and they are new every morning.
