Next up Sadie. Sadie is a crazy fool. She runs everywhere. After a run in the yard a couple of weeks ago, it appeared that she had an intermittent limp. I was watching constantly. Is she limping, isn't she limping. We all know what the greyhound limp can mean. I was sick. Couldn't sleep. Finally, I decided to go to the vet. Of course, with a wing named after me, they love me there. They examined Sadie. Just one little spot that they could get a little reaction out of. Of course, they know me, and knew I would want an x-ray. Being the smart woman that I am, of course, I withheld food before we went. I knew that getting an x-ray would be the only way I would ever sleep again. I picked up Miss Sadie and went to Sonic. I was a little concerned that she didn't want her burger. She was a little stiff and sore from the vet visit. When the vet called me she said x-ray looked clear, but we need to have it read by the radiologist to be sure. Of course, we do. They just called and said there were no changes or suspicious areas on the x-ray. So I think we are in the clear. Perhaps it is a soft tissue injury or an old racing injury. Sadie was a pretty good little racer. So for now, all is good in my world.
P.S. 3:30 This afternoon, I noticed Tom licking his foot. Look and his toes are all stuck together. Get it cleaned up and it is red and raw and oozing. Now, he just had his nails done yesterday morning. How the hell does this happen? Since I am leaving town in the morning, I decided I better take him in. Good thing I did, because it was already showing signs of infection. Back on anti-biotics, flush twice dailly and follow up with medicated ointment. Is this week over yet?
