And, now we wait…
Jernee is unwell. We have been in between flits of sleep since 2:30 a.m. I do not know the source of her pain, why the vomiting began. I am a problem solver. If I cannot solve the problem, I can point you in the direction of one who can. But, when it comes to the love of my life, I want to solve her problems.
And this morning, I cannot.
On Sunday, July 31, 2016, I spent the bulk of my morning at Carolina Veterinary Specialists where the kind Tech and Veterinarian cared for Jernee as she had a major hives breakout. A steroid injection, along with a maximum strength dose of Benadryl was administered to the Little Monster. They were vocal and explained every step they intended to take regarding her care and
I was most appreciative.
The Doctor advised me that within the week, if she started vomiting, to bring her straight in. We are just outside of that one week, but there is vomiting. Constant vomiting. I am concerned. So, this morning, I will call, we will ready ourselves, and I will spend yet another morning (and however long I need to) there with the great folks who tended to Jernee a little over a week ago. She is in my bed. The position in which you see her pictured above is how she has been for the last two hours.
My hallway is our puke-station. I’ve hauled her away from the bed, shot out of the door, and into the hallway on the fake wood floor where she could spew out what is now liquid-like bile and bits of last night’s supper. Each time, my heart sinks. She is no stranger to a bit of vomiting, but not like this. I administered one dose of Famotidine, 10mg about two hours ago, and she seems to be holding out just a bit, but the weakness in her eyes tells me this will go on all day if she is not treated.
I cannot have that. Not my baby.
There will be bloodwork, some tests, this is what they informed me would occur if vomiting started. Well, vomiting is here. And, it is not welcome.
Not on my turf.
Peace, good people. You may or may not relate to this, but I am asking you to keep my little one in your thoughts and if you pray, in your prayers. Thank you.
