Friday I noticed that Idina looked funny. There was a big swollen area on the side of her jaw. We brought her to the vet and they said there was little they could do at that time. She appeared to have an abscess. They would have to drain it later, but it wasn’t ready. They gave us meds.
Saturday it looked worse – it looked like she had tried to swallow a football (American football ;) ) because the entire side of her face was so puffed up. But Sunday it looked better. And Monday better yet. Yesterday she went back to the vet. Still no fluid to drain, and swelling was much reduced. In the evening she looked almost normal.
She did run a slight fever on Friday, but for the most part acted like normal. It was great seeing her almost 100% yesterday.
So that is my smile, a sick puppy that is getting much better and is almost back to her old self, no matter how much a pain that old self is ;)
So, what made you smile this week? Write about it and post on the link-up (or click the little blue frog below). While you’re there, read what everyone else is smiling about! And come back to it later, if last week is any indication new smiles will be added daily!
Note – the weekly smile runs Wednesday Morning to Wednesday morning. I post in the morning (Eastern US) and put up the link usually between 7 and 8 AM EST. I also try to post on Sunday as a reminder. People can and do join throughout the week.
