I’m sorry I forgot to do a Rita update. I’m a terrible mom. I can’t even remember what day it was that Vince took her to the vet and she had to spend the night. I think it was Tuesday. He was able to pick her up Wednesday afternoon. The vet said she ate fine for him on Tuesday night. He gave her two more meds that Vince has had to squirt into her mouth by syringe. That may be because she has so few teeth or it may just be the kinds of meds. I don’t know if it was a tummy med, or an antibiotic or something to help her relax.
She’s been doing fine otherwise. Her reaction to my arrival was a little subdued so maybe the meds have calmed her a bit.
She gets her stitches out Monday and the vet will check her out then and see how she’s doing overall I suppose.
Thanks for asking and again, sorry to send out the alert that she was in the hospital and not followup. Having no internet at the house was bad . . having a cell phone that only worked from a couple of windows . . I thought those days were over but apparently not.
Chad and Nicole live smack dab in the middle of town and apparently there’s no overlapping of the cell phone signals and that seem to be in that thin line where there’s very little cell service so when their phones ring, they grab them and run outside to the spot where they know they can often get a signal. At our new house, the phone works if it’s sitting in a breakfast room window. That’s it! So, during the night, no matter which bedroom I slept in, I had no cell service and that was a bit unnerving . . with me being such a big chicken. One we get internet, we can keep it on wifi calling and hope someday, cell service will get better there.
