I had hoped to have this done earlier but either the laptop or the internet has been giving me issues. I dropped Essie off at the vet this morning. It took me almost five minutes to get her out of the car. Then when we got in the vestibule she just buried her face in me and shook. Yeah, I feel like crap right now. They are going to call me once she is out of surgery to let me know how it went and that she is ok. I can pick her up around 4:30pm.
Stella has been very sweet and gentle since I got home. I am both surprised and grateful. Moose is just Moose. He seems a little concerned that Essie is not with me but happier that I am home. I made myself a to do list that will keep me busy once Chris gets up.
We had a friend stop over unannounced yesterday around noon. It was good to see him even if his timing was off (I was getting into the shower when he pulled up). He stayed until around 3-3:30pm so about 3 hours.
I decided to tap my 401K for my car repairs and such. Not ideal but that will give us some breathing room. I need to stay home this first week because of Essie’s surgery. Since it is being considered a major surgery (which scares me because all they said about the size of the tumor was “massive” and if I am correct I think that is a good bit of her belly, she is too active to look as fat as she does so I think that once that is removed that is going to make a big difference to how she looks) I need to monitor her closely the first week. I have a meeting that I actually have to attend Thursday night and a funeral on Friday. Friday Chris should be up so he can keep an eye on her.
I’m going to stop here. I need to get on the phone and then get things going around the house. Thanks for reading and thank you so much for all the kind words and love! Stay safe!
