This is just a quick blog to say hi to you all. I know from your blogs many of you are animal lovers ,so I hope you will understand what an anxious couple of days we have had , two nights ago D ,Mr vintage heart,took Fergal and Flora my furry babies for a walk and on returning home Flora began too be very unwell , her eyes sunk to the back of her head ,she was shacking uncontrollably and was,nt breathing very well, She is 15 years old, so an elderly old lady, but a doughty one at that, shes a terrier i Will say no more.. All of us thought she was dying and I felt so powerless and very scared for her, So a call to the vet and an agonising wait of 20 Min's before he could get to the surgery, i really thought he would say this was the end ,and she wouldn't be coming back with us, so when we arrived both the teenager and my self were trying not too cry, only D held it together..My son is 16 and has grown up with both dogs always been there , you know what teenagers are like , got to be cool at all times, so was glad to see the veneer drop and the real boy/man appear, .. The vet said it may be a stroke or a sever allergic reaction too some thing on her walk, , a air of uncertainy .So she was injected with all sorts too cover lots of possibilities and told to take her home , keep an eye on her ,and return in the morning , his parting words, this could go either way. But I am very glad to say after a very sleep less night ,I checked on her every hour or so, she made it through the night and is making a slow recovery, she has managed a little scrambled egg, and porridge and is receiving the best nursing care the vintage heart house can offer, she even managed a growl at the cats tonight, a good sing for Flora if not for the cats!! She has always been a naughty adorable joy and the only sadness she has brought in to our lives is the thought of loosing her, I know she is old and one day It will happen.. but not yet ..please..
