I had to go back to the vet on Friday. It was a "recheck," but Mom knew my skin infection wasn't better yet.
The vet said Mom was right. Since the antibiotic upset my tummy so much, the vet gave me a new one instead. And she said to give me pepcid for my tummy. AND I need steroids now, too, to get better. Mom was counting down until we were done with those antibiotic pills...but now we have MORE pills for me to take instead of less! Yuck.
The vet also said I needed ointment for my ears since they're working on being on infected. And I got a yeast issue in my paw, so I need cream for that.
Mom says I'm just a hot little mess.
So when Mom and our neighbor were driving around yesterday, they saw this sign:
And they decided that I needed to get blessed. Now, Mom goes to a Methodist church and our neighbor goes to an Orthodox church. Pretty funny that they decided to take me to a Lutheran church for a blessing, huh?
A LOT of dogs were there to be blessed, though.
And some kitties. And a rabbit. And a gecko. And even a beta fish!
I pretty-much ignored everybody. That's how I roll.
Here's the pastor, starting the blessings.
Mom asked for extra prayers and blessings for my health issues.
Here's us after my blessing! (Exposed belly = so embarrassing!)
After the blessing, I was pretty excited to go home. We got in our neighbor's car and I decided to drive.
She was knocking on the door, but I didn't unlock it for her.
I finally relented, of course. And when we got home, I played with my frog for a bit.
And then I actually ate a lot of my supper -- more than I have been eating.
Now, I should probably point out that I haven't eaten much lately, nor have I played much. So Mom says it's surprising that I did both of those things tonight. Was it the blessing or maybe the new meds? Who knows. Mom says it doesn't matter what, just as long as I'm heading in the right direction now.
But I'm still embarrassed about that nekkid belly picture...
