We had a rough weekend. On Friday night, our dog Zeke starting vomiting shortly after supper and kept it up all night till almost 4am-- I was up with him.
He finally went to sleep at about 4 and when I got up at noon, I found that DH had fed him before going out to do some carpentry work for a friend that morning, and that set off a new round of vomiting.
I found vomit in three places around the house, so I called our vet and was instructed to bring Zeke in. To make a long story short, they wanted to give him some IV fluids and something to settle his stomach, and then keep him overnight, so we agreed. Not only for his sake, but for mine, I didn't want to be up all night again, cleaning vomit. (turned out I couldn't sleep anyway because of worry, but that's another story)
In the morning we agreed that he would remain there throughout Sunday being fed small amounts of a prescription food, and if he held that down until the end of the day, he could come home.
That worked, and he is back home with a four-day supply of his RX food and some Pepcid, which he has twice a day. Last night I slept well for the first time since Thursday night. So far, so good.
DH took today off as he came down with a cold in the middle of all of this- added to the stress of the dog, I think he just needed a day. Anyway, we took Zeke and Beau on a quick jaunt through the woods, off-leash. Zeke zoomed around and seemed to be feeling great. I did some jogging intervals and it felt good to be moving as we missed the gym Sunday from being fried over Zeke.
It was only about a mile but the snow made it hard to do-- like running in the sand. The fresh air was great too and it was not that cold today. It was good to enjoy that together.
I hated leaving Zeke at the vet as he was a rescue and the kennels there are like the dog pound. I was afraid he would think he had been abandoned again. It broke my heart to leave him.
You've never seen such a happy dog when we came to pick him up. The vet tech said when he heard our voices, he went ape-shit. When he got home, he went through the whole house smelling everything to see if anything good happened while he was gone.
This morning, DH and I cleaned out our bedroom closets together and then brought a whole bunch of stuff to Goodwill. I have plenty on room for new clothes in SMALLER sizes now!
Anyway, I tried to upload some pics of Zeke, cuddled up next to his "daddy" but I can't get the google photo uploader to work today.
Tomorrow, I will probably do both the work-out I missed Sunday and the one that I would normally do on Tuesdays, to get myself caught up. Believe it or not I can see and feel changes in my body already.
Hope you all had a good weekend!
