Monday Morning Blues

I took Sweetheart to Dr. Kolar's this morning.  He examined her and took her temperature.  She has a slight fever and the bottom part of the wound is infected.  Her leg is swollen due to the infection.

He is going to keep her for a few days to try and get that infection gone and her leg back to normal size.  He put a 'cone of shame' on her and she just looked at my with 'why me' eyes. 

Poor girl.  I feel bad for her but I feel better with her being at Kolar's.  I would hated to have brought her home today and had her take a turn for the worse.  At least while she is there they can watch her and treat anything that may come up right then.

Dr. Kolar did say the bottom half of the wound will have to heal as an open wound since it is infected.  We know Sweetheart can heal well, look at her leg.  But still, I am just heartsick for her.  All I did this weekend was sat around worrying. 

Jess and Sweetheart


  1. Poor Sweetheart. Song and I are sending her hugs and we hope she's home soon.

  2. Right there with you, Jess. It's so good that she is comfortable being with Dr. Kolar and staff, as well as having the best care! It's so hard to see them sick/injured. She will be back to her silly, happy self soon, I'm sure. thinking of you, Peggy

  3. I'm sure she will be her silly old self again soon. She is a trooper for sure!

  4. She is a tough girl. The house feels empty without her. I hope she is doing well tonight. I will call and check on her tomorrow morning sometime.
