What a way to spend a Sunday!

Poor little Sweeny!

Last Sunday, Sweeny not having eaten for 3 days, it was felt that we could not leave it any longer and decided to take Sweeny to Southern Oregon Veterinary Specialty Center.  They are an emergency 24-hour a day service.  It turned out to be a longer day that we had anticipated.

For we arrived at 9:15 am and didn’t leave until 5:15 pm.

Even then we were still left with some uncertainty.

For the long rigmarole of tests didn’t come to a firm conclusion.

A part of the SOVMC invoice.

Luckily we could leave taking dear Sweeny back with us but the results from the Fine needle aspirate won’t be through until Tuesday or Wednesday. (P.S. Just heard by phone that the results should be through in the next hour. Ergo: Monday evening.)

If it is Tuesday that will be better than Wednesday.

For on Wednesday we leave for a short holiday in Mexico.

In fairness, the house is being looked after by Jana Stewart but it will still be better to know before we leave.

That leads me to say that for the next ten days the regularity of blogging is going to be variable; to say the least.

    1. Well there does seem to be a return to normal this morning, and that’s without reading the report from the vet, that suggests it was an eating disorder. For in the last few minutes dear Sweeny has been eating normally.


  1. Wow, that is a lot of tests! Sounds expensive too (especially just before your holiday).

    New Mexico sounds like a great place to spend a few days. I have never been there but have been to Arizona and Nevada.

    Wishing you both a great trip with much relaxation. Are you taking all the clan with you? Hope Sweeney is OK.

    On a completely different note, I found this in my inbox today, and thought it might be of some interest to you and Jean.


    It is supposed to help with Parkinsons

    Oh, and I also read elsewhere that the bacteria involved in periodontal (gum) disease, is the same bacteria involved in the brain plaques that form in dementia conditions.

    This might not be the best place to add this, but since you are leaving for hols, I didn’t want to forget to mention it. 🤔☺️♥️


    1. Oh Colette, thank you!

      Yes, it was terribly expensive but one really has no choice. At least Sweeny does seem to be OK!

      Thank you for your other items. They will make interesting reading as I will be taking my tablet with me. You are a very good friend!
