Best of luck, Vyncheghnt!

 

Well, a truly sad weekend. We suddenly had to rush our big, beautiful brown tabby gentleman into the vet to have him put to sleep yesterday afternoon. Even when an animal is well into seniorhood, it is ALWAYS a shock -- an unexpected, horrible surprise, it seems. :(  :( Liver failure.....nothing could be done. The truly awful part about all of this is that Jack is in Toronto visiting my brother this weekend, and has no idea. We couldn't wait -- Bryce was in too much pain. DH, DD and I were there, holding him when he died, but Jack wasn't. Jack is having such a great weekend away, I just couldn't call him with this news.There are others that Sophie and I would like to tell on fb, but there's no way right now, as Jack will see it all. He does not come on here, so I feel safe letting this all out to you guys.

I have to tell Jack when he gets off the train tonight. So, so sad..... VERY unpsilly!!

Holy ship is right!

 

Goooo Vincent!

 

I am so sorry for your loss.  You did what was right for the gentleman tabby.  To have that compassion is one of the toughest things to do.

 

We did not get any baby bunnies.  All is not lost.  There seems to be no other health issues for the bun, just a miss.

 

We do have some lovely baby guinea pigs! They are Texels.  Check out some pictures on-line.  I would post, but they are babies and have not fully grown their coats.  Nothing is funnier than seeing these pigs walk away from you.  Looks like a wig of dreadlocks moving accross the floor with a little waddle. 

 

The sunshine has finally showed up and we might make it up to 60 degrees for outside baseball practice this afternoon!

Up until today I have had to go upstairs to peek at what is going on next door -- yes! neighbors' house finally being rebuilt two years and two months after the fact, having settled the wrangling between the Govt. EQC and their private insurer as to who was going to pay for what.  Today, after the rain (and before the next rain) they have been flat out putting on the new steel grey color-steel roof; three cabana boy candidates with decent size thumbs, shirts carelessly tossed aside in the 64 degree sunshine, muscles rippling, putting on quite a show :D  Just put the ridge cap on. :)  I'll be sorry when they go home :rolleyes:

Yes, and another new meaning  too, Loey.  Our upstairs ensuite has full view of the roof, including my shower room which looks out over the harbor -- no door or curtain, no obscure glass.  They got here too early in the morning for me and kept me from washing my hair all day ;)  because I didn't want to BE the view :ph34r:

OK, I'll try to keep this PG. When Superman and I lived in NJ we had a townhouse and the master bathroom had a bay window (near the shower). One day I was showering (this was before we bought vertical shades that rose from the bottom) and all of a sudden I looked over to find two men on ladders working on the house. I quickly grabbed my towel and ran for cover. Of course at that time I was young and attractive (or so I've been told). DH got the shades that weekend! Hopefully they "took time to  enjoy the view".   :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

 

Love & (((Hugz))),

Loey

 

P.S. Today we're going to take DS out to lunch and then to the newly opened compassion clinic  :D  :D

Please give Jack a hug from me (and all us psillies) and have him give one to you and the rest of your family. A dear friend of ours just got out of rehab in Fla. (he's from NJ). His wife and son brought their dog Oreo along when they went to try to get him released last week and they were staying with their niece. Well Oreo ran away. The niece is still looking for Oreo but our friends are back in NJ.  :( I keep praying that Oreo is found.

Em, sorry to hear of your loss.

My old mog was 18 when she went, but that didn't make it any easier. She had liver failure too, they do tend to need to go quickly then.

Hugs x


- Symptoms from 2001, maybe before. Across 20+ years, these have included, vomiting, D, migraines, headaches, recurrent miscarriage, inflammation problems (failure to heal from injuries) brain fog, anxiety and more!

- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol

- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.

- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.

- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)

- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

My tough week with turks continues.  Yesterday goy up and one of the inside poults kind of staggered out of the box and collapsed, gasping for air.  She died about an hour later.  The other two also looked feverish and were sneezing so I walked down to the chicken store (my truck is broken again) and got some antibiotic.  Made them water and food with tetracyclin and kept them inside so they'd be a little quieter.  They ate a ton but staggered around to get to and from the food.  When they'd try to scratch their heads (I assume because their noses were stuffed) they'd kind of fall over.  So sad to watch.

 

Didn't want to get up this morning and look, but when I cam into the room they were both up and standing in the pen saying "Where's our scrambled egg???"  Still feverish (they lay directly under the heat lamp and then spread their wings because it's too hot) and one has crusty goo all over his beak, but at least they're still up and moving.

 

If antibiotics are going to help, they should start feeling better this afternoon or tomorrow morning.  I'm thinking they have a mycobacterial infection - which is common in poultry but not usually bad - overlayed with another bacterial infection from being so stressed in that cage for three weeks.  The tetracycline is only minimally effective against the myco but should take care of anything else they have.  As will just being less stressed.

 

Gloria is fine so far.  I don't think I'll do turkeys again.  This is way too stressful.
