Steroids

I finished my steroids today. My appointment for the other vet who specializes in back problems is for 2 days later so Fomfomfom asked the vet we saw last week if we can have 2 more pills.

Later in the evening, they realized my abdomen is a little bloated and they were so alarmed. It is one of the side effects of steroids apparently. So they thought maybe they won't give me the extra pills. Then Fomfomfom read online that one has to be weaned off the steroids otherwise it could be fatal. Everyone is very scared so Fomfomfom will call my regular vet woman first thing in the morning and badger her for answers.

So frightening these things.

Ah bee said I have goofy ears. She and fomfomfom also have ears. But birds and snakes don't have ears. They tell me it's coz we are mammals that's why we have ears. I feel so close to them coz we all have ears. Ah bee points to me and then herself, same same, she says.

Oh I forgot to watch the Oscars today.

They are still restricting my activity. I finish my walks so early it's messing with my routine. Usually I eat my dinner before my evening walk and then when we come back two and a half hours later, I am hungry enough to eat my kibble. Now I am home within an hour I'm not even hungry. But routine dictates I must eat. Also I'm so bored. They blocked the stairs so I can't go to the balcony to sun myself. I'm not liking this one bit.

But at least they are not crating me. That would be really sad.

I also think it's funny how they keep barking at me to sit down and stop moving. As if I've ever listened.

Then I heard something about a straitjacket. I hope they were joking.

 

CNY day 3

This morning ah bee and fomfomfom brought me for my morning walk. I wondered what it was that's so special about today; turns out it's a 15 minute walk. Coz fomfomfom said she wanted to poop. Why can't she do it in the field like me. Duh.

This cutting short my walks is making me very unhappy. But they say it's coz I have a bad back; I should be counting my lucky stars I'm getting out at all. My evening walk doesn't even hit one hour. And they're carrying me this special way that Mop's mummy taught them. Feels funny, but whatever.

And I'm loving this Chinese new year thing. Two servings of liver today, and two bowls of liver soup. So nourishing. And shabu too.

It's almost bedtime and I wanna play with fomfomfom and ah bee but the moment I sat up straight, they fled. They say I'm not to move. So that's why they blocked the steps and I can't go down to the balcony.

I shall sleep.

My back is still not good. I'm miserable early in the day but by mid afternoon the steroids would have worked its magic and I can fly. They kept screaming at me to stop moving. It's very annoying.

We met a neighbour today who came and wanted to say hello to me. He's a huge guy and he stroked my back too hard. It was so painful and I yelped twice. My mamas are very sad. It's not like he knew my back is bad and my mamas didn't know he would use so much strength. It was most unfortunate.

Then we saw Mop and his mummy and Fomfomfom, remembering Mop has a back problem too, immediately asked his mummy about it. She taught them how to carry me properly so they don't strain my back any further. And then she told them it took Mop weeks to get better. And she said I need cage rest.

Ah bee said she's going to buy a hamster cage for me and confine me for 2 weeks.

Helps helps.

It is the Chinese new year today and they gave me 4 ang pows last night. I put them in my shoebox immediately. There were no visitors coz all visitors were banned coz of my bad back. So ah bee's boyfriend and Wernie didn't come to play with me. Fomfomfom watched stupid movies on tv and I snoozed. The rest of them were all out. They ate a lot but my food was back to the usual boring stuff. It's not fair. And they said I walked too much this evening that's why my back is no good again at bedtime.

Sigh.

 

New year's eve

I'm feeling much better today after 2 doses of steroids. Perfect timing because today's chinese new year eve. I'm all shabued out. And I got liver too. It was delicious and I went into a food coma for hours.

This year is the year of the goat. I was born in the year of the goat so it means I'm 12 this year. 11 years ago on chinese new year eve, Cha and Fomfomfom went to pick me up from my Ah yi mama's house. I was a month old. They brought me home unceremoniously in a pail. Also they didn't give me milk for a week because they didn't know they were supposed to. And they have been making it up to me ever since.

And forever more.

We went to the vet today and they took 4 x-rays of me and fomfomfom threw a hissy fit coz we only signed up for two. The vet couldn't see a problem with my spine but I was obviously unwell so the vet gave me steroids. Everything was so long-winded and slow fomfomfom whispered she wanted to burn down the clinic. Ah bee agreed. But we didn't do it coz it's not nice.

So now I'm off the tramadol and on the prednisolone and mebbe I'm feeling better. But all those medicines make me feel funny and they keep saying I'm stoned. Ah ma's heart was so painful for me and she ordered fomfomfom to give me a full portion of liver when we returned from the clinic. And they put a library book under my water bowl so I won't have to stoop to drink.

And the vet said complete bed rest. Which means my evening walk is cut down to one hour only. This is making me so unhappy. I must rest now. Goodnight.

 

Inflammation

Today my back swelled and they only saw it at 4 in the evening. Ah ma saw it first and was alarmed and she said they should bring me to the hospital immediately. But fomfomfom was not very bothered and only made an appointment with a vet for 10 days later. Ah ma shook her head at them and they made another appointment to see a vet tomorrow morning. But it's not soon enough for ah ma. Ah ma loves me and I love ah ma.

They gave me tramadol, the painkiller the vet gave a few days ago. They looked it up online and saw that I might be feeling sad and empty. Yes, I'm rather sad. I hope I don't get constipated too. It makes my stummy feel funny, this tramadol.

 

My friend

My friend Lila has gone missing for a few days now. We found out that her owners tie her outside their house and they think someone took her. I don't know why they don't let her in the house but we are more fearful of what might have happened to her. We hope it's not the unthinkable. She's gone missing before 4 years ago and then she turned up a couple of days later. Maybe she will show up this time too. Poor Lila.

I'm still not feeling well. I didn't even stand up to greet Ah ma and cha when they came home but I was wagging my tail furiously so they still know I like them. Everyone's so sad I'm not okay.

Me too.
