I am so surprised it is Square Dog Friday again.
We all know the drill so lets woof it.
Danger Danger Alert thehamish strikes again.
thrhamish has been to his regular vet about 2 weeks ago.
His liver test came out fine so I thought Yes, we got a pass that test.
Well not for long !
All of a sudden in the last few days he went down hill fast.
Son and I rushed him to the ER of the Veterinary Specialty Center Wednesday morning.
I thought he went into a diabetic attack. Couldn't move, drinking too much water,
throwing up and looking withdrawn.
It was the longest 35 minuet drive ever.
I walked in and said I think Hamish is going into diabetic shock.
Two aides were out to the car before I could blink and Son handed Hamish over
and they rushed him back to ER.
Two of his doctors practice here and all his files are here along with Watson.
This is a Specialty Hospital. So they know what is going on with his health.
We were told they trying to stabilized him, IV fluids and pulled some blood tests.
We went to breakfast and coffee and waited till they knew more.
Turns out his diabetic numbers were at 400 ! liver, bladder and pancreas numbers
were either to high or too low.
When one organ goes out of whack it is like dominoes and everything starts to fail.
Turns out he has Pancreases.
It is very bad especially because of his other problems.
They have him drugged with IV's so he can rest.
He is in ICU right now.
He will be at hospital for several days.
They have visiting hours and I went to see him.
He is so not thehamish.
They have a very nice visiting room with a small lovely garden.
He walked slowly to the door to leave. It was very sad.
I took him outside instead to the little garden and sniff the breezes.
I always thought Watson would be the one to leave me first
but this last year I have been thinking thehamish might leave first.
It is so very sad he is only 12, much to young to leave me.
Just because I can here is your pretty for the weekend.
When all this was happening with thehamish it was on Daughters Birthday.
Children and our pets always get sick at 2 am
usually on a Friday or Saturday morning.
We were back home by noon so we when ahead with a pool party and
a homemade sushi dinner. We ate outside as the evening was so lovely.
It was very nice and helped out with our concerns for a few moments.
There is not much we can do when he is at hospital but wait and wait.
Warm lovely day.
I usually open the pool on Daughters Birthday.
Days are warm but evening cool so the heater is on.
From my plate in front.
Salmon, fried calamari, sweet crab, spicy crab,
Middle sushi rice, seaweed, lettuce for wraps, thinly sliced veggies
and Japanese Potato Salad. Plus all sorts of sauces.
We made hand wraps which is easier than rolls.
Best dinner ever.
Daughters partner made a wonderful Ice Cream Cake.
Daughter started this tradition after moving to Tucson. Very delicious.
I forgot to take a photo but Daughter said she would send me one.
It was a nice evening.
