Spaghetti baby

On tuesday night Josh and I noticed that our oldest child Spaghetti was lethargic and had lost all appetite.
We made an appointment with a vet for him for thursday at 5pm. decided he was too sick to wait that long so we went in at 10am.
He had lost 20 lbs since he got sick
He wasn't keeping anything down.

He was mauled by a badger a week ago! odd, eh? thats what we get for living in the middle of nowhere. Thank heaven it is not rabies. thank you thank you thank you heaven.

The vet told us he had canine parvovirus. Something that he should have been vaccinated for. Big mistake, on our part.
She also said he only had a 50% chance of pulling through this.


(this is a picture of Spaghetti hooked up to his IV drip. Good practice for a nurse in training, eh? I want to be a Veterinarian now)

but 1 nausea shot, 1 antibiotic and 2 IV's of ringer's lactate and he's doing much better.

I think he'll pull through.

relief relief relief



post script... get your puppies vaccinated and save yourself hundreds of dollars and lots of grief in the future. I wish we had been smarter about it.

Day 9...

Ok ok, so I'm a little behind. Ignore my previous schedule cause from now on I'm just writing when i feel like it. Mmmmmkay? mmkay.

Something I'm proud of in the last few days... well, not to brag or anything, but I got 92.4% on my first nursing exam! woohoo! I don't know how I did it. I think all the anxiety I feel taking tests makes me perform better. Go me! Nursing school is off to a good start!

Day 8...

Short term goals for this month and why:

1) STUDY! Hit the books! Because I have academic standards to live up to now! no more barely passing! I will be the most knowledgeable!

2) Stop eating fast food. Because it's turning my flat tummy into a pooch.

3) Exercize more. Because I need endorphins. And hotness.

4) Show my husband I love him every day. Because he deserves it.

5) Be more goal oriented. Because that's all I can think of for now.
