Sick Cupcake

I started feeling better on Wednesday, so back to work I went. I even cooked dinner last night! Don't laugh - I made shake-n-bake pork chops and twice baked potatoes (frozen from Costco). I know there should have been a vegetable, but who wants to eat those?

On Tuesday AC took Cupcake to the vet. She has been throwing up and not running to eat like she used to. Cupcake's appointment summed up: an x-ray, temperature of 104 (I guess 102 is high for cats), blood work, a rectal exam, 2 shots and $320. They are not sure what causes this could be irritable bowel syndrome or pancreatitis, so they are just going to treat her symptoms for now.
We have to start giving her a 1/4 tsp of Benefiber & 1/4 of a tablet of pepcid. At least the otc drugs work on flex spending! The vet also got to experience how difficult it is to give her any oral meds, so we have 2 different meds that are in cream form (one is an antibiotic and the other one is to calm her stomach). We have 2 rub 1 cc on the inside upper part of her ear, only once per day for 7 days. Hopefully all of this helps.

Today we had a pizza party at work. I picked up 15 pizzas from Alibi. I am scrapping with Ashley & Anita tomorrow. I have my layouts selected, paper picked out and my photos cut. I am taking supplies to make 6 layouts so hopefully I am productive! I am hoping to work a half day and go around noon to the Tree and start cropping, it goes until midnight. It is funny how fast those 12 hours go by. I can't even explain why or how they go so quickly. The last time we went at noon, I checked the clock at 4 pm, 10:30 and then time to go. I always have fun and like to spend the time with friends.

Speaking of time going by fast, why doesn't that happen at work??

Have a good night!

Glad you are feeling better! Prayers for little Cupcake. I hope the meds work. And, glad your vet is like mine and will use OTCs when possible. It's such a huge money saver especially with the flex plan. Enjoy your scrapping later today! Looking forward to seeing your layouts. :)

I'm sorry Cupcake has been sick! It's a scary thing when a furbaby is not feeling right. I hope she's better soon. Glad you're feeling better, too.

Have fun scrapping!
