Fun in Flockton

So, we ended up taking Eddie back to the vets on Saturday afternoon as he simply was not getting any better following Thursday’s visit. Turns out he has lost 1 kilo over those three days !!

The vet opted to keep him over night and get him setup on a drip to administer antibiotics directly as well as feeling him liquids etc

To top things off, Hugo began to show evidence of the symptoms also overnight so when we got the call to go collect Eddie, we have had Hugo checked over, and so following an injection and a thermometer up the bum (he loved them both equally), we now have two sets of tablets for them both.

Thankfully it is now Monday and they are both much better although there is still a long way to go and a likely large bill waiting for us – going in tomorrow to check that our – Eddie is not presently insured so it is all costs to us.

Fun in cuckoo land

This last week has not been great fun for Granny Cuckoo.

She received a call from the GP inviting her down to A&E as a blood test result was not showing great results.

36 hours later she was in Huddersfield Infirmary having drains fitted to her pretty badly swollen (2x and 3x) kidneys. They had effectively stopped working so her blood was relatively quickly poisoning her 🙁

This was all a week ago and now she is looking WAY better but still has some distance to cover – I.e more food needs eating and liquids drinking as the shrunk kidneys need kickstarting back into life.

Hopefully she is able to go home later today, although it will be short lived as a return is on the cards for around a month to have the drains removed and the stents (that perhaps caused the whole thing) replaced.

Mummy’s weekend away and Daddy’s heading to Stockholm

Vicky has enjoyed a weekend away in Whitby with the girls although as with anything like it, it was over far too quickly 🙁

The boys have stayed home all weekend with Olly at Joe’s for his birthday party and Elly helped Simon put the final pieces from the garden party away and cut the grass.

Simon definitely overdid it yesterday so his toes were throbbing a bit last night and then again this morning – fingers crossed that further damage has not been inflicted.

Simon is now heading out to Stockholm as a kind of test for next weekend – next weekend is supposed to be a trip down under to Sydney and Auckland – need to know how easy it is to travel with BF’d toes 🙁

Friday morning is the follow up X-ray on the toes so we will know more then about how well (or not) they are healing.

The weather has been pretty good this weekend considering it began to worsen during the week. Fingers crossed for the travel and better weather….
