And then there was Saturday evening. After the party, SG, Herself and I went to look at a hay field 2 towns over. Himself wanted to stay home...good thing, too. He called as we had just turned around to come home - Chloe and Tigger had gotten into a disagreement, and both were bleeding. I got him calmed down, and SG sped up. Himself called back....Tigger was "bleeding all over the bed, Mom. Looks bad. What do I do?????" :bangs head: I told him to dump a handful of flour on her (flour will stop bleeding - good to know, right?), and to check out Chloe - who seemed fine.
Got home......yes, Tigger was bleeding, but NOT all over the bed. Just 2 smallish spots. BUT - it was bad. She had a deep puncture wound on her back leg, with 2 smaller ones near it, one on her forehead, and one on her neck. Chloe had a couple of small spots on her front leg and some scratches on her belly. :sigh: We flushed Tigger's deep wound with peroxide, squirted some on Chloe, then packed Tigger up and took her to the doggie ER (SG was resistant...after Risky? Not me - I'l figure out some way to help pay off the Care Credit card.)
LONG story short - Tigger had surgery Sat. evening/Sunday morning. Vet called at 1 AM to tell us she made it thru the surgery OK, had a drain tube and about 14 stitches. We picked her up at 8, and have been trying to keep her quiet (HA!) and isolated (HA HA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!)
Anyway. I am TIRED - no sleep last night, because SG thought Tigger was depressed (probably right - she HATES the cone of shame, but keeps shimmying out of the soft one I made for her (needs work. :sigh:)) so he plopped her in bed. Then fell asleep himself and kept kicking her in his sleep. :huge sigh: Now, of course, she thinks she's allowed in the bed (which...normally she is, but we have orders to NOT let her jump. Riiiiiight. Her name is Tigger for a REASON.)...and she can jump up there faster than I can realize she WANTS up. :big sigh:
Our vet called yesterday to check on her - which I thought was nice. I have to bring her in tomorrow to get the drain checked and possibly removed; she'll have stitches for 2 weeks. I am going to be a zombie for those 2 weeks, methinks........
So. Very little knitting has been done. I have turned the heel and finished the gussets on sock #2, but that's about as far as I've gotten. I want to get it DONE, because I want to knit something else.
But right now, all I want is a few solid hours of SLEEP. It looks like rain - again - so maybe I'll get that. :fingers crossed:
