She is doing remarkably well. In lieu of changing her diet (she has a sensitive tummy) I am soaking and smashing up her normal dry kibble. She's having tiny snack meals throughout the day today. She is on 3 medications - pain, anti-inflammatory, and an antibiotic. They are all liquid and I'm putting it in her food, so along with many mini-meals, she's getting her medications. She is actually liking this frequent eating thing - and the extra lap time she is getting. If she's not on one of our laps, she is in her kennel - as it's her safe place. She is sore and uncomfortable, but doing much better than I would be, given the same dental procedure!
So....I'm glad she made it through ok. I have copies of her x-rays, and the position of that molar in relationship to her jaw bone....the dark shadows of abscesses --- it all makes me shudder! I am grateful that her doctor was able to take good care of her. He gave me his home phone number in case I needed him during the night, and he also called late last night to see how she was doing. I just feel so bad that all this has been going on, and we were not aware. I think the brushing of her teeth and treating her water, etc, perhaps made the visible teeth look good, and gave no clue as to what was happening below the surface of the gum line. Anyway.... thanks for those of you who have sent best wishes and prayers her way. Just thought I'd give everyone an update. Only the dog-lovers out there will understand, but I do think there are a fair share of you that are....(and cat-lovers) also of course.
So, back to the knitting part of this show:
I've signed up for a Mitten Mystery KAL with the "I Make Mittens" Ravelry group. It starts in July. With a certain amount of hesitation, I decided to take this braid of fiber:
and separate out the colors.
I'm trying to create small skeins of yarns for the colorwork in the mittens. It may well be an epic fail, and I admit that I'm not quite sure of what I'm doing, but I'm trying it. I do kind of like this little skein.
I've also joined in on a Mystery Shawl KAL - one by Wendy Johnson. The first clue is completed. I believe the next clue comes out tomorrow.
Our local sheep/wool festival is tomorrow. I plan on going with a friend. Should be fun. Sofee will be in good hands with "daddy", and I'll try not to worry......not TOO much anyway.
Enjoy your weekend...... k
