Hi ribena,
Molly is spending the day in the dogs hospital at the vets!
As the weekend is approaching And thereís no staff on duty to monitor her
Sheíll be monitored at home by us ( MrM )

Heís been shown how to administer her insulin injections!

Iím concerned for him too
Heís not getting any younger ,and feel heís taking too much on,especially with my recent diagnosis ,heís run ragged looking after me as well!


Hoping to get to Corfu very soon,but,I canít stay at our house as Iíd never get down to it because of the terrain !

A Greek friend has offered us accommodation that she owns ,as itís not opening this season because of covid ,,
Itís on the flat !
No steps or stairs to manoeuvre

I have a vision of being plonked in the shade ,everything to hand ,while Mr M does what he has todo  lol

 
If the meds Iím on donít improve my mobility ,I fear the house will have to be sold along with itís contents and car and the scooter?

Thanks for asking about mollyxx

I know life is more important than money !
But I think sheís been given the best chance we can afford to give her.as the vets bill is mounting up .
The bill is approaching £1000, and that not including her emergency op to remove her eye !
Where to draw the line and say ,we canít afford to treat her anymore ,as itís a condition that I fear is treated by trial and error ,,or suck it and see ?

Mr M feels responsible in a way ,for her attack,as she wasnít on a leash !
I myself think ,,tell the vet to make her comfortable and help her on her way!
My head rules my heart,,
But Mr M heart rules his head !

Heís gone to bring her home now
What will be will be xxxx

It's so hard knowing what to do when our pets are poorly, isn't it!  My staffy is 13 and has been diagnosed with a non-specific liver problem and has not been given a very good prognosis.  However, we're giving him various pills and potions and some (very expensive) special food and he seems perfectly happy at the moment.  We actually took him to the vet for something completely different but they found this while investigating the other issue.  While he's content and not in any pain (the vet was very keen to assure us of this!) then we're going to leave him be.  Obviously at some point we're going to have to make the toughest decision but hopefully he'll plod on for a while longer!

Mr M is a trooper isn't he!  It sounds like you could both really do with a bit of a break, so I hope you take your friend up on their offer of accommodation.  :) xx

My daughters dog 2005-2020 pictures here. She was a rescue dog so we don't really know exactly how old she was when she had to leave us. It was a very sad event, too much to put here. But my daughter is a vet, so it was down to her to decide when it was time and take her for her last walk. So for more than 15 years she was there whenever you went, she came here often on holiday with us - they are a miss.

Aw, what a lovely little dog! 

They really are a part of the family, which is why it's so hard when the time comes to say goodbye.
