Sick, Sick, Sick

It's been pretty crappy this last week. First Mom's car got sick, then I got sick, then BLOGGER got sick. Mom's been trying to make this post for 2 days, but it wouldn't let her upload any pictures.

She was going to post anyway, but I wanted everypup to see how icky I feel.

Pretty super icky...

(She'll tell you all about it at the bottom of this post). you guys remember the secret present my BFF Tadpole sent to me last year? I really wanted to wear it this winter, but it still didn't fit.

One of Mom's work friends got a new puppy last month and I said she could have my special Tadpole sweater. It fit her perfectly!!

Her name is Aggie & she's a Figgle-dog so I knew Tad wouldn't mind if I shared my present.

I'm trying to get her Mom to start her very own blog, but haven't quite convinced her yet.

(OK...the deal with Lola. She started getting sick on Monday night. She really hadn't been herself since Saturday though. She was really mopey & not all that interested in food...which is really strange for her. Monday night she started throwing up off and on all night. Tuesday she still wouldn't eat and was very lethargic and obviously uncomfortable. The diarrhea started then too. I took her to the Vet today and her vitals are normal, but she was very dehydrated. They did Sub-Q fluids under her skin & almost all of it was absorbed. They also took blood to test kidney & liver function & check for signs of Pancreatitis, but won't have the results until tomorrow. She has to fast for 24 hours and then I start antibiotics. I'm hoping this is just a bacterial issue and nothing else. Good thoughts for the Diva would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry we haven't been around much to visit. It was a busy weekend followed by an equally busy week. We'll be making our rounds soon though. Promise!!

Oh, poor Lola, you look like you feel lousy. I hope this is nothing serious.

The red sweater looks great on your friend; it almost looked like a stocking hat on you!

Momo & Pinot said...

OH, NO, everyone is sick.... and Lola!! Poor Lola!! We hope you get well soon. Please take a good rest.

That red sweater is very cute!

Poor Lola! I hope you feel better soon and it's nothing serious! How in the worl is fasting for that long supposed to make you feel better? they should be giving you treats! Although if you're feeling yucky, you probably don't care about food anyway.
The sweater looks great on your friend. It was relly nice of you to give it to someone that could use it since it was still too small for you. You're a great friend Lola!
Get better soon!!

Ruby Bleu said...

Oh my Diva poor thing. You need to get better soon! I demand it! And Aggie...what a sweetie...another Boston! How great is that???!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Hi Jen,
Poor Lola. What's going on with doggies & kittys!?!? A number of dogs & Tia, the cat, in other states have been coming down with pancreatitis. I never knew an animal could get it. My hubby Joel had it 25 yrs. ago & he was in the hospital for 5 weeks & it was pretty scary situation. Keep us updated on her progress.


P.S. I got an unofficial offer for a position that I interviewed back in early part of January at Pitt & they have already checked with 2 of my references. Keep all your fingers, toes, & paws crossed for me. I sure hope this ordeal is over soon. Maybe I'll hear by the end of tomorrow an official offer.

The Brat Pack said...

Oh no, we can't believe you're sick! We've been wondering where you were and now we're sad you are puny. Hopefully your test results come back ok and a little TLC will get you better.


PS Mom said to tell your Mom to email her if she needs anything.

Sophie Brador said...

Lola, I sure hope you are feeling a bit better. I know you probably think it was nasty of them to steal your blood and pee. You know, they aren't going to give that back. I thought maybe they were just borrowing it, but I never saw it again. Sorry you have to take a stand against Bs for a couple of weeks, but the protest should make you feel much better.


Tadpole said...

My BFF Lola Sprout Beyonce! You CAN'T be sick! It's just not right for a diva like yourself.... And I sure hope it isn't pancreatitis - as much as I love you, I don't want to have THAT in common! :-(

And that little Aggie sure looks cute in my secret present! I had to pretend to poo in the house so that Massah would run into the other room so I could look at this in private; she still doesn't know! Hee!

fig said...

*sigh* I've been trying to lose the extra pounds before swimsuit season, but I don't think I could EVER get that small....

Maggie & Mitch said...

We sure hope you feel better soon, Lola! How nice of you to share your sweater with Aggie! It looks super nice on her!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

wally said...

Oh poor Lola Ebola! (Just teasing). I hope you're feeling better soon and that it is just a belly ache and not an angry pancreas. I know you want to have empathy for your BFF Taddy but I don't think you need to go THAT far.


ps. Sherman, if you'd like to have empathy with me by eating loads of heartables I would fully support that.
pps. I know this is like totally obvious and probably dumb to ask but did they check for a blockage? My ma ape is TOTALLY paranoid about those because she lost a dog to one once. Or rather, to really lame vet who botched the surgery. But anyway.

Sickness abounds. Aggie is cute. We hope you feel better Lola

Kapp pack said...

Oh No! My Poor Lola! I will be right over to snuggle with you and nurse you back to health!

BTW: I hope it wasn't my Valentine's Day treat :-(

Mango said...

Lola, I hate to see you all mopey. Squirties and hup chuckin'. Did that IV give you a hump on your back?

Glad you found a naked doggie to give your sweater to. Red is a good color on you, so maybe your momma can find something in your most pleniful size.

Slobber kisses,

Cassidy said...

Aw, poor Lola. There be lots of tummy bugs here for doggies, so maybe it's that time of year. me hopes you feels better fast.
