Tom: Hi everyone, Tommy here! It's been a week since I had my little foot operation and I am doing MUCH better. This morning, #1 and I went for our first "proper" walk since I got sick and look:
#1 soon put a stop to my running as she said we still had to be careful, but it felt so good to be back in action!!! I still have to have my bandage on until at least August 7th.
Violette: Pretty Neighs, everyone, or maybe I should say "Smelly Neighs", sniff.... As you know, I am taking a whole battery of drugs for my bronchitis, and one of them is something called DMSO and it STINKS, and it makes me smell bad. #1 tells me it's the sulphur in it. Yuk! Thankfully, she still comes to give me lots of cuddles and doesn't seem to mind too much. The whole treatment is pretty heavy and is making me really tired, so I'm not up to much, other than taking my meds and working hard to get better.
I do have to tell you about something a little bit fun, though. Because the DMSO stuff smells so disgusting, Mr. E and Ms. S mix it in with something else before they syringe it into my mouth. Ever seen one of these bottles?
Yep, it is the French national drink, Pastis (aniseed flavored). So, I get to take an apéritif along with my meds! It does make it a little more palatable.
You will understand that I am not looking my best at the moment, so this is the best I can do for you in terms of photos:
My treatment lasts one more week, so may I ask you to cross some more paws and hooves for me, so that it works really well, and I can get back to being a happy and healthy girl?
