This is our sitting room (newly decorated). It was tasteful and a vision of loveliness. Now we have a single mattress, BeAnne’s bed (with statutory Icelandic lopapeysa) and my commotion.
(When I was a nurse many eons ago, a patient shouted “Nurse, I want the commotion”, so the commode has always been known in this house as The Commotion!)
Perhaps not a thing of great beauty but “the commotion” is a necessity as BeAnne would try and follow me to the bathroom in the night and that would mean stairs. There is no polite way to disguise it.
So we had a vet appointment this morning and BeAnne was referred to Broadleys Veterinary Hospital for an immediate scan and possibly surgery.
I am currently waiting for the vet to phone back to confirm the time and date. I have booked a cabin on the boat tomorrow night (easily changed if necessary). A hotel is also booked for 3 nights (they take dogs) and and we will take it from there.
We all agree that this is the only way forward for BeAnne. Whatever it takes. She was there for me when I was ill, so now we are all there for her.
UPDATE ON THE UPDATE: Broadleys have just phoned to say Wednesday, 12:00. So glad I booked everything ahead. They were lovely.
We all feel a bit more relaxed about BeAnne’s condition.
Still, it is very stressful for us humans. Daisy, Flossie and I went out for a ride, taking Loki with us.
This was the best therapy for us. I wish we had taken BeAnne. She would’ve loved it. One day, I hope.
