Worried About Fred

My gentle giant, Fred, is hurt.

I had planned a “real” post, but instead I just stopped by to let you know I’m spending every minute taking care of Fred right now.

I took Fred to the vet yesterday, but they can’t figure out what’s wrong with him.

I don’t know how Fred got hurt, but he began “crying” late Monday night.

Because he’s crying, we know Fred is in pain.

We don’t know what is causing his pain.

The vet checked over every inch of Fred and he never exhibited pain while a particular body part was being checked.

But, I think Fred was faking being well for the vet.

Fred is very smart that way.

Fred is back at home with me at the moment.

He’s on anti-inflammatories and pain meds.

He seems to be crying less so I hope the anti-inflammatories are working.

If he doesn’t improve today, he’ll be back in to see a vet again this afternoon – at the latest.

I’m worried sick about him, of course.

Hearing an animal cry, and not being able to help them, is one of the most helpless feelings imaginable.

Obviously, I still haven’t made a dent in my emails – and, again, I apologize.

I’ll try to get them as soon as I can.

    I’m so sorry. Hopefully Fred will be feeling better soon, and/or you find out what is wrong so that he can be better.

    Oh no, poor Fred. Did they do an X-ray? I hope you get it figured out quickly. Hugs to your boy.

      They didn’t do an x-ray because they can’t figure out what particular body part is causing the pain.

    Crossing my fingers and toes for Fred. Yes, it’s a helpless feeling when you can’t understand dogspeak.

      Kudos to vets for being able to figure out what is wrong with creatures who are suffering and unable to communicate in words.

    Hey Suzanne, I saw this last night Aussie time but my internet started playing up straight after and I couldn’t get online to comment 🙁 I wanted to let you know I’m sending you all my best thoughts and will even have a quiet word to St Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals, as he has been a steadfast comfort to me over the years! I know how much our pets mean to us so I’m wishing you all the very best and share your kudos for the wonderful veterinary fraternity. Lots of love xx
