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.
