Poor Lucy. Well, the day after the flea bath at Petco, we thought things would get better. But that evening, Lucy was even worse. Almost screaming out at night with no relief from us. Getting just about no sleep all night. As I laid there trying to comfort Lucy, what to do was running through my head. I had to make sure Lucy was ok before I could take her to the cabin. I had already told my husband and everyone at work, Lucy was staying in the cabin with me. Didn’t want to expose her to any of the little buggers out there. I sent Candy a text message before 5am. Are you up? TM came back, yes. I told her my predicament and said I was going to beg the Vet to see her. I wanted to call in sick to work to take care of my little Lucy. At 6am I brought Lucy to see her mommy Candy. What misery she said Lucy was in. She had some Lidocaine spray and was able to rub some of it on her tummy, pelvic region where it was so “warm” and “red”. We stayed till 7am discussing our plan of action. Since Mark didn’t have to leave for work later, I thought best for Lucy to stay with Daddy as long as she could before being dropped off for a long day at the Vet. If no appt, your pet gets seen in between visits. Thank God they still get seen. Pick up would be around 2pm. Long day ahead for Lucy.
Candy picked up Lucy for us, brought her home, fed her lunch and gave her some much needed TLC.
The Vet then called me. She said it was POLLEN! Not so much the fleas really. She said maybe some component but mainly pollen. She got a shot, antibiotics and some antihistamines. Ok, another $120 but I was just so happy she got some relief. And I must admit I am relieved it wasn’t so much fleas.
Last night was the first night Lucy did not need reiki in the middle of the night. How do I know that? She slept at the foot of the bed again. Not next to me. We’re all set for the cabin!
