Goodness has it been a crazy few days in my life!! I've had a cold and pretty bad fever all last week, and finally went back to school Friday (mountains of make up work, let me tell you!) Of course I've had new babies to take care of and 2 very tempermental new mom's on top of the usual. I work at our local vet clinic/animal shelter on weekends and I'm usually the first person they call when they need a hand. Sure enough, just after school Friday I got a call from Dr.K begging for my assistance (ok, so she just asked, LOL, who's boss usually begs for help??). I get there and every kennel is full, and most with pretty critical puppies and kitties. Our secretary was gone, and they are usually an assistant short on fridays anyways. So they had no one wroking the back... *sighs* fevers, smelly clinics, lots of sick animals= super bad headache. I got everything under control and starting to look (and smell) a little better when one of the assistants grabs her purse crying and yelliing to Dr.K that her mom just called and her mare had just foaled, stepped on the foal's chord, and ultimately torn into it's abdominal cavity. We all rushed to get closed up for the night, and the 3 of us (doctor,me, and Niki now) headed out to the other side of the county to see about the horse and her foal. Now Dr.K is 27 years old, just had a baby 2 weeks ago, and is one of the tiniest people I've ever met. So 3 little girls trying to restrain, this rather large and rightfully upset mare while someone is messing with her backside is no easy task. Turns, out the foal had died in utero and was starting to decay (that's why it was torn so easily) and there was a twin still yet to be delivered- that was a mess- I ended up not getting home till after 12. The mare is doing good now, btw, so that's good. Saturday and Sunday, we still had most the animals from friday but most werent so critical thank heavens, and I did manage to work in some baby time. I still hadnt, worked much on all the make up work by Sunday and worked on that till bed time. Yesterday, calmed down a little, I got home and started to feel bad again with a sore throat and started running a fever... gah, I cant get better! MY doctor says "TAKE IT EASY!", LOL, I wonder why? :roll: This is my second round of antibiotics... hopefully I'll get to feeling sooner this time. I dont have much of a choice, I've got lot's of stuff coming up in the beginning of February. Including the Florida State Fair (I think that's what it is) Anyone going to be there?
