    Home again, home again, jigiddy jig!

    Just got home less than an hour ago, back from the vets.

    They sent us home with 2 meds; cephalexin, and penicillamine. I'm too lazy to go up and look them up. Both are to be administered every 12 hours. The penicillamine is 0.08cc, and the cephalexin is 0.04cc. I'm to start the cephalexin tomorrow, and the other the following day.

    Been a long day here, I was up at 5, and on the road at 8. Got to the vet's at 10. The tech was going to bring her in and show me how to administer the meds, but they noticed some blood in her cage. Silly little bugger had broken a blood feather, and they had to extract it. And they wanted to observe her afterwards. So two hours later we're off and running. So we finally got home at 4.

    So time for some pictures.

    Anyone home? (Hint look for her cheek patch)


    Haha! I've escaped!!


    I see you've been redecorating.


    It's nice to be home...Even if it's on a slant...Or the photographer's laying on the couch...


    Listen Fat Boy, you gotta work on these extreme close ups.


    They ended up not putting a collar on her as she didn't respond well to them, and they thought she didn't really need the extra stress with the shots and all.

    Shadow also says they didn't feed her there either. Once she was in her cage she made repeated (4 in a couple of hours) trips to her feed bowl for some serious chowing down.

    AWWW! She's got such a pretty henny face! She looks good considering everything she's been through! Hopefully she won't be needing the collar then and this round of antibiotics will do her good. Please keep us posted. Glad she's eating!

    At least she is eating, good sign.

    I am glad she is back home and doing good. She'll be back on her feet in no time (I hope)
