Today is day three. That means I get to take a shower! Boy, am I excited! Isn't it odd how you realize you miss a shower when you can't have one? Anyway, that is my big thrill for the day. The day is early, however, so who knows?
We had some excitement late in the afternoon yesterday. TL discovered that Max had tipped over the bathroom trash, which surprised me. He isn't the one who would usually do that. Anyway, to our further distress, he apparently ate a tampon. Ick factor, 10+. But the biggest concern is could he expel it, especially if he drinks water? A call to the vet shortly before closing time brought a casual response from him. He said no big worry, just feed Max a tablespoon of Vaseline three or so times before bedtime, and then start again this morning. Really? He chuckled and said, yes, it is amazing what dogs .... and sometimes cats .... ingest and expel without as much problem as we would think. His own dachshund swallowed a whole sock a while back and after a whole tube of Vaseline, he pooped it right out! Alrighty, then! No results yet, but we'll be starting the treatment again this morning. I didn't know that Vaseline doesn't digest, but goes right through their bodies. Amazing.
We have about six inches of snow on the ground. It is still snowing this morning, and it is accompanied by some pretty strong winds. I don't know how much more we can expect, but supposedly the worst will be over before noon. Terri, my thin blooded Floridian, is enjoying watching it and simultaneously very glad that she doesn't have to be outside in it! See, it is really good that I'm not quite up to getting out yet, 'cause I'd probably drag her somewhere! No, actually, I'm very happy to stay tucked inside, also. I like snow better with a couple panes of glass between me and the actual stuff!!
That is about the extent of the "news" from here. Dang, I'm boring when I've had surgery, aren't I? :D Yeah, well .......
