Today was hectic and I didn't even do any Black Friday shopping, although I wouldn't have anyway. Yesterday my sweet greyhound Hubert spent the day throwing up which meant I spent much of my Thanksgiving cleaning up dog vomit. This morning I took him straight to the vet where he stayed all day having a barium study done and lots of x-rays. Apparently he had a really nasty GI inflammation but it looks like the worst is behind us.
After dropping Hubert off at the vet, well, I waited around for over an hour to be seen so it wasn't quite dropping him off, I ran a couple quick errands before going to work. Fortunately my only task today was showing a house and because it is a small house it didn't take long. Given that I was already in St. John's I decided to walk the bridge in the haze morning light. I think that the St. John's Bridge is my favorite in Portland, it just has so much style. It involved a little human Frogger waiting for breaks in the traffic to stand on the middle of the bridge to get the right picture but it pays to be patient.
Once I got the pictures I was hoping for I headed home to feed the other dogs. It didn't seem fair to feed them in front of Hubert if he wasn't going to get anything to eat. When they had eaten I prepared a little lunch for myself and spent the next few hours working on some odds and ends before heading back to the vet.
I had another long wait but I can't really complain because I didn't have any appointments. Eventually I talked to the vet to be given her final evaluation. She suggested a bland diet and a number of small meals for the next few days until Hubert is back to 100%. So I paid his rather hefty bill (no one gets anything for Christmas this year) and headed home to feed the other dogs again. Then I went to the grocery store for Hubert food which I prepped before taking the dogs for a walk.
Now it is ten o'clock and I think it is time for some well deserved rest. Oh but isn't the St. John's Bridge pretty...
