At 7:40 on the dot this morning Cindy I were back at the vet for heartworm injection #2. They were ready and waiting for her – they told me they already had her ICU room all set for her. “ICU” wasn’t exactly what I wanted to hear, but I knew it was so she had a place to rest and relax after her injections; after last time they knew she’d need super isolation.
Around 5:30 this evening I headed back to the vet and couldn’t get her out of there fast enough! We drove home, she slowly made her way inside, ate her dinner and then wandered around restlessly. Just like last time she couldn’t seem to get comfortable and was on the couch, off the couch, on her bed, on the floor. Finally she decided the floor made a good resting spot.
Lucy was SO excited to welcome Cindy home! As usual, I had to keep my eye on her to make sure she didn’t get Cindy too excited but she seemed to know Cindy wasn’t feeling her best.
We head back to the vet tomorrow for a re-check. There was apparently some confusion in the doctor’s notes about when the third (and theoretical final) injection would happen. It was supposed to be day 91 (tomorrow) but apparently there might be some hope she won’t need a third injection. I’ll find out more tomorrow when we meet with the doctor. Cindy will need to continue to be restricted in her exercise and exertion for several months no matter when her last injection is, but either way I think the end is in sight and she’ll be feeling 100% sooner rather than later!
P.S. – Cindy was down to 49.9 pounds!! She has lost seven-plus pounds since we got her – way to go Cindy!
