Day Forty-Three

April 4th, 2016 at 05:35 am

Calories: 1203

Iggy is sick. He is sneezing, shaking his head, and his third eyelid is showing. He probably has a upper respiratory infection. His medical history, which was given to me when I adopted him, shows that he had a URI previously.

I'm going to try to get into the vet this morning when the office opens, even though I have an appointment tomorrow to follow up on his ear mites. The trouble is, I have a housecall appointment this afternoon -- UnitedHealthcare offers this annually; you get a $15 gift card to Walmart for allowing a nurse to come and talk to you about your health issues. I can cancel, but I hate to do it at the last minute. And I won't know until 9AM if I can even get Iggy in.

In other news, my kids got home from their Spring Break yesterday and I spent the afternoon in the park and then playing board games with the grandsons. So much fun.

No spending yesterday. My variables spending so far this month is at 5%.

    I got Iggy in this morning and the vet seemed totally unalarmed. She said the medication he got for earmites can sometimes lower resistance, and he probably just has a cold. I left the Pet Taxi sitting out, door open, after I brought him home. Guess where he's sleeping now! I guess he didn't hate the experience too much.

    Hope Iggy recovers soon. Does it mean you cancelled tomorrow's visit for ear mites?

  5. CB in the City Says:

    No, I kept tomorrow's appointment, but I'll be taking my other cat instead. Otherwise they can pass ear mites back and forth.

    Sorry Iggy's feeling icky.

    That sounds like a wonderful way to spend an afternoon (with the grandkids.)
