i watched mya have a poop today so i know she isn't obstructed.
not so sure about the baby pigs tho...keekee was having trouble trying to poop today so that has us on high alert worry....plus baby pigs are sometimes born without rectums and it doesn't show up right away so we were doing rectal checks on my dinner break. can't actually say if she has one or not, the openings are so freaking tiny...i barely saw the opening on deedee. i will poke around a bit more first thing tomorrow to see for sure and the vets have an appointment for us if we need. i just finished checking on them and both babes seem calm, content and relaxed so they should be ok for tonight at least.
unfortunately pepper woke up when i came in the house at 10pm...so he is screaming and carrying on to hang out with me and i am somewhat thinking about murdering him again.
vet appointment for abbey tomorrow..i think she had another seizure today. we will get some bloodwork done to rule out metabolic diseases before we start looking at starting her on phenobarb.
today the cement pad was poured for the new little barn/shed..i am happy with the final placement and size.
we did a new blood test for pat the cat..this will tell us a little bit more to try to help figure things out. it should be back in a day or so and he will stay in the clinic until we know more and can formulate a decent plan of care.
it was another of those freaking crazy days where i am running behind from dawn to very dark time. work was busy which is why they called me in on overtime...saints was nutso busy (we were down 2 regular staff people today,) my cell phone was insanely crazy busy...13 messages by very early this afternoon and then another 10 calls came in for me to ignore while i was trying to work (i have only answered the vet ones so far.) and i am so freaking glad that today is finally done...i feel like i packed three full days into one single day and that was not a whole lot of fun.
now since i just fed him a late night snack...if pepper will just shut the hell up and go back to sleep...i could REALLY be done and go to bed pretty soon too.
ok laura, just let me know when i see ya saturday
