Well it’s over for another year. Our Poppy was unwell. She had a scratch under her chin… we thought… but, the ‘scratch’ spread – all over her chin, around her mouth, in her ears… then her eyelids swelled. It all happened over a day or two. She became very quiet – which, since she does EVERYTHING at top speed, was really worrying. I got an appointment with our vet on Sunday and we took her in.
She is apparently allergic to the supermarket biscuits I had bought for them (she really is a Princess!), so we’re back on the Science Diet biscuits. She had a steroid injection and has just about finished a course of antibiotics, and is back to normal – thank goodness! She has been amazingly sweet about taking the antibiotics, which is a relief :-).
Sue came to our place for Christmas lunch, but was very unwell. She collapsed on our couch in tears, slept while we all ate lunch and had a rotten time that night. She phoned the hospital and they took her off the drugs for a couple of days.
I asked her if she would like to stop doing the diet and she said “Hell no! Imagine how bad it would be if I wasn’t doing the diet!”
She is incredibly brave and is now feeling very much better.
Christmas Day and Boxing Day were both stinking hot here, and VERY humid. We ate Christmas lunch outside – desperate to grab a breeze
I wanted to take pictures of what we ate, but my camera battery died. I wanted to show you how good a low-carb Christmas lunch could be 🙂 You’ll have to take my word for it.
I HAVE however, been eating too many carbs – new potatoes – fine if you’re an athlete (which I am NOT), but not so good if you’re supposed to be eating very few carbs.
How do I know I’ve eaten too many? Do you remember I told you about the “Vulcan” effect of the diet? – well that deserted me yesterday… A kind comment from a stranger had me sitting here with tears dripping off the end of my chin. Thank you Tracey, and welcome 🙂
Back into it now 🙂
