Another Episode For Jingle

 Well, unfortunately, Jingle started feeling poorly again late yesterday.    By the time we woke up this morning, she felt incredibly hot and could no longer stand.    I took her over to my  Mom's house and sent out an email/facebook alert asking people to pick her up and take her to the vet for me.   I had left my debit card at my Mom's house and whoever took her was going to get the pin from me.    I had a few people offer and my brother, Craig, ended up going for me.   For one, he's very compassionate and loving about animals so I knew I could trust him and two, since he's family I didn't feel like I was imposing TOO much.

Jingle once again received a "We have no freaking clue" diagnosis with the same treatment.   Since it worked so well last time, maybe she needs another round and it'll wipe it out for good.    I just wish we knew what "IT" is.     This vet brought up possible neurological problems, but the previous vet said that was completely ruled out due to the temperature.   I pointed that out to today's vet (Did I mentioned I was on speaker phone during the appointment ?)  but I had the feeling he would much rather be giving me some answer even if it was completely wrong.   I mean, at this point I've spent over $500 with no real diagnosis.    ugh 

It was a rough day.    When you're a single woman, with most of your family moved away or dead,  life can feel very very lonely.    I know I have friends and people always say "if you need anything, just let me know" but it's hard to put it out there and ask for help isn't it?     But today I did and I really appreciate everyone who responded - even if they couldn't go for me.    One of my rescue friends, Elisa, told me about a pet sitter that does vet transportation.    I definitely need to look into that so I hope more options in the future.

I'm glad the day is over - I had a really hard time concentrating at work.   I was upset and stressed all day long at work and just wanted to get home with my little Jingie Bear and I really wished JTK wasn't away at camp.     And when I got to my Mom's house to pick Jingle up I was greeted with an accusation of using my Mom's debit card to pay for  Jingle's vet costs.    Apparently "Gail" thinks she's the only one who has a checking account with Bank of America.   ::sigh::     Again, evidence of why I like dogs and cats so much.   :)

Piko has been a bit of a grump and he growled at Jingle while ago .... uh uh uh!  No way does that happen.   And you know what?   Right after I moved Piko and wouldn't let him lie next to Jingle, TRex jumped up right next to her and blocked Piko.   Isn't that sweet?   I'm very proud of TRex for coming to her aid - remember how much he loves cuddling with her during the winter?    Good Boy, Rex, take care of your "mommy" for an evening.
