Six Word Saturday

Six Word Saturday

Dog sick, mom sick and tired.

Well, that about sums up the weekend.  My husband is home with a sick dog and I’m at my mom’s with a sick and tired mom.  Not exactly a stellar holiday weekend, but at least it is all covered and I’m giving my mom a little bit of financial break by being here.  My six year old is a bit bored, but she’s surviving and we’re all getting by.  The puppy has parvo.  She seems to be doing okay, but my husband is having to take her in to the vet everyday for IV treatments and anti-nausea shots.  That’s $130 a day.  Plus the $430 for the first day of treatment.  That was pretty much the last thing we needed at the beginning of a new month.  But, again, we’ll get by.  We are going to dinner at my sister’s tomorrow and then heading back home.  But, I’m sure we will be here at my mom’s a lot more going forward to help her out.  So, now I have to figure out how to balance everything going forward.  But, we’ll figure it out.  Somehow…

    1. Dog is already improving. She is feisty and annoying again! I’m afraid my mom is not going to improve. I just hope they can figure out a way to manage her pain and nausea better than it seems to be going now. Thanks for the comment though!

      1. Manage pain and nausea would be good and I am sure it is hard for you to see her going through it. Sorry she is not going to improve.


  1. So sorry to hear about your Mom’s health and about your doggy’s parvovirus 😦 I hope they get both get well soon ❤
    P.S. $130 a day? I didn't know vets had such a hefty price rate O_o


    1. Thanks for the positive thoughts. The puppy is already back to her old, hyper and annoying self! My mom, not so much, but she’s been a little bit better since the weekend. And yes, that vet charge was to get an IV under the skin treatment to keep her from getting dehydrated and an anti-nausea shot. I really need to look into pet health insurance. 🙂

      1. Oh I’m glad about your puppy!! Annoying pets are still adorable 😀
        And oh, I hope your mom recovers fully as soon as possible. 😦 I’ll remember her in my prayers ❤
