Waiting

Had a day of waiting around today because Mulder had to go back to the vets for some more x-rays. Last Wednesday, while he was on his walk, I noticed he had begun drooling again. Wednesday night, he began coughing again. He had some blood tests on Thursday which came back negative, which is good. But something is still causing him problems. Anyway, he went in this morning (I'm posting a day late) and the waiting for the phone call was excruciatingly painful. I just paced all day and got nothing done. When they finally wrong they told us they couldn't see anything that would cause these symptoms, though that doesn't mean there isn't something small there, but that he does have an enlarged heart - possibly as a result of the ridiculously sized tumour he had inside him before. Anyway, he's been given some steroids and we have to go back for a check up next week. He's back home and looking a little sorry for himself. On a positive note, these wooden models do come in handy when you need something to photograph and don't have a lot of time :)
So good of Mr Man in being patient while his pat Mulder os being checked over at the vets !! Hope all goes well for Mulder

The waiting is the worst part...give Mulder a scratch from me (have one for yourself if you must)

Great that the Man is there to keep your mind on something other than Pup. Do hope all is getting better for him. We always ate to see our dogs hurting.

@beryl @jesperani @mittens @olenadole @suzanne234 @cherrymartina @hermann @megpicatilly @onewing @aglennc @loweygrace @lyndamcg @danette @mandygravil Thank you. The steroids seem to be helping him which is good. I just worry now that when we get up in the morning the steroids will have bulked him up and he'll have a Lab face with the body of a Bulldog - imagine that :o

This model really tells your waiting story well.
Hope all is well with Mulder - they become such an important part of your family that we worry when they are not well.
