Bills Bills Bills! My health, my dogs health & quick pics!!

So Monday was my first visit to the physio. I was nervous as anything, I kept expecting it to hurt like hell & then I’d end up fainting like I did with my Xrays. I’m happy to say it didn’t hurt much & I didn’t faint. In fact, it left me feeling a lot better! Yay! I’m off to Physio again today, and again on Friday. Yes, 3 times a week. Yikes!

The Physio was really great at explaining everything that was wrong! I still felt a little in the dark as to what exactly was happening as I was quite out of it at the hospital! She took the time to feel my back & show me specifically where my problem was & what was wrong. My spine is currently curved in an S shape & I have a displaced disc. She pressed down on where it should be & then pressed down to show me where it was. OUCH! Also, I have muscle spasms and a possible ruptured muscle.


Everyone, bar Henry, is in the wars at the moment! On the Easter long weekend both my dog babies had to visit the vet! On the Saturday, Ginny was booked in to see the vet about her habit of biting her paws. He has had to wear a cone for 2 weeks now whilst the area heals. She looks so sorry for herself in the cone, but oh so adorable. It has not improved her mood and she has since become Super bitch!

Frodo got rushed to the emergancy vet on Easter Monday. He wasn’t able to shut his eye (including to blink), which lead to it constantly watering and his mouth had started to droop! I was terrified, whilst he was behaving normally I just remember thinking “Please don’t let it be a stroke!”. It wasn’t a stroke, thank heavens. He’s lost feeling in his nerves to the area around his eye. He’s on some medication & is supposed to have a follow up visit this week. It’s slightly better, but not fully functional.

So now, I’m left with a crazy amount of bills! Guh! The invoice for the ambulance ride came in on Monday, $820! Lucky I’m on a pension, so I get it half price at $410! Only thing is… I’m on a pension! Which basically means I live off of $160 a week! So thats, $410 for the ambulance. $300 on the vets, not including Frodos follow up. $50 per physio appointment. All up… $860. Who needs to eat!? I’m really lucky at the moment that my other half has a credit card, but paying him back is going to be a bitch!

And yes, I will soon be investing in ambulance cover!

Sorry about the whining! I just needed to vent!
