If you follow me on twitter, you probably already know what my past couple of days have been like. Miku and I had a trip to the emergency vet last night, and a follow up for x-rays and blood work today. By "trip to the emergency vet," I mean that I immediately scooped Miku up under my arm and power-walked to the vet while crying like a baby. Though I am trying to remain optimistic that it's just a bout of indigestion (she vomited several times and is really lethargic), I am beside myself while waiting for her blood test results to come back. Please keep your fingers and toes crossed for Miku and me that she feels better and the results come back with good news. I have a sad little pup on my hands right now, and I'm watching her like an overprotective, crazy mother. I check on her every five minutes to make sure she is breathing - I am crazy. My best friend Lauren, who has years of veterinary experience and is doing her best to talk me off the ledge, told me that I'm never allowed to have children. It's a good thing I don't want any, because I couldn't possibly love them as much as I love my dog.

So, in an effort to curb my crazy while Miku is napping (so she can actually rest), I'm posting pictures from a happier day. About a week or so ago, Kim came in from Philly and Christine and I joined her for lunch and a little shopping. I rarely get out for anything purely social, since I'm forever chained to my sewing machine and my stupid computer (I say stupid because it's a lemon). Getting together with these two wonderful girls was such a nice change of pace. Check out their blogs to see what they were wearing! If you don't follow them already, I suggest you do, because they are very cool and down-to-earth ladies. And you know, not crazy like me.

  5. I hope Miku will be okay! I know with my two kitties, I would be crazy if something happened to them. My one cat was acting funny, and I remember carrying him to the bathroom while dialing the number to my vet, kinda hyper-ventilating and trying not to cry, LOL. Thank god I was able to compose myself better on the drive to the vet!

    Hang in there!

  11. I'm not sure which element of your outfit I love best. First I liked the coats, then the shoes and socks, and then the skirt. Simply put, I am in awe of your outfit. I would have never thought to put something together like that!

    I feel the same way about my dog and kids.
    I would do anything for my dog.
    If he needed a kidney and I could donate mine, I would.

  15. Hope Miku feels better. I know how it feels to have a sick doggy. Mine had a weird choking episode the other night and it scared the sh** out of me. Pets are family.

  19. I absolutely know what you are going through! The same thing happened to my little guy (twice). I hope Miku blood work comes back all clear. If you think she is dehydrated you can give her water-downed gatorade, Smalls really liked that. I pray that she is not having an reaction to any meds or vaccines? Smalls is super sensitive to steroids and that is what they give them for skin infections, and allergic reactions.. so his system went in to failure in the following 48 hours and he was rushed away from me and spent 4 days at the vet. Smalls and I are keeping You and Miku in our thoughts!!

  30. Oh no, poor Miku, I'll have all my fingers crossed for her. I'm sending all my good vibes over and hopefully the results will be good. Hang in there, Keiko. I can't imagine what you're going through, if anything happened to my Waffles I would be hysterical too. They may not be human, but they are our babies and we worry about them just as much.

  31. I totally know how you feel right now. We had a similar scare with our dog last month. He was vomiting blood and I got so scared that I almost passed out. Luckily, we later found out that he just swallowed a piece of wood and a day later he was completely fine.

    I hope your dog gets well soon!

  32. Poor Miku! I hope everything works out well and she'll be happy little puppy again!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'll keep my fingers crossed! I can understand you so well, I am just as crazy with my dog. The last time she had a little cold and the vet gave her an injection she had a horrible reaction to it when we returned home. She suddenly couldn't get up anymore, even so she tried very hard. Her back legs were lame and she looked terrible. Luckily all went back to normal by the evening, but my vet had to deal with a very very angry dog-mom in the meantime... ;-)
    Maybe your darling just has a little stomach flu and all will be fine!!

  34. best wishes for miku!
    but it's really important to stay optimistic... i have a little kitten (yeah, crazy cat-lady ;) ) which seemed to be very sick about three weeks ago. i couldn't help but panic because it didn't want to eat or do anything but sleep... we visited the vet every day for over a week, many examinations were done and in the end all of the symptoms turned out to be because of a low blood pressure which is not serious at all. i of course had already been close to a mental breakdown ;)
    so keep your head up, it'll most certainly end up fine!

  38. I don't think you're crazy at all, I remember when my dog got sick and she threw up a lot, among other things, I rushed her to the vet and I was so worried I almost started bawling, while she was getting tests done because I was so afraid that there was something seriously wrong with her because she's a border collie, which means shes very very energetic all the time, but she just was not herself. It turns out there was just a lot of gas built up in her system, and I just had to give her a couple different kinds of medicine. Anyways, I hope Miku is ok! I know how scary it can be, sometimes I wish animals could just talk to you and tell them how they feel. Also, I love all of your outfits. I really like that soft gray coat you have and the asymmetrically cut shirt!

  55. You are not crazy, I just had a horrible experience about two weeks ago where my little dog was attacked by two big dogs. I was freaking out too, your dog is a part of your family which is how it should be. I hope Miku is okay.

    ReplyDelete
  56. You are definitely not crazy. My dog has vomited twice tonight and I am super scared for her, really hoping that it's just temporary. But she's so old that you never know what's going on. We had a similar scare in the fall when she had to stay at the animal hospital for two nights, I hope this time it's not as bad =( I hope Miku gets better too!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Fingers crossed for Miku! I'd bet there will be many more days on the horizon like the one whose pictures you posted here. Try not to stress (though I know that's impossible!).
