Still working on it!

I am still working on my project, I actually ran into a few snags that I wasn't really expecting, but don't worry, I am taking lots of "during" pictures for you.

Since that isn't quite ready, I thought I would tell you about a conversation I over heard at an appointment for my mom. It went like this.

Lady 1: Did "Lacy"
stay in the hospital last night? (Guessing on the name)

Lady 2: I think they kept her because she didn't have to have an IV.

Lady 1: If you have to have an IV, they don't keep you overnight?

Lady 2: Well, if they need an IV, they go to the emergency room, and they do it there, but they can't stay there overnight.

Lady 1: So they don't put an IV in at the Hospital?

Lady 2: No, they aren't able to do it there, you have to go to the emergency room for that.

Lady 1: What are you suppose to do when they are sick? Can they stay overnight in the ER?

Lady 2: No, because there is no one there at night to take care of them.

Lady 1: I can't believe that if you take your pet to the ER, they can't keep them overnight!

It was then I thought to myself, first of all, Ladies, you must really be in tune to your pets. Mine stay outside, and unless, they aren't getting up and moving around, or bleeding, I can't tell if they are sick.

Second, where is the animal hospital you keep talking about. I have lived here my whole life and I don't know where the hospital is, Vet's offices I know, hospital, not sure.

Also, get a new vet, my vet will keep my animal overnight if it needs it.

*Disclosure: I too love my animals, I am not a hater. I just don't have the money to throw around if they aren't feeling well.

  1. Hi Renee! Our vets office will not keep pets overnite, but the Emergency Pet Care will. When our dog, Missy was bitten by a rattlesnake last year I took her to the E.R. that nite and they put in an I.V. and kept her that night... then in the morning I would pick her up and take her to our regular vet where she would stay during the day. Late in the afternoon I picked her up and took her back to the E.R. where she again would spend the nite. With the I.V. needle in, I could not bring her home. It was a lot of running back and forth, but Missy survived and is still with us today. Yes, involved a lot of money, $3K, but that's just what we city folk do when it comes to our pets. We are empty nesters, so our pets are our kids now. Yep, we are silly. LOL


    P.S. Love your new sink!!
