(*sigh*)

So baby was good, cervix was fine. I do have an infection though, so they're starting me on antibiotics. I wonder if that might be what's causing the pain- it's hard to tell. Either way, better to have caught it now.

The clot was... who knows. I saw a different OB since mine in on vacation, and the machine they used sucked worse than the one I normally get the checks done on. This OB thought it looked good and wasn't concerned about it at all... but she was also ridiculously peppy the entire visit. I'll wait until I actually talk to my OB, because she's a little more down to earth and knows my history better. The OB I saw today didn't seem like she really examined my chart that much, to be honest.

We had to put our surviving ferret down today. He went into renal failure, and his health rapidly declined. I hate this. We had him for 6 years, and we loved him so much. He always made us laugh even when things got really bad, his little ferret war dances were adorable, and he loved to play tug of war with me. I miss him so much already :(

We lost our other ferret earlier this year due to similar issues. And in February, our twelve year old cat passed away. It hasn't been the best year so far. I really hope things don't continue down this path.

I am so sorry that you lost your ferret. We had to put our 11 year old dog to sleep yesterday and my heart is breaking from having to do so. Praying for you!!!!

Oh, sweetie that's got to be rough. Losing a cherished pet is always hard. I really hope that things start to look up and that your infection soon clears up. Keeping you in my thoughts!

Very sorry about the ferret.

Oh I hate those grainy-mulchy ultrasound machines! Hope you get a better scan next time.

Can I make a request? A belly pic? Please?

Pretty Please? You can totally kick me if you want to say no!

I am so sorry to hear about your ferret and this hard year in general. Hope the antibiotics make you feel better soon...

Oh no. I am so sorry about the loss of your remaining ferret. Poor little guy. It is so hard to say goodbye, and having had two other pets pass away this year, on top of all of the stress of bed rest and worrying about Nombie, man you have had a hard time lately. Hugs.
