My sister just emailed to say our beloved dog has been admitted to the University Specialist Centre's ICU with a serious and life-threatening illness.

I blame myself for making this quip.

---
*Update*
Her condition is now described as "stable" and she has been moved from the ICU to the general ward. It will be up to two weeks til we know whether she is going to respond to treatment, and she may need to go back into the ICU at any point during that time. I am told, however, she seems more or less "bright" and has, in fact, started howling in a deeply annoying fashion and flinging herself bodily onto whoever opens her cage to attend to her, presumably in the hope they will hold her and/or take her home. That's my girl.

Oh. But this sets her travel date back by six to TWELVE months. I think I mentioned our plans to bring her with us to Singapore? Well, she started getting sick almost as soon as Mr Bea accepted the job. Since then she's clocked up an impressive series of illnesses, and has been more or less constantly under veterinary care - but as an outpatient, until now. This is one hell of a sickie.

Can't the universe be a little nicer to you this weekend?

(And your quip had nothing to do with this. . .)

Your quip had nothing to do with this!

Oh, I am so sorry to hear about your dog. I hope she will have a speedy recovery, poor thing.

I hope she continues to improve. It is so hard for our 'kids' to be sick.

Patience said...

Bea, I'm so glad to hear that she's on the mend....

Baby Blues said...

I'm glad she's on the road to recovery. Bringing her to Singapore sounds like a good idea. Dogs hate to be left behind.

Oh, I'm glad to see she is doing better. I don't get why when it rains it pours. It is a new week so we'll hope that this one is much better.

Oh Bea. Words can't describe how fucking angry I am at the universe for you right now.

*hug* I am so sorry.

(And the PP are right. Your quip had nothing to do with this.)

Hopeful Mother said...

I hope she continues to improve. What horrendous timing. The universe owes you big for this...

Lut C. said...

Stable is encouraging, but cured would have been better. Hang in there!

Vee said...

So glad she is improving, I bet she misses you terribly.
I hope she makes a full recovery soon so you can be with you...poor girl.

Vee said...
