Uncertainty Rules The Day

What is with this weather? 

Very cool for an April in the South.  40's and 50's for lows and maybe hitting a 70 here and there for a high.  And windy this week!

I intentionally delayed starting my tomatoes this year, but at 1 month old they are starting to flop over.  I'm trying to harden them off this week but the wind has been anywhere between breezy to flat out knock you down gusty.

We're supposed to get some cloudy, rainy days this weekend so I was hoping to plant Friday PM but brrrr....it's chilly!  These warm loving tomatoes are just going to have to suck it up.  My sweet peppers on the other hand had the good sense to stay small.  No more than and inch or two high after one month.  I'll keep them inside for now.

In other news, I finished staining the entire kitchen yesterday.  I took the curtains and blinds down and finished off the bay windows plus the rest of the kitchen cabinets and trim.  Glad that's over with!

I'm not sure how today is going to go down.  Some more painting and staining for sure.  Maybe some garden time.

But the bigger problem is Scooter-Boo.  Something's wrong.  I ran him over to the Vet yesterday morning as he has a Hx of Auto Immune Anemia.  He seemed listless and threw up his breakfast so I thought he might be having an episode.

The Vet ran in office blood work.  No anemia.  He gave him the once over but other than a mild ear infection, nothing.

Last night and this morning, no interest in food, no movement or social interaction either.  I'm getting concerned about dehydration as he only wet his mouth yesterday and today his mouth is very dry. 

So I called and left a message for the Vet. 

I'm assuming we'll be heading in for an IV at the least.  Probably more blood work, XRay...that sort of thing. 

Poor little guy.  It's been a tough year on the old man.

  1. Oooh, sure hope Scooter shakes off what's ailing him. Not wanting to eat or drink for the animals is never a good thing, but you're on top of the situation so let's hope it turns out just fine. How old is he?
