21st Century Lesbian Trailer Trash

More with the Dog. And Three a.m. Blues.

Could we do some sort of a jazzy riff with that? It has a nice ring to it. Something on the order of Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee:

Took my dog to the vet
They gave her a shot
Came back with more meds
And my dog she was hot...

I got the flea bitten, tree sniffin', moon howlin'
Wake me up at 3 a.m. blues................

Poor Jaz showed me her doggie bum last night and she had chewed around her tail until she drew blood. I am a bad doggie mom. I got myself out of bed and bathed her, then sprayed her li'l bum with a hydrocortisone spray.

This morning? More blood. Not good. I managed to get away from work about 3 p.m. and took her to the vet.

Let me digress. This vet was cute. As in cute. Late 30's with a long mop of frizzy, not quite strawberry blonde hair, freckles, tall and thin. She was wearing this really cute, long pencil skirt in a golden tan. Very nice.

LavenderDE agrees with me. Girls do this kind of thing better than boys.

She decided to get very aggressive with the skin problem. She gave Jaz a cortisone shot. She gave her an ear wash solution and neomycin drops for her ears. She gave her a salve for the little boogers around her nose. She gave her a new shampoo and an oral antibiotic because she has a bacterial overgrowth along with the yeast infection on her skin.

The dog is a happy grrl. The itch is gone and she is sleeping peacefully at my feet. So where does the 3 a.m. part come into all of this?

I'm doing another early morning playing like I'm a nurse gig. Actually, Nurse Debbie was more than kind and said I didn't have to be there until 5 to relieve her. Now that's team work.

So, it wouldn't be such a big deal if I didn't have this audit coming up on Friday. Thank the goddess for people like Nurse Angie and Nurse Josie who are going through charts like Ninja Nurses.

And that's the story of why I will not be here on Wednesday morning.

Oh how I used to hate audits when I worked in childcare and had to fix those files before the state came round to see if we were certifying correctly for eligibility.

Nothing so sweet as a dog sleeping at your feet at 3:00 a.m.

See ya on Friday.

Everyone at corporate has their panties in a twist EG. We really aren't a big target because we are not a medicare facility. But they sent the Big Guns in yesterday anyway. I expect to be camped out there tonight fairly late. And probably will be in early tomorrow to cover the floor.

The puppy is feeling much better. Now that she has had the cortisone shot I can see that she had been pretty darned uncomfortable.

I am 99% certain that the vet is straight and married. But looking and lusting are always allowed. ;^)
