Last week it got cold. So I moved my bed into the middle of the room away from the windows. Then I was faced with moving the quilt that was hanging on the wall over it.
So I did this instead..
Here’s my little white bedroom tree. Found at Big Lots. I decided to go with a bit of elegance with this one. I added more gold and the two gold reindeer alongside the tree.
I thought: Well, she just wants to be quiet and left alone. I went back to bed for about two seconds. Jumped up, turned on the lamp, and came marching in here. That’s NOT like Abi.
I picked her up and stuffing fell to the floor. She’d been chewing her bandage and being very sly. I took her back to bed with me, got an Ace bandage I had and wrapped it up and down again. She had only exposed about 1/4 inch of the wound.
Needless to say, Abi had to sleep next to me and I was on the alert.
I brought the hated cone collar that next door neighbor Charlie went to Petsmart to get me and showed it to her. I held it up and told her it was going back around her neck if she kept it up. She can get out of it, but she still hates the sight of it. Maybe I induced a little fear.
It’s hard for her to get comfy with that leg. So basically my head was up against her butt and leg all night so I could feel her movements. If I felt her jostle, I woke up.
No more chewing last night. Phew!
Gonna be a long road, I fear. Till this wound heals and they can take the staples out. Or before Abi beats them to it.
Friday I ordered my next door neighbor Charlie, who has been so helpful, an Edible Arrangement. So now I feel a little better about having had to bother him. He said it was huge and he was going to have to take it completely apart to refrigerate it.
Maybe I should have looked at the sizes a bit more closely. But I’d never ordered one before. Oh well, he shouldn’t have to buy fruit for awhile!
