Not A Good Day

While I’m still slogging along with the new computer, I was tied up today with Ringo. She is at the vet’s with a broken jaw, and surgery will be required to fix it.

The vet and I have our suspicions as to how it happened, but at the moment we know she wasn’t struck by a car or in a fight with another creature.

The vet is pumping her full of antibiotics, fluids, and pain killers, to prep her for the surgery. It isn’t clear when it happened, because she was still going about her routine this morning, even though she had to be in pain. She is tough and does things her own way, if she didn’t she wouldn’t be Ringo.
