I have had a long week at work so far.
Dr. B is feeling really under the weather, so I ended up working on Tuesday also. Mom reluctantly agreed (thank you, Mom!) to watch the kids. On Monday we had a dog with presenting signs of leptospirosis (a bacteria you can get from opossums, dogs, rats, raccoons, moles and more) and causes acute kidney failure and/or liver failure. But, by the time that we were getting to that point of figuring this out, we had all exposed ourselves to this dog's urine (how it is transmitted) and thus potentially infected ourselves! I spoke to Dr. Moon that night and he advised me to start on antibiotics immediately until we get conformation of whether the dog actually has it or not.
Today I have spent the day trying to get caught up with the house. The laundry, cooking and daily clean was really behind. I am quite proud of all that I have gotten accomplished so far - but it is time to stop and get ready for church tonight.
I will keep all of my loyal readers posted on the suspenseful test results - we should get back on Friday. BTW - the dog is hanging in there. As I told the owner, every day he is alive is counted in the good column!
