Just a quick update.
Miss Daisy is on no activity and tons of meds until we see the vet again Tuesday for an assessment - basically to find out if her back is healing up or do we take the drive over to PEI (two provinces away) because only the regional vet college does this kind of surgery.
There was no way she was going to be OK in a cage again however, so I sent out my husband (who thankfully got home from the North Pole for three weeks on Thursday) to get a second hand Pack and Play for babies instead. We have set that up in the living room so she can see us. It has wheels and we can take it into the bedroom with us at night. It is a pretty good solution, it confines her but doesn't make her feel trapped I don't think.
I really hope she turns to corner soon - my instinct is to just want to put her in the car and start driving to Charlottetown this afternoon.
Things like this expose a person's weaknesses.
I am proactive but at the point of it being a fault. If there is something wrong I want to get it fixed/done right away and there are situations when you have to give something some time.
Waiting is not my best thing, particularly when those black eyes are looking at me like they are now.
The upside is that I have spent the weekend quietly hand sewing the linings into the bodices of the flower girl dresses.
So far so good.
I will probably post pictures tonight when they are done.
My plan next was to start a muslin on my own dress but I am not ready to start such an intense project yet. Just don't have the focus right now and my being careful quota got a bit emptied out with these taffeta dresses for the little girls and I am going to need some moments for it to refill.
I am thinking I might take a break from the serious stuff when these little dresses are done and make say a loud camp shirt or some pull on linen pants in say purple.
As usual my sewing reflects where I am at the moment, and most of all, what I need.
