Half a century ago.
Half a century ago, early in the morning this should have been two egg triplet was born. They discovered me when my mother had a miscarriage and my identical twin never developed as he should and parts of him has been removed surgically, from my buttocks 🙂 well just beside my tailbone tobe honest because it caused an inflammation. I have most likely more parts in there somewhere but as long as he doesn’t argue with me I’ll let him stay.
I have a paid day of from work today since it is my half century birthday. I had planned to go to a café to have a pot of coffee and a Budapest pastry or if they wouldn’t have that some Swedish Schwarzwald cake. The original Schwarzwald cake is a chocolate cake and the Swedish one is a nut meringues cake. But instead I spent some time at the vet office. Nova has a really bad ear infection this time. We stopped the latest treatment on Thursday and she was back to her happy self again but then on the night towards Saturday she started flapping her ears so bad that she woke me up in the middle of the night.
So I cleaned her ears and started the treatment again. As soon as I had done that she stopped flapping er ears and everything seemed ok. At least until yesterday afternoon when Sune showed a too big interest in her right ear. I thought it was because of his intense licking her ear was soaked but it turns out that puss was running out of the ear. So now she takes really strong pills for ten days and after that I’ll continue with the other stuff we already have used.
I was lucky to get the old vet and he had the same thoughts about the vet I met last Friday 🙂 He said that it doesn’t matter how good grades or how a good vet You are if You can’t handle the human in the right way. She hadn’t even said hi to him when they met the other week. He will continue to work there because he loves the job, he just don’t love the new demands they put on every vet now days. They have never used computers in this vet station but that is now a demand and all nurses must from now on have a license. His nurses have worked there for ages and knows very well what to do, when to do it and how. So until they get that license they aren’t allowed to work as animal nurses. I would trust them with my animal’s life but that counts for nothing I’m afraid.
So no pastry or cake for me today but I got a surprising text message on my phone when I was waiting at the vet office, my newest neighbors (the ones with the bees) invited me for a piece of apple pie later tonight :-)I guess they had seen an ad in the papers this morning. The news papers put in ads when someone has his/ hers 50th, 60th 65th and so on birthday. I haven’t said anything and I doubt anyone in the village knows when I’m born.
Have a great day!
