And then - in the middle of it all - the Duchess became ill. Gallstones were suspected but an ultrasound turned out negative. Upon further testing, involving radioactive isotopes, it was discovered that her gallbladder was not functioning up to speed. It was still working, but not quite perfect. Some people live with that forever and have no problems. But in this case surgery was scheduled and work days were adjusted and family was notified.
Then a few days before surgery the Duchess had another attack.
Only this time she realized the pain was mainly on the left side - the Gallbladder is on the right. Back to the surgeon and back to the drawing board. Thankfully, and surprisingly, it turned out to be a bad food allergy. An easy fix after all that!!!
Then yesterday the Duchess had to have a tooth pulled and some bone in her jaw worked on. She spent the day on the couch moaning like a sissy. The pills they gave her really make her dopey. She had ice cream for dinner last night because "soupy ice cream tastes better than chicken broth". Well, I can't argue with that.
So, there you have it. Now you know where we've been and what's been happening. I have lot's to show you next time because we went camping and it was great!
Till then I will leave you with some pictures.
This is Bear visiting with our neighbor Oscar. He is an albino Doxie.
This is me playing hide and seek. Can you see me?
