emotional but stable

Yesterday I spoke with the vets and they said at 4pm that Erasmus could come home. Now this would be fine but my boss is on holiday and the vet required that we keep him in a cage (erasmus not my boss). Damn lets start again

Erasmus needs home care for a few days. The vet requested we keep him in a cage if we cant supervise him. We cant let him get any bruises because he’s on blood thinners.

So at short notice with my boss away I had to try and arrange some time off. Luckily all my work is in hand and in a good position not to worry too much about it. Luckily I had 4 days holiday left to take before Christmas. Even more luckily I seem to have the most understanding and helpful bosses ever. So today I am home with my boy having the rest of the week off, spending as much time as possible with him out of the cage and resting.

Last night was difficult, I got a cab from work to the vets and back home again. The cabs cost £15 and the vets bill was £291 after all the extras like the cage. It was painful making Erasmus settle in a new cage but it was for his safety. He moaned for most of the evening but was quiet all night which can only be a good thing.

For the moment Erasmus has feeling in his leg because he gets annoyed when I touch it. Its still very very limp and he struggles to walk very far. Apart from this he is still insistent that he can just jump all over the sofa. He’s not eaten much at all and I’ve been shopping and even bought him fresh chicken breast, which I have no idea how to cook because Scotty and I do not eat chicken.

I’m yet to see him poo which will be the point that I will believe he is getting really well.

So yeah, a whole week on the sofa with the cat I was not sure I would ever see again. how lucky am I?

very and it was worth every penny.

we met up with other flickrites on Sunday and went to Eaton park.

The weather was fantastic and our friend Robin brought some bubbles for the kids to play with.

ALL the flickrites loved taking photos of the bubbles, you can see more of everyones photos here.

I was even lucky enough to get one bursting.

Even better we heard that Erasmus might come home on Monday night.
