I'm sorry I've been neglecting my bloggie these last few days. On Wednesday I was helping mom pack up the Airstream to head north. We had a friend who came to help but then spent most of the time dining on fallen plums!!
So Wednesday evening papa got home and we all hopped in the truck and towed the moving house northbound. About two hours from our overnight stop, I started to feel a little funny in the tummy. I usually sleep in the car and don't even like to get out for potty breaks so when I sat at attention and kept "knocking" on the car door like I do at home, mom knew something was up. Let's just say I had bowel distress (edited for my sensitive readers). It made for a long ride and a long night.
Papa was proud of how well I was able to alert him and not have any accidents even though sometimes we had to dash outside FAST! This was in the overnight hours at a Walmart parking lot after he had been awake for 463997 hours traveling back from London. I love my papa. He didn't complain at all!!
By yesterday afternoon it had tapered off a bit but I was still suffering and it turned bloody. Mom being mom freaked out.
Luckily, my hero, Dr. Mitchell was available and calmed mom down. She asked her to find a pharmacy that would be open at that hour (6:30 p.m.) so she could call in a prescription. As luck would have it, a local pharmacist is here at the rally and kindly jetted off to his drugstore to pick up the medicine for me. Wasn't that nice??
Then since word travels fast in our Airstream family, everyone came to be sure I was okay. Including TWO vets who are also at the rally! Mom felt much relieved after knowing so many people were willing to help. I was a bit overwhelmed by the attention since I'm not completely comfortable with two-leggers. But when mom calmed down, so did I and then so did my big sister Cali. She worries about me and when she went outside and discovered the blood mom was standing over, she got pretty upset. She's very sensitive.
The good news is that I've started my medicine and am now over 24 hours without incident. Mom said I'll have to go to see Dr. Mitchell when we get home even if I seem completely better though.
Since mom has been making sure I rest and don't overdo it, I haven't been allowed to visit your blogs for a couple of days. I'm sorry. I'll try to catch up this weekend! Despite my tummy trouble, I'm feeling fine - hungry and active - so this rally has been a lot of fun. So many different smells and sights!
I'll post more tomorrow with a link to some photos! Airstreams are still rolling in today but by this evening we should have NINETY rigs!
