« Moxie got boo boo's | Main | Power is back on »
November 2, 2011

Hello All - wanted to give you a quick update after getting slammed pretty hard by the nor'Easter here this weekend.

I had trees take down live wires that are now touching my house and the metal dog kennel fencing. We had to evacuate for safety and have no current ETA on when CL&P will be able to fix.

Moxie had her surgery the day of the storm and came through like a champ. It took 2 hours to drive her home in the storm on what is a typical 10 minute drive to the animal hospital.

Noway I was leaving her there alone though in a cold dark scary place because they lost power too right after her surgery!!

Within of few hours of getting her home - the little minx ripped open her stitches by pawing at the gate where I had her sequestered to use wee wee pads since her foot cannot get wet for 10 days until the stitches get out!!

Moxie has torn off her bandages which I've been fashioning out of gauze, medical tape, and baby socks no less than 15 times..She has been pretty unruly as we've been displaced and she is trying to heal. The pathology report is also delayed due to the lab losing power so still have no idea what we're dealing with. Just in survival mode at the minute..

Mox has been taking it all in stride...Mama, not so much.

Sorry if I'm not responding to your emails or texts - my cell phone is spotty and battery keeps losing it's charge!!

Will update more when I'm able. In the meantime here are some pics from the last 5 days.

Whew, That is GREAT news!... I hope the waiting will not be too long, that is the worst part...

Try to stay warm up there, and if the little monster insists on removing her wrappings, try the 3M horse wrap.. It can be bought at any feed store I'm sure (of course, this is the South).. It is self-adhesive to itself, and is virtually unremovable until it wears... We had to use it with The Toot to answer any question of its strength and durability..LOL
