Sick As Not-A-Dog

Well I was right. I was sick, quite sick and I am still taking giant antibiotics and feeling poorly: but better. This year I haven't been acutely ill with the proper flu or some other such thing, but I seem to have been constantly unwell: With things that are not specifically related to my bone marrow, but probably caused by it.

I have been out to visit MrsDrWho because I am not contagious and I might as well be entertained at her house with scintillating conversation (on her part, not mine) and feeling yucky, as be at home feeling yucky and not diverted.

Peri after dinner

Peri went to the vet for her check up after the last visit. Dr Gary was very pleased her bloods were good and he prescribed double strength Tramadol for her to take every night. I have to watch that she doesn't drive or operate machinery!! The tablets are 'human' tablets and they do make rather drowsy, but that's good for the night time. The little patch where they shaved her fur for a blood test hasn't properly grown back yet.


We still went for a walk, and I had to eat semi-properly because the giant antibiotics have to be taken after food. Other than that we have been asleep, or I have been doing foolish things like carrying heavy magazine piles up to the recycling bin and hurting my side. I bought Gilly two new toys, but she only plays with them for a few minutes and then loses interest. She would rather woof at the cat next door.

I did ask my neighbour to help to pin and fit my bodice toile. I am so happy to have something that fits even half way well. I ended up making a second adjusted pattern because by the time I fiddled about with the first one in my ill state, it bore no likeness to what I started with.

Bodice mark 2

Now I just have to transfer the changes to the paper pattern and Bob's your uncle. I had planned to do it today, but I accidentally went back to sleep until 3pm. I have decided to make a box pleated skirt, like this one, and so the same with my material MrsDrWho brought back from Hawaii, with the green spot as a border as I only have 2 yards.

Other dress and skirt idea

I think Friday food will be OK for tomorrow because I took some photos a few weeks ago of something tasty. It just needs to be assembled. Now if I can just be well for a little while.....

I hate the giant antibiotics, even with food they make me feel ill :/

Sorry to hear that you have been unwell - hopefully things will turn around soon. Good news about Peri.


Wishing you (and Peri) much wellness. Giant antibiotics are the worst, I hate taking them! And double strength tramadol, poor Peri, she must be in a lot of pain. Good plan with the distractions - if you need more i finally posted on my blog!


I hope you are over the worst of feeling poorly.
Peri is looking so sweet!
