Thanks for the support. Yesterday and this morning I was so exhausted that I might have given up but my hubby won't. He is a wonderful husband and he loves Blocker. He and I went back to bed and slept till almost noon today so I can make it now. There is not much change in Blocker today. We gave her some pain medicine and she is resting a little more comfortably. The tech from St. Louis called to check on her this morning and we do have support if we need it.

I love those veggies.

Well we were wrong about the rest this weekend. This morning we got up early to feed and give Blocker her meds and she was having trouble breathing, was bloated, her stomach was distended and firm. We called the vet right away and she worked her in. Her heart and lungs are okay but she is distended with gas so we are hoping her GI track is not shutting down. We are having to give her a lot more meds now - some meds to keep her GI tract going and meds to get rid of gas. Plus her heart med, Lasix, and antibiotic and we have to be sure she eats her syringe feedings. We have been through this before with other chinchillas and it usually doesn't work. Say a prayer for us.

We are very pleased with their progress and basically too tired to do much of anything other than take care of them.

Love the fighting church food bank - roflmbo!! You kill me!

Hubby and I got up at 5:30 to take Porkie and Blocker to their new vet in Chesterfield, Missouri. It is a little further than our current vet but it seems a lot farther. It's hilly and pretty there though, a really nice green area. Two of my favorite grocery stores are in the same block as the new vet. We liked her. She was very knowledgeable and confident. She works part time at this exotic vet clinic and part time at an emergency veterinary hospital in Illinois which would be a little closer to us but much easier to get too, providing that she ever gets the dental equipment there to do dental surgery. She is trying. She lives in Illinois too, close to where my son went to college. She did a thorough exam on both chinchillas and thought Porkie was pretty healthy, other than his teeth. She thought Blocker's heart failure was under good control. She did surgery on Porkie first and his teeth were the worst they have ever been. He had 2 abscessed teeth and a spur on each of 3 lower molars on one side that were cutting into his jaw. Blocker needed sedation before her surgery. Her teeth were also terrible. She had an abscessed tooth too and it was loose and had to be pulled. She had spurs on each side cutting into her jaw. Blocker had trouble coming out of sedation so they had to give her a med to reverse it. This caused her to come home "high". She was extremely wild, like a teenager, and I didn't get her to go to sleep until early this morning. She even wanted to go visit the boy chinchillas in their cages and was perched on one of their water bottles staring at one of them. LOL. Hubby thought it was funny. The boy chinchillas didn't know what to think. We had our hands full. They are doing better already though. We have seen small improvements in both of them. Porkie tried to eat something out of his bowl for the first time in weeks. They are less resistant to eating. Hubby and I, on the other hand, are ready to fall over. LOL. I keep thinking I will get something done today but so far it hasn't happened.

The travel time is about the same. They are a few miles apart in a city. The fur babies need surgery as soon as possible. Every day is a day too long too wait. Hubby and I seem to feel that no matter what we need to move on.

wow that is quite a dilemma, what is the travel time difference between the old vet and the new vet? and how are the fur babies doing?? I don't think I could be much help, but go with your gut instinct.

I need your best advice. Guess who just sent a group email to all of his patients? Our exotic vet who we have tried to contact since May 12, May 23, June 7 with no response. We told him each time that Porkie needed dental surgery and that Blocker was seriously ill. I'm sure everyone here knows all of this as our whole lives have revolved around trying to keep them alive and find a vet to help them. I have talked of very little else as it consumes my life. He is finally going to be available this weekend and says he will be more dependable for the monthly visits in the future. I called Benny and he and I both feel we are better off going with the new vet but I want other people's opinion. We don't really know the new vet's experience with chinchillas but we do know out pets can't wait months for care any more. We like our former vet but can't deal with his unavailability. In his defense, he is retired and has moved on to another job and he does this to help us out but it isn't enough for our old chinchillas. We have lost pets in the past from not being able to reach him or see him. We have the problem of the unknown with the new vet and don't know if we will like her or if she will be a good fit for us or even how much it will cost. We were able to contact the new vet and get an appointment in a little over a week which is a lot better than we usually could with our former vet. Have you got any thoughts on this?

The vet had to change the appointment as she has a doctor's appointment so I'm not sure yet.

At least you know now you can't handle all the veggies.

I am fixing my hubby a nice Father's Day meal and am taking care of the fur babies and not much else. Blocker is feeling a little better.

hope Blocker feels better ..

I had to take off tracking all the veggies ( at the bottom ) - too high carbs for me - have to go down to 2 cups veggies and 1/2 cup berries per day .. I have been able to get back to 1/2 hour of exercise a day :0)

I don't use that sparkpeople function. It didn't work for me. I try to stay 1200 - 1500 calories a day.

I think they compare food intake to exercise ... I never did understand it .. I just try to stay around 1300-1500 cals .. under 100 carbs a day , when I get in a lot of exercise they go over 2,000 cals

and hey the coconut tortilla are working for me - bloodsugars are much better - I am too

emoticon oopps, chinchillas that explains the exotic pets and so precious! I had a guinea pig I loved to carry around on my shoulder.

Sparkpeople IT messed with my calorie range that was set 1,000 to 1,200

I don't track in details, usually copy to next day staples---milk, eggs, protein shake, vegs, brazil nut, then when I have time I add more like lean proteins. I'm on low carb plans so I don't have to think of food as a number for every bite of healthy foods.

Today I saw DAILY CALORIE GOAL: 1990 TO 2340, and laughed I really thought it was funny, if I ate that much I would gain all my weight back. The SP tech knows I can survive eating less because i log on daily and recording an average wt. loss of 1-3 pounds a week.

Does your calorie range get changed too?

They are chinchillas, not cats. We are used to driving 100 miles so hopefully it will not be further than that.

Friday I took Porkie and Blocker both to the local vet who saved Blocker in May when she almost died from the abscessed tooth and CHF. The vet was so thrilled with Blocker's progress. I thanked her and told her that Blocker would be dead now if it wasn't for her and she was so happy to get the praise and the thank you. She gave us some antibiotics for Porkie and I explained my problem with our exotic vet not responding to our emails and she is going to try help us. She is going to look for a vet who she knows and trusts to do their molar surgeries. She apparently has a lot of connections and says she will come up with someone though it may take her a few days.

He doesn't have an office. He's retired and comes into the hospital he used to work at just to work on our chinchillas when they allow him to.

We have a lot of parent birds with their young at the feeders right now. I'm tired today. Trying to get my metabolism going.

We are trying to get Porkie and Blocker into the vet soon. Please say a prayer for us.

no thanks on the wren poo, I've noticed there are a lot of birds flying out there, a few weeks ago when I was done cleaning at the Town Hall, in the parking lot there was a LOT of poo and the Budget Director coming in said there was about 40 birds flying around and made the bird strikes, I laughed and told her I think the birds are out for someone in the Town Hall. It was also on the sides of the building, don't know how they got that close to building??

Oh my, you are busy today Mort, and you take such good care of your animals, no wonder more come to live. Little baby racoons....they would be cool cute! Ugh, with a nest being made in your beautiful lamp and then mess all over your wicker furniture! I can just imagine your beautiful, quaint screened porch! That would be where I'd love to hang out!!

Busy day here. Lots of work to do. 3 loads of laundry and some cleaning on the agenda. I got my outdoor chores done early - the 6 feeders filled, the compost taken out, the trash burned, the porches/patios/pavers swept early before it gets hot. It felt wonderful outside when I did it and I didn't want to come back inside. Hubby killed some weeds outdoors over the weekend and I weeded my 2 hosta beds and a shade perennial bed. We are keeping up with taking care of Blocker. She still has no appetite.

Did I tell you that we have wild baby raccoons? Their mom brought the 2 of them to their bowl last night. They are so cute! And our wrens squeezed under the door of my screen room and made a nest in my stained glass light. They had 4 babies who pooped all over our wicker patio furniture, spa, etc. LOL.

It keeps clouding up here like it is going to rain but it doesn't.

it's raining today so when I get home from Church, I'll be able to do some housework and not feel guilty about not being outside

I hope you have a great weekend too. It is pouring rain here so hubby and I took care of the pets and went back to bed.

I need to get back to putting things on the back porch now that a lot of the remodeling back there is done.

Horrible!! My hubby tends to have problems with this so I put little fences around my plants. Your solution should work well.

I have work to catch up on today and hope to get some extra decluttering done.

Oh no Janice, how could that be? That's too bad. It sounds like you're getting ready to make it pretty again though! Landscaping blocks are a good determent! emoticon

sometime over the weekend, someone helped me mow the top part of my lawn where I had a butterfly bush and some flowers, unfortunately when he mowed he mowed everything down, I thought it was my brother but when I asked him he said no, come to find out it was my brother-in -law, can't really say anything he thought he was helping me.I put up some landscaping blocks where I'm going to replant.
