A bit of a traumatic afternoon

Kitty was bleeding again this morning 😔 Luckily got an appointment at the vet this afternoon. They ran a whole heap of tests on her again, which of course cost an arm and a leg 😱 Surprisingly, though, some of her test results came back better than the ones from just a few weeks ago! This little one is a fighter, I tell you 💪 Her doctors in recent years have been surprised at her resilience. Heck, we’re surprised sometimes! 😄

But I wasn’t there with her when she saw the vet, though. As with so many places in HK now, everyone checks your temperature. And my temperature beeped a very high 38.1°C today, well above the cutoff temperature point when they’ll tell you to leave the premises (which is 37.5°C) 😱 It was a hot day (the maximum temperature was 35°C 🥵), so they gave me some cold water to see if that’d help. They took my temperature again soon after, but it was still coming in slightly above 37.5°, so I couldn’t stay at the clinic 😔 N stayed with her instead while I just went back home.

She actually peed in her carrier on the way to the vet, so we had to clean her up when she got home. We gave her a rinse while she was still in the carrier, it was the only way we could do it without her running away. As you can imagine, she was NOT happy. And this was after spending time at her doctor’s office – and having to wear an Elizabethan collar to boot! It was a very traumatic afternoon for the little one 😩

You can hear her growling 😡

So now I’m a bit concerned about my own health 😔 I checked my temperature again when I got back home and I got 37.8°C! Still high 😔 I was feeling perfectly fine this afternoon, but now I have a bit of a sore throat. I’m not sure if it’s psychological or if I genuinely have a sore throat… 🤒 And with all the COVID cases at the moment in HK, I can’t help but freak out a little bit!

    1. Thanks. I did check my temperature again, and it’s back down to around 36.7° 😅 I wonder if the heat yesterday, as well as the stress of Kitty being sick, contributed to the high reading 😔
