Sick Pig

Well, this post isn't going to be as awesome as previously anticipated because I spent the morning at the emergency vet with my little guinea pig Fizz. He wasn't eating very much, was very lethargic, wouldn't pee or poop, and didn't even come out for his favorite treat this morning.
"I am stinky and very upset to be at the vet." -Fizz
Turns out, he has a serious bladder infection that may or may not have made it into his kidneys. It is very difficult to tell when this all started as Fizz is a paraplegic pig with very limited feeling in his rear extremities, therefore he doesn't exhibit signs of discomfort until it is pretty bad. We have antibiotics, he has eaten a little and peed quite a bit, though not poop yet. He is currently chilling on my desk.
Get out of my face with that camera, lady! I am being ill over here! LOVE ME!!!
Tomorrow I will write something better. Maybe about Thanksgiving or something else super awesome. Today has been way too screwed up and all of my work deadlines are even more urgent since I was 2 hours late.

 Happy fucking Monday to me. FML.

Aw, I hope your piggy feels better soon.

Thanks Charleen :-)

I get nervous when they get sick, especially since they are getting to be old dudes.
