Sophie will be an inpatient for 5 days while she receives vancomycin via a nebuliser 3 or 4 times per day. She will also have another cocktail of fucidic acid and rifampicin orally for 6 weeks.
We aren't looking forward to this at all as last time the oral antibiotics gave her tummy ache and in view of her recent tube wean, there could be catastrophic consequences with her eating. However, we have to try and fight the bug and hopefully eradicate it. Mr P (pseudo) hasn't shown himself since the beginning of the year now so Ms M is clearly a nasty piece of work.
However, she isn't as feisty as us and she will hopefully get her ass kicked.
Sophie has been getting into the holiday spirit and had lots of fun, swimming, ice skating and attending Christmas events.
We have also been rather busy with our new fur baby.
We would like you all to meet Alfie!
He is a whole heap of fun! Sophie absolutely adores him and he does her. He was 8 weeks old when we had him and he's now 12 weeks old. If anyone is interested he is a shih tzu :)
Oh and for the record, the picture above was after his first appointment at the groomers and she had put that bow in his hair! Ian was horrified ;D I thought he looked cute!
He's such a naughty boy but so adorable with it. If he's not brushed regularly he ends up looking a right scruffy mess :D He will be getting his coat done properly in the new year to stop knots and butt nuggets settling in his fur.
We will leave this post by wishing you all a very happy and healthy new year. Thank you for all the continued support we've had in 2012. See you on the flip side in 2013.
Sophie and the only thing she really drinks...water!
