The Can Opener’s “Vacation”

I’ve been playing nurse to the Can Opener

Okay, I guess she’s off the hook- this time.

Our Can Opener is on a kind of vacation from watching the critters this week because the Backup Can Opener had surgery a few days ago and she needed to be available to take care of him. But today and the last two days she has been sick (with what we presume is the flu)- yesterday was the worst.

It started two days ago with sharp pains in her tummy, nausea, weakness and dizziness. She was unable to even sit up on the couch for more than a few minutes and was completely unable to eat without pain getting worse. That’s why there was no post this morning.

I’ve been following her around like a shadow to keep an eye on her, but I couldn’t get her to type for me. In fact, she really couldn’t do much of anything- but she did take care of Twilight and me- and then she did something I’ve never seen her do since I was adopted- nothing. Absolutely NOTHING.

We don’t know what’s wrong- but it looks like she’s getting better now, because her the critters’ parents dropped by some medicine for her this morning and within a few minutes of taking it, the pains stopped, the nausea stopped, and now she can eat again. Only, she still is very weak and lightheaded. We’ll be back tomorrow!

Hey! My paw pads haven’t melted!
