Tuesday Coonhound Blogging: We almost lost Creole last night. She was sick all weekend so I made an appointment for this morning. Last night I decided to see if I could catch the vet before she left for the night, and it’s a good thing I did. She had acute and very severe pancreatitis, and the doctor said she may not have made it through the night. After IV fluids, metronidazole, tramadole and a massive dose of some kind of narcotic (she didn’t know what hit her), she’s recovering well after a night in a coma-like state. We’re heading back for a follow-up and more IV fluids now. She’ll probably spend the day there while I try to find someone to clean my destroyed carpeting.
The Lost Party, the strangest primary season in memory reveals a GOP that is tearing itself apart. It’s very long, but it’s a great read. I’m wondering if we should all start donating to Santorum. I still think Romney will win the nomination, but a Santorum/Obama showdown will have the added benefit of showing the world just how incredibly crazy mainstream Republicanism has become. Plus, the Prez will win 45 states. (Guess which ones he’ll lose.)
