We all went to collect her after John got home from school today. At this moment she is sleeping in her bed, happy to be home.
We have a cocktail of tablets to administer, a special diet over the next week and a regime that would rival a military operation - adhered to with the help of a timetable that I have drawn up complete with tick boxes - I kid you not, I have always been a girly who loves her tick lists.
I'll whisper the next bit - yes, we have had the main event - what a relief, no innuendo intended.
Thank you for popping back - as the vet reminded us we are not out of the woods yet but I do feel a renewed sense of optimism, not that I ever doubted she would come back to us, but I am aware it will take a little while for Tess to regain full health.
On another happy note I received a beautiful card from my friend Louise, she is wonderfully talented, to say congratulations on becoming an SU Demo - what with all that is happening I haven't managed to photograph it yet - I will and I'll post it tomorrow - pop back and take a peek and you will see just what I mean.
