Super Mom

House of sick and injured

Zander has flu and has had flu all week long.  It’s pretty amazing that he never shared his germs with my mom, who just had an operation done on her shoulder yesterday.   Her muscle had torn loose from her bone and the whole operation just sounds extremely painful to me.

This morning Zander woke up with tooth ache and by now he has a swollen cheek from it.  Our dentist / friend has not been answering my calls and frankly I might have to kick him when I finally get hold of him.

Then tonight, Quintus’ hamster broke his leg.  Yes…you read that correctly.  He broke his leg.  His little tiny bone has pushed right through his skin.  We did take him to the vet and we tried to get it back in it’s place and bandaged up.  Unfortunately it didn’t last that long.  Tommie though, managed to redo the bandage later at home and it seems to be holding.

I must say that seeing my husband (already in his pj’s after taking an early shower) rush out to the vet, was very sweet.  (not to worry…he stayed in the bakkie when we got out)  The vet was so sweet.  I honestly didn’t think he would be that soft and caring towards a hamster but he was. 

Quintus was in tears and even my ‘tough’ little Jason couldn’t handle it.  He walked away, crying.

When we got home, the little thing just slept in my chest for hours.  Felt so sorry for it.

Tonight before bedtime, Quintus said that he now believes the old people were right.  Friday the 13th is a bad day.

  2. Oh poop, that’s not good. We’ve been sick as well, once the colds have passed 3 out of the 5 of us came down with a gasto bug, that’s just so jikky!! But we’re on the mend again.

    Hope the hamster is better by now?

    • Poor Hammie is hiding and sleeping most of the time, so I don’t want to bother him too much.
      Gosh, I hope all the germs will leave you guys out now!

    Poor little Hammy. Hope he is feeling better.
    No running around in his little ball for a while. 🙂
    Hope the boys are also fine.
