Warning for people with dogs....

Remember how I told you a lot happened on Monday? Well one of my lovely dogs was crying. I went to look for her. I found her in the baby's room. With a big pile of loose, bloody stool - on my new carpet! I do care more about the dog but man.....why on the carpet? I could not get into the vet until about 7 hours later. Turns out she has bacteria in her bowels along with a parasite. Then the vet proceeds to tell me that it can be transmitted to me. Just what a prego wants to hear. She may have a parasite. It was after hours so I had to call the on-call doc (just happened to be me doc). No major worries, even if I had it, it would stay in the intestines - yuck!



Dog is on meds and feels better now. I asked how she got it. Could be from soil (she likes to eat dirt) or from puddles of rain water (I let my dogs drink from puddles everyday on walks). SO PLEASE DO NOT LET YOUR DOGS DRINK FROM PUDDLES. Unless you want to clean up nastiness.



I also called and got my glucose test results and I passed with flying colors! My score was 82 and they want it under 140. Yahoo!!!



I am going out of town again in about 2 minutes. So I leave you with some nursery pics. Finishing the crib makes it seem so real. Have a great weekend!

Glad you passed the glucose, wonder why you were so convinced you would fail since you ACED it! Way to go.

Betadine takes of dry and fresh stains of blood well, you could give it a try! Hope the li'l doggie gets better!

I'm happy that your pup has been checked right away! My cousin's dog died due to the same cause cos they weren't able to bring her to the vet right away... =(

Anyway, I'm glad you're okay and that your glucose level's in control! :D Way to go!!! The nursery is totally awesome ! Makes me miss my childhood days haha!

Oh I hate that when a dog leaves a surprise for me or my hubby to clean up, especially on new carpet. That really sucks. Love the nursery!! It is super cute. You are much further along with the nursery then me. I am jealous. Are you already putting your classroom back together? I know my neighbor is putting hers back together but that is because we start school on the 9th.
