It so sad to see her in pain, yet she can’t tell me where it hurts. She’ll hold her leg up and hop along, but when I feel her leg for an injury, she doesn’t flinch. Now when I start to help her up by reaching under her tummy, she yelps.
What’s a momma to do? I called the vet back again, and rescheduled her this afternoon. Have you ever experienced this? Have your kids ever had a fever/coughing/crud for a day or two, then when you get to the doctor’s office, they are cured? On one hand, I don’t want to look like an over panicked parent who can’t deal with a little sickness or pain. Yet on the other hand, I don’t want my child to endure unnecessary pain due to me being lax. I guess it is better to be foolish in loving too much, than to be foolish letting someone you love suffer because of pride.
