QUIET...

Sorry it's quiet here. Lola has injured herself quite badly trying to jump up from the garden, while the steps that I fell through were finally being replaced. Bizarrely it was the top step that I fell through and the very same top step that she jumped through, which hurt her spine and hind legs. I had to call out the emergency vet at midnight on Saturday night who gave her an injection (and almost got her expensively manicured hand bitten off). Now I have to keep Lola in, make sure she rests and give her painkillers, which seem to help, but we're not out of the woods yet (why do people use that expression?) I might still have to take her to the vet for more tests under sedation (she's more tiger than moggy) - she may have damaged the nerves that enable her to perform daily necessary functions if you know what I mean. And that would not be good.

oooooooooh i am so sorry!!!! what terrible news. poor lola. oh i really hope nothing is damaged!!! i'll be thinking of her.

oh and this what i found re: the expression

"Out of difficulties, danger or trouble, as in We're through the worst of the recession--we're out of the woods now, or That pneumonia was serious, but Charles is finally out of the woods. This expression, alluding to having been lost in a forest, dates from Roman times; it was first recorded in English in 1792. The British usage is out of the wood."

ohhhhhhhhh noooooooooo dare I say your apartment is FREAKING DOOMED?? jay-sus. Methinks the best thing to do here is quick turn it into a reality tv series -- make a gazillion and move to a less treacherous abode . .

joking of course-- but OH I am so sorry for you and Lola--

Bisous, bp

oh no, poor lola! i hope everything mends quickly!

Lola Is Beauty said...

thanks everyone! I will give Lola your wishes.

- and BP you are so right, this place may be trying to kill me - and I didn't even mention that a 3 inch spike in the garden also went through the sole of my foot. Could the reality show have my flat being rented out to really responsible, tidy tenants and then have Lola and I moving to a (found by and paid for by production co) spacious apt in Paris with a little courtyard garden?...
