Day 2


Went to visit Muffin again today. Had to take a bus to the vet lol. Lucky I stopped at the right stop. 
Anyway, they said they did the Royal Flush today cos she didn't poop much from the drip (through her nose). And even with that, not all the poop is out. #okaycan 
So continue the drip for another night to ease the rest of the poop out first. 
She really really wanted to scratch her face/neck. Imagine how uncomfortable she must be 😭😭😭
Oh ya the liver enzymes thing, they said should be constipation cause cos... Her poop really a lot. Thus the liver enzyme level elevation.
That cast looking thing on her paw... Is longer than her paw itself. So she can't walk properly. But it's where the IV fluids needle is at. So can't remove. Also has a painkiller patch on her back leg. 
The white cloths on her head holding the tube... On closer inspection, has stitches. Attached to her head. Omg my poor thing cat. 😭😭😭😭
"I hate you mum" 
Yes yes. I know. 
Asked the nurse about her before/After weight... And she was like "hmmm we weighed her this morning but not after the procedure. Let's weigh her now" πŸ˜‚
Before: 5.7kg 
After: 5.2kg
My cat is 10% poop. Or maybe more cos not completely out. 
Chin scratches.
Didn't know how to hold her with all those tubes, so I just stuck my hand in and petted/scratched/rubbed her lol. 
Oh and there were 2 rabbits in another cubicle called.... "Char shao" and "Shao rou". Char Siew and roast/crackling pork. #okaycan πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Her "bed".
They said I might be able to bring her home tmr. Hopefully!!! 
Oh nurse wanted to feed her, so she opened a can of prescription canned food for sensitive digestion cats (is this even the right term?) then Muffin sat up in her cubicle. Could see she was excited about the opening of a can.
Jeng jeng jeng.
When it was offered to her.... I could imagine her disdain. She refused to eat it. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ but seriously what kind of sensitive diet has grain in it? 
Will probably research and change her diet on my own. 
Took a bus back to amkhub to do a grocery run for some stuff, and to check out the AAS regarding the international driving license. Woot. They take your pic for free! Yay! Don't have pay to get some pics now woot.
Bought glass containers and a magnetic holder for my markers from tokutokuya. Hehehe quite cute eh. 
For all the overnight oats and yogurt πŸ™†πŸ™†πŸ™† 
Then off it was to ntuc. Then home. 
And there's work tmr. At 7.30am. Wtf kill me. Bye

Constipated cat 😞


Muffin's been having her usual constipation again, but got worse after the home reno cos we couldn't find her meds for a few days. 
So I brought her to the vet last Fri. Did an enema, gave 200ml fluids daily. On top of her lactulose and Cisapride. No poop. Or rather, one tiny piece.
And on Mon for the followup. Enema again (and 2 more doses at home for Tue and Wed), with fluids + meds. But seriously, still no poop. 😞😞😞
Poop, y u so stubborn???
Dropped her off at the vet today for the Royal Flush lolol. What kind of name is this πŸ˜‚ Anyway it's a procedure where they manually try to remove poop while the animal is under GA. How manually.... I need to check Google. But she did this before like... 2-3 years ago. Iirc, also in sept. πŸ˜’
"BRING ME HOME MAMA"
"Save me 😭😭😭"
Hope everything goes well! And pls pls pls don't let anything odd show up on the blood test like Thierry thanks. θ€ε¨˜ζ²‘ζœ‰ι’±,全部给你们用光了。
3pm: 
So the vet called around lunch to say that her liver values are a little on the high side. Increases the risk of pushing the liver to liver failure if GA is done. πŸ˜“πŸ˜“
What we can do now is to use another method which is to insert a tube down her nose to her digestive tract and run some fluids + meds to get the poop softened and poop it out. It should work within 2 days? If not, we have no choice but to proceed with the Royal Flush. 😣😣😣😣 means I can't get my cat back tonight
Or tmr night. 
Minimum. 😭😭😭😭
What if she misses me?? Will she poop? What if she doesn't? It's only a 50-50 chance of that working. But no choice cos can't do GA. They'll also give her some liver supps in the meantime.
Also not sure if the liver issue is due to her constipation or early liver problems. πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯ 
Just... Kill me already
7.45pm: 
Waiting at the vet's to see Muffin but er been waiting for like 15 mins alr. Apparently the hospital nurse is busy. Okay can. Wait lor. 😣😣😣
Time check: 10pm
Brought a blanket and this Mickey she sleeps with to visit just now. Waited quite a while just to see her cos the nurse was teaching someone how to do some stuff on their own at home for the rabbit. 
My poor baby 😭😭😭😭
Her "ward". 😞😞😞😞


She kind of refused to look at sis and I. 😭😭😭😭
Until we started stroking her. Sigh. Running 2 tubes into her, with the tube in her nose and the IV fluids. Please poop soon!!!! πŸ’©πŸ’©πŸ’©
Then when she finally turned.... πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”

Cannot imagine how bad she feels right now. 😭😭😭😭 there's like 2 staples on her forehead to keep the tube in her nose in place I guess? 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 

Sigh. Okay bye. Need to go be depressed.

Watermelon Dog

πŸ‘‹ watermelon dog! πŸ‰πŸΆ
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I seriously think watermelon designed stuff are THE CUTEST. 
Cake πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…


Had to pause my hair drying cos this 16 year old boss demanded to be fed. πŸ˜’ pawed my back then sat down and looked at me like that. Not like he doesn't have access to food. And must hand feed! 😰😰😰 I should be happy he still does this, right?

Sundays


Lunch out with bf! Made our way to Chinatown to run errands.
Aims today at Chinatown:
  • Visit pharmacy that someone told me about to get the subQ stuff for Thierry. 
  • Go to AAS to get my driving license converted to the International Driving License
  • Swanston for toiletries


$11+ worth of ngoh hiang. Omg so expensive 😱😱😱
So..... The pharmacy's closed every 3rd Sunday of the month. Guess which Sunday is it today? 
Walked over to Swanston to get toiletries then lugged all the stuff to Pearl's Centre on search of AAS. 
Guess which building is in the midst of getting torn down? πŸ˜’ #okaycan 
Walked back to the car to put down the stuff then went off to China Sq to look at the flea instead. Didn't buy anything
Oh. We had this somewhere in between walking lol. When you have free rein on the amount of gula melaka...
And I think I got a little heatstroke. Felt lightheaded, dizzy, nauseated. Threw up when we got home then slept all the way till almost dinner time. 
So we only got 1/3 things done at Chinatown. πŸ˜’ need to come back againnnnnn. Dammit. 
So.... Dinner. 
Tried this XXL platter at Chops Grill & Sides. It said 6-8pax on the menu πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ we went with Bro n pw, so... Obviously we couldn't finish it. Plus they ran out of ribeye, so they replaced it with sirloin and refunded me like $3. And after we were almost done struggling with the meal, they served us popcorn chicken πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ seriously 
Dabao-ed the wedges and popcorn chicken.

Went to the park after near Macs to er... Catch pokemon πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜… no crap there so we adjoined to Bishan Park to hunt for Onix. Hahahahahaha. There were... A lot. 
Lol they weren't kidding when they said Bishan Park is an Onix nest. 
BUT THEY'RE ACTUALLY VERY FAR APART????!!! Walked like mad. 😠😠😠😠
Happiness is... Cat who comes over for cuddles.
And cat in my lap 😍

F1! 🏁


Went to the b2k sale at the very last min today after I sent Grandpa to the Cc for his meeting. Picked bf and Cobie up, then off we went for the sale! Sorry Mango, didn't bring you along 😱😱😱 
Hauled like $88 worth of treats for both the dogs and cats. And milk for Thierry. πŸ˜‚ goodbye money, it was nice having you.

Then after a short nap at home (okay not very short. I think I slept most of the afternoon), sent bf home, came back to shower and off to meet Sis at Raffles City! 
Apparently I have a favorite color πŸ™Š other than teal, I guess it's maroon/wine.

Had Sushi Tei for dinner. Sis said "we shouldn't go overboard with the orders again this time" please. Don't know who's the one who over-ordered. Bill came up to $80+ again πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’ 

Chanced upon this wooden figurine shop on the same floor... Mistake!!! Ended up buying handmade leather keychains πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜… $28 each! But oh so cute. Didn't get the pom though. Sheltie for me, husky for bf. Sis bought like 3 cats. Who really looked like our 3, but so expensive!!!!
Tickets!
First time watching it, ever. I don't even follow it on TV, but I guess the atmosphere was really good? Needed a crash course on the workings of F1 and sis was like "can you please don't say 'crash course'?!" but eh.... Then what?

Actually more like going to F1 for the concert πŸ™Š hello Bastille!!! The sound system was really πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’― and the screens were really huge. Plus the videographer was really good at catching the right angles? I sound so technical πŸ˜‚ but that's the truth. The lead singer's voice was really good too! Sorry I'm not crazy enough about them to know everything πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

Then it was on to our seats! 
Oh sis tried to find the Raikonnen shirt but sold out!! She was quite sad. But $80 (there were others going for $130) for a top.... Madness. 
Our view was really good! Right in front of the screen. Clear commentary. Sis was telling me about the msia tracks and differences etc. Oh and a car crashed into the barricades after passing us on one of the qualifiers. Visible from our seats! 😱 lucky it wasn't very serious
#okaycan
Queen + Adam Lambert after the qualifiers.

We couldn't event get into the fanzone/concert area. Stood so far from the stage but okay la, it was pretty good. Amazed by how old the Queen members are and still going strong. Brian May and Roger Taylor πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’―
Adam Lambert though... Was a little too much. He sounded so chirpy that I think he fits in those children TV shows like Hi5? Cannot take it
Like sis said.... "Why is he so campy now?"
Brian May! 

His guitar solo 😍😍 also, he sang a solo (omg cannot rmb title. Will check with sis). πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ 
Roger Taylor also did a solo! They are amazingggggg. 
I wonder what I'd be doing at their age lolol.
Overall, this was one fun experience. Esp with sis next to me trying to explain the racing jargon πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Dozer and Mango!
Anyway, my keychains!!! 
Super cute and actually look like Dozer and Mango. My heart cannot take it. Now to actually use it........
