Quite a Scare

Yesterday C. was at the Masters so Vivi and I spent the morning at home lounging around (and the afternoon shopping, but I digress).
She was right under me the entire morning, no matter what I was doing.  However, around 11 I realized she wasn’t at my feet.  I went to the front door and there laying on the rug was Vivi chewing on one of my prescription medicine bottles….and she had broken the childproof seal and there were PILLS EVERYWHERE.

I have three prescriptions right now–two very strong pain killers and a strong antibiotic.  I had no idea what the bottle was (she had chewed the label off) or how many she had eaten.

I freaked the ‘f out.

I started scooping the pills up and I noticed on the side of one it said “Levaquin”–thank God, at least it was the antibiotic.  Then I counted the leftover pills and figured out she had not eaten any (I kept going over it and over it in my head just to be sure).  My hands were shaking.

I mean, what if she had eaten even a few of my 410mg Fioricet? We probably wouldn’t have made it to the vet in time.  I started crying and couldn’t stop.  I really don’t know what I’d do without my little puppy.  And I couldn’t call C. because the Masters won’t let you have cell phones at the tournament.  So, in my pajamas, we went to my parents’ house where I cried some more and kept an eagle eye on Vivi to make sure that in the off chance she even licked any of my pills that she was okay.

I so would not win the Mother of the Year award, that’s for sure.


My baby girl, apparently fine because as soon as I took this picture she attacked poor Roxie.

    Oh, no! I would have reacted the same. I am very protective of Puppy.

    Oh my goodness, how scary! Glad Vivi is doing well.

    And thanks for the well wishes on St. Louis. Nick left this morning (sniff, sniff) so it is all set in motion now. My mom is good and joked that she’ll take a plane ticket to St. Louis for every birthday/Christmas/mother’s day for the next 3 – 5 years!

    Oh my gosh I would have been hesterical too! I remind Josh every morning before I leave for work to make sure our small dog is in the house and the door is locked and shut tight so he cant get out somehow… isn’t it amazing how much pup’s kind of just add to your life?
    I will totally let y’all know come Friday what the ultrasound said! :o)

    I just saw on Randall’s site that you are a sorority sister too! Which one? I’m an alumnae of Gamma Phi Beta.
