5th Birthday and my injury!!

Hiya all,

I know you were expectin' another post about my hollingday ... but my Birthday kinda came up in the meantime.

I also managed to somehow injure myself a couple of days earlier. 

Saturday I turned 5 and we also had an "open inspection" of our house so mum planned to make me "Birthday Burgers" for dinner. Get a load of these!!!

Aren't they a "work of art" !!! Drool worthy!

Let me at em' mum!! (Even though I'm in pain)

OMD you are a GREAT CHEF mum!!

I ate every last crumb and all the tomato too.

**** SOOOOOooooooo Goooooooood ***

Now for my medical update ... I'll pass you onto ma for the info...


Hi - Rubie's mum here. Rubie started showing signs that something was a little wrong last Tues/Wed. She was having trouble bending her head down to retrieve food from the floor. (That's why her Birthday Burgers were served on our step) She also stopped going up and down our steps, stopped jumping on the couch/chairs/bed and when she did use the steps she walked them (instead of bounding) and gave little under breath grunts at the same time. We assumed she had pulled a muscle or strained something and was watching her over a few days (while lifting her a lot) to see if she was getting worse or better. We got her to the V-E-T this morning and he gave her a good exam and also concluded that she may have a soft tissue strain in the neck, shoulders or spine. Just to be sure he has taken her blood and will do a number of tests to check she is healthy. Some auto-immune disorders can present with these types of symptoms too. So she has tablet anti-inflammatories for the next four days and has been told to have gentle exercise only. We will get the outcome of her blood work tomorrow - and hope that it is all clear.
