Ace, Jefe, and I spent the better part of the day at the vet ED with Ace’s favorite Aunties, who were visiting from the frontier of San Mateo. After hours of turmoil, which included me being unable to spell “bloody diarrhea,” Ace emerged victorious. She’s got a camel hump of subcutaneous liquid to show for her severe parasite infestation, which caused horrible side effects, the least gross of which was dehydration.
I learned a few things today: 1) Ace is an amazingly tough and calm little spirit, and I am beyond lucky to have her, 2) The same goes for Jefe, and 3) Good friends can make any situation better. For realz.
