Funguses in the ear.
Even though the sun shone while we were out walking this morning it still was rather cold. As usual I had brought my mosquito hat with me but I didn´t have to wear it even once 🙂 I have noticed the decreasing amount of flies these last days (except for when I mowed my lawn yesterday afternoon. I think they all might have moved to my garden 🙂 ) and I do hope this is the end of the fly season now. Well not completely, the moose and deer flies will soon start their season but they are usually very few, though extremely unpleasant.
We arrived rather early at the vet and we hadn´t even sat down for more that five minutes when a young and rather new vet helped us. He looked in to Novas ear, took a small sample of what she had in her ear and told me she has a fungus infection in there. We talked and I could feel that he sort of wanted my approval of the cure he wanted to give her (it isn´t easy to be a new vet in a rural area 🙂 🙂 ) So I told him that he was the one that knew what he was talking about and that we should do as he thought was best.
So now she´s on antibiotics and cortisone. He told me that the cortisone will make her hungry and that she will most likely try to eat as much as possible. Well that´s nothing new, she was starved most all the time when she grew up with those drug addicts so she does that anyway. I can see that she already is feeling much better so lets hope it will conyinue that way after this treatment as well.
The weather forecasts says it will rain some today as well but after that we´ll have a period with warmer and sunnier weather again. So no painting today but I´ll start again tomorrow. I haven´t cut down those lilacs by the entrance yet either so perhaps I´ll do that today. They are great places for flies to hide during the day and then they can get out to annoy me and my dogs as soon as we show our faces in the garden 🙂 🙂 🙂
I´m still sort of surprised about what happened in Norway. After all they were occupied by Nazi Germany so they should sort of be immune against right wing extremism. I wouldn´t have been that surprised if it had happened here in Sweden though. We never participated in WW2 and our history before and during that period is rather shameful to be honest. Our politicians kept us out of the war but in ways that most probably prolonged the war for quite some time.
We have never really dealt with our past and with time we sort of have made a much better picture of us than we deserve and that has been a good breeding ground for nazis I´m afraid. I can try to tell You some of this if You would like.
Well It is time for breakfast and after that a short nap I think. Unless I cut those lilacs down I´ll do nothing special today. Perhaps I watch a dvd or two and perhaps I´ll do some crosswords but that´s it. This will be a perfect summer vacation day 🙂 Have a great day!
