Day 60 - Oh Boy Oh Boy Oh Boy!
Elsie's temperature is down this evening: only 98.5 (two full degrees below what her evening temps have been all week, and it's the first time she's dipped below 99).
She didn't eat lunch or dinner today either.
I think we're having pups before the weekend is over.
I think I'm sleeping on the couch (or kitchen floor) by the whelping box tonight.
I think I'm setting up our whelping station, too. Like, now.
I think we'll be watching Elsie VERY closely from here on out (even more closely than we've been).
Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy.
Can you feel the knot in my stomach?
But we're also trying to relax (we don't want Elsie to pick up on our emotions). We just need to stay focused and calm and soothing for her (which we are and will).
If we're calm, she will be, too. DH and I are both very good in crisis -- very calm and methodical. I tend to crash afterward.
So I'm in "stay calm and focused" mode. :o) But I still have a knot in my stomach. Hopefully Elsie won't pick up on that.
Stay tuned. :o)
'Til next time,
