Struggling with a Sick Pup

As you know, change has always been a sort of trigger for me,  it's something I've worked on with good success but it is my carefully planned routine keeps me moving forward on my healthy path.  Since getting the dog, I have been struggling more than I care to admit.  Add to that the fact that Tally has been sick and I'm really out of sorts.  

Tally spent the overnight Monday and early morning hours Tuesday with vomiting and diarrhea.  I spent it soothing her and cleaning up mess after mess after mess.  She had to spend 4 hours at the Vet yesterday getting IV fluids.  She's resting now and I'm trying to remain calm and collected so that she won't get nervous from my vibes. 

The change in routine has thrown a small kink in my healthy eating but is the stress snacking has really set me back.  Having a sick pet is awful, I never realized.  I can't even imagine having a sick child.  I'm going to work through this the best I can and get Tally back up to full speed so we can be back out there walking and running and playing.  I may not be around too much until we're both feeling better.  Until then, your positive vibes are most appreciated.

Enjoy the day!
