This is absolutely crazy. I was standing at my counter, ready to take an anti inflammatory medication that I am taking for a month for bursitis. Noodle , who has just been diagnosed with pancreatitis, is taking an anti inflammatory.
The bottles are right next to each other, which I realize is not good. An old nurse habit is to check three times before you dispense a pill. I looked at my bottle, then I looked at Noodles. We are both on the same drug. Mine was almost free, his was
$32.00 from the Vet's dispensary. Noodle does have an account at CVS here and at Safeway in Port Townsend. I should have had the Vet just write him a script, and taken it to the drug store. It is a little embarrassing when the pharmacist calls," pick up for
Noodle Uchitelle", and I feel the need to explain that Noodle is a dog. I am not sure how I feel about both of us being on the same meds. It is true that I have given Noodle human attributes, but this medicine thing is a little scary. I hope that
he remembers that he is the dog in our relationship.
