Blue is very ill. She had an endoscopy yesterday after x-rays revealed nothing. She's either got a large stomach ulcer that is threatening to burst or an ulcerated tumor. The vet managed to get some samples of her stomach & they've been sent off for urgent testing. She has been kept in as she is no longer eating & they need to get her strength up to give her a chance of recovery.
As if that weren't enough I'm at home alone, as DH has had to go to an important meeting, nursing recently spayed kittens & a depressed Annie who is missing Blue. I opened the post to find a letter from the insurance company who have covered DD's skiing trip & they mention 'a problem which occurred whilst on holiday' but no mention of what has happened!
A few phone calls later & I've discovered that she twisted her knee whilst skiing on the 3rd of 6 days skiing. She visited outpatients but is ok. She'll be absolutely gutted. Not only has she missed half the skiing but she won't be able to swim or play football for a while either.
I don't ever want to receive a letter like that again.
It's unbelievable isn't it.
The letter read:
"We write to advise that we have been contacted by International Medical Rescue who assisted your daughter recently in connection with a problem which occurred whilst on holiday. To enable us to give this matter consideration on her behalf, please arrange to complete the attached claim form...."
I found out from the insurance company employee that she hurt herself on Tuesday & was taken to an outpatients department. I don't know if she just sprained it mildly & was skiing again the next day or if she has a bad sprain & will be on crutches for the next 6 weeks. The school knew nothing about it & I was told that she's home tomorrow night so find out then!
I'm furious but trying to stay calm until I know exactly what's wrong with her.
