A Bad Night

Ailz was taken ill last night and was in terrible pain, so we got her wrapped up in her fur coat and into Joe's car and rushed her to the doctor's. He said magic words and gave her a stemetil injection to stop her being sick (so she could keep down her painkillers) and we came home and she was sick immediately and afterwards began to get better.

This morning she's feeling a bit rough (obviously) but the pain is gone.

So what was it? She described the pain as like having toothache under the ribs. The likeliest diagnosis is an inflamed gall bladder, the second likeliest is plain, old-fashioned food poisoning. Whichever it was, we suspect that the lamb casserole she ate for tea had something to do with it.
