Tessa has osteoarthritis, and they say she's had it for a while. So why, I asked, did she rocket up and down the stairs and love to play, and why did it get so bad so suddenly? They couldn't answer the first bit, but apparently it's been aggravated by her either jumping off something too high, or getting into a fight. I have pain-killers for her and some glucosamine sprinkles for her food, though I already give her green-lipped mussel pills. She is not happy. She's curled up on a chair with Claudia cuddled up comfortingly to her, when she'd normally be in here demanding attention. I suppose that's good in one way since they said to make her rest for 3-4 days and I have no idea how to do that.
If she hasn't improved in a week or so, I have to take her in for x-rays.
The hardware guy brought my work PC back today, but the motherboard still can't recognise the RAID. They unplugged one disc though so at least I have all my data back. However the virus checking software has been dorked, I can't run Outlook due to various bizarre error messages, and the PC doesn't show the internet connection under 'network connections', which may be the same problem. It's hard to test this though since the office's ISP was down all day. It's a step in the right direction though.
Tessa and PC-ness
