The answer to the question is Ellison. She has been sick for the past couple of weeks with a runny nose and cough. She never ran a fever, so I guessed she had the sniffles. Two days ago I came home from work and the poor thing was so congested and hoarse, she couldn't even cry sound. I felt terrible, so yesterday we hauled her off to the doctor.
Fortunately, she doesn't have any type of infection, but he gave her a prescription for the congestion stuff. He also told us to give her a few cold things like popsicles. So last night, Kam got popsicles and she greedily took the red popsicle. We supervised her while she ate the popsicle.
During the night, we were cleaning the house and Ellison was following us around. I was in the guest bedroom cleaning and she grabbed a vase and dropped it on the floor, breaking it. I quickly looked her over, and she looked fine to me. Well, a few minutes later, I saw little specks of red all over the carpet. I called Kam asking him to clean the red popsicle drips Ellison had spread and went into the kitchen...where Ellison followed me.
I was loading dishes into the dishwasher, and let Ellison climb up on the door and play. I noticed bloody water all over the dishwasher and then noticed Ellison's cut little foot and realized Kam wasn't cleaning up red popsicle, but blood. Needless to say Ellison is feeling much better and causing trouble just like before she was sick!
