Is there anything worse than waiting?
Oh sure, as an adult you wait patiently because that is how you are brought up to conform to society. As a child, you “can’t wait” for the last day of school, Christmas vacation,summer…you catch my drift?
Zosia had her second blood work done today and the waiting is rough.It brings my mind back to me waiting for various things throughout my life to date.The mind just keeps going, thinking of all possible scenarios and you wonder about the prayers you sent up.
I know no one ever said it would be easy.
Sometimes I wish they would have.
I went to the Doctor this morning for my physical.I have been on the fit bit zip side Halloween 2014,and today, when I stood on the scale, I am down a total of 40 lbs since then-down 10 since March.If that doesn’t give testimony to the viability of the fit bit zip, I don’t know what does.
I looked at today as the fall tune-up for the auto season for the winter. I got my blood work done and we’ll see if hopefully,all numbers for me will be good.With that out-of-the-way, all is left is Zush and taking her in Thursday afternoon for her blood work second set. Please keep the prayers and good puppy mojo going for our girl.
It is almost the end of my work day.
I will be happy to get home to my family.
The principal vet called me this morning here.We are going to rerun Zush’s blood work in a week,and in the meantime I am keeping an eagle eye on her, plus her usual love from me. I am bombarding heaven with prayers.
Always, it’s good to get home to those who love you.
The vet called me this morning with the results of Zusher’s blood work.
The good news is she isn’t diabetic-hah something I could deal with.
Liver enzymes are elevated, calcium is elevated, she may have anal sac cancer and the vet just kept throwing things at me on the phone here at work between my tears.
Prayer and good mojo desperately needed.
When you are accustomed to sleeping from 9:30 PM to 5:00 AM, and you get up a few times during the night, you are used to operating through the day on a set amount of hours.
Today, I got up earlier than usual, worked a little overtime,and then participated in a marketing study that was done at 9:30PM.I tried not to be over caffeinated during the day, but I do confess that I knew I’d have to be responsive around people at an hour when I’d normally be asleep, well, I anticipated being awake and not embarrassing myself.
I actually am going in to work tomorrow, as they are having a Red Cross bloodmobile and I am scheduled to make a donation of blood.Our friends, Juls and Tim, are due down to spend the weekend with us.I am praying that we all can hang out together and, dogs included, just relax,
Here’s hoping that your Friday finds you anticipating the weekend and your weekend is enjoyable.
When we last left our heroine, Zush, she was bleeding from a ruptured cyst located in her back left paw. When we cleaned up her blood from her leg,it just looked soggy, as though she got wet swimming in the bay.
I brought her into our new vet down here at Undisclosed. As a fur mom, it is always comforting to have a diagnosis confirmed. The new vet had said that we could have it off in Philadelphia. I said no, I’d like it done here.It is possible to monitor her and keep her leg clean and tape it up and once we are established here, I could book her date and this way she’d be home with me.
I think Kasia knows something is up with her sister and is just a wee bit kinder to her.I am sure that Zush would be feeling better with that cyst off. I just have to work some prayers that my girl will have no problem with her anesthesia.
Hold a good thought for her, ok? Thanks.
Looking at Zusher’s rear paw tonight. She has a large benign growth on it and it really hadn’t been slowing her down.
All of a sudden, something made me look at it tonight and it was like it got irritated or rubbed or she was getting at it.The fur around the area is bloody.
Going to try to get in to out new vet tomorrow morning to see what they can do to make her comfortable,
Hold prayers and or good thoughts for my girl, so she’ll be able to be made comfortable.
I gave two pints of blood yesterday during the blood drive at the office.
We had gone out to dinner and Jim had ordered himself pizza.
There was a filet of sirloin on the menu and my dragging butt, looking for some iron to replace some red blood cells, jumped on it.So here I am, 5 hours later, just awake after a nap where I was sated in red meat.
Fortunately, I have some clothes that I had the foresight to put in the washer before I fell asleep. Now I just have to finish while they are in the drier,so tomorrow, there will be another day, another full schedule. but I will have a little wiggle room.
We’ll see what tomorrow brings.
For giving the gift of life, that is, giving blood, my employer offers 4 hours free time in appreciation.
Translation: it’s Friday, I’m in the office to give blood, and leave at 12:30, without losing comp or vacation time.It’s what I have to do to keep my streak of Friday time going, and if I have to give blood, well, so be it.
Hope you have a good weekend. Jim is left packing up the pups and car since I am in the office and once he comes in town to pick me up?
Let the roadshow commence!
