Lily Belle here. Im outta bed long enough to give everyone an update on my health.
Thing's are still not going so well. I'm still on the Tramadol and Prednisone and I still am feeling lousy. I even look pathetic. Hard to believe right?
I am not sprinting to the door when someone comes by. Like yesterday, our neighbor had to escort Grandpa Bob home because he snuck out of the house and went to her yard to pick grapefruit from her tree. The he fell flat on his face! She was watching him from her kitchen window (good thing) and ran outside to help him. Imagine the surprise on Mommys face when our neighbor walked in the house with Grandpa. Grandpa just poo-poo's the situation. Poor Mommy, she's got her hands filled with me and MY issues and doesn't need yet another thing to worry about.
I'm just not myself these days and it's weighing heavily on Mommy and Daddys heart. If everyone only knew what was wrong with me, we would all feel better. Unfortunately I can't voice my opinion to anyone (cuz remember, I'm a D-O-G.)
I have a good appetite and I'm pooping and peeing just fine. My back end is no longer shaking. When Mommy touches me, I don't cry or shiver in pain. I will NOT hop up the step into the house. It's not a full step, but more of a little lip about 2 inches tall. I will stand there until someone picks me up over the hump.
I will only lay on the floor or in my doggie bed when everyone is busy doing other things. Hey, someone other than me has to do the housework around here and cook! Becides, I only know how to prepare kibble. So Mommy pulled out the crock pot and is making yummy beef stew for the weekend. I know that if Muffin and I play our cards right, we'll get some of the beef and carrots.
Speaking of Muffin, she has been such a good little sister and keeps a close eye on me.
Don't let her droopy eyes fool ya! She really is concerned.
Pending no emergency changes over the weekend, Mommy will call and talk to the handsome Dr. O'Sullivan next week. He wants me to stay on the med's for at least a week before proceeding with any more tests.
Mommy and Daddy went out this morning to our local indoor Flea Market. They went to buy some "window clings" to put on the sliding door. They have some really beautiful ones and since Mommy loves hummingbird's and lily's that is the design she picked. It's a large design and should fit nicely on the door. Then so I don't bump into the door ever again, they bought a whole bunch of little ones to put across the bottom of the glass. We don't know how it is going to look when done, but safety is the main concern.
When clinging to the window, it looks like etched glass.
While at the Flea Market, Mommy also bought some beautiful tomato's and some lettuce. However, Mommy didn't buy ANY flea's at the market ~ Whew! It's a great place to shop for produce and other types of stuff and or junk. Here, let me show you...
Daddy is checking out the ol'e time country music CD's. And yes, he has a jacket on. Our temps dropped 20 degrees within an hour yesterday. This morning it was 39F outside.
It's a solar powered Hula Dancer ~ Way too cute the way she shakes her arms and hips!
OK, time to take another nap now. Hopefully many naps will do the trick!
Thank you everyone for your love and support! Please keep the POTP coming, I need it.
P.S. Happy Birthday to my sweet little man Newby. I wish I was there to give you a BIG kiss.
