Muffin is doing GREAT and has recovered nicely from the allergic reaction to her vaccination's.
She once again is a very happy camper.
I, Lily Belle, on the other hand yesterday, had to go visit
Sitting with Mommy in the waiting room
Mommy said we should read this book while we were waiting. The book made Mommy cry.
Hey, did I hear my name being called?
So Dr. O'Sullivan (aka Mr. Handsome) took a look at it and did his very best to trim it. He said that if it continues to be a problem then to bring me back. He would have to then sedate me and pull the entire nail off. Mommy was not thrilled with hearing that and come to think of it, neither was I!! So, I'm going to try and be really good so that what's left of it remains intact.
Now on to Grandpa Bob. His 89 years of life is really taking a toll on him. He has pneumonia now and is on a very strong antibiotic. His leg's swelled up the other day with fluid from the congestive heart failure. They have increased his water pill medication hoping that will clear the fluid. He has to keep his leg's elevated as much as possible. We've got our paws crossed that he won't have to go back into the hospital. We think that this is going to be the new normal for him as his heart will never get any younger. From what we understand, there really is no way to stop this from happening. At least he still has a ton of LOVE left in his heart!!
The Rehab Facility is not ready to let him come home yet as he still has a way to go with therapy. He's not too happy about that. He now requires someone to be with him 27/7 for his own safety. (We kind of figured that out already - duh!) We have noticed that he is extremely forgetful. Since January, with all this stuff that has happened to him, his forgetfulness has gotten worse. He is starting to get forgetful on everyday, routine things. We don't know if is caused by the new seizure medication he is on. We have been trying to reach the Neurologist so we can discuss this with him, but Mommy said Florida health care SUCKS! She has called and left a message for him every day and has not received a phone call back yet. Sure ain't NY!! Mommy said she may have to take a drive down to the Dr's office and just sit there until she can get some answers. His forgetfulness is part of the reason he sometimes doesn't do so well in therapy. If he can't remember to use his walker, or put on his shoes, or slow down, it's a BIG problem.
His therapist is going to come over to our house on Monday morning to do a home evaluation. We're excited because Grandpa gets to come too!! It will be a short visit, but at least Grandpa is allowed to come home for an hour. Miss Sally will tell Mommy what and IF any modifications need to be made to the house in order for Grandpa to be safe. At least it is a start in the right direction. Mommy knows tho that when he comes home, all this safety stuff is gonna fly right out the window. Grandpa won't listen or follow the rules (or remember) just like before. We'll be sure to put in our 2 cents worth tho once she arrives!
Mommy has been working on doing Grandpa's taxes the past few days which is a joke. He can't remember and she has no clue. What a pair!
Tonight Mommy and Daddy are going to go have dinner with Grandpa and play some cards. Grandpa is pretty lonely so "Team Florida" is going to cheer him up. Just when I thought Mommy was gonna stick around for a while, she's getting ready to head right back out.
Hopefully Muffin and I can visit Grandpa this weekend. It's way too busy there during the week for us little one's. When I went in last weekend I barked and barked and barked at everyone and at every thing. Mommy was pretty annoyed with my big mouth. Maybe she'll just take Muffin. She's much quieter and doesn't talk as much as me.
