some days you just know are going to be a challenge before they are barely started. PMS, a very sore back, a slightly sore ankle and not a drop of bleach or milk in the house. i should have gone to the store yesterday afternoon, but i was too tired and now this morning, too tired sounds a heck of alot of better than today. oh well, i can fix 4 of of the 5 things that are bugging me with tylenol and simply driving down to safeway. i guess i won't complain too much cuz that is like an 80% improvement over this particular moment i guess.
where did the sunshine go? everyone told me it was going to be sunny all weekend. well my weekend ain't over yet until i go back to work tomorrow so the sunshine still oughta be here right now!
cole had me up twice last night. he was sleeping in front of the dog room door again so rocky and bill both snuck out past him but wouldn't come back in while he laid there and stared at them. i had to get up and stand in front of cole so they would come back in the door. rocky is a bit of a worry wart goof, but bill knows his way around the world pretty good. i know for sure that cole while laying there so quietly, was sending out messages that said they couldn't come in and bugger on off. he is such a toad.
dexter, michael, and jess are still on the watching list. jess while a little bit better is just not throwing off her lastest cold. her eye is still bad and yesterday i added drops before the ointment to see if flushing the eye is more effective at getting to all the inflamed surfaces in there. gosh she is a worry right now. she is on antibiotics, antivirals, autoimmune boosters and still not making a whole lot of progress. this is starting to remind me of shades of hester's and lola's final battles and this worries me even more. and jess has been fighting her ill health for more than 4 years, she is going to get tired of fighting it one day too. this sucks.
dexter had a great day yesterday. several walks, lot's of sticks, and some swims. at one point i saw him toddling down the hill after his ball. he had perogies twice for a snack plus his full canned lunch and whatever everyone else fed him around here yesterday too. he slept alot when he wasn't eating or having fun but he is still comfortable i think at least he feels good enough to do the things he loves.
michael has started with this gross diarrhea thing. i thought it was dexter but nicole saw yesterday it was mike. it is pretty foul. so i started him on flagyl just in case it helps. but i suspect it is a bigger problem then that. his stiffness and twisted arthritis is making it harder and harder for him to walk. he pretty much just gets up to go outside or to switch from one bed to the next. very rarely does he guard the food bowl anymore, altho sometimes he still does just in case we forget. another couple of weeks, a month maybe? we still have room to move up his meds as needed so we will see how he feels with a new increase, hopefully well enough to hang around and be a troll some more.
ok...better go and get dressed and buy the bleach cuz ain't no cleaning happening til it gets here.
