i had easter dinner with my son's to be inlaws on saturday and had a chance to meet ang's extended family...really nice people. and yesterday another easter dinner with my family while on my dinner break from work. that was just so much fun, i really enjoy our family dinners. my kids and their partners are all coming to the pub night (eric's birthday is on the 17th, so i told them it was his birthday dinner...or at least the only one he was going to get from his mom)...not sure about my ex brian..he has broken his right wrist (i always thought hockey was dangerous esp for the "mature") he is self conscious about trying to eat with his left hand...i said i would feed him but he just gave me "the look." so i am holding his ticket while he ponders...animal rescue pubnight..not so interesting...dinner with his family, hmmm..that is something good...independently eating pasta in public without any help from me...now that's something to cause worry.
anyway i get his whole reluctance thing...breaking bones and trying to do normal things is not much fun.
the easter bunny came to saints and left a basket of bath and chocolate goodies for me on my bathroom sink. the note said it was from the crippled crew but i know this is not true cuz they would have eaten the chocolate before they gave it to me.
soooo...thank you easter bunny, after a difficult week that was a real special treat!
the next couple of weeks should be easier..i have a few extra days off and then a weeks holidays to catch up on things.
betsy is doing ok with her tube feed, not sure if i did the right thing or not. if she gets better, i guess i did and if she doesn't then i screwed up again. at least she is getting the nutrition she needs to get better if she can and without the trauma of force feeding her. the tubefeed is gentle and she just quietly lays by the fire while we put the feed in ever so very slowly. she doesn't like it if we go too fast.
shilo had a peaceful passing...she was only 12 yrs old. i never did figure her out...was she just deeply hopeless or was she hiding something deadly like cancer...it is hard not knowing. but i made that choice not to go looking to find out because i felt she truly just wanted to be free. i do hope it wasn't just being here with me.
maybe when my time comes, all of these guys will finally tell me what i couldn't always see.
i held apollo's insulin last night..he hasn't eaten in 24 hours and i just didn't dare to give it to him in case his bloodsugars bottomed out. he will have to go to the vet today again...and i am not sure if regulating him is just a hopeless cause. when do i stop trying fpr him? i don't know the answer to that one either.
unlike maybe shilo, he is ok with where he is...esp. since i moved him back into the medical room which he likes alot better.
even on stat holidays when my extra wages are a really nice thing...i a worry about not being here in case he needs me.
apollo can you please try to get your bloodsugars within a managable range? use visualization...blood sugar=8.
oh and the goat with the broken leg will have his orthopedic surgery today...the vet will also neuter him so he will be all ready to come to saints, maybe tonight...sheila said she could get him for me cuz i am working...or maybe tomorrow..i am off and angelina is actually in surrey tomorrow so she said she could pick him up too (if he will fit in her back seat.)
the goat naming contest is on....i am thinking pepe...nicole is for rammi...and tammy is for stu....any other suggestions for a name for our new member of the saintly crew?
