Woeful Wednesday bad news for our dog and us.

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Well Marlo is back with us for as long as she lasts or till she gets worse. She had exrays and they found a mass, said may have do surgery in am. Then they called back said they found spots on her liver, spleen adn part of it showed her lung, so we had another exray on lungs full of spots. So... no surgery and keep her here till she can. We have meds for her stomach to help her eat and thats about it.
OMG cry and sad, 11 years old on Sunday. Sucky sucky so sad. Our other dog had to be put down from cancer at age 4 which I suppose was worse as she was happy and plyaful but had it in her mouth and couldn't eat. Marlo is so lethargic. looking back we see signs but nothing really that sticks out.
ANYWAY we didn't go out for supper, so we have nothing to eat quick here, so hubby wanted tv dinner, YUK so got him that and got me a chicken terryaki blue menu one, not great either. BUT I saw bars at the counter picked up 2 and thought no, that isn't going to help anything. I got hubby chips and I got myself blueberries. So that is a huge victory as I am almost crying at the cash would have been so easy to get those bars.
So now to tell dd, told ds, and have to tell dad, but Lisa will be as devestated as we are. She and I aer the dog lovers and omg even though we got her when they moved out and Lisa was made at first as we got her not too long after we put our other dog which was Lisas down, marlo is still so special to Lisa too. Anyway...... going now to fart around eat this supper, drink my water and read adn pat my baby.
Happy anniversary to me and hubby as we both have someone to lean on and cry on. I would hate to go through this alone.
HUGS all.

    So sorry about Marlo. We lost 2 dogs to cancer (a Scottie and a Westie), but both were older (13 and 15). Very hard. I hope the weather clears up for your holiday.

    I just joined this group after reading about your sweet Marlo. I have three dogs, and I love them all. I can completely identify with how you feel. What an awful thing to face on your special day!
Maybe you can celebrate your anniversary again, some later time when things are better.
I just want you to know that I connect with this, and add my thoughts to those of everyone else.

    so sorry to hear about your dog Marlo. Keep him as comfortable as you can and enjoy every moment with him. I had to put my little one to sleep last year and just last week i was told my cat has renal failure. I will pray for you.

    NOT good you have my sympathy - my tom cat died 6 yrs ago he was 11- no illness just didn't wake up one Saturday morning. I think he had a heart attack but only God knows. I hope your dog can live out her remainder in peace and happiness. And I really feel for what you are going through . emoticon

Wondering wednesday

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Certainly not the anniversary we planned for 35 years of marriage but thats okay, life gets in the way - same as our eating and exercising.
Got up at 5 am to pee, went down to check marlo, still laying on the floor where she was when we made her go pee. She took a good drink and layed down. I went to bed again. I slept so well despite thunder/lightning and pouring rain and marlo. I slept the best I have woke a ew times cos of my foot paining on the sheet.
So called the vet said he was busy all day, I said well he didnt'call. Hubby is right our vet is awesome but like a good dr when you get to see him. He is now a clinic and has 4 other vets workign for him so we saw who we could. She is at the vet now getting bld work and exray, when they palpated her bellyl she didn't like it at all. all the rest seemed fine. So checking out liver, kidneys, bowel etc. So our vet is so nice to us adn her, I met him when I worked at a daycare and he picked his kids up. He is so into the anmila how are you, whats going on, etc. and talkign to us. she didn't talk to marlo just us,a nd did the exam, told us the Sticker shock price and we said yes. Hubby said feel like they don't care when it was just him and one other. I tend to agree.
So 200 $ deposit and they will call when we can go get her. I hope she is just sick but who knows. We will take care of her and do what we can and hope for the best. she is 2 larger breeds even though she isn't so big so who knows how long she will live.
I weighed myself this am, for another site I go to somedays adn am down 3 lbs now if I can keep it till sat for our weigh in here. We did go out for breakfast at coras, and I came home and got severe belly ache, diarhea and such - feel fine now. perhaps I lost all the cals I consumed! LOL
Okay off to read for a bit, must open some windows and let the breeze in now that the rain has passed.
Update when we know. HUGS have a great day of great choices. I am getting to my water as was gone this am.

Good morning what am I doing up it is just after midnight

Monday, July 23, 2012

I was so hungry and wanted sweets or crunchy ( not a chip person) so went for a walk after supper. Was pretty good as my L leg has been bothering me again but I went to the street over that is about a 20 mins walk or so. Came home, and was still so hungry got watching antiques roadshow and fell asleep just before 10 and woke at 11. Now it is 12;33 and wide awake. Going to go to bed with my book in few mins.
Will add more when I get up! LOL

lol no I didn't just get up! LOL

Hoping my doggy is going to be okay, she hasn't moved all day but for 2 times. She didnt even want to go for walk, won't eat or drink not even scrambled eggs. Called vet and he wasn't in this eve, but will call in am. we will probably take her in to check. hate pets and babies being ill well anyone but they cant talk to say whats up. She will be 11 on july 29. I just don't have a good feelign about this for some reason. So we may not be going anywhere for our anniversary tomorrow will see what goes on with marlo.
Starving still.......... want chewy choc. very specific. lol not ice cream, not choc. not chewy candy not chips argh. so friggin craving. been like that for 2 days now. so far haven't had anything but 4 squares about 1/2 inch square of dk choc. over the 2 days.
well going to go read, I finally got the nora gedgaudas book from library about primal body and mind.
cya in the am, with a doggy update. pray it is a good one!

Sunday bedtime!

Sunday, July 22, 2012

A fantastic day for us. Do have to say there was a terrible house fire in a new fancy subdivision in Dartmouth but not near us. One house is totalled and part of the one next door. So far I have only heard that noone was in the houses, haven't heard anything official.

So today we got up and I walked dog, and then we hung out and later went to DS and played with thomas and eva. later we went to sil trailer and had a great visit and supper.

Home and got all the garbage,( not a full can, we are good recycler and composters ) and rest out. Now going back on blogs as hubby suggested making notes of when pain started and how it is worse and stuff.

cos. going to sil cottage, I got a sharp elec. shock in the outer bone of my L knee and then bad pain and also dull pain in my ankle. This happened a few times with me screaching out it HURT. then we goty there and it we walked not too far and it went away. We got in truck and not too far and did it again all the way home. have had it 2 x since. this is totally new and no idea what it is. Did notice last night when I got in bed, I put my foot on the bed, and my outer side of my L foot hurt when the sheets even touched it. strange. so moved it and didn't put it down on the sheet in diff area of bed. finally fell asleep, noticing now that if I even try to rub my foot against my L side of L foot it is so tender really hurts Man........

Oh well nothing so drastic that I am in pain now. Those sharp electric pains, that then went dull pounding are gone. I am going to go get ready for bed, take my pill and read for bit. Hopefully I will be able to lay on R side so L foot wont hurt LOL

Hoping for a pain free knee/ankle /foot day tomorrow!
HUGS all

    Cindy it sounds like nerve pain, your symptoms are similar to what I get in my arm, especially the sheet sensitive issue, there are so many different fabrics that my arm doesn't like, it makes it difficult
Can you get an mri of your leg and hip!!!!

Good afternoon all!!!! lol I feel like I am looking at my kitchen walls with this background with ivory cupboards lol
So had a good morning then dd and dog arrived for a visit, we took her and dog home in her van which we had borrowed for the day while the bed fo the truck had some work done. then we 3 went to home outfitters where I found a duvet for 29 on sale from 129! so new for our bed and old one can go on trailer bed.
Just hearing on TV about that terrible shooting in Colorado. What a tradgedy so many killed and hurt. Useless this stuff is so sad. Hugs and prayers to all involved.
Not much more new yet, feeling very up and ready for a new fresh start. I have been doing good mostly but know I have to step both exercise and healthy eating up.
