Well despite it all or maybe because of it all, I slept well again last night. Woke at 6 and she was laying in the same place, looked up and just sighed. I gave her some love and went back to bed. At 8 when I got up, she took her meds to coat her belly and then we went out in front. Only for a few mins and back in. Just wish she could say if she is in pain. doesn't appear to be and the vet said they didn't think so really.
Anyway on with life as it is right now. tears and sighs lots of hugs. I will be okay after a bit just a shock. then when time comes expect more of these tears.
We are going to go camping as long as she isn't worse. She likes it outside and the trailer has only 2 steps and hubby can lift her in.
So still so proud of myself, for not getting those bars yesterday at the store, I certainly could have used any excuse to get them and I didn't. I also haven't given in to the cravings the past 3 nights and am glad for that too.
Now best go get some breakfast, tidy up a bit, Hubby has to put the rails in the truck for the 5th wheel before we go so he may do that today.Okay off I go, thinking weaher may change as my R knee is totally tight.
Talk later and thanks for the hugs and caring.

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.

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.

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!
