I am happy to report that Bruno is nearly like his old self again! I know that's the Prednisone, but actually, he started to do a little better before his first dose Thurs. nite! I am so blessed that, at least for now, he's much better! Even holds his ears like a puppy again! All day, Thursday, he didn't do that, like he just felt like doodoo. And he probably did feel like that. He still is a little wobbly on his legs, but this afternoon, he bounded out the front door like old times and did all his business, sniffed around and popped right back into the house! This is the first time since Wed. that he was able to go out on his own! (I was carrying him out to the grass as we have 2 little steps out the door to the porch which he would fall down).
So, at least for now, he's my old Bruno again! I will keep you updated! I want to take this opportunity now to thank all of you for your comments and your prayers and warm wishes for me and Bruno and if you wouldn't mind too much, please keep us there ( in your prayers) as Bruno is 15 after all, and Prednisone just masks symptoms which means he may not be out of the woods. Y'all are great and I just don't know what I would ever do had I not met all you wonderful folks! (((HUGS))) (((HUGS)))

It's me again, my friends. Sometimes y'all are the only ones I can go to and I hope you don't mind too much. It's my Bruno doggie. He's 15 ( at least) and has developed some awful thing. He can't use his legs. You can stand him up and they just fold under him. I've had him to the vet today. He did blood work, which was fine. Then he did a couple of x-rays, and they didn't show any problems. Poor dog hasn't peed all day. I tried slinging him in a towel and got him outside, but he didn't pee. Don't know if he'll be able to eat this evening! Doc said he could refer me to a specialist, but it would be cost prohibitive, esp. at his advanced age. We're starting him on prednisone today and the vet wants to see him again Mon. or Tues. My poor baby. He doesn't understand. My DS is home now and he will help me with the little guy.
I fear his days are limited, now and it scares me so much. I know he can't stay forever, but longer would be preferred.
Prayers, my friends, please! This is not just a random dog as most of you can identify with.......this is my 4-legged son.
Thank you all so, so much for reading and your understanding and your prayers. I will keep you all updated in a blog. (((HUGS)))

This may not seem to be anything needing an explanation, but to those of you who follow me on their friend feed, I'm sure you noticed 4 entries on this past Monday for a 9 minute walk. It was actually 4 separate 9 minute walks! No double clicking this time! hehe My DGD is going to an arts and crafts class a street over from my house, so I walked her up then I walked home, then I walked up to retrieve her, then we walked to my house! It was a slow walk, so 9 minutes one way, 4 times for me!! Yay! So, that's all that was, but I thought y'all should have all the d'ruthers!! hehe
Yesterday I got over to the gym and walked an hour while watching Bones. (one of my fav. shows) Need to do it again, but I'm wiped out! Maybe I'll do half and hour then back to an hour tomorrow.
Hope y'all are doing Sparkly !! ((HUGS))

I forgot to mention as I told you about Chef Meg's luscious offerings the almost most important part!!! Since I wrote that first blog about the recipes I've tried, I've lost 1 pound. As long as I get some exercise each day and eat only (or mostly) only these dishes.......the weight drops! If you have "The Spark Solution" it pretty well says that right out! And it works! I strongly recommend getting, reading and trying out this book!! Take 'er out for a spin! Kick the tires!! It works if you work it!! Promise!!
Hope you all are having a super day and a super successful day as well!! (((HUGS)))

So, most of you know I've been trying out some of Chef Meg's recipes and have asked about which ones I've tried and if they were good....well, here goes.
I have tried more that serve 4 or 6 or more so my DH & DS can get some benefit, too. So, recipes I've tried and love ( from the Spark Solution book):
Dijon-Herb Pork Tenderloin---yummy and easy, too!
Inside-Out Burgers ----I think I could have done better with finding some way of making them juicier and more moist with the los-fat meat.
Alfredo Pasta with Broccoli - Yummy and easy peasy!!
Baked Macaroni and Cheese - East and yummy!! DS was raised on mac & cheese ( I know, I was a hurry up mom) and he liked it fine!
Meg's Pan-Fried Chicken - Yup! Good, too!
One Dish Dinner: Chicken and Vegetables - Very good and easy!
One Dish Dinner: Southwestern Chicken and Rice - My all-time fav!! Makes more than you'd think! I ate a 1 cup serving and DS did, too. I still froze 8- 1 cup servings!
Great for go-to lunch or suppers!
Panko-Breaded Fish with Tomato Salad - If you like fish, you'll like this! I didn't care for the tomato salad, but the fish was dee-lish!
Quick Chicken Enchiladas - Very good, but it took me a long time to prep! But I am not skilled in the kitchen, so it took me awhile. I bought a rotisserie chicken and weighed out my amount and shredded it for this recipe. Sooo yummy!!
My fav. lunch of hers is the Curried Tuna. She suggests eating it like a sandwich or a wrap, but I just eat it right out of the bowl I put it together in! Love it!!
Not in the Spark Solution book, I did the ......(forget the name she gave it).....like little baked hand held Apple Pies or dumplings! Instead of using phyllo as she has, I bought canned croissants and made half the filling and rolled it up in the croissants! Had enough to do all 8!! I'm going to do this much more frequently!! No sugar added or needed!!
So here it is! I've had to type this 3 times now as it keeps disappearing! So I'll close now in fear of it going away prematurely!! Hope you try some of these!! Chef Meg is trying to teach me how to cook!!!
