    Sorry to hear about Pooky.
I hope this will be over for both of you soon.
You both did all you could for as long as you could. I am remebering when i had to do it under these circumstances with our 20 year old Siamese cat= we adored.

Wish I could give you a really big hug. You are special
Pat in Maine.

emoticon my hug for PICKIE. Take care Pat

    I am so sorry to hear about your pet! We went through it in May month with our 17.5 year old dog. It hurt like nothing else and I do believe I cried just as much for her as I did when my beloved father died several years ago. Let yourself grieve....grief is grief no matter what or who it is over! Cry rivers if you have to because getting it all out will make you fell a lot better in the end. Thinking of you and Pooky!

    I feel so bad, I will be praying for you both. We all have to go thru this with our animals. I sometimes wonder if it is worth it, then remember all the good years and love. Try to think of those days. Be strong, we woman are.

    I hope you've taken her to a vet for an assessment. Letting her suffer isn't what you want to do. Or maybe meds can help, etc. Either way, letting an animal suffer and die when there is something you can do isn't what you want, either. Let your conscience be your guide.

My beautiful hickory cabinets are here, as are the countertops!! Yea!!!
I practically dragged the driver out of his cab to hurry to unload everything 26 huge cartons! My garage is filled with it all!!
We opened a couple boxes so I could see some wood grain!!(And sniff and fondle it all)!!!!!
The valance for over the sink has a big hunk of dark woodgrain CENTERED in the middle!! SOmebody took the time to do that!!
We opened a cabinet and they actually took the time to make the center panels match with all dark, but teh outer part is all natural, beautiful!!
I almost cried I was so happy!!
Twenty five years of waiting and here they are!!
Firmed up date of Sept 28 for start of project,, hard part is over, unless you count the part of me burning a hole in plastic and/or writing checks!!
Even the flooring guy showed up at the same time as Dan, Patsy and cabinet deliverer,, also Fed Ex showed up in the middle of our unloading to deliver my replacement monitor..
no room at the end of my street for any more deliveries!!

My garage is full, my cup runneth over!!
okay, going back out to sniff and caress my countertops and doors!! mmmmmmm..

Pooky had a seizure just as we started our walk this morning,, on the road.. scared the be-jeebers out of me, we have a follow-up appointment this week with teh vet,, not usre what will happen it is all up to me,, I cannot make that decision yet,, never had to do it,,
she wanted tp keep on going for teh walk when she finally came out of it though, I am scared to go very far down our street, just took her a few houses up and back a few times, she was not happy.. even though she was not that sure-footed..
sticking close to home today.. got to get up at three tomorrow morning for work.. clean and rest today..watch the dog...

    A year ago, I lost two dogs. one dashhound and a sh*tzu; three months apart. One died shorty after she had a couging spell. But she had so many tumors and cataracts; Old age I suspect. She was born with a heart murmur and I was surprised she lasted 12 years. and the dashound had Cushings Disease, which was weird, she was healthy until I got sick, I had a form of Cushings Disease and as I was getting stable, the dog was slowly deteriorating. WE were forced to put her to sleep. The Vet said it would be cruel if we did not get her the medication and we really could not afford it. I was hoping to help her with herbs, but the Vet said she would die in two weeks and that would be inhumane to allow her to suffer, so my daughter had her put to sleep. It broke my heart for she was the only real friend I had that understood me. Dogs love me. I cried as if she was a baby. I still miss her and its been over a year since we had to put her to sleep. So I know how hard it cant be losing a pet if she were to be out down. My heart is sad for yours. I hope you did not have to put ehr down. I had seizures for 5 years after a car accident and what kept them under control was a sedative, scullcap, an herb. I coudl not take dilantin. They can help sedate dogs too. Hope you did not have to put her/ him to sleep. emoticon

    Poor puppy. I've never had a dog that gets seizures, so I've never looked in to what causes them, how it can effect a dog's overall health, etc. How old is Pooky? Has this been an ongoing problem. How is her health otherwise? I hope you are bearing up well ... our pets, like our children, often suffer less than we do when something like this happens.

    I hope it was just a passing thing, but also hope that if not -- the vet will know what to do to let Pooky have a few more years of pain-free, happy life. Keep us informed -- we are all pet owners & lovers and are sharing your worry and fear with you!

    Your vet can control those seizures fairly cheap. I use to have them and they gave me phenabaratol and i think thats what they can give your dog i persume? I use to have a dog that had them and they went away on their own don't be to quick to do something durastic ! Please let me know how things are going i will be praying for you God cares about your pets to! emoticon

Knitting up loose ends, again..

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

met claims agent at moms after work, (Kristy was there all morning to do her laundry,etc), checked her car to see if she had banged it up at the marble orchard when she hit the tree, graves, floral baskets,etc a couple weeks ago, but it is intact(I tell you, this woman could fall off the Statue of Liberty and land on fluffy cushion,,) nothing ever REALLY happens TO her,,if it was me, it would be a mess...

stopped at moms bank to make deposit, then at gas station to put a few drops of gas in rental before returning it, then on to dealership to pick up Cedric!!
It was actually a happy trip there for the first time! Been there about twenty times since last December, but when I saw how spiffy Cedric looks now, I felt great!!

The slick thing is: When Mrs. Social Skills hit him, Cedric was sporting all the scratches, missing paint, dings and dents from Mom's driving skills before I got him from her.. She ended up paying for the replacement of all the parts that she hit that were already a mess.. I was so worried about selling him with all his mess in front..

Rob, the body shop manager, felt so sorry for me, he had the guys bump out a big scratch above the driver door lock,, nowhere near the accident, but now Cedric is SHOWROOM SHINY AND NEW~!~
He is happy to be sleeping in his own garage though.. all those strange trucks in the shop,,HUMOR ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! emoticon

Did some Christmas shopping online,, had a salad and hopefully, tomorrow I can get some ME things done!! So glad Kristy did the laundry and mowed the lawn while I was gone!!

Estimates for moms house repair hopefully this week...
