Not totally out of Kansas- YET!

Friday, February 03, 2012

Hello my long missed friends here on Sparks. I've been very ill, both Blue Basset and I. Even more severe symptoms on my part. And Blue Basset is in need of much prayer and like myself, we just keep doing what we can do, each day. Though I admit, Blue Basset has been the better trooper. His poor bottom has to bother him tremendously, it has gotten some worse and the Vet still is putting off doing anything for fear of his not making it through the surgery. We tend to him as any would an elderly family member. Keeping him clean and as comfortable as possible. It involves polyps and bulging external hemorrhoids now. Fighting off potential infection is our greatest worry. He's almost as stiff getting around now as I am. I have had a re-diagnosis of potential MS or Parkinson's. Unbelievable, that I am still under going further testing after all this time. But it is, what it is.

I've also gained almost 20 lbs. And haven't been able to "wog" with these hounds in almost 2 years now. Yes- we still have my other boy's Ever-Ready and Bandit too. Even now, they look so pleadingly at me at our designated "wog" time we had kept to for all those years here on Sparks. Hard to believe I ever did all those fitness minutes now. I'd like to share more, but the pain and numbness is growing too great. I will try to be more regular here again soon. AND try for those famous "10 minutes of fitness a Day". Even if it's nothing but walking in place. Which I've already started trying for a week now. Take care, and hope to be back here soon.

    It is frustrating when you don't feel good & the doctors cannot figure it out. I have going through the same thing for the last 7 years. Hang in there. And great that you are doing your 10 min Sparks. Every minute counts!
