Today was my dreaded doctors appointment. I have come to realize, that ALL doctor appointments are now dreaded.
Nothing really to dread from todays visit. She went over my blood test results, hormone, thyroid, vitamin d, etc.
She told me I am worrying too much and that for my age, 46, these are perfectly normal results. and that this is just all a part of life.
So, in other words, get over it, you're getting old!!!
So, I feel a little better, nothing to worry about says she.
And the number on the scale, while it was a bad number to me, was still 2 pounds less than last time.
2 pounds gone is 2 pounds gone.
Now to just make it 2 +2+2+2 etc etc etc!!
So, that is behind me for the time being, now to just get thru this next upcoming appointment and see where that leads, if anywhere.
I am just glad that the number on the scale wasnt any higher and maybe now I can see that it isnt the end of the world and I can get back to working hard and eating healthier, which I sure have been the last few days.
It is a sunny nice day here and I am going to relax the rest of the evening.
Puppy is in the itchy scratchy stage of after-care for her surgery. Day 3.
I have been leaving the cone on her, even though I dont think its 100 percent keeping her from being able to lick.
It seems to help a little, she has now started taking her back foot and trying to scratch the area.
I have been pretty much leaving her in her crate, getting her out for a half hour here and there to eat and go potty.
Letting her stretch her legs some.
She doesnt really seem to be in much pain, she moves around briskly.
But she had some dried on poo on her backside, she wouldnt let me near her, so we had to hold her and clean it off and cut some of it that was matted to her coat.
I believe that was bothering her more than anything else.
She will sit quietly in the crate for a spell, then jump as though shes running from something and hop from one side of the crate to the other.
She will scratch the area with her foot for a minute and is beginning to show some redness, a few inches from the incision.
I know mostly this is just itching where her hair was shaved. I just hope to make it peacefully thru the next couple of days until the danger of her tearing at her stitches has passed.
Shes to go on the 19th to have them removed.
So many appointments. May has been a busy bee.
Cant wait til July, to just sit in the sun and relax and let it all wash out to sea!!!
