Had a minor Crohns flare: started last night and continued this morning. Methscopolamine helped with that, thankfully. Audrey, the dog with the tumor, is doing okay. Has slept most of the day, I think. I haven't been home! Just got home... Read more

Another cool day. Had to turn the heat on last night as the temps got down in the 40's. Got our license tags renewed today. Had to do it in person as it's our second year here and I had to go to the Tax Assessor and get a piece of paper t... Read more

Audrey's labs came back and were pretty good. Her liver numbers were slightly elevated but that was too be expected with the heart condition. Her creatinine (kidney) was normal, her BUN (also kidney) was slightly high but not a concern. So sh... Read more

Etienne, diabetic cat, had a glucose reading of 70 so we are happy with that. This is with the lowered insulin dose so that is good news. Audrey, the Boston Terrier, had blood taken for lab work. The specialist first suggested to our vet ... Read more

DH left at lunchtime Friday heading to Illinois to visit his parents. The vet called to check on Audrey (Boston Terrier with enlarged heart) and had not heard back from the specialist yet and didn't expect to until Monday. So she's not on meds... Read more

A year ago we closed on our house here in Arkansas and prepared to leave Baton Rouge. What a stressful time that was! DH had been working here since January and I was left in Baton Rouge with the pets and the house, supervising work being d... Read more
