I have a sick chinchilla and another one that needs her teeth trimmed so I drove all the way to St. Louis to the vet today and then back home. They both need surgery and couldn't do them today as the vet needs 2 hours so we have to go back tomor... Read more
Quiet Sunday

I slept in an hour today. It feels kind of good when I do it but it's not something I really approve of. Experts don't approve of it either. In order to prevent problems with insomnia you should go to bed and rise at the same time every day. I a... Read more

Good news. I had a lighter work load today and as a result I had some time to rest. For some reason I am healing faster than I normally would. One of the cuts is looking good and I got rid of the dressing. I debrided another one a couple of... Read more

Well, another day with no thumbs. lol. It was quite challenging actually. It makes me even more clumsy, if that's possible. I managed to close my hand in the washing machine lid. It was quite painful. I had a ton of work to do today and it... Read more

Today I had high hopes that I would be ahead of schedule like yesterday but it didn't happen. I always want to be organized and efficient but I don't seem to be able to accomplish that consistently any more. When I worked as a nurse I was ... Read more

I had an amazing day. For some reason I got on plan with my exercise right out of the gate and was ahead of schedule all day long. I didn't have to play catch up, like usual, and even could relax in the evening which is atypical. It was really n... Read more
