Tuesday: Well, a mixed bag of a day. Miss Lilly got her stitches out and that went well. She had to have another liver panel drawn. THAT did not turn out so well. 2 of her liver enzymes are elevated. Of concern to say the least. Do not know why the elevation @ this point, but she was started on 2 meds last night. I pray that they help. She has to be on the one med for 10 days, and her blood work will be checked in 2 weeks. If they remain elevated, then worry. She is not acting ill @ all, so at least thatís a good thing. She is eating, drinking, playing, and all the plumbing works. So, that is all good.

Her sister, Daisy, also has elevated liver enzymes but HER vet attributed it to growth and development (theyíll be 7 mths. on Jan. 3.) My vet didnít seem convinced of that. Thatís all right . . . Iíd rather be safe than sorry. So I passed the information onto Daisyís Mommy and sheís calling her vet today. **SIGH**

Jas and I are feeling better, just so tired. So rest is the order of the day.

Hugs and peace on this last day of 2019.

Sunday: Just got caught up on laundry and house chores then rested yesterday. We were both tired. Felt good.

Rainy, gloomy, ugly day weather-wise.

Blessings on this last Sunday of 2019!

Saturday: Out to breakfast! Wahoo.

We got home late yesterday evening. Traffic was not bad, not bad @ all, going and coming back home.

The Dr. visit went just as I anticipated it would. He recommended a hearing aide for the left ear. Thatís where to start. IF that improves the quality of my life, then, done. IF NOT Ė if the right ear is still bothering me, his next suggestion is a revision of the 2 prior surgeries Iíve had to my right ear as an adult. I would be game to try that if needed. He said it was a 50/50 proposition, though, that it would restore any hearing or help the tinnitus. So . . . itís a long shot and Iím not playing that card at this point. So, now to get the hearing aide. I have all I need to do so. . . onward. And there is a local place that has the kind of hearing aide recommended. Pricey little devil, but if it makes a difference, have to do it.

Otherwise, tomorrow is going to be a laundry then relax day. Long couple of days.

Oh, I caught up with a friend of mine I went to college with @ Mayo in Rochester. She is married and still lives there! So, we talked, and talked and talked like no time had passed! It was nice. We had a very good time.

Phoned my OB Mom (the one who I helped deliver her baby 42 yrs. ago!) We talked for a bit, but she was under the weather so we didnít get together this time.

Thatís all the news thatís fit to print.

Saturday: Miss Lilly is doing really well. She took a poop. LOL Ė only a nurse could get excited about that post op! HEE HEE Sheís doing really well, though. Sheís wearing a newborn onesie and thatís doing the job keeping her from getting @ her stitches. PHEW No cone of shame.

Sadly, no breakfast out, BUT Jas did pick up breakfast for us as a take out. So, we can at least enjoy it @ home. Donít want to leave Miss Lilly that long.

HUGS and wishing you all a very happy holiday!

Friday: Well, Lilly got home around 5 pm and ate a little broth before settling in for a nap. She seemed comfortable over night. Thank goodness. I am glad we chose to take her home vs. leaving her there overnight with NOBODY THERE to tend to any of her needs. **SIGH** Seems like veterinary medicine is getting to be like human medicine. Thatís not a good thing!

Otherwise itíll be a S-L-O-W day just taking care of little Lilly.

Hugs and have a great Friday.

Will keep your DIL in my thoughts.

We ended up with about 8-10 inches of snow. I did go running once the sun was up and the streets were cleared up a bit, and my new shoes were awesome, and with my new socks I even had dry toes at the end! The dogs are not fans, but at least once I cleared the driveway they were okay to go out and pee on everything.

Monday: Yesterday was again a miserable weather day. Rain that changed to snow in the afternoon. Just ugly. I really feel for those trying to return home and to work from the long weekend.

Karleighís Mom suffered a 3rd stroke yesterday. That is 3 w/in 5 hrs. Prognosis is not good. She cannot speak. Karleigh and Ry are going to Alaska later this afternoon. Waiting for a phone call to tell us when to pick them up to drive them to the airport. John has to work So sad.

Please remember them in your thoughts and prayersl

Hugs

Melissa: Hope your new shoes work for a snowy run!

My pup Lilly is not enamored w/the snow and cold. Ah well, she'll learn!

Here's to a great Monday.

Itís all snow and less ick here, but it is going to be quite a bit of snow and we have already cancelled school tomorrow, woohoo! Although, I did just buy some new running shoes with the purpose of being able to run in snow, so I may go out tomorrow and test them out.

Sunday: What a completely miserable weather day yesterday. Rain, sleet, wind, UGLY. Miss Lilly was not enthused at all about going out, but I reminded her that I was out there w/her, too! She would Ďforgiveí me when she warmed up in my lap.

ANNNNND today is a repeat of the ugliness. Rain, wind, dar, dank, UGLY.

Have one more Christmas gift to buy then itís time to start wrapping.

Just got word that my daughter-in-loveís Mom in Alaska has had 2 strokes and is in ICU. Prognosis sounds grave. Please send prayers or good thoughts for Karleigh and her family.

Hope you have a blessed Sunday.

HUGS and blessings.

Donna: TRUTH! That's what this group is all about. Not just sharing things totally diet/nutrition/exercise related, but life's happening, because that's all part of this journey.

Hope you keep coming back.

at times it hard to talk about things. people feel judged not by you. but in general speaking. a problem might be solved if we just shared .they may have experienced a similar thing and can speak about their own way of solving their problem .together we can figure it out emoticon
