Now Playing: Day 829-The Final Road To Survival
Guess who's going back to work?
LITTLEBLUE! That's who!
It seems Littleblue has decided to spread her wings and fly as she takes her first steps training to become a "Working Fur Kid!" WOOHOA! Good for Littleblue! Oreo looked at the paperwork this afternoon and said, "Nah, I would rather work on taking it easy, lounging all day and catching some zzzz's...." Hahahahaha! Well, we did ask him but he wasn't interested. This will be a great way for Littleblue to get training in helping other terminal patients and providing loving support. She is on her way to earning her own wings and we can't wait! I think she will be such a blessing to those who also love fur kids and need a smile to brighten their day. Eric will be taking her to training and hopefully once she graduates and earns her wings I can also go a few times a month visiting those who are terminally ill whether it be at a hospital, nursing home or personal residence.
What a blessing indeed and by the looks of it Littleblue is already resting up for her first big day of training. Hee,hee,hee,hee...
We finally got some much needed rain! The ground has been so dry its starting to crack. Its been a chore for Eric each evening to keep up with watering all the flowers and now the new apple trees. We sure needed Mother Natures help today and hopefully there will be more rain tomorrow. The glass block window was suppose to be installed as well the new wiring for the sump pump but since there was lots of lightening with the storms things will have to wait. A few of my dear friends from Texas are going to be in town later this week for their traditional family reunion. Its been yearssssssssss since I have last seen them. Their parents have such a great sense of humor and are super sweet. What a great tradition to have once a year reuniting family together to catch up on life and also enjoying all the festivities. Brian works 16 hour days protecting government oil fields in the heart of Texas so I certainly bet he can't wait to take a much needed break!
Unfortunately this wasn't the day to finally re-start treatment since my latest seizure. Instead I must wait another 24 hours since my doctors had to call in two new medications this evening to help control toxicity in my intestines. GEEZ! I must reiterate again that I have never blamed my condition on anyone. I didn't ask to be sick and who does but lets be honest by saying, "I handle it like a pro and I don't ask for pity parties but please if I ask for your support sometimes that means just lending an ear." Please don't compare Gastroparesis to cancer because they are two totally different conditions. That is like comparing apples to oranges. I had family members make comparisons for years and it bothered me then and it bothers me now. The only thing anyone with "any" medical condition wants to hear are the words of comfort and support.
Once again this evening I decided to reach out to family in hopes of everyone possibly sitting down to talk out the issues at hand. I was hoping to discuss the overwhelming stress I have been getting dished out for quite sometime but once again it failed. I got nowhere but hey! give this gal credit for trying over and over and over and over again. You can't make people change nor understand what they don't want to see but you can stop the stress and walk away. I don't mind if people want to put the weight of their shoulders on me and if it makes them feel better at the end of the day then so be it. Trust me, this gal can handle it!
