My little Izzy, the Yorkie, is not feeling well. Her liver is enlarged as her lymph nodes and sludge in her gall bladder. Her little tummy is bloated. She keeps "me" up at night wanting to get out and in our bed. She hides most of the day under a big buffet. Yesterday they did a scan and blood work. She has some form of hepatitis.
Not sure what kind, a biopsy would be able to tell but that is so invasive. The vets are trying meds for now to see how she will respond. She is still eating and slightly active. The doctor told me today on the phone that he was "hopeful. " Izzy is only 6.
I knew the other night that something was really wrong. Piper, her big brother, walked up to her and licked her all over her head. It was the sign I needed to call the vet. He is like a little mother to her. She likes him but still bosses him around. We kennel him when we are gone because he eats pillows. When I come home it is warm in front of his cage. Izzy must be sleeping there to be near him.
I am "hopeful" as well. Of course this is all costing a pretty penny. What do you do?
Okay more of life.........I knew day one that something wasn't right about my new job. The first day the dad says we are too loud after less than an hour. The second day, all is well and mom comes down and nurses the little girl (18mos.). I really have this feeling that she is going to tell me any minute that she doesn't want to leave the baby while she works at home. Well today, only day 3, she calls and dad has food poisening and cancels me for the day. Hmmmmm, I think I see where this is heading. This will be a first for me if it doesn't work out. I am thinking that the past two years since Goose started school, that I am not making good choices about jobs. I have a couple other options so I am "hopeful."
Today school started. I got up at 8:00 a.m. without an alarm clock. I would have gotten up at 5:15.......I do like this. Last night Izzy had me up alot. Then early this morning some really strong storms moved through. My first thought, seriously, was please rain in Texas. Then we I got out of bed for good, I look outside.
Not expecting to see a dozen wild turkeys right outside my window. I ran to get my camera, well walked, and of course they had scooted away. The mom turkey reappeared but still didn't get her picture.
I didn't feel the earthquake and I am bummed. I must have been driving. Very strange that the East, West and Colorado all had tremors. I am "hopeful" that some of the dry areas will get some rain out of the storm that is brewing.
I read a quote the other day that said that God was insulted when we worry.......just another reason to be "hopeful."
