I am in Viv's St. Patrick's Day Swap. It was a quickie so we could get the swaps early. I have very little decorations for St. Patty's Day. I do have a son that was born on that day. Here is what went in the mail for my person. It is supposed to be a surprise. I don't know if my person is a follower but we will see. I love the little leprechaun that is sleeping and the little boy that stands. It was hard to find things. My person likes vintage linens. I found this dresser scarf and it's green. A couple of embellishments and a little bouquet of green. I hope she likes her package.
Remember when I had the Origami Owl giveaway. Well this is what I mailed to Viv today. It was supposed to be a locket. It is so much fun putting these items together for someone. She got a locket, a long chain and three charms. The charms are a heart shaped family charm (Viv is all about her family) a little cat (she has two Siamese kittens) and a camera (to represent her blogging). She also is getting two dangles that are attached next to the locket. One is a bird cage because she has a parrot. And the other one is a blue flower. That was just added to give some color. I hope she is excited about her gift. It is really hard to photo with the glass in the locket.
This is the little leprechaun that is going to my swap partner. The one on my banner is from the same family.
Little Izzy had her blood test today to see what is wrong with her kidneys. It came out okay except for the high protein problem. We are going to try her medicine that she is currently taking twice a day for a month. If here isn' a change then we will try another med. Her blood work was $130 and taking her blood pressure was $49. The blood work was done in house. Why would it be that much. The blood pressure I did voice my concern about that cost. They said they had to do a Doppler on her. They left the room with her for both and she was gone about ten minutes. I am so glad that the tests were pretty much normal but wish we knew why she has an overactive bladder and has these wetting accidents. She can be on your lap and have an accident and you don't know it til you stand up. Last night she wet the bed......our bed. Luckily she was on a doubled up quilt sleeping. I guess there is always diapers......yuck. She is really frisky. At the vets a couple thought she was a puppy. There was a Mastiff that came in when we were there. He weighed 180 lbs. Izzy walked up to him and they sniffed each other noses. Afterwards I stopped at the store for just some bread, coffee, diet Coke and dog food because we have a big storm coming.....again.
Stay warm and cozy and safe.
