Good First Morning of 2013 My Dear Christmas Family !!

I hope all of your celebrations were wonderful and that you all had a nice evening.

As I said before, I wanted to be here last evening with you all but that all came to an end when I gave Wish his fluids yesterday. He nearly screamed when I put the needle in and then he wimpered the whole time. Thankfully it does not take long for the fluid to infuse. That was not the whole thing though. I get very upset when I have to do this but I WILL do it to save his life, but on top of being nervous about putting the needle my husband started yelling at me criticizing me saying I was doing it wrong, etc, etc, etc. I was a complete nervous wreck by the time it was all over. I know he gets upset that Wish is for the most part at the end of his life and needs these treatments but I DID NOT need to be yelled at, especially at that time. I just see no reason why anyone has to yell at another person especially at a stressful time. But that is always the first thing he does.....

It put me in such an awful mood that I unplugged the tree and turned off the Christmas lights and just lay in the dark here in the living room crying for a time. Eventually I felt better and got back on here to say Happy New Year to everyone. Okay, enough of my tirade.....

Shellie, it is not a butterfly needle. Not sure what gauge it is but it is a subcutaneous injection, not IV or anything. Wish does not have much loose skin which means that wherever the needle goes in, he FEELS it. If he had as much loose skin as Hermione, he would never even know but he doesn't.

I am getting ready to see what kind of work is in the system at my job and probably going to work half day today. Have a wonderful day, Christmas Family. If it were not for all of you, I don't know where I would be ((((HUGS)))) to all xoxoxo



Aw, poor Wish ~ rest assured that he knows you are helping him! I know it is hard to do something like that for him, but kudos to you and Mr. CM3 for doing all you can, no matter how hard it is. I will keep praying for all of you. Take care, CM3! {{{HUGS}}}

I have done so much cooking & cleaning this season for different parties...I just don't really want to deal with another party. Lol! A few friends said they might come over in their comfy sweats & watch some football. Sounds like a great day to me!! (though I would rather watch the last day of Christmas on Hallmark Channel.) I don't even want to think about going back to work tomorrow. Unbelievable. As always - the season flew!!!
I am going to try to find something fun to make with sausage links for a snack...we need to have pork of some kind today!!! Maybe my hubby will run to the store for me!!!
I hope you are all having a Wonderful Jan 1st! Lets kick this year off right!!!!
I'd rather watch the Hallmark channel, too! Happy New Year to you and yours, Holiday!

WOW!!! 11 pages deep into the 2013 countdown already! I hope everyone had a great New Years Eve, and an even better 2013!!!

As CAH said, we were in bed pretty early last night. This is probably the first year since I was a little kid that I didn't see the ball drop in Times Square. Of course living in the central time zone it is a bit anticlimactic since it is only 11:00 when it happens.

I hope everyone has a great day!!!
