Good morning everyone!

Thursday. One more day until the weekend. I am suppose to volunteer at the outdoor rink on Friday night for the first time this year. The only problem is that the forecast is calling for freezing rain. Plus, temperatures are to be raining and above freezing this weekend. I don't think it will be safe to open the rink. It will be too warm to flood following a potential skate or "shinny" game. We'll see how it goes!

As for today, there's just some work. I also have Active Release Therapy at 3:15. I'm excited for it. I had a bit of a setback last Friday. Now I know another activity that I cannot do. Live and learn.

Have a great Thursday, everyone. We're now in double digits of the first month of the year. Soon, we'll be only 300 days to the Christmas Season. So much is ahead of us.

Wish seems to have felt really good today. I started researching things in a K9 Kidney disease forum I joined and discovered that one of his meds, Benazepril, can cause elevation of the BUN !! So I am going to talk to the doc about this. Maybe he will consider changing to another drug. I hope so.

He is actually asleep by me on the loveseat which is where he always used to be. He is acting himself tonight for the first time in a while. Why Did I not know he was not feeling well ?? I am supposed to be his pet parent. I did get him to the doctor the minute he didn't want his breakfast...

Made - I hope your mother is over her headache and I hope your niece is doing okay. My arthritis seems to be under control now. I even have normal looking TOES !!! The psoriasis itself is not gone though....I am still a freak.

Seawaters - I hope you are feeling better.

Meceka - Congratulations on becoming an aunt again !!! I bet the baby is beautiful.

CAH, Christmasstar, Jennifer, MaryCarey, MerryMistletoe, Claire, Sugar, Lauriebear, and EVERYONE.....((((HUGS)))) to all of you just because xo

Goodnight dear Christmas family...Perhaps I can actually rest tonight.....


CM3, you are such a loving & caring pet parent!!
It's so hard to tell when they are not feeling well, unless they do something obvious to show us.
I wish they could talk to us, or I wish we spoke their language..
It's usually something that they aren't doing, like Wish not wanting his breakfast, that alert us that something is off.
And you were on that right away. Kudos to you.
Wish is lucky to have you, and you-him.
Good luck when you talk to the vet! Keep us posted. XO

Hope you're feeling better soon, Ryan! Take good care of yourself.

any idea what caused it? Looked it up and Rogers will not say what it was. I am glad it is back again!

Good Morning MMC!!!! It's going to be a rainy dreary day here in central Indy. That's okay though. I have plenty of stuff to get done inside. First things first though. I have to get my chicken and noodles in crock pot so it's ready when all of you get here tonight. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

You're not a freak!!!

My mom is doing better this morning. The headache is still there but it's better. My niece just had another infusion on monday and seems to be doing good. She hasn't really been complaining so my sister tries to not bring it up.
