kirby update

thanks everyone for sending support about kirby - i can tell we are all animal lovers. i am always in such awe about how much animals mean to us. and how difficult it is to say goodbye to our beloved friends. i'll say it again, i just hate that. i know i am not alone as so many of you have mentioned losing a pet and how hard it was. most of the time, i like animals more than people. (except for my blog friends, of course!) animals are just so nice, they always love you and they are always so darn happy to see you. kirby is doing pretty well. she's on her seizure meds and something for high blood pressure. she sees a vet on friday to draw levels and we go from there. it's a day by day thing for sure. kirby and i will be having a slumber for however long? i'm going to be sleeping in the living room with her with the gate closed and i will take her outside during the night if she has to go pee (a side affect of her seizure meds). it was disrupting the household with dillon having to get up 3 times last night, walk up from the basement and then take her outside. then they were waking up jeff and tucker. so this is the solution for now. dillon starts school tomorrow, so he will need his sleep. me, i don't mind doing it all.

pardon my wrinkly toe, but i thought i'd show you my nice little boo boo. it happened this morning when i was watering and a pair of shutters fell on top of both feet -the right foot taking the brunt of it. after a very upsetting morning with a person that shall not be named, the stress of kirby and the sheer pain, i just burst into tears. then i grabbed the garden hose and just started spraying the heck out of both toes to numb the pain as quick as possible. later i took tucker to the beach for a nice walk on the boardwalk, but paid the price - since i couldn't wear tennis shoes because my right foot is so darn sore, i wore my flip flops and now everything aches: knees, hip, low back, you name it.
