This was a very busy and sad day for me. This morning I took Josh (our dog) to the Vet as he has not been eating right, has lost weight and is gimpy. When I looked in his mouth, the problem was obvious. In April he had two growths removed and they were malignant...it appears that they are starting up again. I just knew the news would not be good....we think it is in other places in his body. The Vet put him on antibiotics and something to address his gimpiness...in a week we should know quite a bit more. For now, I will keep him as comfortable as possible...tonight he ate his dinner (dry kibble topped with spaghetti). That was a good sign. He still goes out with me for chores and as long as there is some quality in his life we will keep going. I can't see going for the heroics as I think it is too late.
After that I had an appointment for a Physical and found out the results of a bone scan. It was the first one I have had so I can get a baseline. Happy to report that all that shoveling and moving wheel barrows for 27 years has paid off. A+ and no bone loss. All you women out there....lifting (resistance) is good.
Then, I went to the grocery store and home in time to change my clothes to do evening chores. Quickly made dinner, and was off to a meeting. By the time I got home it was dark and Gary was kind enough to take off the horse's masks. Could I just go in the house? No,
I had to take more pictures of the night. This must be getting boring.
