A cooler morning....yey.
This soloing for chores is not fun...but no choice.
Got to the "spa" before 9 and the water temperature was 82ish...divine.
Gary had a Doctor's appointment this afternoon at 2:30. Someone cancelled so he
was able to get in sooner than expected. Our friend Randy came up for a visit and ended up driving him there and stayed the whole time. That's a real pal.
At 2:30 I had an appointment at the Brockport Animal Hospital so Gucci and Phoebe could get a physical....so I could get a heartworm test...so I could pay a bloody fortune for heartworm pills.
All my horse buddies....we can get a dose of ivermectin for anywhere from $4-$12 for a 1200 pound horse. I have to pay a fortune to get heartworm meds for a 16 pound dog. We have been getting ripped for so long. And it is my opinion that our animals have all been overmedicated too.
I have great respect for my vets and this hospital....but I still feel we are being manipulated through "peer" pressure to get this, get that....
Gary did not get home until around 5.
I went out to do chores....
and finished just in time for a delivery from our friends Judy and Randy.
She brought us her spectacular mac and cheese.
Now, about Gary. His tendon was totally torn and he had two choices...
surgery or to wear this boot, which has a raised heel and forces the two
parts of the tendon together enough to start knitting back together.
It's going to be a long haul.
Bon Voyage to Ariana, Daniela and their grandparents who just got on a plane headed
for Croatia. They were delayed by bad weather in New York and the storm finally blew over.
