In these last few days, Mom has been sick, AGAIN. I am putting full faith in the concept of Zoonotic Diseases. That may sound fancy but what that really means is that humans don't catch most dog diseases, and dogs don't catch many human diseases.
Nurse Sophie and ME, Nurse Pennie, have once again been working our paws to the bone, and using full force Compression Therapy. Sophie has been laying upon Mom, or curled up tightly against her, to Compress Mom, while I have curled up next to Mom's head. I have aimed my bottom, with it's naturally humidified healing vapors, directly at Mom's nasal and oral air passageways, in the hopes of keeping Mom from another round of pneumonia. When my bottom vaporage has not been powerful enough, I have aimed my full breath in Mom's face, instead.
Mom usually keeps a supply of crackers on her nightstand, in order to take any pills that she needs to swallow.
This is how Dad takes pills: He dry swallows, or spit swallows the pills. When Dad has to bring a Ritalin to Middle Lad at one of Middle Lad's activities, Dad puts the Ritalin in his pocket, and then finds Middle Lad. Dad flicks the lint off the pill, and orders him to dry swallow the pill. When Mom brings a Ritalin to Middle Lad; Mom she puts one pill in a labelled pharmacy bottle and brings along a bottle of water, and perhaps a small treat. She finds Middle Lad and gives him the pill, along with a nice bottle of water, and his treat.
This is how Pennie and Sophie take pills: We get pills wadded up inside an unwrapped, Individually wrapped slice of processed American cheese.
Mom neither dry/spit swallows pills nor does she take pills inside a cheese wad. Mom claims to be of a more delicate nature, and insists that she take pills with a small stack of crackers and several sips of water, to prevent stomach upset.
It occurred to me that perhaps a stirring motivation for Nurse Sophie and ME, Nurse Pennie, to provide so much Compression Therapy is the Crackers. Yes, Nurse Sophie and I work for crackers. Mom eats a few crackers with her pills and then she gives a few crackers to her hard-working Nurses. Since it is rude to leave cracker crumbs in the sheets, Nurse Sophie snuffles up any cracker crumbs.
Do human nurses work for crackers?

Just don't use the Compression Therapy On the crackers. Well, Sophie might like them that way but I bet you prefer huge Mouthfuls of crackers or any other food.
