Mom was having alot of trouble thinking, having some changes to her vision, was just plain weird. She thought she'd had a stroke or something, so she went to the dreaded doc. The doc said no stroke... NOT YET! Okay, major wake-up call for Mom! Doc said to take it as easy as possible, avoid stress (HA!) and to rest, rest, rest! Mom had to keep working, of course. Gotta put kibble in the bowl, and keep a roof over the ole' doghouse that is our home.
Mom has done everything the doc told her to do, except quit smoking. The doc actually wanted Mom to wait till she was well rested for that so as not to add MORE stress. I think Mom is going again for meds to help her quit.
I can't type myself, 'cos my feets too big, so I haven't been anywhere on the 'puter for a while.
We had a friend of Mom's who lost their elderly dog a few weeks ago and another friend called Mom tonight for doggie advise. She thinks their dog is dying. Mom is on "comfort alert" right now.
I feel bad about how rotten things have been for Mom! She had so much stress taking care of me after my January injury. She worked so very hard to bring me back to almost normal! She recently got me off Rimadyl because she was so worried about liver failure and behavior changes (some of the MANY side effects). Now I'm all herbal. I feel great now, thanks to Mom. Unfortunately, she paid the price for it.
It hasn't been the finest of years, so far, but there have been bright spots, like our friends here.
Thank you for sending my Mom birthday wishes! We had a nice, quiet day together. It was fun. Mom says she can't believe she's made it to 50! I can...when all is said and done, she's a tough old bird!

Awe Bub we will be thinking of your mom. We know what it is to have to go to doctors all the time as our mom does that every month. That is good though keeps tabs on her and asked a lot of questions. Your mom is lucky to have you by her side. We know you will keep her on good behavior too. You learn to live one day at a time . The doc put mom on a new pill and it makes her dopy which don't take much woof! She sort of woke up from them and her eyes got funny and couldn't see out of the right eye right. Half way was grey and she looked up and it went up after a minute of two it was gone. She isn't taking them pills anymore. She will see the doc Wed. Dumb things happen but we are there for her always. Hope your mom is ok and we are thinking of her. ((((((HUGS))))
