We're holding on sunny but very breezy day here. thankfully here Daddyo feeling better from the stomach bug. I am bit run down but is what is. Stopped in to See the gang at Animal Hospital emotional teary visit but good to see them,long overdue. Dropped off card as was Doc BD this weekend(Poppas too)and some goodies for Big Luca his Dane the Mama cat but forgot the bird treats for Bs "deranged" Quaker pal. He loved Bren and the office manager and figured after awhiel I wasnt scared but respectful so just watched me.little angel Oh & drop off some Poop too,bol.laugh out loud Darla going in Thurs for quick check and pick up her frontline and Hartguard.

Our for fun...dearest Gooden heart Darla aka DogMOther Florence Nightendog had interesting late late night foray the other night. She was in far dark corner nor minding DaddyO. He came in so I joked so you walk awaay what if something goes after her? The dumpster from next rdoor in htat area behind fence. Welll I get over there in dark and see Huge grey thing & Darla over it. there was a BIG mother I am thinking, Possum. Huge 20lb+ Housecat size & wider than darla! I thought was really dead & she was there MOTHERing it, licking it and poking it near midnight!!! I know she didnt would never kill even an ant truly so worried more of it was sick or if hurt by other animal it biting her. Thankfully I got her to mind ME quickly she was so concerned for it I felt bad scolding her after. I tried to rouse it to no avail really thought it was dead.confused It didnt respond to anything. well I kept going out as couldnt sleep anyway and several hours later it was fianlly gone thank dog. Poor thing but glad it didnt "awaken" and bite while being groomed & whinged over by our beloved little Miss Ghamdi here.puppy We went to an AMer legion fundraiser dinner sat night with my youngest sis on last minute. +SUnday did a bit then zonked.


hugExtra Love,Healing & Prayers for all Up in Beantown at Marathon. They come there from all over the WOrld to run, each with worried families at home.hug Darkness & crazies cant really Win... WE the Good folks far outweigh the bad!!! The evil psychos just want us to think they can. LOVE winsrainbow

Thanks for all you love & continued supprt. Were haning in and day by day. I have had bd few weeks but uit happens & hitting me as it does and will in it own ways and times. As you know NOthing I do is "normal" way ,bol.wink DaddyO is having tough go as well. Darla is haning in and feels it too. SHe looks for him and espcially when she sees S she foesnt want her to leave. SHe ran to his room when she heard his voice on video poor grrl. This pasr week I (Mom)have been VERY bad with my Spasticity as it will caused severe "strangled"vocal chords and pain/muscle spasms. So no voice and spazzed out to type read properly. It is just a more prolonged episode as happpens not much can do. I saw my NEuro PA fri but just have to take it as it comes/goes.

Ao not much got done and much still needs doing gah months behind and mind getting foggy Grief brain they call it! Learning new ways day to day and cant control tings this "trip through the Valley" is showing us.=smile A tough one for me and others I think xaN relate to is control and wantingn things/oirdselves "just so", to have answers.wink SO sad My Drs PA is leaving Neuro office. she is a true GEM and will be missed ALOT by so many. The new Dr getting her is very lucky. Pray our new PA is decent whenever they find one.


I have not forgotten anyone EVER. Please know our hearrts prayes and love are with each of you and your families. We all have so much going on human and furred Our PAw & prayers with you ALL. I thought I posted for EaSter Pesach andSPring but guess it didnt take. We send tones of love and Blessings to all!hug

As ever all our love. Apparently my Christmas day post is like life lately just not sticking together well.confused Extra hugs for all. NAnny visiting 2 days so quick post for me,bol. Weather stinks m ore ont the way whooppe not. Be SAFE!!


As Flicka posted, We too saying that Christmas is SEASON,always has been for us,not just One day. The Christmas "Quiet mass" for grieveing sick or hurting folks I went to was nice and glad I went and was said there as wellsmile Pre Christmas is Advent or to many Shoppping madness.frown As said Christmas/Yuletide is until Candlemas(feb 2 which is also Grampa Ds Deaprted Dads Bd/groundhog day too. We too keep decorations up at least until Little Christmas(Three Kings/Epiphany) Jan 6th. Lomger this yr as not pushing anything & DaddyO pushed too far doing what he did. We do appreciate the color,we need it & heck we;ll see how it goes. depite the blahs we did it for B as he loved it and got his own Light tree,daddyO special, on his BR wall.little angel BEST Christmas gift we saw S and her family she is despeertatly depressed and we missed her so much. meditate: Lots here down with the flu ohter bugs,cross paws we do not get as 3 plus we were with over Christmas have come down with it and neither of us up to that.confused


ETA::
dogOOPPS got adfternoon .....GOOD news from Dr. I have followup 6 weeks Cardio NO BLOCKAGES!!! I DO have Arrythmias/ohter beat issues/ to be monitored. Hhowever he does NOT want to pile meds on which I say thank dog!Life has been hell I now can say for weeks and so much going on truly one thing after the other and B just sstarting iot hit me. My eldest brothers scre and stents slapped some sense into upping my appts. I will have followup blloddwork office visit within 6 weeks. I had BAD pains,which lessesne and never left but worse with ANY stress. Combo of our horrendous loss, my nrhealth issues,home remodeling Super storms and the Non stop adrenaline surge te origin now just winding down so body said boo!.


I really pushed my envelope as I Had to keep things going and ran out of line. I waited too long and went on the "better" of things not smart of me but I am VERY LUCKY.silenced Do NOT play around folks and keep working on taking care of yourselves please. Ipromised I will call for anything and never put off. Stress is BAD and we all have far too much even with de stressing methods can overwhelm us . I LOVe the Cardio group there Front end and back big anf small so NICe big Plus.way to go I and DaddyO are VERY Tireed and I am still heavy winded even with meds . I will try to get some rest as days wind down and continue to work thtough grief/stressors. Deep sheep.


Love you all so much! Stay STRONG CArry on and TAKE CARE of YOU!!!!!!!!
As I was told recently by a Sage counselor, here is a sentence we can say to OURselves for people/things that hurt us even those done/said even unmeaningly. kitty "Thanks for caring(doing)..."Sheep" you for sharing!puppy
For whatever the "BAD: thing , said silently or loudly when alone out of earshot of said stressors whatever they may be!puppy

We missed him terribly but far too cold in house for him. The nephews and Sis/BIL miss him alot. They played classical music for him during day. I was afraid they would hold him hostage,bol.little angel


However in the destroyed Rockaways,Our old family home ground so to speak,the "forgotten Borough", I recently saw a pic that my Grams house(actually she had apt fist floor of very OLD house) wa still standing! It had huge chunk of the Historic Boardwalk in her front garden and covered in sand & cars an dothr things slammed about! it made me laugh through tears and the many memories there for our family and so many others.cloud 9 It is a war zone there. thanks to the Surf comunity and local FDNY NYPD fianlly got some bit of help. We jokingly await a lowered elcetric and gas bill,bol, but know the future brings astronomic raises to our alrady high level rates. SO much around here on the Island, LOng Beach and there fell off radar, Zips lip.confused PEOPLE helping people best we can.

wave Morning Gang! BAD storms heading our way so quick post Akk. I have haircut this afternoon so hope storms go through quickly. SIL having surgery ths AM In NYC,yesterday was her 60th Bd too.party The Water Authority coming to install new meters so have to wait for them a well since they need access to basement. Darla fell off the front stoop last night thankfully ok but shook us both up. She went to backup to sit down and tumbled off side.confused Darla was goomg to go in for her rabies shot with Brother yesterday but he postponed it until next week. They have a puppy really sick with Lepto and parvo poor thing and and elderly dog came in for mail trim who wound up being dehydrated and sent over to ER hospital. He saw it panting badly and said has he had water lately? Younng people said no not for awhile his temp was 106*. Needless to say B was very upset when he came home & hope he was ok. Funny about the Reare end issue I can only remember our Vets old and new NOT take temp very often. The specialist Vet assistant did take her temp though when we were there.
