Wednesday In The Woods

Meredith Ann asking to go outside a few days ago
 when it was too hot for her to go out.
 I wait til she's in the shade as she get too hot with all her furs.
~ ~ ~
It's a cloudy muggy day.
The black birds are talking.
The smaller birds are visiting.
Riley and Ashton are napping by the windows.
One eye ready to view their beloved tv.

Jodie Belle is on the rug.
Toys near her.
A can, a penguin, an old baseball mitt.

The rest of the Purr and Fur Gang
are napping on couches or beds.

It's been a very active morning.
Thus, the quiet nap time.

Me, I'm having peach ice tea
in a very cute cat cup.
My newest one.
I have several.

I'm on ice. Literally.
It's what gets me through the day.
I'm off of pain meds. For now.
Who knows what tomorrow will bring.

I am getting a few things done.
Today, not as much as I'd like.

There are times when I am sad.
This health situation is not easy.
If it was just one thing, but no, it's several.

I'm going to my primary care Doctor
end of this week.
I hope she can tell me if my heart
problems are no big deal,
which I am hoping for,
or if I need to see another specialist.

I've made an appointment with
my spine Doctor.
He's very busy so it's not for a while.

I hope I'm not still on ice by then.
I am looking for advice.
Something he can do other than surgery.

Til then, I'm going to have up and down days.
This being unable to stand on one's leg
is a real bummer.

And, the rest of my Summer.
Probably will be spent sitting a lot.
On ice a lot.
Using my cane to walk.

I do not want any surgeries.
Not anymore til October.
Yes, that's my next kidney surgery.

Fun times .. no not really.

For today though, I drink in
the beauties in the woods
and in my house.

The best thing I ever did
was get these seven balls of fur.
That and this delic iced tea.

Enjoy !!!

Both the fur family and the peach iced tea (yum!) would seem to be true "happys," balms for the spirit, in their own way. :-)

Now *I* want some ice--for my feet, to cool down!

We are thinking of you. Although I haven't written much about it recently, I have serious spine issues, with about a third of my spine now surgically fused. I hope that you find relief from your pain, and that the days look brighter very soon.

health issues are so draining and exhausting

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
