Howdy, my fine friends!
I thought I'd start my post with a nifty title like that! I think I can speak for ALL of us in the Schranz household that this morning was the morning from Hell!! Even our sweet kitty, Jack had a rough one....here's a pic of him upset with us for taking him from the groomers. But he soooo needed to go. If we would have waited anymore on it, I could have taken Jack outside, sprout some roots and call him a little bush.
. He has me wrapped around his shaved "palm-tree" tail of his!!
I always have the groomer shave everything off, EXCEPT for the end of Jack's tail. There is always a little "plume" on top and I think that looks really cute on him.
The "human" part of the Schranz Ranch had a terrible start of the day, too. My father-in-law has a cold along with a nice sounding cough, so he has been staying in the bedroom so he won't spread it to others. My mother-in-law has a terrible neck in that it has the same nerve compression that I have, it's just in her neck. She has a Lidoderm patch on her neck and right now as we speak she is in the pharmacy aisle at Costco with my husband, asking him if he would give it out as a gift. Usually Costco sells things as gift quality and if it is, then get it. We shall see what he drags home. :0)
My hubby spent the morning bending over, with his head in the toilet, puking his guts out. He went to his friend's house as he always does and his friend offered him a cold drink. Frankie said "sure." He completely forgot about his new life rule that he can't eat cold food or drink cold liquids. For now. His stomach and intestines are so delicate from the surgery, it is difficult to give a a result right now. Life's a bummer sometimes! Good things really DO come to patients who wait patiently.
I opened my eyes this morning and just knew it was time to close them immediately! My lower back hurt so bad I thought I had sprained it some how. My legs are soooo bad, with shooting pain from the nerve compression areas that I can't even express it with words. I am using my TENS unit to try and get some relief somehow. My feet are no better, my big toes are kinda red and very sore. Probably from the store and walking around so long. I just can't walk around in stores anymore. Not until I lose weight and a lot of the pressure is gone from my lower back.
Well, tomorrow I go to the pulmonologist and see if anything is wrong with my lungs. I thing everything is right from that (lung) point of view. But you know how the insurance's point of view is. They are sure and very precise about things. I hope that everything is alright. :0)
Alrighty, well, I'm gonna make a simple dinner and go to bed. I hope that everyone is doing well and is enjoying the last little bit of fall. Can you believe that winter is almost here? December is almost gone and January is almost here? Love ya both!!! Stay warm!!
Until next time,
