No Point In Worrying Before The Event


Nice sunny day today especially lovely especially after the horribly dreary dark miserable day yesterday.

Sadly did not go out as Richie had to take Spike and Marleen to the vet for their yearly injections.

We were both tense about the appointment as Richie was going to discuss Spike with           the vet.

His back legs have become increasingly wonk these last two weeks, up to then some days they were and others not.

The vet recognised Spike’s symptoms right away and wants Richie to go back on Monday when he will take a blood sample and send it to the lab.

It could be one of two things which can be treated with medicine, which will not cure the problem but will ease the symptoms.

The treatment will give him three to four good years, which would be excellent for us all especially for Spike.

Felt so worried while Richie and the dogs were at the vets imagining all sorts of things, it was a relief to hear Richie’s report.

Now we have to wait until Monday and the blood test, hope the vet’s theory is correct and it is one of the two treatable things.

Going to try and put it out of my mind until after the weekend, no point in worrying before the event.

Today is Friday and I am going to enjoy this evening and the weekend, live in this moment not the ones to come.

I hope Spike will be okay. Maybe it's just arthritis, that can be helped with some medicine.
Try not to worry Herrad. Have a good weekend.
Cheers,
KAren

I hope it's nothing serious for Spike.

Stress can kill us if we let it, but it's hard to keep our lives stress free.

Have a good weekend.

Hi Donna,
We hope so too, we will find out Monday I hope.
I am doing very well right now with not worrying and enjoying the weekend.

Hi Missie,
Hope so too, hope it is treatable like the vet thinks it is.

Hi Rhapsody,
Nice to see your comment, thanks for coming by.
No need for excuses life is like that it takes you along with it and before you know it time has sped by.
I have not been en emailing much, post every day and spend more time sitting so away from my laptop.

Hi Webster,
I told him and he rolled over and wanted his tummy tickled.
You are right he makes us very happy.

Thanks to you four dear friends for coming by, good to see your comments.
Have a pleasant weekend.
Love,
Herrad
