Slipped off the blogging radar again. The whole month of February - just gone! How does that happen.
Thankfully nothing negative was involved. Just time getting away from me. Lets see what I can do to catch up.
I finished the knitted blanket I made for my grand daughter - it is a blanket she will use here - should we ever get back to normal times and she can visit again. I was glad to be done with it. It was huge and easy to work on in a mindless fashion, but I had other stuff I was itching to get to!
Then we had a little scare with this old man “grand child,” my daughter’s dog Milo! He had some breathing issues and she got an initial evaluation from her vet with an X-ray ... the vet thought he had lung tumors - probable cancer - and at his age, extensive testing was just not an option. Quality of life care was the recommendation ... and maybe some steroids to slow down the tumor growth and make him comfortable. Her vet wanted him seen by a vet internist to evaluate and make suggestions since he is already on pain meds for his back issues. That visit provided a different opinion, thankfully and it is not cancer. But without expensive testing and maybe some uncomfortable treatments involving anesthesia, (also not an option), a definitive diagnosis could not be given. At present we are just content that it is not cancer. Making him comfortable in his very senior years is now the goal.
And after the scare of maybe losing him, I found this charming picture of him when he wasn’t so gray. Now his is the wall paper on my computer screen. My daughter isn’t going to be the only one devastated by his passing. We just need to enjoy him now.
