Wow Mary, I am sorry about all of this. With everything else you had going on to boot!!!! Good Lord when will it end for you? I will write you a note. I am truly sorry I didn't follow up on everything you are going through.
Jan, but you did.... And, I appreciated it. I loved the recipe for the dogs. I have used the hamburger/rice diet before (the girls LOVE it!) when they have had tummy upsets, and I have used just eggs (scrambled) also, but I had not heard of that particular combination. The morning Maya was struggling so badly, (and it turned out to be a bad bladder infection ....her first ever) I cooked scrambled eggs for the girls even though Maddie was fine... They do like to have the same thing to eat!
But, at that point I was not sure what the problem was exactly with Maya until I combed the yard upon light of day. Poor thing had to go outside about 5 - 7 times in the night. It was that next day that we did the blood test to see if something awful was fueling the bladder infection and that is when we got the poor prognosis based on her lab reports. She is finising up an anti-biotic for the infection and that is much better. And, she is still animated when we are petting her... and she still gets very excited when she sees her leash even though th walks are shorter. We are still waiting to get the full report from the Veternarian Oncologist regarding recommendations, etc. She is a love. I call her "Maya Love"....and, her little sister is a sweetheart, too, for sure. We are hoping that little sister's eye is better and will find out tomorrow if it is healing properly.
And now Kidney stones. Poor guy. I have never had them. I never, ever, want them.
And now daughter has a bladder infection. Geeeeezzzz.....
Ah well...I am hanging in there. I got a free couch from a neighbor over the weekend, so I was able to help out a friend who needed a couch... I gave her my old one. The new (to me) couch is very different from what I had in the living room and it is a nice change and just in time for company (daughter's college roommate coming for the first time ever this Wednesday).... so, do you think if I do something nice for someone things might get better here? Here's hoping :)). I am supposed to have next week off work, so I will have time to help everyone heal.
OK... talk about "off-topic" from Kidney stones to dogs to couches. As I said, Once every 3 years? Not a bad record.
