I have had an eventful week with our beloved dog, Sugar and her diabetes, and various other family related issues. It is all under control now, or I should say moving in the right directions. Life happens. You deal with it and move on to the next thing.
Sugar is home today and we are armed with new food, syringes, insulin and a strict feeding schedule! Sugar can no longer have dog biscuits, dog chews, or any of her other favorite snacks. It makes sense to me that Sugar will only eat twice a day and then receive her insulin after eating. 7a.m. and 7p.m. are the feeding and dosing times. This way if she is not munching on other snacks, etc. her sugar will not spike or get too low. Instead, we will have her on a nice steady schedule.
I had to learn how to give her a shot today. I was scared to death! I made it through and Sugar still loves me! Spice is not happy about all of these changes. We have always fed the dogs with food in their bowl for them to eat when they were hungry. Now, Spice will have to adhere to Sugar’s scheduled eating habits. Change is good and we will all adapt in time. Time heals everything.
Sugar – happy to be home. Lounging in front of the fan! This girl has no shame!
The other thing I managed to get done this week was a doily I had been working on for months. I try to work on my book, my blog, and my crocheting every day. Some days that does not work, but what the heck – retired means you set your own schedule! I get it done as I get it done.
This doily is called, “In the Vineyard.” Perfect for my wine drinking hobby which I think I will be partaking in later this afternoon.
I am going to leave this doily on my dining room table as it is quite large. However, I do like the detail of the grapes and grape leaves. I am working on an entirely different piece now that I will share at a later date. Thanks for cheering me up through my crazy week. I enjoy your company!
