First the news about my furry girl, Mandy.
Hubby is out of town so Maria (step-mom) and Lisa (sister) came over to help me. Lisa stayed at home with Peaches and Maria and I took Mandy to the vet to get her put to sleep.
SO HARD. But this Vet insisted on doing a kidney blood test and urine test first - just to make sure she can't be saved. So I said yes.
We waited for over 45 minutes for the results. - Oh and did I say that Mandy when she was healthy was about 60 lbs. Yesterday she was 40.
He finally came in with the results and said that the urine was fine - and the blood results he was not convinced that she had Kidney failure. He wanted to try to save her. He said to keep her there for 3 days with fluids and meds and by Monday we will see.
So there she sits in the doggie hospital. I called yesterday at 5pm when they were closing and they said she was stable and fine. So that is not worse - right?
When Maria and I left I stopped at Sprouts for a few healthy things, then to Red Robin for lunch. I had a burger wrapped in lettuce and some salad and a few fries.
Then I stopped at Hobby Lobby to get some yarn. I started a new scarf - this time for ME.
When we got there Lisa said Peaches was frantic the whole time running back and forth - in and outside, crying. Well not just crying but waling - WOO-WOO.
OMG - I just knew she would react this way without Mandy. As soon as she saw me she was fine, as long as I don't leave.
Lisa and I went for a long walk with Peaches down the horse trails and I showed Lisa the horses. She loved it. Peaches was so happy to go for a longer walk again, me too. I couldn't go more then 2 blocks with Mandy the past month - she was just too weak.
I came back and made Lisa help me make a batch of Chocolate-chip-cheesecake-cookies
Just FYI - for those of you that are new to my blog, I did NOT eat this while I was losing weight.
I only ate raspberries and blackberries (they are the lowest in sugar) and usually NOT tamales either.
BTW my sister has started W.W. and started a blog - so if you want to give her a little support - I'm sure she will appreciate it.
Have a good rest of the weekend.
This is PurpleRosy signing off...
Keep on BFC ' n :-)
