First up, Charlie’s progress. He’s walking better and he’s able to go up the doggy steps. Plus he isn’t coughing nearly as much. So I will continue with the acupuncture treatments for now.
I will also be asking the vet about CBD oil for Charlie.
I tried the CBD pills for my neck and instead of helping it made the pain worse. Just not sure it works on nerve pain. Lit me up like a Christmas tree.
But it sure does my heart good to see my Charlie boy run on the patio and bark at the squirrels!
Isn’t he handsome with his haircut?
He is sleeping longer at a time and isn’t as restless with the Trazadone. He still wakes up 2-3 times at night. But if he didn’t, I would. He isn’t urinating inside so I guess that rules out his kidneys, as someone mentioned.
He also seems to be a bit more affectionate with Ivy. He is tolerating her more. She can touch him or put her paws around his neck and he doesn’t freak out.
All this means less stress for me. And I’m very thankful for that.
This morning I noticed that a cucumber had fallen on the vine behind the pot. So I might get one cucumber out of the plant this summer. It doesn’t seem to be producing more blooms.
And there are more peppers on my sweet pepper plant. I already picked one.
I finished Bloodline on Netflix. I’m fairly certain I missed some of the episodes. Not quite sure how that happened. But suddenly Kevin had his son and I didn’t see an episode where the baby was born.
I completely missed Meg leaving home and what ended up happening at Eric’s trial. Plus suddenly Roy was gone and I saw nothing build up to that.
Then I tried to go back in the episodes but I haven’t quite figured that out yet.
But I still have Ozark and there are more shows I’m looking forward to watching. I just wish I’d tried Netflix before now.
It beats cable TV by a long shot in my opinion.
And the network TV shows the past few years have had nothing that appealed to me.
After I took Charlie to the groomer yesterday, I came home and quickly cleaned everything. Even the ceiling fans and some vents. Also changed the bedding.
I wanted to get the disruption of dust out of the way before he came home. Poor Ivy was sneezing though.
When I dropped him off, I had a load of instructions for the groomer, Kim, who I’ve been taking him to the whole time I’ve lived in Tulsa.
If he has any trouble, his vet is right across the street (which I know she already knew.) The less fragrance in his shampoo the better. I’d appreciate it if he could be groomed early so he can come home and have his diuretic and other heart meds earlier.
I’m sure I sounded like a nervous new mom or something!
I think once you’re a mom you never really stop being “momish.” It sometimes just gets transferred to pets or people.
And if you’re a mom of an adult child, maybe you have had trouble knowing when to let them do their own thing without your input.
They’re always still your child, grown or not. And sometimes it’s difficult to keep your opinion or your advice to yourself. I’ve tried very hard to stop myself from doing that. Heavens, my youngest daughter is 40 years old!
I’m having lunch with her today. We’re meeting at our favorite Mexican restaurant again.
Last week they went to Seattle to visit friends and Andrew had his first plane ride.
