Tracy fixed my smoke detector. Hallelujah! It is amazing what can happen when you get out a ladder and actually read the small print on the damn thing. Turns out there was a battery compartment with a little labeled door. Oops. Tracy managed to jimmy it open and it stopped beeping. JUST. IN. TIME.
Canyon is on steroids and seems to be acting almost totally normal. The vet said they would help her feel better temporarily, but it isn't going to solve anything. But, it makes me feel good to see her acting better. She has been eating whatever food I give her since coming home from the vet yesterday. She has more energy and is foll lowing us from room to room. I feel very sad still, but I think the initial shock has worn off. The vet said that is his opinion closer to 75% of these tumors are malignant and there isn't anything that can be done. So, I feel confident that we are making the right choice in opting out of surgery for her. I'm intrigued by MommyK's comment about Chinese herbs. How/where do I find them?
John isn't going on another trip until about a week from now. He'll be at the guard some days, but he will be home every night for 6 nights. This is always good news for me! My days have a much better rhythm to them when I know he'll be coming home around dinner time.
Choir starts back up on Monday. I can't wait.
Jo Anne (John's mom) is coming up on Tuesday for a couple days to help us celebrate John's birthday. I told Becca that when "Gee Gee" gets here we're going to make a birthday cake for Daddy. So, every day she asks if we get to eat birthday cake. I keep saying "We have to wait for Gee Gee to get here!"
I am planning to go to Austin for a three day weekend next weekend. Suddenly, though, the flights have filled up. So I hope I can find a flight down there! Damn spring breakers ruining my travel plans.
So, we have lots to look forward to and this week will be busy (which is good for me. I like busy.) What are your weekend plans?
