On the down side, pain is worse this week. It's very challenging to eat. I'm hesitant still to call the pain clinic because quite frankly, I don't have time to go any sooner than next week's appointment. I guess I could call, but when I report that things are going worse, they always want me to come in. I don't know what the best solution is.
It's also very cold out. Very very cold. And that isn't helping anything, my orientation, my pain, my stress level are all effected. We won't get started on temperature challenges, because I don't want to go there.
Julio is much better, thanks to all of you who have asked. He's feeling good, and still fighting me on the pills. Dad showed me a way to get them down the boy's throat, but that seems to have increased the tension level between Julio and I around medication. It's frustrating, but was worth the try. Since I know Dad reads this, and I'd say it even if he didn't, I DON'T BLAME him, it was a good idea. Julio just doesn't think so. The peanut butter technique, suggested by the vet tech, is okay, but messy. Anyone else have ideas? He's not supposed to chew them, so I haven't put them in his food.
Well, it's getting late, so I'd better quick take a look at a few things and get to bed. Good night!Oh, one more thing. I will not be stopping my journalling. I don't need a contest to keep writing, this blog will keep going, hopefully with more of the wonderful things i learned from the LJ Idol contest. Hope that clears things up, I realize from the comments on yesterday's post that that wasn't clear.
Okay, now really, I'm going.
