Each week I think "maybe next week will be a little slower", but life seems to stay incredibly busy. I guess it is just part of how life has become for us because I feel very stretched most days! But despite that, nothing gives me energy faster than a warm, sunny day! We have had beautiful weather lately. I know I will be complaining about the continuing humidity soon enough, but for now I am soaking it up!
It was just a week ago that I was telling you about CarrieAnne, and I was asking for some healing vibes for her. Well, I'm still asking for them and hope you'll send them. But I'm cautiously optimistic that to me, there doesn't appear to be as much swelling in her right shoulder as last Thursday. I know you'll understand when I say that I'm afraid to say it out loud because I don't want to jinx it. However, I'm really hopeful that the medications and the chinese herbs together are making a difference for Carrie. Even if the lump isn't smaller, and she's still walking with a little bit of a limp, her appetite is back, she's no longer hiding and just seems to be herself which is what's important.
Our new addition Gus has settled in nicely. What a sweet, goofy and silly boy he is! I'm enjoying getting to know him, and having him around. Today hasn't been the best day for him because he's having problems getting onto his feet that keep curling under. But I'm hoping that it is just a bad day, and not a symptom that his degenerative myelopathy is progressing and tomorrow is a better day for our good ole boy named Gus.
