2021

Good Morning ALL. How are you today? Today we celebrate my longest friend’s birthday and that would be my sister. We have been together since 1959. She is the best. Wishing my sister the best day. She also shares this day with two more special women. My friend Diana whom I have known since the early 80’s and my neighbour down the street Arlene. Both incredible friends and I would like to wish them a very Happy Birthday.

This is an odd day as today is Alvin’s ultrasound. I felt guilty going to the bathroom a few minutes ago because he cannot. They want him to have a full bladder and he was not allowed to eat anything after 10:00 p.m. last night so I made sure he basically had a good late snack just before ten. I went to bed at late as I possibly could hoping that he would sleep in a bit later. Sleeping is better than wanting food and wanting to go bed and you are not allowed. I feel so bad for him. I think it was about 3 a.m. when he first got up and went outside and did both, I also gave him his glucosamine chew. We then headed back to the sofa. He woke up I think about 5:00 and then kept trying to get me up until we were up just before 7:30 a.m. I thought the later / longer we slept the easier it would be on him. I am hoping that he doesn’t have to poop but if he did at 3:00 a.m. and has not ate …. he should be okay. This breaks my heart. We are getting a ride to the vet which is nice. He looks sad. I guess he realizes that something is off the norm for sure. I am keeping positive thoughts and energy for my little guy that all is well inside him. He has not had blood in his pee for at least two days now. So hopefully that is a good sign.

The sun is rising, there are clouds in the sky and it looks mixed up as I am feeling. I am happy that it is my sister’s birthday and two of my friends but then I am concerned about Alvin.

Well I will go now and wish the girls Happy Birthday on Facebook and then hop into the shower. Our ride will pick us up at 9:45 a.m. and I hope that the company that does the ultrasound will come to the clinic this morning. They gave a window of 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. …… not sure why it could not be an actual set time, one would think so with the money they are charging. I am going to voice my concerns. Why our beloved pets through this. I hope it is this morning. Oh, I hope it is this morning.

Continuing to live with kindness, respect, compassion and patience.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Me and Alvin in the beginning of our lives together.
