2021

Good Morning All! I hope this finds you well. We or rather Alvin slept from 930 last night until 500 this morning. For some reason I did not fall asleep until much later. Having the fans running makes me stuffy so I was finding it a bit difficult to breathe comfortably. I did get up and turn one of the three fans off. I was cool and had a blanket on but Mr. Alvin with his fur coat needs to have it cooler. Anyway, I am so happy that he slept so well. His next rounds of meds is at 545 so I figured as I did yesterday- write this post and then give him his meds. We can lay down for a bit after that. Such as my life.

Yesterday we had a walk about 830 in the morning which was great. He did well. About 230 we went again and although in the beginning he did well, on the second half I realized that perhaps it was too warm. Note to self. There was a breeze so initially it didn’t feel as warm as the reported temperature. I massaged his leg once we got home.

Our day to day will change dramatically once I go back to work but gratefully I am working from home.

Tomorrow the staples come out and I can finally breathe again. I will admit that they do freak me out. Also I am still debating as keeping upstairs again if only I can come up with a solution to keep him from jumping off the bed.

I dream of our life before this incident and wish it were back. Somedays it just seems so complicated. I want to go up and down the stairs when I wish. I want Alvin to follow me as I water the flowers on the deck. I want him to go upstairs at night with me to bed. I want a lot of things, I guess. If I’m listing wants, no mortgage would be awesome as well. We will carry on each day making progress and changing our old ways to new ways. They may not be perfect but I guess what is. Each day we make progress.

The sun is beginning to rise as it becomes light outside. A new day dawns.

Are you watching the Olympics from Tokyo? Those poor athletes that have their events outside in such humid hot temperatures. They are amazing.

Just about time for Alvin’s meds and then we shall lie down for a bit more sleep.
Perhaps tonight will be the night that we both sleep well.

Alvin just tried to be a lap puppy’s and realized that would not work.

Have a great Wednesday.

Continuing to live this life with kindness, , compassion, patience, understanding, love and gratitude.

Always Carol&Alvin
