Living … One day at a time.

Hello, good morning.

It is a rainy overcast gloomy morning.

Well at least after we, I settled down last night we had a good sleep.

I wasn’t feeling well last night …..

We were up at 5:00 a.m. or actually a few moments before the alarm went off.

I gave Alvin 1/4 of his chicken and rice as I have been doing since last Sunday.

He has now finished one of his three pills and is taking two medications plus the imodium.

So update.

Last time he had action was on the way to the Vet mid Friday afternoon.

This morning he has had gas and clearly is uncomfortable.

We have been in and out since 5:00 a.m.

I am at a loss.

First diarrhea for days on end and now appears that he is constipated.

My poor boy.

I think that he is finally at the end of his rope.

I am not sure how much more of this that either of us can take.

In and out, up and down.

We are still waiting for the last test results to come in early this week.

I am hoping that he poops today ….. cannot imagine my work will be impressed if I take yet another day.

But on the other hand how can I leave him alone in this condition.

Thankfully I have vacation days.

 

Last night after dark we were on the deck …. on of our five million times.

I snapped a couple of photos of Mr. Alvin …

 

In the first photo he was just staring about ….

Second photo he just jumped up onto the deck sofa ….

Well all I can do is try to keep positive thoughts that today will be the day.

He will have his last chicken later this morning so I will have to go to the store.

ARGH, not looking forward to that but I must.

 

I just keeping thinking “please poop.”

I do know that it is not within his control.

He would like to go as much as I want him to, actually I am quite certain he would like to go more.

Poor guy.

 

 

Living in kindness and respect in every moment is all that we can do.

 

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 26th day of August, 2016.

Yes, Alvin it really is Friday.

I am sure by now most people are wondering if it really is true.

I was so certain that Wednesday was Thursday so added an extra day to my week.

Maybe not physically but mentally.

After all it is the mental condition that drives everything.

How you feel, if you can feel, what to do or not to do, to be or not to be.

Yes, of course physicality plays a role but the old adage “mind over matter,” holds true forever.

Until we evolve into something totally different it will always be mental over physical.

It is the way that people get through horrible physical tragedy.

Okay perhaps this is getting just a tad serious and it started out just talking about it being Friday.

Man, can I ever stray from the path.

I am always happy for the weekends but not because I do not like my job but because I get to spend more time with Alvin.

He is my sunshine for sure.

Not to leave out my amazing daughter or my great son-in-law or my grand-puppy Elton they are my never ending rainbow.

Speaking of rainbows last night when we were out for a walk we bumped into a lady walking with her dog.

We found out in about ten seconds his name was Noah and he was cute.

An older boy ….. the boys got along ….. Alvin and Noah…..there were a few barks ….. lots of sniffing.

The lady was smitten with Alvin.

She thought he was the cutest …… so I made sure that I gave Noah lots of compliments, fair is fair.

Well we continued to chat and walk.

We ended up walking in the rain …. just a nice rain not downpour.

A rainbow came out.

We both remarked.

After we parted ways and on our direct path to our house we saw the beginning and ending of the rainbow it was crystal clear.

The first one that I have seen all summer that I saw the start and end.

So beautiful..

Oh, I hear the geese honking away.

Well Mr. Alvin needs to go outside and I need to grab my Quinoa salad that I made for our office potluck.

I hope that you have an amazing day.

Happy Friday.

Special Hello to: all my family and friends, you rock.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 18th day of April, 2014.

Today is “GOOD FRIDAY.”

Happy Easter to those who celebrate with church and chocolate.

Enjoy.

As I look out of my office window I see snow and more snow.

Looks like winter again …..

Nice and white …. the covering is hiding the mud and muck from the melt.

Oh well it is April after all and I think it is one of those months that is very unpredictable.

It seems so quiet.

Part of that is due to the cold that I have and my head and ears being plugged.

It has been an interesting week being in this condition.

Definitely better now than earlier in the week.

Oh well …..

Perhaps the ground is covered with snow or maybe you have green grass where you are, no matter I hope that your day is wonderful.

Make a snow man or lay on the grass and gaze up at the sky.

Today is the beginning of the weekend, so enjoy.

I work at the store today so it will be interesting to see who is out and about.

Take care …..

Special Hello to: EVERYONE …… you are special.

Always, Carol and Alvin
