Today is Friday 20th November

How is your day going dear friends?
It’s chilly and overcast now, but was quite pleasant first thing so after breakfast we walked up into town. This is about a mile each way and one of the last walks we had with Maggie at the weekend. We have walked every day since and our trip today was to find a photo frame to house a snapshot of her until we can get a picture done on canvas. We have several to choose from and don’t know if this one will be the final selection.
I’ve put it on the piano alongside the sympathy card we received from the vets yesterday. Such a nice personal touch at such a sad time. We’d taken up the unopened food earlier so didn’t know about it, though I did thank them all for their kindness on Monday.
The Babies are now dry and put back together, sitting on the dresser in the bedroom.
Grandad has a paw round each one. The one with the big eyes and rather shy was originally a gift from a dear friend when we were on the boat which Maggie took a shine to, and the other russetty brown bear is the last baby we bought for her.

Hubby’s INR has plumetted and so he is on tummy jabs for the next few days with another appointment on Monday. He is not pleased as he said he thought the amended dosage last week was too low, but being a new nurse, she didn’t listen. Great.

Lunch today is cheese and onion pasties with wedges and beans. We’ll have our third portion of stew as soup for our final meal around 4pm. Timing is paramount with meals so we are still on a learning curve, but making progress as Hubby has put on a few pounds.

Keep safe everyone.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I love the photo and frame. The babies look comfy. Glad to hear a hubby has put on a few pounds well done you both. It a shame that the nurse didn’t listen to hubby the old adage is true, ” you know your own body better than any nurse or doctor”

    Such a heart wrenching post. I love the photo in the frame and the lovely card from your vets and all the babies together. πŸ™‚
    It takes time – though I still cry for LM.

  4. Darling photo and the frame is just right! The bears hold vigil. I’m glad your hubby is improving, even through the trial of idiotic ‘know it alls’ who still have to learn the value of LISTENING. My sympathies are with you, as you know. Take care of each other!

  5. Aw, that picture of the babies made me tear up even more than thinking about poor Maggie (and you). Hugs, Di,

    • Thank you. We had another card and some flowers today. Both of us have had to check ourselves as we almost called her for cheese and titbits. We are keeping to her routine and walking at times when she’d want to go out. It’s a comfort of sorts.

    Awe Di! My heart goes out to you every time I think of sweet maggie. I am glad the vet was kind and sent you a card. My vet did that too when I put my last dog to sleep. Its a nice personal touch. Hope hubby feels better soon!
