Today was Thursday 22nd September

Following a phone call from the hospital yesterday regarding a cancellation, Hubby was offered an appointment today for one of the tests our GP had offered to arrange.
This was to do with veins and circulation, all of which had been checked out some years ago when he was told nothing could be done to improve things. Having a new GP who is being very thorough, Hubby said that he didn’t think anything had changed, and today’s appointment confirmed that. However, it was an uptodate valuation so we know where we stand. He has another appointment for checking out his nervous system on Tuesday in the same department.
Maya was interested in all the comings and goings at the hospital and got some admiring looks and fuss from patients and visitors alike. I walked her round the grounds and car park, and although she wasn’t very good on the lead, she did sit and wait quietly and patiently when it mattered.
From there we went into town to switch some money around, get a snack and a cup of tea (hospital prices have almost doubled for coffee) and give Maya some more exposure to crowds.

Lunch today was therefore late with Hubby having a cottage pie out of the freezer and I made myself a tomato pasta using our tomatoes and onions. Lovely.

Hubby did a little repair for our neighbour on the framework of her raised vegetable beds so when he finished we did some washing even though it was quite late in the afternoon. Most of it has dried outside and the rest is only damp so should finish off indoors overnight.

It is day 3 of Maya’s oil capsules and Piriton and we can already see an improvement in her coat. Hubby has checked the sore patches on her belly and they are looking so much better as she isn’t scratching so much or nibbling at herself. She has also eaten quite well today so maybe the last sack of food was just a one off. We are putting something tasty or of a different texture in her meals though to break any possible monotony.

Take care everyone.

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.

    Hurrah! I am so glad Mayas sore spots are healing!
    Glad hubbys apt went well also!

  2. Good to know Maya is doing well and was a hit at the hospital. I recall a beautiful spaniel came by to visit after my surgery and all the patients loved seeing that little guy. Does wonders for the spirits during recuperation. Take care, Di. Enjoy the remainder of your day.
