God, did I not accomplish a lot today. There’s not a lot I can do about it now. The day is gone. I will chalk it up to a loss and try to do better tomorrow. Thank God for choir rehearsal tonight.

Here is my sweet Buddy resting. Poor little guy. I pill him all day long, it feels like. He is resting on my Brahms score, which is about resting in peace.

  1. You mentioned that Buddy is resting on a Brahms score which is about resting in peace.

    One cannot help but notice the luminous blue cross that shines above Buddy’s head, signifying his Christian orientation and his ability to slumber in the sanctity of the Lord.

    Pax vobiscum.

  2. Stacy, I’m not sure what’s happening; I emailed you a couple of times, I do not get a response. Everything ok with Buddy? Did you get my email from my vet husband?
    Best wishes,


  3. Mirela, I’m not sure what is happening because I answered all the email, and I just checked, the last email I got and answered was on the 12th. I didn’t get separate email from your husband, I think you forwarded (or cut and pasted) what he said. The medicine he recommended I try was the same my vet recommended, although a different dose.

    I’m worried about Buddy still. This new medicine isn’t changing anything yet, and it’s been a week. He’s supposed to be on it for 14 days though, so I’m still hoping.
