Can you believe we are in the week of Christmas? This year has just flown by. This weekend started to feel like Winter, very windy and chilly. It was a good weekend to stay indoors. I most likely won’t post again this year except to post my favorite books of the year with Steph and Jana on the 29th, so be sure and enjoy the holidays with your families. I’ll still be posting on Instagram so be sure and follow over there.
Saturday started off really well, I treated myself to a 60 minute massage. The stress of the last few months, really did a number on my body, she worked mostly on my shoulders and she told me how tight and knotted it was so I booked more appointments. It is so important to take care of yourself, even though it is hard to sometimes.
After the massage I was so relaxed but I wanted to finish up some small gifts I needed to get.
While I did manage to finish my shopping, I struggled to manage not to buy some stuff for myself. The wrap/poncho will come in handy now that it is colder here. I also got a nice crossbody bag.
Sunday afternoon I did a ton of food prep. Some spaghetti squash, taco meat, steak, and a zucchini onion and ground chicken with some tomato sauce mixture. I am ready for the week. Not shown: cut up some cantaloupe and some mashed sweet potatoes.
The biggest and hardest news from the weekend deals with Seamus. Saturday night he came in from the backyard and he was grumbling and rubbing his bum on the carpet. When I picked him up I noticed a great deal of blood from his crotch. I rushed out to the emergency vet hospital at just after 9pm. We left shortly after midnight and the diagnosis was an infection from a trauma (from a scratch or rubbing) or a tumor/cancer.
They sent me home with antibiotics and pain meds. I need to get him an appointment with my normal vet today for blood tests and an ultrasound to check the tumor and determine if it’s cancer. Since they couldn’t stop the bleeding because of the location I had to run out for some diapers/weiner wraps. It really helped since it kept it secure and seemed to be more comfortable for him.
I have a tentative appt with a surgeon in case the tumor needs to be removed and biopsied, I am hoping it won’t get to that point.
Please keep him in your thoughts and hope for the best. Needless to say I have been a blubbery mess and I just want my little muffin to be okay. Even with everything he has been through he still kept his smile. A lesson we could all learn and remember.
How was your weekend?
