The final week of November wasn’t that much different from all the other weeks in November for me, except that the toll of the month was evident in my blue mood.
It seems the cumulative effect of the last few months seemed to find its peak as the week started and I was grasping for something to keep me going. I was overly tired, and it seemed that each one more thing was too much.
Fortunately, there were bursts of gratitude throughout the week and I never stopped being able to see the blessings and potential lessons from all of it.
While my wrist is continuing to heal, my doctor is concerned about the continued problems using it, and that the x-ray missed something. I will get a CT scan in the coming weeks to make sure.
The simplest of the doggie health issues was easily resolved with Duke’s abscessed tooth surgery, only to realize that night that Amore is struggling with a respiratory issue. I haven’t seen a respiratory issue since they came home from the pound with kennel cough as pups.
Both will stay on antibiotics for a little longer and I will get Amore in to see the vet to make sure it isn’t something related to his heart. Our vet said because he is a cancer dog, he is going to be picking up all sorts of things.
I finished out my week yesterday doing as little as possible, so that I could rest up for a new, busier month ahead. Between work and scheduling as many medical appointments as possible before the new year, I figured any advantage of energy is a good thing.
