Brutus Again...

Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. 
Just breathe, and have faith that everything will work out for the best...

Back from Mexico.  Like I have mentioned it was a good time.  Made more special 
of course because my sister and our nephew was there with us.  As Arvid said to them,
 "you are welcome anytime you want."  It made me happy because they all get along really well.

We made it home and Brutus as usual was over excited to see us as we were to see him.
All Arvid kept saying was, :I wonder if he will be waiting at the door for us?"
He was.  He always is.  He saw us and just got all excited running and running.

Then we saw his paw.  it looked BAD!  Still looks BAD.  Made both of us 
very sad to see this.  Seems that no matter what we do the paw just will not get 
better.  This is one of the things that stresses me more than anything.  Stresses
us both.  We looked at him, picked him up, carried him around like the baby he is,
and just baby talked him.  This Arvid did and he does it all  the time.

Before leaving for Mexico we had already decided that we would take him
to another vet.  Now for a third opinion.  Made us feel better knowing we were 
at least doing once again all we can for him, but after seeing the paw, we 
decided to go one step further.  Time to see a specialist.  This is not as easy as 
I thought.  Like humans, we had to call his vet.  get a referral and of course them 
make the appointment.  Like with people, the waiting "line"to see the specialist 
is also something we have to deal with.  No immediate appoints, but at least in two weeks
Brutus will be seen hopefully by someone who will be able to give us some 
answers.  Poor kitty just takes it and never complains.  I help out by always putting 
a cold damp clot with antibacterial soap as was recommended by another of his vets.

Breaks our hearts to see him this way.  I have no clue what else I can do.
It goes without saying that Brutus is our reason to smile and 
to be happy.  If he's not doing good, there is no way that I am happy.  With this
specialist in sight, we are hoping for the best and for an answer to why this is happening.
Arvid and I always are hoping for the best and for answers.  Maybe this time we will be rewarded.

Last night we went to see Bonnie Raitt in concert. Pretty disappointing
is all I can say.  Even so, Arvid and I managed to enjoy ourselves. 
There is no way yo can go to The Seminole Hard Rock Casino and no have a good time.

Wishing you all a good day.
Remember, sometimes when you lose you still win in the long run.

Where love is concerned, too much is not even enough...
