Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself:
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be.  Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't
arrived yet.  I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it....

It seems like all we have been doing these last few months were doctors and vets visits.
Today for a change we won't have to do either of the two and boy what a nice change it is.
Today is like a "normal" day for a change.  Woke up happy and early to a beautiful morning.

Brutus' blood tests results came back yesterday and everything with his liver and kidneys
are fine.  No damage.  You can imagine our relief.  The paw is still the same, but we are 
working on it.  The medicines he has been taking are causing his temperature to sky
rocket so after a whopping $220 in medicines that was taken for a mere 13 days, we 
discover his body-stomach does not tolerate it.  At least we are happy to know why he has 
been feverish and not eating all this time.  Now we have something to work with and of
course we are hoping it will cure him.  We are always hoping.  What else can we do?

It's a nice change to feel excited about what the day holds for us.  I feel again
more optimistic and hopeful.  I look forward to seeing family and having a 
good time with them without the guilt.  I feel that all is possible because we were
told that Brutus has no liver damage, no kidney problems and no urinary tract infection.

They sure are happy.  Took their picture as they passed in front our our apartment.
I want to feel even for a day as carefree as these girls are.  Just for a while.
Well it's a beautiful day and I see no reason to not make it a fantastic one!

Have a great Wednesday everyone.
Remember it takes so little to be happy.

Yes, I'm happy.
No my life is not perfect...
