Hello Friday...

I try to live my life one day at a time.
and if I look too far in advance, I get too stressed...

It's Friday and already I am exhausted.  Not because I am overworked, but
because of stress.  Stress comes in the form of Brutus and his paw.  Yes again it 
it all about the paw.  We took him to the vet yesterday to have the swelling looked at.
Well now the doctor says that maybe there is another bacteria involved; meaning an additional 
pill he has to take two times a day.  Thing is the pill is huge.  He takes half a pill twice a day.

There was no way he was taking the pill even after we cut the half into two pieces.
Last night I tried 5 times and he only took one piece of the two he had to take.  Yes, now I 
have something else to deal with.  He needs this pill.  This morning I cut the one pill into 8 pieces. 

 Meaning that every 12 hours he has to take 4 pieces.  means have to prepare 4 pills in 
4 pill pockets.  If it was difficult to give one piece now we have to deal with 4 pieces every
12 hours.  This continues for 10 days.  Additional to this he also takes his regular pill
which may be a permanent thing.  Plus the doctor recommended he take
a booster supplement to yeah, boost his immune system.

Well we have our work cut out for us.  Problem is that I'm not sure his pet sitters will be able to
manage all of this.  Problem right here. We travel quite often.  The vet without knowing all
the details put it best.  He said, "this little one is extremely attached to the two of you."

Yes, Brutus is extremely bonded to us as we are to him.  Question is, 
"did we do him a disfavor by becoming so attached?"

Not sure we would have it any other way. Stay dry all.
 Here in Florida rainy season has begun!
Wet! Wet! Wet!

 Life is a challenge everyday.
I get irritated, nervous, very tense or stressed, but never bored.

The more prepared I am, the more I'll be in control,
less nervous, less stressed and more focused...
