Good Day...

On a day when you're tired, it's important to just say good morning to everyone so they're kind of aware that it's gonna be a good day...

Yesterday was the first day in a long time I did not have to rush Brutus to the vet, go to the hospital or take Arvid to a doctors appointment.  It was nice to just wake up and not have to spray Brutus with his medicine nor trick him into getting into the carrier for a trip at the vet.  Happily no more hospital for us.  Today hopefully will be one of those days as well.  So far all is looking good.

I woke up to a beautiful sunrise and it was relaxing to not do anything and to not have to think what different chores were waiting for me.  It was also nice not to be awake at 5am.  Yes, I am now also sleeping better as is Brutus and Arvid.  Brutus always finds it most comfy to sleep as close to Arvid as possible. 
Slowly things are getting back to the way they used to be.  We are still concerned about Brutus' paw.  The swelling is still there and the doctor said that if it did not go down by next week we might have to consider reopening the paw, yes cutting him open again and do another culture to check for bacteria.  I hope it does not get to this.  I am more worried about Brutus than I am for Arvid.

Arvid is healing and recovering everyday , Brutus I'm not sure.  In the meantime, Brutus seems to be happy and very active as usual.  We are just happy to see him play and run around.  The paw does not bother him, it just bothers me that it is still swollen.

Yesterday was also the first time in over a month I had a few hours to do something for me.  What better way to pamper oneself than a manicure and pedicure.  It felt really good and for a change I had some time to allow the girl to give me a foot massage.  I felt like a new person already.

Right now I feel positive that everything is going to be all right.  It has to be.  I feel more rested and  better prepared to face what lays ahead.  Arvid continues on a weekly trip to the doctor to have his blood tested.  Brutus has a break from the vet until next week.  This is all good.

Soon Arvid's brother and Siv will be here.  Arvid says he will be doing everything to be better so we can spend as much time with them as possible.  Yes, he is very happy his brother is coming.  He says it's the best medicine.  I am also looking forward to seeing them.  We always have such a good time together.  It will also be nice to go out a bit and enjoy each others company.  Always a relaxing time with the four  of us.  Relaxing...., sounds so good now.
Sometimes we tend to take the smallest things for granted.

For now, wishing you all a good Saturday.

Life is very interesting... in the end, some of your greatest pains, become your greatest strengths...
