We had a mixed bag of weather here today. We had rain, wind, hail, and even a few sun breaks! Right now it’s partly cloudy with a few sun rays shining through but I am told that won’t last. I keep thinking spring weather will arrive any day but so far 'any day' hasn’t shown up. Soon…
Poppy went to the vet this morning. She had her foot re-bandaged and the doc said it looks good. I only have to keep a sock on it to keep her from licking it but it is healing up nicely. Her blood glucose was 80 and that is even a tad on the low side. That was real good news. It’s so hard to keep up with it with just the urine strips. Doc encouraged us to have some patience and not be so concerned with testing her all the time and trying to get everything perfect. He adjusted her insulin dosage and said don’t test her again for three days. Her body needs time to adjust and we just need to relax a little and not worry so much. He said we were doing fine for Poppy so that takes a lot of pressure off. Only two more antibiotic capsules to go so we’re glad about that. Whew!!

I was pleased to read that John was able to breathe on his own today. It’s been a rough couple of weeks for John and Nan with the unexpected crisis with John’s health. Stop on over and leave them some love.
Good news also from Shoeless Joe as he gets a positive report from the doctor.
Even more good news from the Princess and the Cowboy as Ron continues his treatments. Sharon normally writes this blog but Ron took over for a post earlier in the week. If you missed Ron’s post on “Playing the Front Nine” it is worth going back for the read.
And if you want to see some great posts about the Wallace’s adventures in Costa Rica, hop on over to The Odd Essay. Great pictures and stories.
I want to take a moment for a remembrance of my nephew. Tomorrow is the anniversary of the loss of our nephew to complications of diabetes. We were close to Scott and he lived with us for a while as an adult. He was an accomplished chef and a gentle spirit. He passed away in 2007 when he was still in his early forties. I am feeling for my sister today as I think the loss of a child is the most devastating loss of all. Laila, we will never forget and we are here for you.

Take care everyone. For those of you headed back to your summer digs, travel safe. For those of you staying put for awhile, enjoy your adventures.
