Fragments

The information below was written my my husband and sent to all our boating friends and our family about a month ago. Here is part two, written by hubby, on this continuing saga.

The Saga of Old Dogs – Part II

Little Bit went to the Doctor’s office yesterday for a blood draw for liver enzymes. As you recall she had one enzyme that in December was 3,000 and in January 4,000.

When we had the big jump in January we completely stopped her anti-inflammatory medicine Previcox and began a daily Veterinarian medication plus Vitamin E. The result of the loss of the anti-inflammatory caused increase pain in her joints which led to some unpleasant episodes watching her back end collapse at various times. Nevertheless, she learned how much movement she was able to do and is showing signs that she can deal with the loss if the anti-inflammatory and generally stay on her feet.

The test showed a double of one enzyme that the Doctor seemed to be calling ACL. This was a concern to him but he cautioned that it could have been a problem with the testing process. When we included in the conversation that we had stopped Previcox he concluded that was the reason for the increase. The better news is that the four letter enzyme starting with A???, that was in the 4,000’s has dropped back to 3,000.

Given that Little Bit is feeling fine, out every day sticking her nose in gopher holes, barking up cats and wagging her tail for love from all the neighbors, the Doctor recommends continuing with the monthly blood tests and monitoring her progress.

We thank the Lord every day for the joy she has brought to our lives.

The Female Urologist

An old guy goes to his doctor for his physical and gets sent to the Urologist as a precaution. When he gets there, he discovers the Urologist is a very pretty female doctor.

The female doctor says, “I’m going to check your prostate today, but this new procedure is probably a little different from what you are used to. I want you to lie on your right side, bend your knees, then while I check your prostate, take a deep breath and say, ’99’.

The old guy obeys and says, “99”.

The doctor says, “Great”, now turn over on your left side and again, while I repeat the check, take a deep breath and say, ’99”.

The old guy obeys and says, ’99’.”

The doctor said, Very good. Now then, I want you to lie on your back with your knees raised slightly. I’m going to check your prostate with this hand, and with the other hand I’m going to hold on to your penis to keep it out of the way. Now take a deep breath and say, ’99’.

The old guy begins, “One, two, three…”

You don’t stop laughing because you grow old. You grow old because you stop laughing!

Wednesdays Question

It’s Wednesday so that means it’s question time. It’s time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We’d all like that.

So here’s this weeks question: If someone wrongs you do you get even or do you eliminate them from your life?

I used to be more of a get even type, but I don’t care anymore. If you’re a close family member or friend I’ll say something about how I feel. If it’s an acquaintance then you’re pretty much out of my life. I will not go out of my way to engage that person.
