and back to normal, well sort of. As what exactly is normal?
It's been a heck of a month so far. What with dd wedding, which went off without a hitch and was just lovely. To having my mam, step-father and brother here for nearly three weeks. Of course that visit was made stressful with my step-father going into hospital for three days.
They arrived back in Britain yesterday morning and my step-father got to see his doctor later that day and she has put in a request for him to go and see the cardiologist. He will need a stent put in, as the pain he is still experiencing is due to one of the blockages. Of course like most men (you ladies out there will understand this) he never listens and despite being told to take it easy he hasn't and isn't. So only time will tell what's going to happen next with him.
Took Molly back to the vet's to see about the couple of lumps and she said they are in the lymph nodes and are a little smaller than they were. So we are going to take the wait and see approach and I'll pop back into the vets again in the New Year. Mind you Molly is in the "dog house," at the moment, and is suffering and getting no sympathy from me!!!
My mother bought four mini packs of chocolate turtles, I think there will only be around 4 chocolates per box. Anyhow she had them in a plastic bag in their bedroom. We went out and Molly went snooping. She ate the first box in the bedroom, carefully taking them out of the box and unwrapping them. The next box she took down to the bottom of the stairs. Then she thought she would get comfortable with the third box and opened and ate them in front of the fire. By then she must have decided she was full, but thought she should "bury" the individual chocolates around the house to snack on later!!
She did have the runs but really only the one time. She still managed to eat her supper that night, despite her stomach being bloated. She is now pooping normally but it does have candy wrappers in amongst it!!! I couldn't be mad at her, but I refused to give her the bone I had bought that day for her. I put it in the drawer and she now keeps going to the drawer as she can smell it!!! She's a character that Molly!!
So now the house is all quiet. I got up on Thursday morning and came down stairs and thought I wonder if my mam had put the kettle on for a cup of tea. Both dh and I are pooped though as it feels as though it has been none stop for a while now. Plus the stress of dealing with the hospital and insurance was the icing on the cake as they say.
Our plan is to take things easy up until Christmas to wind down and hibernate. I still haven't made a start on my Christmas shopping yet. I am up to $56 in my Christmas food pot which should no doubt pay for the Christmas Day lunch, but want to add another $24 to it to be on the safe side. I need to clean the house from top to bottom as well. Oh and get back into my blogging again. I feel as though I haven't blogged in months.
I hope to start visiting and commenting on everyone's blog starting this weekend as well to catch up with what you have all been up to.
