I am so grateful that there are not just empty chairs out there.
Your kind thoughts and comments have cheered me no end...
We are trying hard to take care of Pepper with TLC,
with visits to the vet, medications and antibiotics.
She looks content here but we are certainly not out of the woods...
we are waiting to see if her digestive system will start working properly again and that the vomiting will cease.
If it does not kick start this weekend we will need to take her back for more X-rays as she may have eaten something that does not show up on an X-ray and is causing a blockage...
it could be a piece of string or an elastic band.
I've resorted to "self medicating with food"...
I know I shouldn't but I am in need of comfort.
Cheese and onion jam on crackers with my afternoon tea.
(I had 5 of these tipping the scales and my WW points!)
I recognize my weakness and know I am "stress eating."
Seeing as how I need to keep close tabs on Pepper and stay at home most of the day
I have been reading two books at a time...
Louise Penny's The Beautiful Mystery as well as Adam Gopnik's Paris to the Moon.
Two books deserve two Ferrero Rocher hazelnut chocolates don't they?
My friend and I walked 10K yesterday and it felt so good to get out.
I will try and pop out for a 5K walk at some point today...
I am having trouble leaving her even for a half an hour.
I'm looking down the road
hoping that Pepper will rally and I am trying to visualize in my mind that she will be well.
Pets share our life and have a special, almost divine, place in our family.
They give our days so much JOY...
we share so much grief and sorrow when they are not well
or no longer with us on this earth anymore.
Thank you again for your comments.
I have read them all and have felt immense support from your kind words.
I will post an update on Pepper as soon as there is a change...
