A little update

Dear friends,

Thank you so much for the nice comments. The Doxycycline is working to make me well, but yuk, the Doxycycline itself makes me feel sick. It's not so easy on the stomach.

How was your Memorial Day? Poppy put a couple of steaks on the grill for our supper and let's see, late afternoon we did cut a watermelon and eat a slice. Pretty exciting stuff going on around here.

We did promise to show you Eli's new hair cut. 



Leslie at The Animal House did a great job. He is cute as a button, but I miss that long beautiful coat he wore. He looks like a puppy again with those little clipped ears.



I miss those big furry feet, looking and sounding like he was shuffling around in bedroom shoes. 




You really need to see Eli standing to appreciate how much long hair was cut off. Can't seem to catch him on his feet.



Shaking hands with Poppy.




This old wheelbarrow makes a pretty good bed for you know who.

Better get busy. Today seems like Monday but I'm not getting much done. We were at the vet's office at 9:15 this morning. Dr. Davis wanted to follow up on Eli's Ehrlichiosis and finish giving him his booster shoots. It's a shame Eli and I can't see the same doctor...after all we both have the same illness and are on the same medication. I'm scared to death that I am going to swallow one of Eli's big pills and give him one of mine. : )

Have I even posted about the teeny tiny garden yet? I don't think so. Doc told me to stay out of sun between the hours of 10:00 am and 4:00 pm while taking this Doxycycline. But I'll be back with pictures of the little garden.

Thank you for visiting.

Love,
Henny

  9. I'm so glad you are beginning to feel better. My sister had to take a course of antibiotics several years ago and said that they made her feel worse than what they were fixing. But they did the trick in the long run which is what counts.

    Eli looks very spiffy with his new haircut and I bet he feels a lot cooler too with all that long hair off and gone.

    Take it easy during your recuperation-----it's easy to start trying to make up for lost time and put back your full recovery.

    1. Hey Vic. Eli acts like he feels better with his hair cut. We are supposed to have hot humid weather the rest of the week so we got it cut at the right time. I understand what your sister means. Antibiotics can make you feel horrible, but thank goodness they take care of the problem. I am feeling much better. My aches and pains are gone.

  13. You have a very different looking doggie now, but he still has his fluffy long tail! It is about time to give my pooch a trim, and she always looks so much younger. I'm glad you both are getting better. Have you ever tried taking acidophilus for your stomach when you have been on antibiotics? See if your doctor agrees. I am glad we don't have bad ticks inmy area, the fleas were bad enough until they came up with the medication to give dogs. I am really sending good thoughts your way, take care.

    1. Thank you Pam. I'm glad you don't have ticks too. Several yearsago we had a terrible bout with fleas. It was horrible and I honestly thought we would never get rid of them. I have two more days of antibiotics. The acidophilus would probably help get my system back to normal. The doctor and pharmacist both said not to drink milk four hours before or after taking a doxycycline pill. The calcium bonds with the Doxycycline. Isn't that weird! I love hearing from you!

  14. Funny - that was my first thought when I saw the photo of Eli: he looks so much younger!
    I imagine he'll be more comfortable in the hot weather.

  16. I understand about the Doxycycline. Some of these medicines puts you down instead of helping you.

  18. Even though Eli looks very cute with his summer haircut, I'm glad he got to keep that plume-y tail. Also glad to hear you are feeling a bit better.
