Where I've Been
I can't believe that it's almost been two months since my last blog post. Nor can I believe that it's October already! So, where have I been?
Taking a blog break. Sometimes you just have to walk away.
We've had a very stressful two months during the time that I've been gone. Althea went in for her annual exam: check up, shots, blood work. Since she is getting up in years, we do a senior screening. Her lab report came back and it didn't look so good.
Her thyroid levels were up, so her doctor put her on hypothyroid meds. She started getting and looking sick. We took her back in to have her blood checked again. This time her thyroid was fine, but the meds were messing with her liver and those numbers were up. So we took her off the meds and took her back after a few weeks to recheck her numbers. This time the white blood cells were extremely high. And yes, I have been researching online and know that this can mean a few things. We're waiting to see what the slide shows.
She looks and feels fine. She's eating as much as normal. She's going out to the garden with me. She's napping in the laundry basket, something she used to do years ago. To look at her, you wouldn't know that something is stirring.
The fall garden is in and growing. The weather is wonderful. It's the perfect Fall.
