I got really disappointed this morning when I woke up because my pillow and towel were a bloody icky mess again, as was my face and neck. So gross, worrying, so I sent photos to Frank and headed in to the farm, where Scott cleaned it all up.
He said it is looking better, but there is still puss and seeping, so I called that report in to the surgeon. One more day of watching it and tomorrow will be the halfway point in the 10-day antibiotic regime. I am really really really hoping to not need to go back to the hospital, dang it.
The x-ray results are good — no infection in the bone, everything looks like it is knitting back together ahead of schedule, so that’s all good.
I told Jeremy that if he wants to know what he’s going to look like when he goes gray, he should see me now! I think I’m going to have quite a bit of gray, at least at the temples. I mean, I am almost 52, so to be expected. I’m enjoying watching how it changes the way I look. I’m still hoping for some actual streaks of white/gray that I can play with.
I also want to find a good site where I can try on hair styles. I’ve got the perfect blank template right now. Anyone have a favorite?
Yes, that’s a duck on my shoulder. Dory Doodle is such a little doll and most of what I’m doing around the farm is showing her off to tourists. I’m also starting clicker training, because why not? I need to get back in practice so I can start with Doc, too. When I was trying a bit with him, he spit out every single thing I tried as a treat — no thank you! Not food motivated at all. But he likes me, so I’m using attention as the reward, with some results. He’s such a smarty pants.
Speaking of dogs, have I mentioned how much I miss these girls? Oy. I’m busy scouting out places to take them, things to do. One more month, I can wait, but man it’s hard. Disa is going to turn 10 next week! I’ve been working on her birthday mosaic, and going through that album a lot. She was such an adorable little munchkin! I got told this morning that the Dog Fund is “trending” but I’m not quite sure what that means. Thanks so much for all of it.
