The topic: DaNiece update


She's lost over four pounds since her last visit. Which was over five years ago. She's sixteen years old now.

The vet was very happy with her bloodwork. Very happy. There were a few values that were a little high, like her liver values, but at sixteen years of age, the vet isn't overly concerned.

She does have bacteria in her ears, got medication for that. And to help with her diarrhea, she's getting immodium for two days and metronidazole for two weeks.

The vet gave her fluids today and I'm supposed to give her fluids each day. Hopefully, this will help her get over this diarrhea bump she's on.

Oh, and her thyroid level is up, I have to up her meds for that.

I can do this.

And she should start feeling better tomorrow, when the fluids she got today kick in. The vet said if these meds don't help, it could be IBD or cancer. If it's one of the two, my money is on the IBD.

But the news wasn't horrible/awful. It was actually good.

The topic: So, I speak of my garden.


Here are some photos of my garden. Clicking on a picture will take you to a bigger photo in my family album; clicking on that picture will open a larger photo.

The alyssum. The first photo was after the seeds started coming up. This was the first flower. The second picture was taken this morning.

Then we have catnip. Taken when the seeds started to break ground at the end of April. The second one was this morning. Spotty was having a little morning treat.

Then there's the corn.

And, last but not least, the tomatoes.

The tomatoes surprise me. The ones on the left are Indigo, the second row is beefsteak and the ones on the right are cherry tomatoes. The cherry tomato plants are huge! All three varieties have blossoms on them.

I will be planting more peppers. I pulled a bunch of weeds yesterday and watered thoroughly. I will probably plant seeds tomorrow since the weather has warmed up.

This is the same side of the yard where there's a birdfeeder hanging from the house. There are also a few sunflowers in the garden. I was watching the birds with interest. I've seen a couple of them on the ground, in the plants and they come out with worms. I think this is pretty cool because the birds can take care of the worm problem and the plants should do better without getting eaten by bugs.

I gotta say I love the music in Marvel Studio movies. Turn up your speakers. I want to see this movie just for the soundtrack!
