Good morning. It's rather early, but pretty soon a crew should be showing up here to repave the front of my driveway. Sad to say, it rained last night, so I'm hoping that doesn't mess things up for this morning.
Well I took Pogo to the emergency room (at his hospital) yesterday morning. He was checked over and had some tests done on him. I'll have to wait for a phone call sometime today to let me know how the tests came out. Meanwhile, Pogo is taking medicine twice a day for five days. Once his test results are in, we'll know if he needs any more tests or a change in medicine, etc.
Pogo is also being put on a bland diet. Cooked white rice, boiled chicken, etc. Hmmm, we'll have to see how that goes. So far, he's refused most of everything I offered him to eat. I have a couple of adorable photos of my little guy from yesterday. Lately, I've been using my walker often, and Pogo fits right in the little basket that I bought for him.
I have my car radio set to a country music station, and the other day I heard a Willie Nelson song for the first time. The words to the song struck me funny because this is how I have felt some mornings. The title of the song is "I Woke Up This Morning Still Not Dead." This is a photo of my radio when the song was playing.
I guess the song just makes one realize that waking up in the morning is a gift not to be taken for granted. If we have food and clothing, a roof over our head and we're here to see a new day, then we are really blessed.
I'm keeping a watchful eye on the front yard, waiting for the work crew to start showing up. Meanwhile, I think I'd best get dressed before they do get here. I did get one request for a gem quick page for Sapphire which I'll work on soon. Anyone else have a request? Let me know.
Now I really must get dressed. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
