Woo Hoo! Pogo May Be On The Mend!

August 16, 2018

Good morning.  It was a warm sleeping night (temps in the seventies) so sleep came in patches.  Starting Saturday, night temps are supposed to drop down into the low sixties so we'll be able to catch up on lots of sleep then. 

My good news today is that Pogo actually ate some food twice yesterday.  Gosh, it felt so good to see him eating.  I had opened a small can of chicken, and he had half of it for lunch and half of it for his supper.  We'll still see his doctor later today.  I just want to make sure that Pogo is okay.

I didn't get very much done yesterday.  When my little guy is not feeling right, my whole day goes upside down.  It's amazing how our fur babies affect us this way.  Ring, ring, ring.  His doctor just called to check on Pogo.  She wanted to know if he was still not eating and if I wanted to bring him in earlier to see her.  I told her about what he ate yesterday and how he is now and she will see him later this afternoon at his appointment.  She feels good about the fact that he is finally eating and drinking more water.  Me too.

DIL Janet came by yesterday afternoon after work, and brought a bag full of tasty goodies for our dessert.  Oh my, which ones to eat!  There was a box full of deliciously wicked cake slices, and a box of gorgeous cupcakes.  We each had one of the cake slices, and later I had one of them for a late night snack.  Of course, I sent some out to Joe too. 

As for those cupcakes, I know that they are super delicious, so I just might not share them.  Hmmm, I'll have to give this a lot of thought.  I'm not a stingy person, but my goodness those cupcakes are light, heavenly bites of wicked good taste!  I tell myself this every time Janet brings these cupcakes, but then I end up sending half of them out to Joe.

I found an image on the web that I thought I'd share.  The message may be a bit brash, but it definitely gets the point across. 

It really bothers me to see folks texting and talking on their cell phone while they are driving.  It makes me wonder which innocent persons are not going to make it home to their families because of the accident that's going to happen.  So remember, when you are driving, put your phone away.  Hopefully, one of these days, we can pass a law making it illegal nationwide (to be talking and texting with your phone in your hand while driving), and punishable by more than a slap on the wrist.

My car has blue tooth, so I never have to touch my phone to answer a call.  If your car does not have this, you can purchase a unit very inexpensively. It will clip onto your visor and allow you to answer calls without touching your phone.  Remember, unless the call is extremely important, it can wait until you have stopped driving or until you get home. 

As for texting, that's a definite NO NO! while you are driving.  This really does kill people!

Now I want to finish my coffee and do a bit of blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

So glad to hear that Pogo is better. It's a good idea to still have the vet see him though.

Thanks God already some good news of Pogo. Now i hope the doctor also will have good news for you. Crossing fingers!!!!

I hate the people who have their phones in hand when driving. They do it in cars but also on bikes! I believe having a phone in your hand (at least in the car) is punished here by a fine, but how many drivers will be spotted and fined? I don;t think it will help a lot.
People just don;t realize the effect of it, having to split your attention between driving and phoning and/or texting.
Okay, I will try now to finish a little kit, so I will have something on my blog this weekend.
Have a lovely weekend, keep a close eye on Pogo(in fact needless to say that LOL), and let's hope he will be completely on the mend this weekend.
Big hug

Oh I hope and pray that your Pogo is on the mend! No texting and driving for this old gal! I also have Bluetooth and use it if the phone rings:) Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!
