What I'm Thankful For

Well, one of the things is that my pet, Miss Daisy, is hanging in and holding strong. It's been about five months since she was diagnosed with chronic renal failure.

Both Christine and I have learned to administer subcutaneous fluid treatments, which she requires daily. I wondered at first if it was worth it, but much of the time she is her usual self.

On her last vet visit the levels they test were holding OK. We coax and work with her to keep her eating, and I'm conscious--as we should all be with all interactions--that the time I have with her is finite. I try not be be aggravated if she wants attention or to sit on my keyboard or my lap.

That's life. This is a little video diary of Dee in her day-to-day environment. It's a wonderful world. (I'm playing Enya's "China Roses," under the at-home version.)

It's always worth it. Of all the relationships we have, I think the most important are those we forge with our pets, for those truly become a meausre of our character.

That's a good thought, Stewart. Happy Thanksgiving.

Awww. So sweet. I still kind of pine for a pet, myself, but then I realize I have dozens of birds, some raccoons, possums & at least one rat. :)
