I have written several times about the problems Emma has been having walking. Last week, we found out she has arthritis in her spine and hips.
After my last personal update, I thought I would share news about Emma and Mr. Rogers.
This isn’t a happy personal update; in fact, it’s the saddest one I have written. Animals are wonderful friends. Watching them get old is so hard though.
It looks like spring is finally trying to spring. I won’t say it has sprung, because cool rainy weather may return this week. At least we have had a few nice days lately.
For a long time, Emma has been gaining weight. Even though she has always been lazy, I have been thinking her unwillingness to move has been getting worse. We have had her for more than four years, and we don’t have any idea of her age. Given that she had puppies before showing up in Mom’s yard, it’s likely Emma’s reasonably old. But today was scary.
This update has news about Ufi, Emma, my job, and some needed home improvements.
It has been another good week. Things are still going very well at work. I’m excited about what will be happening there.
This personal update has the following updates:
- An update on my battle with insomnia
- Thoughts about why I have trouble sleeping
- What’s new with the animals
- An online dating update
- A few other items
This is the last night of my vacation. Tomorrow, it’s back to work. I truly got a ton out of this vacation. I did things I haven’t been doing lately, I learned some important lessons, and I forgot about work for 10 days.
Last weekend, Mom noticed that Ufi had a sore on the inside of each of his back legs. I missed the sore, because he loves it when I scratch his tummy. She tried trimming the matted hair around the sores and we applied some Neosporin. We would have done more, but Ufi is a terrible patient. He cries at the slightest touch when it’s a touch he doesn’t want. The sore got a little better, but Ufi kept wanting to lick off the Neosporin.
