Funny Story

Here is a funny story from my kidney cat support group!


We can all use a little humor, however we come by it. 

I am in week #2 of that nasty flu-thing that's going around:
all-over body aches, sorest of throats, mouth hurts, worst headache, killer sinuses, 100 degree fever (*4* days of that!!!), and coughing up stuff all colors of the rainbow, but most of which had the color, size, & texture of LeSueur peas (which, rest assured, I will never eat again).  No, my being sick's not funny; it's the background.  And *yes,* I am on LOTS of meds, some of which are even helping.

Anyhow... through all this, I've been ferreting around in my bedside table for my digital thermometer, & was happy to have found it (though not at all happy at what it read, though not surprised, given how utterly miserable I had been feeling).

It was only yesterday, however, that I looked more closely at the thermometer *case,* where I saw, in big black magic marker letters:  "CAT."

Well... we know where *that's* been, don't we??

On my way to CVS, right now!


Name withheld to protect her identity!  LOL

[For you non-cat people, you take a cat's temperature under their tail.  Yes, with a *rectal* thermometer!]

Thank You God

I saw this on FaceBook
and wanted to share it with you.

Isn't it good??

I guess it’s kinda crazy that I have a blog called “Lucky Dog” when I am a Bible-believing Christian and a life-long cat person!!!    J  J  J

(A cat person who owns the world’s sweetest dog!)

Anyway, I figured it was high time that I address this curiosity. 

Besides, in every group (especially one full of Christians) there’s always someone who actually pounces when one uses certain words like “lucky” or “fortunate”, when we believe in neither luck nor fortune.

So why haven’t I used the obvious word, “blessed”??

I guess I have issues with that word.  I don’t mean to. 
My late sister kinda ruined the word for me, the way she would say it so oddly.  My problem, not yours. 

(I told you I had issues!  LOL)

And besides, sometimes it feels like it can sound like I’m saying “aren’t I special?”, instead of its real definition of truly
being given favor by God.  ♥!

So, connotations and denotations aside… 
I’ll let you in on the back story:

I’m just quoting my dear Southern grandmother
(who I miss with all my heart), who would look over at me and say,
“Aren’t we just a couple of lucky dogs?”

And I always felt so, too.

The phosphorus-binding powder is working!!

The aluminum hydroxide powder
(that I am coating the cats' dry food with)
has lowered my cat's phosphorus level to normal!

We went to the vet for blood work today,
and got some good numbers for a change!

And yes,
this is what it's like to be in my world right now.
