It has been a rough week for Mom this past week. First she had a lump removed off her hip on Tuesday and we are waiting for the results of what it was - but the Doc is pretty sure it is nothing to worry about. On Wednesday she had her routine blood tests and it showed her liver function is 3 times higher then what it should be. She has to have an ultrasound of her liver and more blood test done. Then she has an attack of the sleepies and spent Friday and Saturday just sleeping, she just couldn't stay awake and slept as much as I do!!! Yesterday she felt a bit better and helped my Dad a little, while he did some repairs to my fence.
Today me and Mom got to spend some quality time together - that is right we left the dweebs at home! First we went to put in our application for a permit to have an underground storm shelter put in - no need to explain why given all the tornado's this past week. Now finding the planning office was no easy task - it was in an old part of town that was a little scary and run down, we drove past it twice because its in an old church and looks ...well ..... like a church. Mom finally spotted a small sign on the wall that said "planning office" and we stopped. I guarded the car while Mom went in through a big heavy iron door. Once inside she said was like a maze but luckily there were arrows that finally guided her to the right place and then a wonderful lady helped her fill out the forms.
Mom finally came back and was so proud I had guarded MY car so well that she decided on the spur of the moment to take me to the park!
Now not to make anyone in the colder areas jealous or anything (smirk smirk) but look what we saw at the park. The dogwoods are blooming like crazy - they are all over the city they are fact and even the Magnolias are flowering. And gosh - look at that handsome chappy sitting under the trees....I wonder who that could be? A doggie under and dogwood tree. Mom was wondering why they are called 'dogwoods' that was until she got close enough to smell the flowers - yep they smell just like a dog in need of a bath!
The rest of our week is looking pretty busy, Mom will be having the scan of her liver on Wednesday as well as having her stitches out and catching up with doctors. She was also grumbling about all this 'housework stuff' and the dogfur bunnies that are hiding in the corners. Mom has been on a cleaning frenzy since we found out about my allergies - sadly no news on them subsiding yet - I am still the itchy scratchy boy. Hope you all have a great week everyone.
