Under the Weather
This is a dog friend of mine who is not feeling very well. The owner has spend several hundred dollars and the vets don't know what is wrong with her. It's very sad as she is losing weight, not at all active and just laying there. She is better this week than last week and everyone is hoping she's on the mend. If we only knew what was wrong and could do something for her.
One of my best friends had a major operation today. Her husband called when it was all over and she's well and doing fine with that big old growth gone from her body. Yeah! Everyone has been pretty worried about her.
We certainly mustn't take out health for granted. We have to pay attention to our bodies and try to keep them in good form in case anything does happen. Then we'll be healthy and able to fight what is wrong. I've taken astragalus root for years to keep a strong immune system. I'll keep it up as some day, I'll be glad just like I am that I've taken vitamin A and D since I was a young child. The new study out last month that states there is a 70% less chance of getting cancer if you do made me very happy. If I could only convince my kids......
Yes, I've got music to match the post. Under the Weather by KT Tunstall is for Ulu and Old Fashioned Morphine by Jolie Holland is something my friend with the surgery will probably appreciate during the next few days.
