Wit's end

On Saturday Dexter had minor surgery. Today, I noticed that his paw was really bothering him. I took the bandage off and I realized that it had been rubbing his paw raw. You should see it. I feel horrible.

On Sunday I had an MRI of my back. My OB/GYN ordered it because she wanted to compare it to the one I had when I first ruptured the disk in my back. I was waiting for her approval to start trying to get pregnant. My back has been feeling much better and I have been doing my physical therapy and/or going to the gym 4-5 days a week.

On Monday my father-in-law had surgery, and then there were complications. He's doing better now, but there have been MANY frantic phone calls. AND, because the husband is a doctor, everyone calls our house looking for answers. Including his mother and his three siblings. CONSTANTLY.

Yesterday the husband was on call. That means that he left the house at 6AM Wednesday and didn't get home until 8AM today.

Yesterday Mookie started peeing blood. AGAIN.

Our vet was pregnant and was induced today.
If one of the animals needs medical attention we will have to take them to a stranger.

Dexter gets medicine three times a day and Mookie gets medicine twice a day.
Have you ever tried to hold a cat down and give them medicine?

Dexter just walked into the room. You should see his paw. It pains me.

My camera, which is my hobby, my livelihood, is not working and I can't afford a new one.

Today the husband and I went to pick up his tuxedo that was being altered because he has to wear it at our friends' wedding in Cleveland in a couple of weeks. I was browsing through the clothes and a sweater fell off the hanger. I bent over to pick it up and I was almost knocked over by a shooting pain.
I hurt my back again.

The funny part is, this is only the tip of the gigantic iceberg that is my life.

I am TRYING to be positive, to look on the bright side. I really am.

I'm trying to hang on. I'm trying not to break.

It's too much.

It's too much.

It's too much.

I wish I could tell you everything internet.
