For the first year of Thankful Thursdays, I’d list what I was thankful for each day of the week on Thursday. Although I’m not going to do that today, I am feeling a “list”-type TT is in order since I have a bunch of random thanksgivings in my heart right now.
Cold-brewed iced coffee. I’m sipping some now, as I do most mornings. OK, so technically is 12:30 PM but it’s still my morning. So much for the waking up early thing. But I’ve done a little better this week. Baby steps. Anyway, I loves my iced coffee!
I don’t have cancer! Yay! I have a mole on my arm that’s always been misshapen and last Monday it was painful and itching. The redness and pain lasted all week but by the time I saw the dermatologist this Tuesday, the redness had turned darker around the mole and it was no longer painful. He said it didn’t look suspicious but he’d keep an eye on it, and we both supposed I had bumped it and bruised it. Don’t I feel stupid?! The visit wasn’t a complete waste of time as I also got prescriptions for my adult acne. Proactiv just isn’t cutting it. So yay!
I feel a little weird mentioning anything about our infertility battle since that’s a very personal thing, but we are finally taking some action, getting tests done and seeing specialists, and while we do have a problem, I suspected it would be much worse. There is hope for us but it’s looking to be a long road. Some day, I will be a mom!
My bitty sweetheart is finally losing some weight!! She was on Temaril-P for her summertime allergies that make her itch so bad, but when I found out it was likely to blame for her constant hunger and thirst, I took her off of it right away, hoping we could manage the allergies without medication. We have now turned into her full-time butt scratchers to keep her from itching herself to the point of bleeding, but it’s working. She only has a few minor scabs from licking, and she has lost like 10 pounds in the last month because her old summer appetite, the one that refuses treats and only eats half the food recommended (as opposed to twice the food recommended, which is what she was eating while on the meds), has finally returned. I’m so thankful! Excess weight is so hard on a pet and can shorten their lives. Jessie is our baby and we want to keep her around as long as possible.
What are you thankful for today?
