A Positive Outlook
After the rollercoaster week that I've had, I managed to have a serious discussion with the vet and I feel a little better. I spent most of the weekend doing a great deal of online research into canine kidney disease and dehydration and incontinence and we (the vet and I) are not certain that it is Shannon's kidneys afterall. I've made a number of changes to her diet and her supplements to support any oncoming problems and then we are just going to keep a close eye on it.

After finishing Generosity, I decided that I wasn't going to start any new stitching projects until I had made major inroads on my UFOs. In that spirit, I pulled out a piece that is more than halfway finished and that I haven't touched in at least 3 years. Midsummer Night's Fairy by Mirabilia. When I stitched this piece I decided that I would do all DMC and then add in the metallics, beads and treasures. Looking back I'm not certain I would still make that choice, because the metallics are a BEAR! Particularly since most of the metallic stitching on this piece is blended needle - you either are stitching with one strand of DMC and one of metallic or some combination of just metallics. It's driving me crazy and gave me such a headache yesterday. So I opted to put my needle down and take a trip to the gym.

My first trip to the gym and I walked on the treadmill for a half an hour. I had never been on a treadmill before and it took a little getting used to. Getting off was also an experience and I had to find my land legs as it still felt like the ground was moving under me :-)

I added a graphic to the bottom of the blog that will track my weight loss. This morning's weigh-in shows me down a total of 22 pounds. Wow!! Of course, I didn't eat much this weekend but I'm still mighty pleased with myself. 175 is a mini milestone for me and I am almost there.

    Thinking the best for Shannon - that's good news so far. Way to go on the weight loss... the treadmill gets easier with time.

    Shannon: I ran across your comment at wilwheaton.net and saw that you have a dog with kidney disease. That piqued my empathy since I recently lost my beloved dog to the same disease. I just wanted to make sure you are aware of a fabulous web resource for people and dogs called K9Kidneys at

    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/K9KIDNEYS/

    There's an active message board, and tons of resources in the Files section. There are many wonderful people on that board and the support I found there was invaluable.

    I hope you find it helpful, and I definitely encourage you to sign up. I had a much longer time with my Skip than I would have had otherwise: my vet didn't treat Skip aggressively until I educated myself on the disease and treatment options, and I found more valuable information on K9Kidneys than anywhere else.

    I wish you all the best with Shannon and don't hesitate to email me if you want to talk.

    Believe me, I've been in the scary place where you are now and I understand.
