Doug & Sheri

UGH - neck pain...

...My neck / shoulder on my right side is beginning to act up on me again. :( I think it may have something to do with the fact that I've been sharing my pillow with Sydney again. ;) She isn't able to make it on the bed by herself yet, but she can jump off the bed and that's probably more important. But she's been hogging my pillow again the past couple nights and I've been sleeping in contorted positions in order to accommodate her. It is nice to have her back, though. :)

And the other day I was feeling the little patch of exposed skin on her side that was shaved when she was sick (because Mark told the vet he felt a lump there and they wanted to check it - luckily it just turned out to be a HUGE bruise from all the fluid injections she was given) and it's starting to feel stubbly. The fur that's growing back seems to be harder and more coarse and Mark is afraid that she'll have one patch of really thick, hard fur sticking out of her side and soft fur all around it. ;)

Tomorrow we plan to go to Punchbowl to visit my Dad. It's his birthday tomorrow and I bought him a little bouquet of flowers and a mini-balloon. One would think that each year that passes, not having him around on his birthday would get easier... It's been more than 12 years since he passed away and it hasn't gotten easier yet. :(
