I'm glad that October is almost over.  
Man this was such a bad month, I'll be very happy when October is finally over. :P A little Sydney update - since it's all Mark & I seem to be about recently. Her condition has been up and down over the past couple of days - with her fever going up to 105.something on Thursday. :( The vet changed her medication so we're hoping that will bring her fever down. She's still not eating though she seems to be in good spirits, but the other night the fluid that the vet injected into her side (to prevent her from dehydrating) didn't get absorbed and collected below her rib cage. It must've been painful for her to lie down because when I woke up she was standing next to the bed looking at me, which I thought was odd. Mark later told me that he didn't think she slept at all and that she stood up the entire night. :( Poor dog! She was so tired that when he put her on her side in the morning, she immediately fell asleep.

My email has been acting up recently. :P I received a very important email from Julie Ann the other night two days after she sent it! :P I read that road runner was having problems distributing emails, but that's really bad. Most of my web work contact is through emails and it makes me look really bad when I don't respond to something in a timely manner. :( So, if any of you have sent me an email this week and I didn't respond, I'm not ignoring you, I probably just haven't received it yet. :P

And I decided not to dress up for Halloween this year. :( Yes, I'm a party pooper. But I just don't feel like I'm in the holiday sort of mood this year. I did see some really cute costumes at work, though. One of my co-workers dressed up as a Japanese tourist. She wore a muumuu and a hat, with a lei and a name tag that said, "Aloha Tours, My Name Is..." It was really a cute idea. We also had a gypsy, Cleopatra, and a french maid on the teller line today, not to mention several cowgirls in our loan department upstairs.

This weekend Mark & I plan to take it easy and hopefully try to get some sleep. Neither of us has been sleeping too well lately with everything going on with Sydney and Mark's Mom. Sydney does have another vet appointment tomorrow, so we'll be able to see if the new medication is helping her fever at all.

Lastly, I wanted to send some *HUGS* out to Amanda who's been going through a very difficult time recently. :( Please take care, Amanda - you know Mark & I have been thinking a lot about your family lately. :(

I am SO sorry about Sydney. Ugh. I wish I could just reach out and hug you, Mark and Sydney! I really am sorry. Its so hard seeing pets suffer. Because they cant talk to us... and you just want to tell them its going to be ok... like you would another human. Sigh. I hope she gets comfort and can lie down soon. POOR THING!!!

Thanks for all your nice comments, Angie. She had a similar problem this evening when she came home from the vet. I noticed she was standing around a lot, so I lifted her up and put her on her side and she was asleep within seconds. I feel really bad for all the things she's been going through lately. :(

((hugs)) Aw...I hope you'll hear better news with Sydney. I hope they can do something for her.

Don't forget to take care of yourself too. Get some sleep and relax. How about a nice day at the beach or something to relieve stress? I think that would do good for you and Mark.

A day at the beach sounds wonderful - it's been ages since I've been to the beach (or anywhere, really). Thanks so much for your wishes for us, we did get to sleep in this morning (sort of). :) Please take care and *hugs* to you too!

Thanks so much for mentioning me in your post, Sheri!

I have to agree with you that October has been a rotten month!
Sherishutterbug93 on November 1st, 2003 11:28 pm (UTC)
It has been! :( But I feel a little foolish talking about my dog, when you're going through so much. :( Please know that your family is always in my prayers. *HUGS*

Hopefully next month is better. *hugs* I wish there was more that I could do. Please take care of yourself. *hugs*

Thank you, Carrie! I hope so too. :) Thanks for always being there to cheer me up and put a smile on my face. Please take care of yourself too. *HUGS*

I hope November is a better month for you. Poor Sydney. I can picture her standing there. :( I hope the new medicine brings down her fever, that has got to be scary. Come on Sydney, we're pulling for you to get well!

I love little critters, they bring so much to our lives. :)

Thanks so much for your wishes for Sydney. Hopefully November will be a better month for her too. :)

I hope that with November will begin a much better time for you. I wish all of you a weekend with enough time to relax. You are in my thoughts. Please, take care of yourself. *Hugs*

Thanks, Sabine. I hope that Lauser is feeling better. Please give him a *hug* for me and please take care of yourself as well. *HUGS*

Oh, Sheri, my heart hurts for you and your family.

I understand that feeling when you look at the pooch and just *know* something is wrong. That split-second feeling of helplessness before you take action.


I'll file the Japanese Tourist idea away for future years. While it won't be quite the same here on the East Coast, it'll still be giggly!
