Just a Moan because I need someone to hear it!

The cold snap is affectingly me badly and I think longingly of the three meds that I couldn’t tolerate.

The dog, because the winds were so strong and cold, didn’t get out twice last week. Now he’s getting up and scraping at his bed(s) every ten minutes, which means I have to remake them each time. My hips and base of spine don’t like this.

I had a text asking me to make an appt with the GP about a hospital letter. Of course, the letter hasn’t been copied to me, even though I ask over and over. I don’t even know which hospital it’s from. There are no face to face GP appts. I have a telephone appt on Friday. I’m nervous it’s about the ultrasound I had on my neck and jaw glands where the technician went to show the results to the consultant and asked a lot of questions about who had referred me there, and why.

My hands are swollen, and it feels like someone is drilling into my left eyebrow from time to time. Here is the end of my moan. I could add more but don’t want to be boring.

Not boring Lupiknits - if you need to vent, do it. If anyone doesn't want to listen - they don't have to xxxxxx

Am here all day @ hospital for outpatients gastro dietetics clinic + for immunology clinic...i’m listening + relating to every word & sending you ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️‼️ This is THE place to vent 🤷🏼‍♀️🥂🍾💐

That was a very short moan, Lupiknits. You have enough credit for at least another thousand words. There's always people here happy to listen x

And I’ve just taken the dog out. Sure sign of a bad day. Put my heel on the ground and it hurts to the top of my head 😢

but you made your dog happy, i'm sure he/she appreciated your effort.

He was, I should remember that!

Hi lupi , if you are fretting you should try and get a face to face appointment, it doesn’t seem right that they will only give you results over the phone. I hope all goes well for you , i had the same scan which showed the salivary gland was damaged , no treatment, i just have to massage it when it gets blocked up. Please let is know how you get on , best wishes xxx

You moan as much as you want sweetie. Sooo sorry about it all. Sending lots of hugs 🤗 love 💗 kisses 😘 and prayers 🙏.

Just prayed for you sweetie.

Take care dear. Bless you.

Send Blue to the sofa, maybe he'll settle without scraping...or if he does, it's easier to plump up the cushions 😁

Call the surgery to have a polite moan about not getting the letter, find out which letter they mean, and ask for a cancellation for a face-to-face. Keep moaning! Better out than in! xxx

Send Blue to the sofa? Have you never heard the phrase “get a greyhound, lose your sofa”? Even my friend, who has taken in an ex racer, lost her sofa immediately! That dog had never been in a house and still has no idea how to climb stairs but made a beeline for the sofa”! 😂

Talking to my son last night we’re wondering if it might be arthritis, as Blue is getting on.

My sister's lurcher had never been upstairs and made a beeline for the bed first time here! 😂

Glucosamine helps, as does half a paracetamol every day...Loxicom is an appetite suppressant and not what a sighthound needs at all...my dear deerhound-ish goddess did well on it (with vet's full approval) and a high-protein diet (hand-fed in bed) 🐺 xxx

I had no idea I could give him paracetamol. Back in the ‘70’s our vet prescribed it for everything. I’ll try that. I have some meloxicam but am wary of the stomach problems that can give. He’s back on some kind of fishy smelling stuff people on Amazon can get from their vets but is cheaper from there. Thanks x

In a butter ball, it goes down a treat...it was the very old vet that gave me the tip about paracetamol, as 40mph hounds do get knocks! xxx

Steak fried in butter with an Italian cheese topping seems to perk an houndrel up too...but just don't go there (though pound for £, Aldi's brisket is cheaper than Butcher's 20% meat trays...) xxx

The houdrel is perfectly happy with half a mini Babybel. His amiable companion prefers the other half for herself x
