[SOOC Straight Out of Camera]
Husband (H) has hearing recheck at VA in Little Rock; my Best Friend (BF) and I have appointments with our asthma/allergy/COPD physician in Little Rock on the same day. For once we got it altogether and did not have to make separate trips.
BF and I have used the same physician together since 1991. I seriously doubt I would be breathing today, were it not for his diligent, persistent care in seeking solutions since I have all three maladies....and this week will learn about my heart problems.
This physician puts us in the same room at the same time and we 'entertain' with some of our escapades as he examines us. We only see him once a year, unless one of us as a severe change in our condition.
Luckie, our beloved, spoiled rescue dog, now about 13 years old, went off food/water Saturday and i noticed she and difficulty urinating...like two drops. Since the vet's office is only open 1/2 day on Saturday I quickly called for appointment and headed out of town. It is about a 15 minute drive. Thankfully Monday, she is much better, eating, drinking, and eliminating, however had regurgitated some grass early Monday a.m. So Doc wanted to observe her a few more hours.

I think she has continuing erhlichiosis. This tick-borne disease can become chronic in a dog. Re-testing is futile before at least one year has past, as you get a lot of false positives.
So I am behind in reading (posts and books) and writing. To tease your expectation, the next post is entitled A TALE OF TWO CITIES AND TWO LADIES.
Also, I have started reading CARAVANS by Michenor. The setting ins timely-Afganistan. Since Michenor writes epics, I feel sure I'll be on this one quite awhile. I like the way he intertwines his settings in detail to the story.
BF and I are carrying our Kindles as we expect some sitting time everywhere. A new area library has partnered with Amazon to allow check-out of digital books for two weeks, much like the library card, except there is a fee of $30 (I think). I am not sure if the fee is annually, or a one time fee.
We may be hillbillies living in the mountains, but we have no excuse to not be educated!
