I haven’t written in over a month, wow! That’s crazy! Well what have I been up to this last month???? Preparing for Christmas, Starting two new organizations, being stuck in the hospital and keeping Sir happy. So it’s been pretty busy. Let me break that down.
Well company #1 is the kennel business. We have had 5 boxers living with us. 3 are ours and 2 are boarders. So its been crazy in our house trying to get a schedule down and keeping to it. One boarder just left to go to his forever home and I miss him so much. He was such a little cutie. I know the family will be happy to get him. Organization #2 is a regional leg of the USA Boxer Association which promotes the European Boxer in America. They hold and trials and there is not a regional leg in our area. So me and my breeder decided to start one. We have our first board of directors meeting in January. So getting that together has taken a lot of time up.
A week prior to Christmas I was put in the hospital with a bad lupus flare. Stupid me went to a different hospital and the doctor I got wouldn’t listen to me about giving me prednisone to help with the flare. It got so bad that I couldn’t even walk without being assisted. Finally me and Sir decided it was time for me to leave that hospital and go to the one that I normally go to for help. They weren’t helping me at all at the first hospital. So When we got to the second hospital they listened to me and got me out in 2 days, giving me prednisone every 6 hours and pain meds. I was discharged just in time for Christmas on December 23rd. I had no energy whatsoever. We missed Christmas Eve with His aunt and uncles because I was so weak.
We were able to celebrate Christmas morning with His family, but I wasn’t a bundle of laughs. I was tired and could barely open my gifts. I fell asleep in the afternoon. Woke up to find an odd rash on my leg. I still don’t know what it is. I don’t know if it’s my blood disorder acting up or if its just an allergic reaction. I don’t want to go back to the emergency room because i’m scared that it is my blood disorder and I will be hospitalized again. But it could not be I guess. I don’t know. Waiting for Sir to come home and we’ll make a decision on what to do.
I am feeling a bit stronger today. Although because of not knowing what this rash is on my leg I’ve been ordered to take it easy and not do a lot to provide risk of cutting myself in case it it my blood disorder. If I can hang on until tomorrow I can call my hematologist and schedule a CBC blood test to see what my platelet count is and if its low enough he will admit there or it could be something that I don’t have to be hospitalized for. He might be able to treat it outpatient. Ugh, I hate being sick. I will try to write more although here lately nothing kinky has been going on, but I guess just writing helps me to destress.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas!
