Of course a squeegee is technically a tool used to scrape water off surfaces, but in my world it is a universal term for anything cute that crawls on the ground and scurries like a squeegee making noise...see it makes sense now, huh? My sister and I use this word so much I actually forget that other people don't use it to describe everything...even yesterday when I was picking her up I used it saying, "I need to squeegee the straps on the car seat up" and then later I realized they probably had no clue what I was saying! LOL!

Gracey's Boo-Boo Belly. They had to shave her for the test.
Up in her right chest corner is where they did the biospy...there's 2 little puncture wounds.
She was in some pain last Thursday after the biopsy and I had to brave the snow storm and go out in a star wars like atmosphere (all the white snow reflecting off my cars headlights look like I am beaming through outer space!) to go get her medicine called in to a CVS. The doctor said there shouldn't be more pain then if taken blood from a regular needle, but she squeaked and whined every time she moved and I was not about to let her feel pain all night long. I know she has a high pain level and she wouldn't be reacting that way if she wasn't really hurting.
So what now? Well, we treat it with diet, vitamins and medicine (when she needs it). I tell you what though, Gracey is just LOVING this. I literally have been cooking for her these last few days and she has been on cloud 9! I know there are LD (Liver Diet) foods for dogs, but Gracey will have nothing to do with them, so it leaves me being a chef for her! I have been trying to research the best options for her and turkey, chicken, veggies (carrots & peas), rice, and potatoes are the ingredients I found that are most helpful to her. I know you can pay someone to make a personalized food for her, but I don't have that kind of money and I am willing to do it myself! So I call Gracey the Gourmet Chawennie now.
*If you know any information that would be helpful as I consider what to make for Gracey please let me know! Thanks!

When unbearable sorrow falls on ones heart, where can it go for relief?
Does the agreement of injustice soothe?
Can the idea of moving on somehow lessen pain?
I cannot grasp the affects of death
it cannot be measured tangibly
There's nothing more numbing than being slapped unexpectedly with Time itself
It wounds, it heals
It is not loyal to one or the other
It's as if you woke to a world that you have lived in your whole life that truly was never there
A trick, a deceit
Can the ones who long to kill sorrow succeed?
It is a lonely place, the sting of death, and one that no one can manage for you
How I wish to ease the heart
show it memories that feed hope, but they too fade away
I cannot hold this emotion, hit it and fight it with my passionate hate
It is not physical, but Oh how it is felt, tasted, and seen
So now I just wait and pray for the long road of healing to begin
and somehow offer a prayer that she travel it soon
however long it may take to reach the end
