We have had heavy heart these past 2 week.

Since Puddles being diagnosis with diabetes he has lost his sight.
Now he can't see anything and it's so sad to watch him struggle
with getting around. The blindness has come from cataracts that
went wild with his sugar being so high (700).

He's up to 8 cc of insulin and hates the shots. I have to hold him
tight while Garry gives the shot, he will cry out every time.

Every Friday he goes to the vet for the day to have blood sugar
testing at different hours. The readings have been going up and
down, which is not good.

We can't take him being blind, so we're going to have the cataracts
removed. This is not cheap, $3600, for both eyes, not including
the blood work and EKG prior to surgery in Charlotte.

I have contact the NC State Vet School in Raleigh and for both
eyes it's $2300 - $2600. The only problem it that its a 3 hour drive
and we have to make several trips. But you do what you have to.

Puddles meds are now Chemo pills, Thyroid pills and Insulin.
He's such a little trooper!

October Beach Trip

Garry and I have been on vacation this week at the beach.

The first few days it was over cast and rained at night.
Lucky for us we didn't have much effect from the storms
that most people were dealing with.

The video below shows had rough the sea was as storms
move across the ocean.

Tuesday the weather was back to perfect and calm seas.

While I was doing my favorite thing, walking on the shore,
a shrimp boat was out doing their thing.
Such a beautiful site.

Love me some beach !!

Now I'm counting down to our Thanksgiving beach trip.
This will be the last one for 2014.

Me and Daddy

This week my cousin posted this short video on my facebook.
I was shocked and so touched.  

It's me and daddy, not sure what we are cooking.
This is priceless to me and I have watched it every day
and sometimes twice.

Love my daddy, such good times we had.
I miss him dearly and wish I had more videos of us!
