MAY 15 2016

EXCITEMENT OF THE YESTERDAY-- CLEARLY WAS  WHEN THE INTERNS DECIDED ONE OF THE PUPS , GRETCHEN DID NOT LOOK NORMAL- AND CAME TO GET ME-- I TOOK ONE LOOK - SHE LOOKED PREGNANT--A ND WHEN I TOUCHED HER SIDE I COULD HEAR IT - LIKE A DRUM...THE ONE WORD TO MAKE  US MOVE.... BLOAT....SO I IMMEDIATELY SAID GET HER TO GEORGES...AND PEOPLE RAN FOR MY CAR ( WHICH  WAS GASSED UP AND READY TO GO- THANKS TO RYAN'S LIST OF  TO-DO'S) 
I DID SEE HER JUMP IN TH BACK-- SO IT HAD NOT GONE TOO FAR YET.... I NEVER SAW WHAT PEOPLE GOT IN- APPARENTLY STEVE DROVE MY CAR FASTER THAN IT HAD EVER GONE  ACCORDING TO LAURA

I RAN FOR THE PHONE TO LET DANVERS KNOW THEY WERE COMING WITH A BLOAT-  ONLY TO FIND THE SURGON ON CALL WAS NOT "BLOAT QUALIFIED" AND WE MIGHT HAVE TO TAKE HER TO WOBURN--  THE TIME WAS THE WORST  PART OF THAT... AS THE BLOAT BUILDS UP IT STARTS TO INTERFERE WITH OTHER ORGANS  SO TIME IS CRITICAL..
I HAVE GEORGE'S CELL-- SO I STARTED TRYING TO FIND HIM... HE USUALY ANSWERS-- BUT DIDN'T-- SO I SAT BACK AND CALLED AGAIN-- THIS TIME  HE WAS THERE... AT HOME ( IN THE SHOWER) IN DANVERS AND  WOULD GO RIGHT OVER TO THE HOPSITAL- WHICH HE  DID AND OPERATED IMMEDIATELY RELEIVING THE PRESSURE- HER STOMACH HAD ROTATED.AND SAID SHE SHOULD BE FINE...HE PROBABLY DID A "GASTROPLEXY" IN THE MEANTIME... HE WOULD KEEP HER OVERNIGHT SEDATED AND  WE WILL SEE WHAT IS NEXT AS SOON AS HE GETS UP AND GOES OVER- I AM SURE HE WILL CALL OR EMAIL ME.

WE WILL PROBABLY SET UP THE ICU IN THE SUN ROOM AND BRING HER HOME MID DAY--- THE QUICK ACTION OF THE 3 INTERNS COULD HAVE BEEN LIFE SAVING - AS WAS THE ABILITY OF GEORGE TO GET OUT OF THE SHOWER AND GO OPERATE WITHIN MINUTES.

THAT IS THE FIRST BLAOAT WE HAVE HAD IN A VERY LONG TIME-- LAST I REMEMBER WAS A RESCUE DOG WE GOT FROM NEW YORK..  I HAD JUST... IN THE PAST WEEK  NOTICED HOW EXCEPTIONALLY BROAD HER  CHEST WAS AND HOW I SHOULD MAYBE CONSIDER BREEDING HER... OK... WAS IT GOLDIE WHO THEN INTERVENED AND SAID  WIDE IS GOOD... EXCEPTIONALLY BROAD IS TROUBLE... GOOD SERVICE  DOG NOW...- DON'T BREED HER.
EXPERIENCE COMES FROM BAD EXPERIENCE.  
************
THAT MADE EVERYTHIGN ELSE YESTERDAY TAKE A BACKSEAT--  WE DID GET 3 POSTS SET- AND TODAY IT WOULD BE HELPFUL TO GET THEM NAILED TOGETHER.. THIS IS HAPPENING INSIDE THE OLD WALLS OF THE OLD  ARENA --- BECAUSE...  
THERE WAS A GREAT STEAKHOUSE ACROSS FROM WHERE WE NOW LIVE... IT BURNED ONE NIGHT-- ALL BUT ONE CORNER- GONE.-- THE MAN WHO OWNED IT TORE DOWN THE CORNER TO REBUILD- AND FOUND HE COULD NOT BUILD.AND LOST HIS LIQUOR LICENSE.-- IF HE HAD LEFT THE CORNER AND BUILT AROUND IT, HE WOULD HAVE BEEN REMODELING AND BEEN FINE TO REPLACE THE CORNER LATER.
THAT IS WHERE I AM WITH THIS  RUN IN  SHED...  INSIDE THE FOOTPRINT...
**************
PROJECTS AROUND  HERE TEND TO OVERLAP-- WE NEED THE SOIL FROM THE NEW INFIRMARY TO IMPROVE THE RAMP INTO THE NEW PARKING AREA - WHICH WILL BE A GODSEND..  I LOVE HAVEING THE AREA BY THE T TENT AND FLAG OPEN WIHT MINIMAL CARS. SO THE BABY DONKEY AND MOM CAN GET OUT TO SOCIALIZE....MARK, BUD AND JEFF HAVE EQUIPMENT INTHE IR TRUCKS SO THEY CAN PARK THERE-- AND  AS WITNESS YESTERDAY MINE SHOULD BE THERE  BACKED IN LIKE THE FIRE DEPARTMENT.... FOR EMERGENCIES.

FYI
MY CAR ALSO HAS A 911  CIGARETTE SIZE BUTTON WHICH SHOULD WORK ANYWHERE IN THE COUNTRY-- IT IS INTHE SUNGLASS HOLDER JUST BEHIND THE REAR VIEW MIRROR.
THE OTHER PIECE OF EQUIPMENT WHICH DOES NOT GET ENOUGH PRESS IS TEH DEFIBRULATOR JST INSIDE THE LAUNDRY BUILDING.--
***
WE ARE READY FOR DOGFESTING....
******
IF I CAN GAIN 3 POUNDS IN ONE DAY WHY CAN'T I LOOSE 3 POUNDS IN THE SAME TIME...WEIGHING FIRST THING IN THE MORNING SO DON'T SEND ALL THOSE ANSWERS .  I DO LIKE CERTAIN FOODS-- ACTUALLY IT WOULD PROBABLY TAKE LESS TIME TO LIST THE  FATTENING FOODS I DON'T LIKE.....WELL.... I CAN'T THINK OF AN ICECREAM I WOULD NOT EAT-  OR MOST ANYTHING FRIED...  WHICH IN THE CASE OF SOME FRIED FOODS,  THE FRIED PART IS IS 94% OF WHATEVER THE MENU SAID-  THERE ARE SOME THINGS THEY FRY WHICH I DON'T THINK HAVE MUCH OF ANY FLAVOR OF THEIR OWN-- BUT THAT FRIED PART IS GOOD... ( MOST OF THE TIME)
THE CLAM SHACK  DOWN THE ROAD FROM US IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE #1 FRIED CLAM PLACE IN MASS.....AND THEY ARE BETTR THAN MOST... THERE IS SOME DETAIL LIKE THEY ARE CLOSED FOR 20 MINUTES MID AFTEERNOON WHEN THEY CHANGE THE GREESE. - I NEVER HEARD OF ANY OTHER FRIED PLACE CHANGING GREESE... THEY ADD IT...

*******
NOW W/R/T THE OUTHOUSE A CAMER PERSON WRITES....
The cottage we rented for many years in Canada had a two seater before they moved the plumbing inside. It backed up to another one and you could have quite pleasant conversations with the neighbor if you were in there for a while.

AND SO IT GOES

  1. Congrats to the intern for listening to his/her instincts! That is an excellent quality to have and a lot of people ignore it for fear of people disputing it. Gretchen especially thanks you.
