Another short update

Well, slowly but surely my vision continues to improve and Diva Shasta is improving too - maybe a little faster.

I had an appointment with my specialist this past Tuesday - he was really pleased with how my eye looked and I was able to read the 20/300 line on the chart which was a big improvement from the week before when I was doing good to see outlines of people barely a foot or two in front of me.  I can tell that my vision is improving a bit day to day - was able to make out a small coin I had dropped on the floor of the kitchen which is a lite-colored  linoleum - the coin turned out to be a penny.  Next appointment is next Wednesday at which time I am hoping  and praying for another big improvement so I can get back to work - will soon be out of leave and income.

Diva Shasta is doing several things which put a lot of smiles on my face.  For over 2 weeks, her and Shiloh had NOT played tug or raced around the living room - until the past couple of days.  She is dancing for me again, playing tug with me, willingly doing her tricks for me, bouncing up the stairs and loudly complains when I don't get her food bowl sat down in front of her fast enough.  I think part of the meal time excitement is due to changing foods - I really thought what I had been feeding the Beaglebratz was really good (and it is) and they really liked it.  However, everytime I did a taste test with them - new in one hand and old in the other - after sniffing both really thorough, both of them would choose the new first  (Diva Shasta tries to help herself to the bag).  Something she is NOT doing that she had been and when she did it, it really made me feel like the worst dog-mom ever - it has probably been almost a week since I last heard her whine or yelp.

Ok - need to let you all know that none of us will be around for a few days - no updates or nothing.  I have family stuff to deal with as well as a nephew who is getting married.  May not be back til after my next doctor appointment. 

So hope all is well and I really miss not being able to visit all of your blogs - as well as the Beaglebratz miss their furrends.  May have to have a big blow-out party when we FINALLY  get back.  Rite now I need to go join the Beaglebratz for a decent nite's sleep.
