MEDS = medications
MODS = modifications
Kind of a silly title for my blog today but I’m updating you on two BIG things in my life…………….my medication I’m taking now AND some recent modifications to my favorite of all napping spots – THE TENT.
FIRST MY MEDICATION
I have been eating my smushed up methimazole tablet for my hyperthyroid condition for two weeks now. Next week I’ll have to go to the vet to get my blood checked again to see if the medication is working! We are all hoping it is or I might have to take TWO smushed up pills with my yogurt and other sneaky substances (thanks to those of you who suggested some pawsome other things to try!). Mom will NOT be happy about that……she wakes up every morning worried I won’t take my ONE pill…..so having to take TWO would put her into orbit.
MODIFYING MY TENT
You know I’ve been a BIG FAN of the tent as a napping location – for as long as I can remember in fact………..and basically my tents have just been simple affairs – pillows propping up some kind of afghan, quilt or blanket with ME installed under them happily snoring away.
My tent is located in my Mom’s studio/computer room. It’s up on the studio couch and takes up one whole end of the couch. The “open” part of my tent faces her desk and computer………and that’s always been great because I can see her and keep an eye on her and vice versa. Well, for some weird (and I do mean weird) reason, before I was diagnosed with the thyroid thing I had begun acting differently – just little things but Mom knew something was wrong…….that’s why we went to the vet. Anyway, one of the things I had begun doing was waking up frequently in my tent and talking to her – the clickity-clacking on the keyboard was bothering me (we think)……and if Dad was in the room with her and they were talking, that REALLY made me talk. I didn’t like all that noise!!! SO, Mom decided to try a modification to my tent. She put an extra pillow at the open end so it halfway closed off the opening.
BOY OH BOY DO I LOVE IT…………..it’s much darker inside my tent for one thing but it’s also more quiet AND I can’t see Mom (and Dad) so I’m staying quiet. No talking………just snoring………!
For me this is grand because one thing I am doing since I’m on my medication is SLEEPING a whole lot more.
So, this has been a relatively boring blog today but I wanted to share two BIG things with you………………I’m being VERY VERY GOOD and taking my pill every day AND I have a brand new tent design that you might like to try. I know I’ve converted quite a few of my friends to tent-life since I’ve been blogging – I highly recommend a tent for security, snuggyness, and PEACE AND QUIET.
That’s my news…………..nothing earth shattering but for a guy like me and at my age – it’s exciting enough let me tell you!
