Off Again On Again

Wednesday, September 01, 2010
Well, I spoke way too soon about my blood pressure. Two days off meds and it's back to 140/90. Thanks pre-e. So, back we go. Oh well. I was really hoping this would be it. In other news, my yearly sinus infection has decided to visit about a month early this year. I've been dragging for the past couple days and then yesterday I woke up with a sore, scratchy throat that hasn't left. By the end of the day, I couldn't breathe and my entire head was and still is stopped up. Ugh. I'd love to stay home, eat chicken soup and watch Lifetime all day, but unfortunately it's a little busy for me right now. So, I'll sip some tea at my desk, carry my box of Kleenexes everywhere I go and warn everyone to stay back about 6 feet. LOL

On a completely unrelated note, have any of you with small dogs notice that they shiver a lot? I've been noticing my sweet fur baby shivers all the time. I just thought he was cold, but last night I knew there was no way he could be cold. I had him wrapped up in a fleece blanket and had him in my lap. I decided to google it. Imagine my surprise when I found out this is common among small dogs. There can be several different reasons for it, but one of them is hypoglycemia or low blood sugar. They suggested that I give my fur baby a little bit of pancake syrup and the shivering should stop after a few minutes. So, that's what I did and it worked. WOW! Who knew? My sweet little fur baby has low blood sugar! At least now I know how to fix it. Not to mention he LOVED him some pancake syrup! :)

  1. Poor thing! I hope you feel better soon!

    Thanks for the post on little Newton! Banjo shakes ALL the time! He eats very little so I bet his blood sugar is dropping. I'll give him some pancake syrup this evening! He'll love you for the tip!!!!
