Meanwhile Jeepers is laid back in paradise, and just enjoying the lovin… He is watching it all happen, and oh how he loves when his Auntie Sandy comes from next door, so he can then get on her lap and hit her hand with his paw as he demands her continual petting, loving and “goochie gooing” as she tells him of his beauty and cute factor!
Here Comes that Weekend
She’s on top of her condo
ready for the weekend!
are you ready for the
Labor Day Weekend?
Here in Florida it’s soggy, with the weatherman letting us know that
“rain is in our forecast for the weekend”
ohhh how we have had the rain!
With each beat of the drums
Thunder beings have been playing
long and hard here,
Gypsy is just bound
to run out and join in song
she gets drenched here!
She is a funny little one
and has been ever so loving to her brother
as he continues on the mend!
We were ever so worried
he has turned the corner
on that tracheobronchitis
I am happy to say
NO COUGHING here!
We still have no
zoom zoom zoom
Nascar round the pool with the 4 leggeds
as the littles are still waiting for
Jeepers to recover,
we do have improvement.
Gypsy spends her days
playing with her toys, and often will go to
Jeepers and give him a loving nudge
or clean his eyes for him though!
It’s good to be the
And really not so good to be the
But here at home,
it is great to have and watch the 4 leggeds as they chase the thunder, watch the rain
love to be loved by their humans.
we hear the most from her
when the food is served
and for some reason she seems to think it is prepared for her and her alone!
this is her time to bark, and bark she does,
although I have never understood why
as she doesn’t eat human food!
But from time to time
she will get a streak of fun that runs through her as she chases and engages with
the others, running and ducking
being her sneaky self!
Aren’t the 4-leggeds just amazing?
While the other two
look at her in dismay
you could read their minds as they wonder,
“what are we … chopped liver”
life is wonderful in the world of the
4-leggeds I’m thinking!
And for our Sandy?
She continues to state,
“Jeepers is my DOG” as she comes and loves on him, gives him that extra hugging and holding and checks him daily between time of hard labor over there
“sootville” where improvements are being made with hard work and purpose and labor intensive mindsets of she and Stuart. they’ve come a long way, and still have such a long way to go.
the perp is still at large… but they know who it is; they know the affiliation and the closeness is disgusting, the wounds are deep.
they are survivors; now concentrating on restoring their home, and reclaiming their lives.
the best news is; they come here and have Jeepers, Gypsy, and silly Patches to entertain them and divert their attention; they have us to break bread with
sit around the table with
rest their eyes and their minds from the tasks which some days are larger than any would want to conquer.
They appreciate the thoughts of all here.
As we move into the weekend,
many will be firing up grills, getting out and about and on the roads for long weekends,
while others will be
“laboring” and working.
It’s Labor day weekend,
many healthcare organizations will be just like any other day… folks will be at work!
In hospice, hospitals it is business as usual, folks will be at work!
I heard a story yesterday that kept me up most of the night last night; a story that i will share in detail next week, and a story that I will use as a reminder to all who enter here.
It is a story to remind all:
WE ARE CONSUMERS in the world
along with the world of anything else in which we purchase a good or service.
I will let you know now friends;
when you go to a physician, a therapist, a healthcare provider…
YOU are the consumer,
THEY have taken oaths to
“do NO HARM”
you must hold them to that oath.
If you are treated poorly by a physician
if you feel you are or have been abused or harmed
you have rights, and you have options
I encourage you to use them.
A good place to start
is with the
Licensing board of the Medical Board in the state you live;
*file a complaint*
*let your voice be heard*
*write a review on the web*
*enlist a friend for support and help*
*know that you are WORTH best care and practice*
*everyone who seeks care, needs to demand that they are treated with kindness, compassion and respect*
“It is a mathematical fact that fifty percent of all doctors graduate in the bottom half of their class.”
Now I don’t know who the above author is, but what I do know is that many of those docs are also brilliant minds, but have absolutely no common sense, nor compassion.
I also know it is past time
we hold them accountable to their oaths, their professions
we do that best by reporting their actions to the very professions they represent.
Once again I am reminded of the saying of
Dame Cicely Saunders,
“Care of the body means nothing without care of the soul” and in this friends,
many physicians are lacking
one physician who is an Oncologist/Hematologist/Gyno
is truly lacking
that I am now raging over in his treatment of a friend.
And to think
he has the nerve
to boast in his website that he cares for the
“surgical, medical, emotional, spiritual care of patients”
yet was abusive, abrupt, insensitive,
DID HARM to a patient
is unfathonable to me.
We must be advocates in our care, and in the advocacy of those we care for as consumers of health care
care of all and each other.
Nuff said to get your motors running
ZOOM into the weekend.
if you have some sun where you are,
get out there and
“outshine it friends”
A beautiful day is breaking here, with pinks, lavender
and lovely light blue beginning to show!
I wish you a brilliant weekend.
I hope you have your flags flying
have plans to get one and raise it high.
We are days away
from the anniversary of
WE WILL NEVER FORGET
