YUCK !!! Mom says she needs to get back to eating properly now that all the leftovers of turkey, ham, dressing, mashed potatoes, etc., are finished. Actually, she won’t let me have any dressing because it has onions in it and that causes anemia in dogs by breaking down their red blood cells.
Anyway, that means that she is going back to eating a lot of salad, fruits and veggies because she has been trying to follow God’s rules about eating properly.
She says that following God’s rules will help her in the lifestyle change she is working on. This new “lifestyle” has been helping her to lose weight (50 lbs. so far over the past 2 years). Ok… so it probably IS best for her and her health, BUT she also put ME on a diet because, she says losing weight has helped her back and hips and should help mine too.
Actually, I AM doing better now, but this diet stuff is a real pain in the tush!!! There are VERY FEW things worth begging for in a SALAD!!! She doesn’t put very much meat or cheese on those things, and you can only stomach just so many carrots and apples. At least the dry cherries help ease the pain in my hips and hers. (By the way, those dried things in the bad area are raisins, not cherries...)
P.S. Mom says to tell all of you that are praying that she appreciates it. Her daughter-in-law is in a Critical Care Unit. They plan to try to remove the ventilator tomorrow to see if she will be able to breathe without help.
