Chiro and Vet and Curls.. oh my!

After a little over two weeks without seeing my chiropractor, I can safely say I've been cracked and adjusted yet I'm still in pain!  I guess I won't let quite as much time go by without seeing my chiro anymore.  My right hip is in agony.  Next visit is Thursday and I know I will need it.

I'm not looking forward to tomorrow.  Emmi Sue has her yearly wellness exam but I already know her blood sugar is elevated (as it was almost two years ago), so I'll be giving her insulin a few times each day.  Giving her insulin isn't much of a problem for me but having the veterinarian check her blood sugar is quite an ordeal for my baby.  When I made the appointment for her, the vet commented that Emmi Sue is very "feisty," but I knew she meant that my kitty gets mean or bitchy.  The thing is that Emmi Sue is anything but mean with humans except when she feels threatened or is frightened, which is how she feels at the vet's office.  The vet mentioned she may need to "slightly sedate" her, but I'm not too keen on the idea of this since Emmi Sue has never had this done before.  At her age, what if she has a reaction to the sedation?  This worries me greatly as I would not have a problem holding her while she or her assistant poke Emmi Sue to get enough blood to see what her glucose level is.  Should be an interesting afternoon!

Now my curls.. ahh, my curls!  I am LOVING my hair again and I'm so glad.  I would give almost anything to go back a few months and not have cut my hair but instead go to Tango Salon and have Stephanie work on my curls so I could be that much happier.  But at least now it will grow back the way I like it to be.  Live and learn, right?  I need to learn to NOT break out the scissors as a first resort as my friend Mike keeps telling me!  No more scissors, no more scissors!  Mike will be so happy when he sees my hair grow out and me NOT cutting it.

Very short post tonight as tomorrow will be how it went with my sweet Emmi Sue at the veterinarian's office.  My baby, I love her so much!  If her sugar is as high as it was in 2010, I know how badly her little body is hurting and I want nothing more than to take the pain away.  Tomorrow, mi angelito.. tomorrow Mommy will make it all better.


  1. Don't worry...Emmi Sue will be fine. And I agree with Mike. Stay away from the scissors.

  2. I think I've learned my lesson about the scissors and Mike still lectures me about my hair every damn chance he gets! And as for Emmi Sue, I'm almost positive her blood sugar is elevated but I've given her insulin before so that part is not a big deal. I'm concerned about the pain she must be in since I've experienced high blood sugar and how horrible it feels inside. I just hope she does alright at the vet tomorrow. It stresses her out something fierce.
