Busy Bee!

​Hello everyone, 

I know i keep promising and then i disappear, life has been too busy lately and i am just trying to cope with it. So much has happened since my last post here. First i thought i will wrtie it all in different posts  but now i am thinking to just add everything here. 

Well to begin with my dear darling Pepsi left us gracefully on 28th April to enjoy the beauties of Dog Heaven

I do miss her alot, she was my best companion she was there when i had no one else to share. I learnt so much from here and we both grew up together in so many ways. I will always miss her no matter what. 😦 But life moves on. I am just glad that she didnt really go through any long term illness, she was fine that morning, had just gotten a lil weak but the vet had already warned me that she is too old now, as long as she is eating and active she is good to go. She would have turned 12 years old in July. I guess for a miniature poodle that is a good enuff average age.

I hope she is doing fine and is happy with all the other dogs on doggy heaven 🙂

Next, there has been a trasitional phase for my daughter in ao many things.

i finally transfered my Daughter to a big girls bed, so far she likes it 🙂 i figured now is a good time to make a transition, especially with her 3rd birthday coming up and after summer vacationa she would go to Nursery. 

Also we stopped her middle of the night feeding. Yup she still woke up twice in the middle of the night for a  milk bottle and starting from 1st april it took a while but i got her to sleep all throughout the night. 

In summer vacations she attended a summer school in her school and totally lovd it.i know she is tooo small for all that but i want her to know that summer vacations means a time full of learning different skills and activities instead of sitting idle at home in front of tv and wasting time. I dont know thats just my way of thinking 🙂

Right after summer she started her Nursery and was too excited to be promoted from pre-nursery to a new class and have new friends. School ia going great

And just this week she turned 3 😀 time seems to have flown by and it feels like just yesterday when i shared my preggy story and then the sudden labor and delivery when she made an emergency landing much before her time. It all feels like a dream. Shez turning into a big girl and soon to be a big sister tooo. Yup thats right. Soon there will be an addition to our family 🙂 but this time around i was too occupied to weite my pregnancy blogs or share my updates, i guess with a toddler its difficult to mnage alot of things. Also thia time around i have been more irritated and my hormones have been acting up way tooo much so i just didn’t really bother writing anything about it. I might later but no promises 

Ok so the cat is out of the bag, sorry for a no picture post coz am writing this from my cell ohone and i cant seem to figure out how to put up pics here.

Aright then

Untill next time take good care of urselves and always tell ur family how much u love them 🙂

Hugsssss

Pepsi’s Updates

The results are in and as the doctor thought, its Poymetra. also there are traces of a few lil cysts in her Uterus.

The Doctor said he will not risk the surgery with Pepsi at this age so he will carry on treating her with medicine. It would have been more dangerous if it was a close case but the good thing is that it is an open Poymetra and she will keep discharging it. He did say that as long as she is walking running and eating normal its all good but i have to accept reality and make my mind and know that for this breed Pepsi is now living her golden years. 😥
For now i cannot even think about a horrible thing like this but i cannot deny the fact either.

I am really hoping for her to get better with medicine. i have to give her antibiotic this whole week and take her to the vet on Saturday. “Fingers crossed”

Well Thats all for now,

Until next time, take good care of ur selves

Concerned about Pepsi

I am lil concerned about Pepsi.

For those who are new to my blog or reading this for the first time, Pepsi is my french poodle, 11 years old and ive had her since she was 2.5 months. We have been thru a lot and have helped each other recover over different things. so yes there is A LOT of bonding. and yes this dog on my page is her

Yesterday i gave Pepsi a bath. and as i was brushing her, i noticed a slight discharge, that got me concerned, also i couldn’t help but notice how thin she has become, . So i took her to the vet today, he told me it cud be puss in uterus which is common in old age, but ti b on a safer side i should get her blood profile and uterus ultrasound done, he told me usually this condition (pyometra) is treated with a surgery and removing of uterus but because of her old age, if this is he case we will treat her with medicines. He told me to start her on an antibiotic as soon as i get the blood profile n ultrasound done. so right after i left is clinic i rushed to the animal Lab and get the blood profile and ultrasound done. ill get the result on Monday. till then i am hoping al to b fine and i hope there is nothing serious behind Pepsi going so weak

She does look all fine ad happy, i gave her a lil haircut as well yesterday so that i can manage he grooming better which with a toddler gets a lil difficult.

Protesting look right after the haircut

My happy lil Pepsi

My happy lil Pepsi

I just wanted to share this with u all, will keep u guys updated about her result and vets decision on treatment. fingers crossed until next week
Take good care of yourselves

Reflux, heartburn & a few updates

Just last week i wrote a post about my preggy update
Today all i will talk about is another major symptom of 3rd trimester that’s bugging me and killing me like any thing.

Image Our very own HEARTBURN lol 

I never had an idea about what heartburn is untill now, n trust me its nothing one can enjoy. i’ve gotten so sensitive that even a lil fatty or oily or spicy stuff (i dont usually have spicy even generally) and my entire internals are boiling and burning. on top of that, the Reflux is getting really bad.

Last night i woke up coz i felt almost chocked in my throat with a weird burning acidic feeling and feeling so sumthing stuck in my chest. it was soo uncomfortable. i tried to elevate my pillows n stay on my left side so it may get better, but no such luck. on top of that, entire day today my throat felt that yucky acidic feeling arghhhh so not happy about it. but then again i keep telling my self that its just two months more and things might just get better. For now Gavescon syrup is the rescue, dat too dosnt help at times 😦
I think i need to shift to a total bland food for two months. May b dat wud help the burning n heart burn.
ImageUPDATES on my lil one
Well the baby has been clustered on the right side, which makes it almost impossible for me to sleep on the right, i get good kicks lol, Rest is all good, lil one loves to make pyramids on my tummy eehehehehe, its such a funny sight n hubby freaks out lol
by pyramid i mean the baby puts up its butt against my tummy wall n it stretches out so much that it almost luks like a pyramid/ sand dune hehehhehee
All in all loving every single minute of this time. (apart from the heartburn n refluxes n itching) 😛 hope it all gets better soon, or atleast gets bearable. 🙂

Hope u all are well n i hope to catch up with every one real soon 🙂
till then take good care of ur selves

Hugsssssssssssssss

Preggy Updates

Image

I have been thinking to write some thing about my  pregnancy for soo long but have been either busy or lazy or just lay off laptop. i know i said i will write updates and this and that, n but honestly most of the days i don’t even feel like sitting on net, i’d just check emails from my cell n that’s about good for me.  So finally i gathered enough will to write atleast some thing hehe

To begin with no matter how much i wanted to get pregnant i had NO idea this is what i will have to go through. you must be thinking am talking about all the symptoms women usually crib about but i was seriously lucky to not go through most of them. for instance i had absolutely no morning sickness, nausea or any of this first trimester monsters that most women dread about. i was eating n sleeping fine, infact if my Mom in law wudnt tell me to be careful and rest i’d forget half of the times that i am even pregnant lol
First trimester went by like the blink of an eye. Second trimester definitely brought some symptoms like the sciatic pain in my right leg (Oh god it was bad), itchiness and feeling hot as hell was. and then came a time when i cudnt even eat an egg for breakfast coz i wud instantly break into sweat for the rest of the day. so no more eggs for me for breakfast, i shifted to butter n bread only to realize that the burning sensation i get in my left chest is not my gall bladder instead is a heartburn LOL initially i thought i had gall stones lol. also i know i would have to get new cloths for my self just wasn’t sure when until this happened 😛
ImageSo i got my self some loose shirts made from tailor that i could wear n be comfortable in without feeling too much itchy n hot.

Now 30 weeks past, sitting in my 3rd trimester the symptoms i feel are itchiness (LOADS OF IT), feeling hot, heartburn and at times a little difficulty in sleeping especially when my lil one is sitting on one side.

Well the reason i thought of writing this post today was to share the great news that i finally went shopping

Image

I had been wanting to start shopping right after my 3rd month but i wanted to wait a lil longer, just to be sure, just to be on a safer side n just till i am sure of what colors i wanna get. That too took way too longer then i expected coz every time i’d go for an ultrasound the baby’s position wasnt “favorable” as i was told. It was a relief when finally i found out, but for every one else, they gotta wait till the baby is finally here 😀 that shall be another happy post on my blog, i dont promise an instant posting since i dunno how my routine will get but will make sure i announce it as soon as i can.

Image

During the last two months i also attended stitching classes, just thought an added skill wont hurt, it was only 8 classes crash course n i sorta learnt the basics of how to do pants and a simple shirt. not that i plan to make baby cloths but I had always wanted to learn stitching and this seemed like the perfect time to keep my mind off my self and get busy with some thing constructive. I do need alot more practice but i’;ve gotten the ropes so yayyy

Finally came the shopping days 😀 First i had gone with my mom in law to just chk out things and prices, then i went n got cloths, loads of them,even though every one tells me they get wasted coz baby grows outta it, but how can u resist those adorable lil cloths n body suits now can u???? (A).

I love the fact of how organized i am lol. Like even when i was getting married i had boughts my cloth atleast 4 months ahead of time and gotten them stitched when i still had 2 months left. I like to keep prepared before time, i hate to run around in a rush, and forget impt things in process

ImageSo while i had nothing else to do, i made a list of times i will need categorizing them into bedding, bathing, grooming, cloths, traveling and additional accessories. and i listed things under each category that i wanted with the amount of each item i will need. This way when i went shopping all i did was chk out every item i would get and in the end i had a clear picture of what all is left.I got most accessories like cloths n blankets, wrapping sheets, nail clippers etc., will get bigger stuff like crib n baby stuff drawers n car seat n other things like those, start of 9th month.

Image

As the time is passing now, am getting more n more excited, tired and impatient. I cannot wait to have my lil one in my arms, get off all the irritating symptoms and feel normal again, ready to begin a new chapter of life but at the same time i am really enjoying this time that i have while the baby is still in there. I love watching its movements and kicks and at times we play games too, our fav for now is knock n respond hehe i knock n the baby responds. So now that am mostly done wid my shopping and most things on my agenda list, i am going to sit back and enjoy this one month before i begin shopping for big items. For now i shall drink alot of water, milk and sleep as much as i can . 🙂

I honestly have no idea when i will write a post again but i think i have covered almost every thing in this one till now. So till you guys get a new update from me, enjoy this post n keep praying for all to go well for me & my lil one 🙂

Updates on Pepsi

Just a lil note to update every one on Pepsi’s health progress,

Its been a while since she dislocated her bone on 20th may (almost two months now), then had maggot attack first on her right cheek, then on her left, n then there was a heat spot. so much went on with my poor lil sweetheart. but now alot is better, her maggot attack skin healed perfectly, the hair are back, i cant even tell where it was any more so dats a good thing 🙂
Her heat spot got better too, since i started to give her a bath every two weeks, and got her room a fly proof net, so am all relaxed now knowing no matter where, there is not gonna be another maggot attack. no fly is coming n giving eggs on my baby any more. As for her leg, well i guess i gotta live with it the way it is now. she uses it pretty nicely to walk, fast walk, scratch her face n all and at times while running, just at times while running she picks it high in air n runs wid just one leg. Kills me to see her dat way but luking at her happy face i really admire the way she has coped up her pain.
I gave her a really short hair cut on 1st june, so its easy for me to maintain n give her a bath, easy for me to see if there are any more maggots or heat spots, since it was difficult to see any thing in her long hair, plus the weather is still hot so i figured a short hair cut will do her good

Image

 Took this next pic on 8th June after her second maggot attack m its treatment. u can see the slight redness on her left cheek if u luk closely

Image

i even started to keep her indoors as much as i could so that the maggot attack scar heals perfectly without another fly jumping into it. took this pic on 14th June

Image

Then i got into a photo session with her after giving her a bath on 4th July while she enjoyed a natural blow dry from the air coming from the window and enjoying the outside view at the same time 🙂

Image

8th July she enjoys a cool evening in the garden 🙂

Image

and on 12th July she enjoyed the car ride with new leather covers while i came back from my dad’s 🙂

Imageshe luks soo adorable n stupid at the same time here hehehehhee loving her picture n pose. the big madam sitting at the back seat with a proud look 😀

Pepsi n I would like to thank every one who prayed for her recovery and gave me their supporting words when i really needed them the most.  🙂

Sushi Treat

Hello all
Just thot to post sumthing since it seems like ages

Today (10th July 2013) me n hubby made a random plan for sushi
Since I cannot have raw meat right now I ordered for cucumber sushi, while hubby ordered for cucumber sushi, tuna sushi n volcano sushi for trial dat was made of salmon, eel sauce n mayo topped wid crushed shrimp crackers.
Cucumber n tuna sushi came first in the platter but we were too hungry to wait for a pic of platter so I just took pics of wat all I cud hehe

Image

Didnt take any pic of tuna sushi but I just had to take the pic of the volcano sushi wen it arrived….. it was hugeeeee
Image

Since there was mayo in it as well it turned out pretty heavy. Outta 8 pieces Hubby could only finish 5

But I wanted to eat more n only Cucumber sushi wasn’t enough for my hungry belly I ended up ordering Chicken Taypanyaki wid garlic rice
Oooo wat a bliss I ate like I had been hungry for ages lol

Image

Image

Stuffed and satisfied wid out food, we headed to the ground floor after paying the bill only to b called back from half way for our complimentary fried ice cream dat was ready on our table. I dunno why we got a complimentary ice cream but who cares
It was pretty good, only if we had more space in our sinfully stuffed tummies, we wud have finished it all, but couldn’t lol
Image

Over all, it was a good outing n we really enjoyed ourselves. 😀
