Toby, ever since I adopted you 7yrs ago today (Vet's best guess at his age at the time was 5), you have had my heart. At the same time, you have had several health problems; pancreatitis, diabetic ketoacidosis, type 1 diabetes, cataract blindness for 3 months, cataract surgery, and most recently, glaucoma. Just like you give me your love unconditionally, I give it right back to you. Some may not understand why I haven't put you down because of your health concerns. As I have told you, as long as you don't suffer organ failure or have cancer, I will move the heavens and the earth to fix you. Because we are a pack, I can do no less. We are family, and family does not desert the other when in need. I will not abandon you. I look forward to several more years with you. I love you, Toby.
Plans: furry babies, Jan, work 8hrs

Rune Lesson: As we embrace Ing-Fro, glorious god of this earth, we have the ability to become totally aware of ourselves. To some, this may not seem like much. At the same time, we know there are others who are NOT aware of themselves. We KNOW we are every bit of a Spiritual being, if not more than, a physical being. Our freedom in Ing-Fro affords us the opportunity to become all knowing. We embrace that!
*from creation to re-creation. New is new again
1st check on all fur-kids: food, water, litterboxes, shelter.
Outcome: 7hrs of sleep, one wakeup, and Lily all over me
A kiwi fruit + AM meds + a banana
Open faced breakfast sandwich
Burr shop all day. That’s okay. I stay busy
*Jan video chat x 3
Jan suggested getting Toby something special. I focused on getting him some grilled chicken
McDs. No grilled chicken
Burger King, no grilled chicken
Spangles, YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! They were so kind, and even put a “Happy Birthday” on his dish of chicken, I grabbed food there, too.
Call in from the Ks Dept of Revenue. They could not understand why I sent them money. I just figured since it was sent to KANSAS, that they could ascertain it to be FOR Kansas taxes, but they could not see anything. I assured them I filed taxes with Turbo Tax and owed it. Of course, they will hold on to it until they get confirmation.
Toby’s feeding (birthday grilled chicken) and insulin @ 21 units
Toby and I out for a mid-evening, perfectly behaved, 4-block walk
*partly cloudy, mildly warm, stout southerly wind
Toby’s dorzolamide-timolol dose #3
Last check on all fur-kids.
9:30pm nighty night with Lily all over me (period)
Greetings to you, Mano, glorious male aspect of the moon; silver messenger on high. You’re the measurer and teller of time. You’re the counterpart to Sunna, the feminine aspect of the sun. As you fly silently on your way reflect into our souls the glory of the High Ones that we might aspire to the realms of the gods. Bathe our world in soft brightness, and whisper to our souls of joyous realms beyond our knowing. Mano, let us see the goodness within us and without us, all the nights and days of our lives. WE GIVE YOU A MOST HEART-FELT HEIL, MANO, as we honor the Mano that resides in us all!
