Awaiting Test Results aka A Change of Venue

Awaiting test results is exhausting and that's where I'm at right now with my daughter.  I felt that I needed a change of venue and dogs are supposed to calm your nerves, so...


Although the Prez built the condos for the kids, we talked about letting them in the house once it got chilly here since they no longer have their own porch like they had in Virginia.  So after the Prez bought waterproof weather resistant, stain resistant beds for their condos, off he went. 

However, buying indoor beds to replace their old ones would mean we might see a change in their behavior.  Copper is especially "selfish" and gets nervous when someone touches with his stuff.  He actually paces around when I vacuum the hair and sand from his "place".  Moon, on the other hand, could care less.  I mean, being a stray she was just always grateful to have a bed!
BEFORE




AFTER

Well that's what we thought would happen. We were WRONG! Copper took to his new bed immediately, not even missing his old one...no pacing, no nervous behavior.   Moon was the one who surprised us. Once her new bed was in place in the middle of my office, she gently placed her toy on it and spread out on the carpet instead!  I'll tell you why in another post...:)

Well JP I'm sure thinking of you and your daughter. I remember one time I was supposed to get a call from my Doctor about a lump in my breast. Well it was a Friday and my husband said, "get dressed, we are going to the Dr.'s office and wait. I'm not going all weekend wondering." So we went. They HAD the results there, just hadn't called me with them yet. They weren't an emergency as it was benign. So I hope your daughter gets the same results and they hadn't called her yet because it isn't an emergency. I know, the waiting is so hard.

Hoping the results bring good news JP.

For a smile, let me tell you about blogging fodder here. You know where the old bus thing is in between my house and yours (the one you snagged the bush from)? Well, someone left a huge stacking Christmas presents lights set up right by the road in front of it. So random, and it totally cracks me up. But I can't bring myself to blog it, because I know if you still lived here YOU would've had so much fun blogging it. Makes me miss you :-)

Just like kids - you can never predict. They make a fibber out of you.

Good luck and prayers for your daughter.
