Marti ....

Update on my old gal...I brought her to the vet on January 24th and the vet is pretty sure it's bone cancer in her leg. She is on two different pain pills and doing better. She is a tough old 14 year old gal

Martha has a sore leg/hip. Last night was not very good. She did let me put an ice pack on for 20 minutes and then 20 minutes with the heating pad, that rotation worked for a few hours. I also gave her some aspirin.

My poor old girl is failing. I am going to do whatever I can do to make her comfortable. Today was a little better but she is not herself.

Wine tour 10-3-14

Best line from this weekend...someone was asking how far until the next bathroom stop and she was told 17 miles from Traverse City. She said "I can kegel that far". I peed my pants
