Auggie itches

Poor Auggie has had a rough week with a non-specific skin allergy.  He was so miserable yesterday that I begged the vet to see him early, rather than on Monday as planned.

He is now on pills to block the itching, and the nearly-raw spots on his skin are looking better today.

Poor little guy . . . . 


Round Two


Round Two.

I had just quit coughing from the first round, three weeks ago.

This is no fun.

I wonder what is blooming now?

Mid-Monday update:

Miserable night.  Earworms from The Sweet Smell of Success, clogged nose, and restless.  I know that allergies are the price we pay for breathing, but really…..?!

Dear God

Dear God,

I know that many people have more pressing needs, and I don’t mean to be a pest, but  . . .

Please, in your mercy, give me my hearing back, and heal this damned infernal nonsense in my right ear?

And, if possible, make my allergies stop acting like the beginning of a cold.

I’ll do my best to break out of the funk and malaise, but I could really use some help right now.

In any event, please give me grace to bear whatever burden I must bear.
