I Need A Fly Whisperer
pupsters Wednesday, November 19, 2014
I've been kind of missing in action today. Last night turned out to be the worst night yet. Pain was so bad I didn't sleep at all. Boy, it sure is a long night when you can't sleep.
I finally killed one fly today. Only to turn right around and see another one behind me. They're going to have to start paying rent at this rate. Apparently a fly in a house can live a month.
Charlie has taken to scratching the wall behind my red bench when he sees the fly. Which then disconnects my phone. Which means I have to get down there and hook it back up.
Abi wasn't scared of the fly until she connected it to the zapper. Now she sees a fly and I suppose has visions of zappers, so she's running scared too. Darn fly is going to send us all to the nut house.
Is there a fly whisperer out there anywhere? If so, please contact me.
A doctor of physical therapy named Andrew will be working with me. He and a therapist also named Andrew.
He couldn't believe I've been wearing a boot now for over three years. Hard to imagine myself. He said we'd have to work hard to see if we can get things back on track.
I'm optimistic, but somewhat reserved. Don't want to get my hopes up beyond what I might not be able to do. I'll be glad for any progress. I have to go for six weeks twice a week.
The woman who handles insurance and such talked to me and they're going to reduce the price, which I wouldn't have been able to afford at all. She said the town has some bus for people in this situation and I could just use this particular app.
You see, everyone assumes everyone else has the internet on their phone. Most people seem to. But I can't afford that extra expense. And hey, when did all this happen that you have to have a darned "app" for everything?
Everyone does not have deep pockets. I'm lucky to pay for the internet here at home. And I'm thankful I'm able to do that.
They wanted me to come in the next two days to get started, but things just could not be arranged. So I go next Monday and Tuesday.
Did any of you guys watch that new show that came on in The Blacklist time slot on Monday with Elizabeth Heigl? It had so many twists and turns I think I'll have to see if I can find it on the internet and watch it again.
If you did see it, what did you think?
