Poor little Alia had an abscess tooth pulled yesterday...however, a scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream helped!!! In fact, I did something CRAZY yesterday and had ONLY chocolate chip ice cream for my lunch. I must confess...it was yummy.
Well, back to Caresse...she has a large mushroom shaped bone growth under her should blade that has grown through her muscles and is pushing against the back of her rib cage. This is what is causing a “hunch back” effect on her shoulder. Our surgeon wants another surgeon (the Dr. who has worked on her legs) to look at the results before a decision is made about the course for surgery. We will see her October 31st. I hate that it is so late out, but we couldn’t get a sooner appointment.
My precious Caresse just ran in crying with a wasp sting! Poor thing. I quickly mixed a little water and charcoal powder and put that on the sting to remove the poison. After 15 or so minutes I put a poultice of plantain on the sting to help relieve the pain. If you have never used natural herbs before, then the Bulk Herb Store is a wonderful resource.
I have something fun to show off in a few days...(well, I think it is fun).
