Puppies and POTS

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season, and are not having too much trouble recovering from all of the activity. I also hope you tried not to overdo it so much that you can barely move now!

I wanted to apologize for how few posts I have put up over the past few months. Things have been a little tough in my neck of the woods, with many serious illnesses in my nuclear family that we have all been struggling with. I keep telling them, that I’M the only one that’s allowed to be this sick!! Hopefully 2011 will be a much better year for us all.

In the spirit of happy new beginnings, I want to share the new addition to my household: our new puppy, Loki! Since he is named after the Norse God of Mischief, you get a little idea into his personality… He’s a very sweet boy though, but he does like to torture our adult dog a little bit. And, if you were wondering, POTS and a new puppy are NOT mixing so well! I don’t think I completely thought things through when we jumped in with both feet, but I’m finally getting the hang of it. I am certainly getting the exercise that has been recommended for me since I have to take him out every hour! It was wonderful to have a little break over the holidays when there were 4 of us instead of just 1 to take him out during the day. I think the black circles under my eyes have finally faded a little with my increased sleep time over the holidays!

Here’s a picture of our new little devil! Isn’t he cute?


Okay, I know I’ve said it before, but this time I hope to be able to do it…I plan to post more frequently in the upcoming new year!

Best wishes to you all for a new season of health and happiness!

To make you smile...


Sweet boy
