Thursday Thoughts ... I am not a Doctor

Are you a Doctor? I am not!


   I looked and looked... sure enough there is no "M.D.": at the end of my printed name and yet I self-diagnosed. 

   Thursday evening I was not feeling well and by Friday morning, I had a sore throat and a headache that was almost unbearable. I worked as long as I could ad then when I left early, me being the "doctor" went to Walmart and bought flu medication. Spent the entire weekend down and violently ill. By Monday morning I was shaking so bad and had a horrible pain is my ear, along with the sore throat , headache and vomiting. Got dressed and drove to Urgent Care.

Did I have symptoms of the flu? Yes!

Did I have the flu? No!

A nasty ear infection that had my throat appearing as though it were strep. The vomiting and body aches were from the crud draining into my throat and stomach.

If only I had gone to the doctor when I left work, I would not still be sick. I am feeling better but with that being said I just feel horrible now instead of two shades of death.

So this person learned a lesson. Go to the doctor! I wouldn't have missed all this time at work. I wouldn't have bought flu medication that I am not supposed to take with the heart meds I take. I would not have sprayed a full can of Lysol everywhere in my house practically choking on the smell.

All this being said, look at the end of your printed name. If there is no indication of "M.D.", head on over to to your local Urgent Care. You will find one there.

Another thing to keep in mind. Should you ever be prescribed phenergen, ask for the cream or gel. Because if you can not keep anything down, the tablets will not stay down either.



 Have a wonderful day and be well!

Sunday Spiritual - An explanation

Why Dogs Don't Live Longer Than People 
......Sent to Dr. Blake by one of his clients to share with his readers.. 

Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year- old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife, Lisa, and their little boy, Shane, were all very attached to Belker and they were hoping for a miracle. 

I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family there were no miracles left for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home. As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for the four-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience. The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker's family surrounded him. 

Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away. The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, "I know why." 

Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation. He said, "People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life --like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?" The four-year-old continued, "Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long." 
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.



This is a great lesson to us all!
