Don't go through life; grow through life.

Haarlem is here with me at work. He's really tired but looks so much better. I couldn't be more thankful. I owe my parents my life for helping me with his medical bills. I think I should open up a savings account dedicated to just paying my parents off, then maybe after a while when it gets big they can use it for a grand vacation somewhere.

I discovered these bio-algae vitamins for dogs that have helped numerous dogs with IMHA. I ordered two 60 capsule bottles. Just to be sure. If it makes a difference, then him and Ruger will be on this for the rest of their lives to prevent any further complications. If Gio wants to pay for his baby Meeko to have it, that's fine I'll add it to his food too. But I can't afford to supply three dogs with it. I am so relieved to have found something with such good reviews for dogs, I just didn't want to stand by and "hope the steroids worked". It's so ironic that Haarlem is on steroids now, but there is a time and place for steroids sometimes and they did save his life this time. So for that I'm eternally thankful.

My skin looks gross today. Red with yellow scabs on my "beard scab". But honestly, I didn't care when I was walking around Target and eating lunch with my Mom. I have just stopped looking at people, I'm in my own world. I realized as long as I don't make eye contact with everyone I pass, I don't see if they stare and then I don't care!

My two big goals and intentions are Haarlem and me healing. I imagine us running again at Town Lake and ending our run with a swim at the Greenbelt. Nothing else really matters right now, just accomplishing health for Haarlem and me, the people in my life I love and care about and being grateful for what I do have.
