Victory

Victory. 365/365 Project 365 is now closed. Its purpose was to keep me distracted during the toughest part of the treatment protocol for Lyme disease. But it did more than that. It kept my sense of wonder about the world around me alive. Those with Lyme disease know just how hard it is to stay […]

Up in the Grill 362/365 Friday I went for my first IV IG infusion treatment. Since it's a blood product and risky, the nurse has to monitor the patient's vitals and symptoms every 30 minutes. It's about 4-6 hour drip depending on how the patient tolerates it.

Another Fallout of Lyme Disease

Early Cherry Blossoms -356/365 CVID, Common Variable Immunodeficiency. Another fallout from complications due to Lyme disease. When researchers say Lyme disease is AIDS-like, this is what they mean.

A Cracker's Core Power

355/365 Crossfit ain't got nothin' on a cracker's core power!  The other day, he took care of his business (#2) while balancing on only one front paw. Sorry Internet, I had no camera to catch the action. You'll just have to take my word for it. He happened to choose a spot with a bunch of […]

Juno's Roar

"My name is Juno. Hear me ROAR!"  (In a barely audible whisper: "roar.") Juno rarely barks. When she does, we giggle. Because it's an adorable, wee, high-pitched beep that doesn't seem to fit a tough Siberian husky. Juno is likely the sweetest dog I've ever known. The only things that should fear her are buttered baguettes, live chickens and moles. […]

He'll still be traveling 50-60% but […]

Latest 'Shrooms

345/365 These mushrooms don't last long in  our forest. They're quite delicate and vanish after a big storm. They grow in mulch so their root systems aren't so stable.

The Perfect Weather

Perfect Weather - 330/365 Is it crazy that I love cold, foggy rainy days? Mr. Wild Dingo would be very happy if we never had rain, but ever since Lyme hit me, I've longed for long dark cold winters. Although some days are still too warm for me (in the 50's or 60's), there have […]
