Cards, pain, cold weather...

These are the cards I had gotten until this morning.... then....


The mean mailman came! He brought me 26 more!!

Ta-Da! And I asked my grandma to leave them there for a little more time...

This is the first thing I saw this afternoon when I went out for my walkie... And I looked at them until they went to another street...

Sniffing....

There was something very interesting here...

And while my grandparents went to the church... I stole my grandpa's chair!

***************************************
Well... let me tell you what happened with my mom yesterday. She went to her Dentist appointment at 11 am. She was there until 2.20 pm... Her Dentist is trying to save her tooth with endodontics but could not finish the work. It was soooo painful. He had to apply 4 shots of anesthesia. They did not work. He said my mom has the worst case of sensibility he has seen during his whole career! And he found a calculus into the tooth! My mom thought.... "Maybe that is the kidney rock that never came out" (Idiot mom!).
My mom knows that the bill will include all the kleenex she used for all the crying!
To make it short... she has to take lots of antibiotics and meds to reduce the inflammation and then to go back next thursday and maybe... maybe the Dentist can finish!
My mom thinks she is paying for and old sin with all the pain she has been suffering!
And today... today was my turn! I went to see my Vet. It was time for my annual tests.
But I did it better than my mom. He stole my blood and I did not cry!
We waited for the results and... I am perfect! All my levels are normal and my thyroid is working well. My weight is pretty good too!
The rest of our day was very relaxing. Here it has been very cold (for our standards) so we enjoyed lots of time under the covers.
We went out for my walkie and when we came back I went to my grandpa's chair to take a nap while my mom was on her treadmill. Yes... she is using it. 30 minutes everyday. Not a lot of time but I guess that is better than nothing, right?
************************************
I hope you all are having a great weekend!

Koobuss said...

Oh Lorenza,

We're sorry to hear about all the trouble your mom is having with her teeth, and we wish her good luck in her next appointment. My kousin Layla's mom is going through something similar. So far, she has had 49 novocane shots in her mouth since the end of October. it's an awful ordeal. We can sympathize.

We're glad to hear that you got a good report from the vet. Way to go Lorenza! Keep up the good work!

Again, good luck to your Mom on Thursday.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Koobie

Teddy Bear said...

You look so cute and cozy in your sweater. Wow, Lorenza, 26 cards? How pawesome! I can feel the love.:) I hope your Mom feels better soon. Stay close to her and shower her with hugs and kisses.

Love,
Teddy Bear

Stella said...

Ah, so too bad for Mom, hoping something will ease the pain until next Thursday. Thats a long time to hurt!

I loved your pink sweater too. Did your Grandpa throw you out of his chair when he got home? My Mom and Ali Z fight over her chair all the time.

Kisses,
Stella

Faya said...

Give your Mom a nice big kiss from us please....
I love your pink coat. And I am very happy to read that you are healthy !
Kisses, Faya

Bobby said...

Oh dear me tooth problems, I hope your mum is not as nasty as I was, I had bad back teeth with abscesses and that's what made me more grumpy when John first met me, lucky for me he saw them and got that sorted.
It is very painful and makes you feel awful so be kind to your mum. As ever you look very smart, that is a beautiful coat.

Martha and Bailey said...

Hi Lorenza
Your poor mum - what a terrible time at the dentists.
She must be feeling miserable and as you say she will then have to pay for the misery!
It was interesting to think the kidney stone might have gone to the tooth - unusual for them to travel in an upwards direction but your mom sounds unusual!!
Glad she is still doing the treadmill in spite of it all.
You have lots and lots of cards! You are very popular.
We loved your fur trimmed pink jumper today with matching lead!
Such a canine trendsetter Lorenza.
Enjoy your Sunday.
love
Martha & Bailey xxx

hero said...

Wow... you sure have a collection of cards there... glad to hear you have a clean bill of health but sorry for your momma painful dental episode though. Nice sweater, Lorenza.

Licks, hero

1000 Goldens said...

We are so sorry about the dentist, it is sad that we have to pay for pain! Hopefully they fix it next time. Hopefully looking at you and those nice cards will make her feel better.

Frankie Furter said...

Wow what an eventful day. Sorry about your moms toof. I'm sure you are being extra tender with her. Your pink sweater and leash are grrreat. I love the white fluffy stuff around your neck. Cards... Cards... and more cards. I'm glad you counted them for me. I thought there were 87 of them. Nice of you to warm up grandpa's chair for him.

BRUTUS said...

Wow they must have a serious bottleneck in that post office of yours!!
Your poor mom.... Don't know if you know this, but my mom is a dentist. She says you must have a good dentist to even TRY to save a wisdom tooth with a root canal - they can be very difficult on that tooth. It's not old sins, just a stubborn tooth (and pulp stones don't make it any easier). Glad to hear that you are the perfect specimen of a dauschound, though!!

Snorts-

Twix said...

Hi, Lorenza!
I sure hope your Mom is doing okay with the discomfort this week and Thursday gets here really fast. Tell her I am sending lots of doxie kisses to make her feel better!
I bet the mean mailman has more cards to bring you this week. Who knows how many you will get? (I don't see the one I sent you so I know you will get some more!)
Snuggles,
Twix
PS: That is one beautiful sweater!

Madi and Mom said...

Lorenza your poor poor mommy!! Give her a great big kiss from us. My mom has lots of dental issues too but I beleive you Mommy has had the most painful and ongoing one she has ever heard of.

Feel better Mom.

Hi Lorenza, we hope you get at least one more card because we don't think we see ours there yet. We were so excited yesterday because we got yours. It looks like it was mailed in early December - very slow delivery service. Thanks so much, Lorenza - we love your card.

We hope your mom is able to get that tooth taken care of - she must be so uncomfortable.

Hugs, Phantom and Thunder

Good for your momma! My Humans are getting lazy with their jogs...

And this is so weird, but my Momma went to the dentist on Saturday too! She didn't come home in as much pain as your momma though. I guess she got lucky there.

Hope she feels better soon!

Sonic

Kess And Her Mama said...

Love your coat! My dad had tooth problems last year just before they went on holiday and had to postpone their trip. So, not only did he have painful and expensive dental treatment, he also had to fork out extra for another flight! Hope your mum's tooth problem gets fixed.

Lorenza. Your pink coat with the furry neck is our favorite one of all. We are glad you have something to keep your warm and comfortable when you have cold weather.

Hello Lorenza,

Happy New Year to you. Hugs :)

Twinkietinydog said...

I'm curious. Does your grandpa know you steal his chair and covers it in towels? As far as the doctors' visits, ouch for your mom and good girl for you. Way to be brave. Finally, I asked my mom who's crazy about fitness and she assured me that 30 mins on the treadmill is awesome.
Twink!

Jemma the Chihuahua said...

Sorry to hear about your mom's teeth. My mom went through a similar painful procedure and now still lives with an unfixed molar that sometimes shoots pain down her when she bites wrong. I hear it's very bad.

By the way, that's a lot of cards!

Joe Stains said...

SOunds like you both need to relax after your doctor visits. the dentist is very scary. I am glad my card finally made it to you.
