I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends Sometimes it pays to have a lazy day. It gives one a chance to ruminate a while...chew on things that have been sticking in your melon for a while. Today was one of those days. I realize that I am a blessed woman in so many ways, but one of the things I am most blessed with is friends. So many I don't think I could count them all. And these friends have helped me immeasurably over the years in almost every aspect of my life. I have bloodhound friends, who took this neophyte under their wings, showed ,me the right way to do things, and what needed to be done. Held my hand when things went bad, cheered enthusiastically when things went well, and put up with me in my invalid body trying to get by in a very mobile-driven "hobby" for lack of a better word. And when they found out about the drastic changes I was about to take on in my life and body, they were so supportive! Many people don't understand why we "do dogs", especially since it can be costly, but people need to realize that the dogs are Dave and my break from the stresses of everyday life. We go to shows as a couple, not Mom and Dad, we act like grown ups, we talk about things other than the struggles we have in a family with special needs kids, and we unwind, if only for a day or two. I think it's what keeps us sane sometimes. Our friends in this part of our world help us do that, and for that I am indebted to them. I have "bariatric friends", all over North America. I turned to them in the beginning when I was exploring options and didn't know if...
