Most of this week was a blur. Wild, frantic running around, frustration out the wazoo, stress and exhaustion and not sleeping well. I bought fruit and vegetables at the Tuesday farmer’s market, but most were not what Lucy needed. Still, she happily scarfed them down and shared what she couldn't finish with Sasha. My husband whipped up a pot of beans for the vegetable proteins on Wednesday, but it was Thursday before I found the fresh Fava beans no one seemed to carry and Saturday before I found dried and frozen, at a much better price than the fresh. We made up a second pot of beans and rice by Friday and had her on the vegetable proteins by the weekend.
On Saturday, Sasha grabbed a dropped weenie with Lucy’s Prednisone and had a miserable day, whining constantly, and peeing everywhere. By Sunday we understood what had happened and took Lucy off the meds completely, although we had some pills left.
My first order of Amygdalina arrived Wednesday and my second on Friday. I now had 400 tabs of 100 mg each. I gave Lucy three tabs the first night, five each night after. I included Zinc and Vitamin C, and an enzyme pill which included Trypsin and Chymotrypsin.
Sunday I was finally better organized. I had the two source lists available on my cell phone, in my Evernote app. I started a fresh pot of beans and rice, which were ready for serving Monday morning. I rendered apricots, nectarines, strawberries, green beans, and cucumber into freezer bags for Lucy’s carbohydrates. I had apples and bananas to include later.
