The highlight of this week was, of course, working with Bear as Delta Society Pet Partners on Wednesday. No way I can top that, so I’ll just mention what’s coming up next week and let ya’ll get started on your weekend!
Sally and Ed, two of our friends here at the lake, rode into Albany with us today. We had lunch, then toured the Flint Riverquarium. Compared to the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta that we visited just after Christmas, our local facility is much smaller – but it’s got a great big heart and is doing wonders to educate south Georgians about life, aquatic and otherwise, along the Flint River. I’ll have photos for you next week.
Also coming next week – Sleep Apnea (Part II). I finally got the results of my sleep test this week, and diagnosis was severe sleep apnea. The test showed I stopped breathing 103 times during the night and changed sleep levels 198 times, adding “fragmented sleep” to the sleep apnea diagnosis. I’ll be returning to the Sleep Center for another “over-nighter” on Tuesday, January 25, to be fitted with whatever horror mask will best bring my sleep back into normal levels. If I don’t get help, I’ve been told the level of apnea I have can, over time, harm my heart – not to mention continue to raise my blood pressure and cause concentration and short-term memory problems (and here I thought I was just getting old). So, back I go. Hoping to have pics from “Round 2” for you next week.
Hoping you all have a wonderful weekend. If you can – get outside and play some. If you’re snowed or rained in, throw a quilt over your lap, heat up some hot chocolate (maybe add a little kahlua), grab a good book – and R E L A X! God bless.
