This day sis not go as I had wanted it to. My original plan was to go to the water and spend the day, quietly, with my thoughts. I guess that life  takes precedent. Once again,  Noodle had a bad night. This time it started at 2:40 AM. The sedative did not work. He cried, he whimpered, he arched his back, he vomited. He was not happy. At 8:20AM, I was at a Vet that had been recommended. X-rays, urinalyses, a call from this new Vet to my Vet in Venice.  No conclusion. A tiny stone in his bladder,  But not enough to cause the symptoms. Conclusion: he may have passed the stone and the urinalyses lab will tell because crystals will show up. Meantime: pain meds and a  very expensive canned dog food that is low protein.  Noodle feels pretty good, I am relieved that we are at least going to have some good nights of solid sleep. As for my plans to spend the day thinking of my life with Bob, I do that every day anyway, so I will just continue doing that. Robert Burns said "the best laid plans of mice and men go astray." I guess he had my day in mind.
