It Was A Quiet Saturday. Much Needed.

After an emergency visit to her doctor on Thursday, Lisa started a regimen of medications for Lyme. She's had a persistent headache, flu like symptoms, achy muscles, and extreme fatigue. I cancelled what few plans we had over the long Labor Day weekend. At first, she resisted, but I stood firm. We're both stubborn. It was quite the showdown of stubbornness. However, an hour after Lisa got up this morning, she had no leg to stand on. Lisa fell asleep on the living room chair. This was after she said, "I'm fine. You don't need to take care of me" Ah. Huh.

The fatigue is hitting her hard.

Sophie curled up on Lisa's tummy and stayed there the entire hour Lisa was asleep. Meanwhile, Coco and Lobo lounged on the sofa chewing their bones. Usually, on the weekends, they're rambunctious after breakfast. Not today. They know Lisa isn't feeling well.

For the rest of the day, after getting some work stuff done, I tended to the DIY doggy platform bed. Lisa moved to the sofa and that's where she stayed for most of the day. The kids curled up with her.

I think we both needed today.

Lisa relaxed. I caught up on a bunch of stuff.

If the weekend continues down this path, and Tropical Storm Hermine stays away from Connecticut, I may just have the DIY doggy platform bed completed at some point tomorrow.
