thankful thursday blog hop brian 09232021

Hello everyone, thanks once again for stopping by for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am always thankful to each of you for joining us! Each and every Thursday we share the things for which we are most thankful and we always enjoy reading all of the things you are thankful for too. If you are new to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, thanks for hopping in, we really do get excited when new blogger pals join us!

Today, I am thankful to have one medicine done with. You might remember that my Internal Medicine Vet wants to get me off of the “pretty rough” meds I’ve been on for years. These meds, at least two of them, require some serious weaning time. The first one I’m done with and I had to wait two weeks to make sure there weren’t any negative things happening. The two weeks waiting is done and all is okay, and I’m most thankful for that. The next one I just stop tomorrow, no weaning, but I have to wait another two weeks to start weaning on the last one. Phew!

Actually, now that I’m off this first med without any problems I’m much more active than I’ve been in a while. I’m even going all the way upstairs once again. I’m thankful for that too. So, what are you thankful for today??? Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

It’s wonderful to hear that you are doing well without that med, i hope the other two go just as well. Sometimes we need medicines only for a season until our bodies heal up, and i pray that’s the case for you.

So glad the weaning off is going well. Meds can be good, but they can also do some pretty bad things.

Hey Brian, That’s good news to hear! I’m always weary of meds and won’t take anything that I absolutely do not need. That’s the way I’ve been all my life. Some meds are addictive which scares me. Humans have terrible judgement when it comes to controlling when they should and shouldn’t take pain meds for themselves. It’s different when they care for another, so it’s a good thing your mom and dad are in charge of the meds. They’ll have you off that stuff in a safe manner before you know it. Here’s to better and better days ahead, my… Read more »

I’m glad you’re doing so well getting off the medicine. Sometimes the medicine is good in the beginning and then as time passes it isn’t. It’s happened to me too. Keep up the great work.
