Florence Nightingdogs

Early last week, I was hit with my first cold of the season. 

"Southwest style" ceramic tile is so flattering to pit bulls
An interesting aside, it seemed I was getting sick all the time my first three years in this house, before we replaced the "Marmoleum" floor in our kitchen with ceramic tile. Yes, it's really called Marmoleum and it's supposedly eco-friendly as its made of recycled and natural ingredients, but I also happen to think it was moldy and laid down with nasty glue that made us constantly allergic. 

This little cold last week was shorter in duration and intensity than what I used to get, perhaps in part because I had the highest quality home health care you could ask for. 

Nurse Fozzie's bedside manner cannot be beat. 

Not content to just check in on his patient, he basically lay on top of me for the better part of the afternoon to ensure I stayed warm. 
Dr. Sandy meanwhile made sure all the equipment was in order. She did get a  little bit distracted by the humidifier.

In fact, this was the longest she's ever stayed in one place except when she's asleep. 

I'm sure she was just making extra sure it was working.

Meanwhile, Hospital Administrator Lamar was the highly qualified bureaucrat, standing sentry in the living room to make sure I wasn't bothered by any unwanted visitors.  

With this sort of medical team in place, it's no wonder I was all better in just a few short days.


  1. How could you not get better with that team of professionals at your side! Hope you're feeling better real quick.

  2. I bet they were just happy to have you all to themselves!

  3. Sorry you are feeling sick. BUT how lucky to have such an amazing team to take care of you!!

  4. Our kids like to lay on top of us, too! Your pups have good instincts. =)

  5. Such helpful hospital staff! Nothing like a doggy brigade to nurse you back to health!

  6. I'd rather have doggies visiting me too when I'm not well. It makes you feel better even when you're not. I hope you get well soon.

  7. Aw... glad to hear you're feeling better!

  8. a live in nurse is always good, BOL

  9. I'm glad you are feeling better. You are one lucky lady....I'm sure Delilah would oust me from my deathbed for her meal. ;-)

  10. When one doesn't feel well, there's nothing like a herd of critters to make things better. The only drawback (if it can be considered a drawback) is that it's difficult to sleep with a critter stretched out on top of you.

  11. Hope you are feeling better! I can't get over how they are checking on you - so sweet!

  12. Glad you're all better again! Great med team fur sure :D

    Waggin at ya,
