Well this morning I woke up with Costal Chondritis. I have been getting to much sun here lately through no fault of my own. I have my son's Golden Retriever, Sabastian until August as my son has to go to the Republic of Georgia with his Army Reserve Unit until August. I also have his girlfriend's dog Shelby who is a mutt until Saturday. Well as you know the dogs have to go outside several times during the day to go to the bathroom and get exercise. My husband works during the day, so that leaves only me to do this chore. My hands and feet are all broken out again and unfortunately, I woke up this morning with Costal Chondritis in my right rib cage along with swelled up aching hands and fingers. I hate to call the doctor, because I know I will seriously hear about it from him. I am also afraid that he will put me back on Prednisone. My husband is upset about the dog situation and told me that we are not going to watch Shelby ever again. Shelby is not very well leash trained and when he went to take her out, she jerked and got away from him and caused him to fall and hurt his knee. I had to go and get her. It was terrible. She ran all the way to the neighbors house just a barking. Sabastian is very well behaved and he minds. My son has him well trained. The other dog is terrible. She is cute, but does not mind simple commands at all. I am just not feeling well and am frustrated with the dogs. Sorry this is so long.
