A combination of stress and still being hypothyroid are taking a toll on my body. I had a tension headache for 5 days while I was waiting for my test results. And even after getting the good results, my body still hasn't been able to relax. I think I may actually be getting a cold or something now from being so stressed.
I woke up yesterday morning and my entire body hurt. Neck, back, joints all hurt like crazy. I finally got out of bed after I got on facebook and saw that the litter we are on the list for a puppy from was being born.
We were 2nd on the list for girl puppies. All we needed was 2 girl puppies in the litter. An ultrasound had been done showing there were 5 puppies in there so the odds were definitely in our favor. There had to be at least 2 girls in there, right?
I checked and checked and checked facebook all day. There were no updates. Finally the breeder called us last night:
4 puppies were born. 3 boys. 1 girl. No puppy for us.
We are sad, but not too sad. The breeder has another litter due in about 3 or 4 weeks. The owner of the sire has dibs on the first girl from that litter, so again we are hoping for at least 2 girls. If that litter doesn't work out, she has another one due a month after that. By the end of the summer, we should have a puppy.
Phil and I have decided we aren't really be too disappointed about this though. Afterall, I did find out my cancer hadn't spread this week. :)
Overall, we will still count this week as a win. It's all about perspective, people.
