That's me trying to create a state of zen in a sea of chaos. So let's see what is happening 2 days after my last post.

Axl is on antibiotics and is feeling much, much better. We had pretty much decided that he would not be making the journey with us and now he's feeling a whole lot better. Ugh!!!! Of course, just because he's feeling better doesn't mean he is better. Yesterday he still wasn't peeing and pooping much. We'll see how today goes. The good news is, we can change our minds at the last minute. We are going to wait and see how he reacts to the antibiotics.

As far as the mortgage, I have no idea where that stands, but I have mentally given up on it. We have a place to stay for the month of July in AZ, so we will stay there and look for a house to rent. I'm actually kind of okay with that part. I guess because in the overall scheme of things is it not that major a set-back. I'm taking the whole no news is good news approach though :)


Crank up the stress

Stress levels around here have been unbearable and yesterday they cranked up to insane. Axl has been having issues peeing and pooping lately. He pees a lot and strains when he does with little coming out. Same with the pooping, he strains and strains and only a little comes out. Took him to the doctor yesterday because he was dripping blood from his penis. They took some x-rays and found that something is squishing his intestines. Not sure what it is, but something is much larger than it is supposed to be and squishing everything inside him. There are a number of possibilities but the most likely candidate is the worst one - Cancer. We have to go back to the doctor today to run some more tests and try to see what is going on. This creates a whole new level of problems that I can't even begin to try and process.

Then I get an email that my mortgage person needs my mortgage information because it's not reported on my credit. They need to make sure I haven't had any 30 day …
