It wasn't a wasted trip, though. Lauren spotted several birds she's been looking for, and in the gift shop John bought me a replacement Tobasco golf umbrella to replace the one we had gotten there 10 years ago, which is now looking pretty shabby. Also a flat wooden spoon. I scored a colorful Tobasco tray, Tobasco thermometer for the porch, and two more stoneware Tobasco mugs to add to our collection (oversize and great for eating soup)!
So poor Maxie didn't get his party after all, and since then I've been too busy entertaining, then dealing with a weird health problem -- suddenly I started having vertigo! The room spins around when I stand, sit, or lie down quickly. I'm on antibiotics for a tooth infection in preparation for a root canal in a few days, but nothing else out of the ordinary is happening. I checked out side effects of Amoxicillan on the internet and it doesn't list vertigo as one of them. I checked out Vertigo and it states 4 causes, one of which is inner ear problems which I doubt I have. Also visual problems, of which I still struggle with my cataract surgery from last year, which is getting noticeably worse. Or low blood pressure (mine's high), or a brain tumor. So here we go, another hurdle to climb, another mystery to resolve. More doctors to see. More money to spend.
I am hoping I can get this vertigo under control before the Hattiesburg trial coming up in just 11 short days from now. I have Maxie and Lucky entered for Thurs, Fri, and Saturday. No way I can practice, nor run my dogs with the ground rising up and the room spinning around!
Upwards and onward with fingers crossed!
