While looking over the grocery ads for this week I realized they do not go in to affect until Wednesday so will postpone buying a chicken until Wed or Thursday. I have a small can of chicken that I can use for Teddi for his meals tomorrow. He also has his expensive dog food to eat. I might try that with some boiled potatoes as well.

Teddi still not up to snuff picking at his food or not eating. His activity level is down as well. Not sure what to do since the tests came back ok. He did throw up the other day in the car but later on ate.He has a history of pancreatitis so will monitor him for a few more days and take him to the vet if he does not perk up.

Thinking I have a bit of a cushion always causes something to go wrong or to be needed. Might have to go to the dentist next week. I have a sinus problem and one of my teeth is bothering me a lot. I hope it is due to the sinus problem. In the past my dentist examined me and said it was ok that it was being affected by my sinus problem. I do have a steroid spray on hand at all times due to my c-pap so will use it diligently over the next several days and hopefully the tooth pain will go away. My pulmonary Dr said to use the spray at my discretion.

Just having my aide do a little bit of a minor fresh food stock up for me today. All things are cherry picking. She is picking up a rotisserie chicken for me and it will only cost $3.46 since I have $3.00 from a survey. I am hoping the chicken will entice Teddi to eat. I will mix a little bit of boiled potato in to give him a combination of protein and starch. That is suppose to give him some balance for better health and digestion.

I have recently discovered that my store puts rotisserie chicken on sale after a few hours. They chill them and reduce the price to about $3. Of course, I was concerned about the meat sitting hot for so long and then sitting cold the next day. However, I have bought them several times now with no problem. I don't buy the regularly priced ones anymore.

Great if you can get them that cheap. Where I live they do not seem to ever have enough chickens. I usually call ahead to reserve a chicken. Never any sitting around in the cold food area.
