Home Renovations Continue and Something For Jake

Wednesday, January 4, 2023

Loving this new window stand Gerry built for Jake. Back at our old place in Saskatchewan, we had a lower window in the front room and an ottoman of sorts that Jake could jump up on and look out the window. This home the windows are higher, and pets do love to look out the window, so Gerry built him this stand. He used leftover carpet pieces from our bedroom, and wood from the walls we redid in the trailer. A few pieces on the railing were leftovers from the walls he rebuilt.  We didn't have alot of insulation on the outside walls, and although there were some new windows in here, behind the windows he found there was no spray foam around the outer sides of them, leaving big gaps behind the walls for the cold air to get in.

We have plumber set for next Thursday to install some new plumbing to a 1/2 bathroom we built off our bedroom.  Soon this room will be a real working 1/2 bathroom! Woo Hoo- no more walking across the living room and through the kitchen anymore! With back issues still, it will be nice to have it closer. 

Jake  has been on medications for his enlarged heart and a water pill for a couple of weeks but he still hasn't been taking too well to them . We actually didn't even know he had an enlarged heart till he had xrays for his trachea. We have lessened the dose as much as we can and are trying every second day now.. and will see how that goes. The vet said it's important for him to have a good quality of life though so unsure we will be keeping him on the meds long term. He is 13 years old this year- where does the time go!
