Well, it has now been about a week past Nesta’s 7 month ampuversary.   We got back a few weeks ago from an exciting camping vacation in the Outer Banks with him.  He had a great time, and was extra sleepy for about a week after we got back.  Seems he needed a vacation after the vacation.   Nesta visited the famous sand dunes at Jockey’s Ridge in Kill Devil Hills, the Ocracoke lighthouse, took his first ferry boat ride (twice), played tirelessly on the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, and slept under the stars for four nights.  Although he doesn’t sleep as well as we do, because he is scared of anything that flies.  Yep, he is scared of flies, bees, beetles, mosquitos, etc, and there was no lack of these in the Outer Banks – especially at night.  So he kept watch most nights.

His health seems to be well, although still bothered by some pain, my intuition says.  I cannot quite decide what it is and where it is, but we are guessing it’s phantom limb as he’s been dealing with it ever since the amputation.

After our  visit to a local holistic vet in the area (I have also been consulting over the phone with one in TN) we came home with a new supplement in hand called Stasis Breaker.  She wanted us to try this for a while, but I am not sure how I feel it.  This vet also did not seem as enthusiastic about the artemisinin as my other vet….  I’m guessing it could be that she doesn’t know much about it since she practices mainly in the chinese medicine lineage.   Either way, we are trying something new for now….not sure why though, as it wasn’t really my intention to rock the boat with a new regimen.  More on that later.  In the mean time, here are some photos of our trip to the Outer Banks!
