No Good, Horrible, Very Bad Day

My vet called to let me know that Pumpkin’s blood work came back and things were not good.

She’s not in kidney failure yet, but it’s close, and we really need to do a lot to turn things around.  Pumpkin gets to go on a special kidney diet food, and I need to figure out how to get her to drink more water.  A suggestion was to mix tuna juice with water, and freeze it in cubes to give her.  I shed a few tears at my desk yesterday afternoon and then just couldn’t wait to get out of there.  We just got back from another trip to the vet where she had a urine sample taken, and the results of that will give us more of an indication of how bad her condition is.

Days like yesterday only help to point out how sucky it is to be in a LDR.  All I wanted at the end of the day was to be able to come home and stumble into a hug and be able to sob openly, but that’s not possible when your love lives 13 hours away.  Instead I settled for meeting my roommates out for half price burgers and $2 beers, and it helped to cheer me up some.

I’m working from home today so that I could take Pumpkin to the vet again, and so far she seems to like the special food.  She ate more of it than anything else I’ve tried to give her lately so I guess that’s good.  She’s only 8, and still so playful, I hope we can figure out how to get her better so she can be around for many more years.  She’s my baby!

boo boo!


Still no news… hopefully today before I actually have a nervous breakdown.

So, at what point do I need to seek medical attention for this disgusting cough I have going on?  It’s been hanging out for about two weeks, and has not improved at all.  In fact, I think its gotten worse, as I spend a good 30 minutes each morning coughing up phlegm.  (Sorry if that’s a gross over share).  Also, my nose is now stuffy and congested with the same gross stuff.  I really hate the doctor though, especially if they tell me there is nothing they can do.  That really infuriates me.

LiveFit has about 2 weeks left to prove to me that it is working before I completely abandon it.  My pants are tighter than ever, and while I appreciate the added muscle to my ass and thighs, there’s no way in hell I’m buying new pants.  I did just start phase two and get back from 5 days of no work-outs and eating whatever I want, so it gets a few more days to prove itself.  Otherwise, I’m jumping ship.

I had visions of future married life the other night when I wanted to watch Khloe and Lamar and Darren would have rather killed himself.  We compromised.

He got to play his video game, and I got to watch my show, all while still hanging out together.  I can deal with that.  He even pretended to listen when I was talking to him, despite the noise cancelling headphones.  I tried to play one game, and was killed multiple times within the 3 minutes the controller was in my hand.  I think I’ll stick with Super Mario or Sonic thank you very much.

Having Monday’s off from work always confuses me, but I am in no way complaining that it’s already Wednesday, and next week is March.  Seriously, when the hell did that happen?  Alright, I’m outa here to stare at my phone and will it to ring with good news.  Have a great day!
