So ever since I was released from the hospital my life has just been all about recovering and building up my strength again. Climbing the stairs has not been easy. I’m still dealing with lots of nausea and I have very little appetite, which isn’t really a bad thing. I have my follow up doctor visit tomorrow and he’ll be taking some blood so we’ll see how my levels are.
In the meantime I’ve reactivated my Netflix account and it has helped keep me sane. I LOVE being able to watch Netflix via the Wii! It’s like we’re the Jetsons! It’s so cool. I add something to my queue from the laptop and it appears on my tv. Amazing! Now I’m all caught up on Weeds. Every time I watch that show I think “I could totally sell weed”. But who am I kidding? I don’t have street skills. I’d set up a roadside stand for my weed and be in jail by 4:20.
So, we left off where they sent me home from the hospital with meds after a night on the IV. Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday were more of the same. I didn’t improve at all. No sleep, couldn’t hold anything down. Couldn’t drink, couldn’t eat, nothing. CSP put buckets all over the house because I couldn’t make it to the bathroom in time most of the time. I was feeling even more weak and light headed. When they released me from the hospital Wednesday morning they told me if I wasn’t better in 2 days to come back because I’d need to be back on the IV. Well here it was Friday afternoon and no better. I called my doctor’s office to see if they could do an IV there but apparently you have to go to the hospital. So we went. Continue reading
CSP cracks me up. The other day I was getting ready for bed. He was already in the bed and I was in the bathroom flossing and whatnot. I told him that I had just noticed the collar of a new tshirt of mine was ruined. I had worn it when I got my hair done a couple days before and apparently some chemical got on it and had bleached it. So I told CSP the shirt was ruined and what happened.
CSP- Is it an aqua shirt, at least? (he dislikes aqua & it’s my favorite color so I wear it all the time)
Me- No it’s purple.
CSP- WHY DOES THE UNIVERSE HATE ME???
I was in the kitchen & CSP was in the den the other day when I heard him yell ” Why do you always have to stand on my nipples??” I’m assuming he was talking to one of the pugs. I hope.
Sunday night (Mother’s Day night), CSP, the pugs, and I went up to bed. I wasn’t feeling all that hot but didn’t think much of it. Until I woke up and had to race to the bathroom to throw up. Now, if you don’t want to hear any more about this kind of stuff, come back in a week or so and I’ll be talking about other stuff. Continue reading
We took the pugs for their adoption physical Wednesday and like most things in our life, it was pretty entertaining! We were really excited to see how much weight the girls had lost. At their last annual check up we were told that Molly & Kiki needed to lose some weight. So we stopped buying pre-made dog treats and started giving them carrots and green beans instead. And it worked! Kiki weighed in at 16.2 lbs which means she lost 1.2 lbs. And Molly weighed in at 21 lbs which means she lost 4! Woot! Such supermodels! For the record, Zoe gained just .1 lbs which was just fine because she was still growing and is now at a perfect weight. Our vet was very pleased with our girls. We’ve been going to Dr. Martin for years, for the pugs’ entire lives. And our girls LOVE Dr. Martin and her staff. LOVE. Just look at Miss Zoe getting lovies from Brandy the vet tech. Click to enlarge. That thing Brandy is sitting on is an adjustable scale. It starts out on the floor so they can weigh big dogs. Then Brandy tapped the foot pedal thing to raise it up then they can use it as an exam table. As soon as Brandy hit the pedal and the thing started raising up Zoe ran and jumped up on the scale and rode it all the way up like some sort of amusement park ride! Brandy’s eyes got big as dinner plates. She told us that was a first, no dog has ever done that before! Leave it to my Zoe!
Then it was Molly’s turn to get checked out. She’s covered in moles and skin tags and little warty looking things so they really go over her with a fine toothed comb. She’s not crazy about this part.
Since the pugs did so well at the vet we took them to Bruster’s to get doggie sundaes. I love that Bruster’s does this! The sundaes are free. They are a little scoop of vanilla ice cream with a milk bone. They pugs went nuts! I’d have taken pictures but it was a mob scene in the truck as soon as we gave the girls their sundaes. But here’s a pic so you get the idea. After ice cream we stopped by the store so CSP could run in and pick up something. I snapped the cutest pic of Molly & Zoe looking out the window, watching out for their daddy. Kiki meanwhile was snoozing in my lap. They all had a big day and were exhausted by the time we got home. Our sweet girls!
