shit monday  
  • First, got slight food poisoning from a sandwich I bought yesterday - no tummy upset, but I was in the bathroom for most of the evening yesterday (so much fun). had a lurching moment this morning, but luckily just a lurch.
  • I get rolling this morning, but the dog isn't interested in breakfast, so that's a worry.
  • She has a terrifying bowel movement (there's a phenomenon called raspberry jam. i saw it. it was scary).
  • However, I have to go to class.
  • I decide to use housemate's travel mug and manage to pour like a quarter cup coffee down my front on my way to school.
  • Get to school to realize I've forgotten the corrected tests I needed to give the prof for the class I'm TAing for.
  • Hop back in car, drive home, pet dog, pick up tests, make it back to school only half an hour after class has started.
  • Come home, call vet for dog, and schedule her to be dropped off for ultrasound.
  • Results of ultrasound are that yep, she has colitis (her colon is not doing well - it's all enlarged and weirdly lumpy). There's a medicine she can take for 5 days that will hopefully make it all better (antibiotics, yay)
  • Vet also did an xray, and discovered she has a small calcium (or something) deposit under her spine near her tailbone. it's not affecting anything *right* this second, but will probably at some point. Treatment here is a series of shots (starting at 2 a week for 2 weeks, going to 1 a week, then 1 every other week, forever) ... each shot costs $50 -- that would blow my food budget for *me* much less her, so yeah, can't do that. OR they have a stem cell therapy that only costs like $1,800 and will help her for like two years. yay.
  • Get a dog with a totally shaved tummy back.


The bright side of the day?
- dog ate dinner and her medicine
- Vet gave me the x-ray for free (though i had to pay $300 for the ultrasound)
- i found the text i'm reading for Japanese crit theory class wed online
- the boyfriend had a weird day too?

yeah, that's all i got for the moment. i think i'm calling it. hopefully this was enough this week and this is not a sign of things to come.

Ah, that's great :D YEY. I hope it is going well!!?

I have a boyfriend of three months now too, it's terribly nice. Somehow haven't updated my LJ in about five or six, though...

Bah, poor you, poor puppy! I'm so glad she ate her dinner, though!

trust me, me too! it's been crazy being so worried when she seems like she's not hungry, but this is what happens with the furry creatures - no way to ask if they're not feeling good.

luckily the antibiotics seemed to have done the trick. i gave her her last dose yesterday and all week she was fine. fingers crossed going forward though!
