Vet says that Mickey’s seizure(s) may be due to hypoglycemia

Vet says that Mickey’s seizure(s) may be due to hypoglycemia — meaning too much insulin. We knocked him down to 5 units twice daily, put him on Vasotec for his heart, move him to a whole fluid pill (he’s on a half now). Believe it or not, that’s actually good news. Vet believes Mickey’s treatable. We’ll take him back for more blood to be drawn tomorrow. From today’s blood tests, his liver and kidneys are functioning fine. We’re going to keep the Little Dog around with us as long as we can. :)

Tomorrow morn’s Vet appointment takes precedence over Body Pump. And it’s too chilly to go to the gym.

Another positive development of the day is that my salary has been ‘adjusted’ upward to the tune of (over) six grand. This will put me in line with what others in our parent company are making for doing my job. I am elated! I am also tired and imprisioned by inertia.

How was your day?

My dog Mickey had a seizure yesterday

Wt: 138.8. Good. I’d be worried if I kept losing like I had the last few days. Only a pound or so up from where I was when vacation started.
Mood: Sad. My dog Mickey had a seizure yesterday. David’s taking him to the vet this morning. He reassured me, telling me that if even if it it epilepsy, it’s treatable. But the more we think back on the dog, and his behavior, the more we think this wasn’t the first seizure. I wish my dog could tell me what’s wrong with him. Besides that, though, the dog is happy and not in pain. And don’t even come back to me with “It’s just a dog.” Just don’t.
Work docket: I’m working slowly today — can’t get my mind off of the dog. Hot properties…job fair ad…hopefully a recipes update.
Lunch plans: Brought Smart Ones Basil Chicken.
Afternoon plans: YMCA, I guess.
Evening plans: I missed last night’s guild meeting…but there’s a festival committee one tonight at 9pm. I wrote the first two pages of my trip report last night. I’ll post them to the site tonight. If I’m not depressed.
Saturday: I’m toying with going to Body Pump tomorrow morn. ANd powercleaning all day.
Sunday: Church and a PPV. (Damn…the WWE is churning these things out superfast!)

Friday Five:
1. What drinking water do you prefer — tap, bottle, purifier, etc.?
At home I drink tap water because I don’t taste anything wrong with it. I’ll fill up plastic bottles of tap water and refrigerate them to get them nice and cold. Here at work I won’t TOUCH the waterfountain/tap water. We have water coolers with purifiers built in that I use to fill up bottles.

2. What are your favourite flavor of chips?
Cape Cod Original Kettle Fried. After that, it’s Ruffles Sour Cream and Cheddar.

3. Of all the things you can cook, what dish do you like the most?
Lasagna, followed by Martha Stewart’s Mac and Cheese.

4. How do you have your eggs?
Well scrambled, not runny. I also used to make a mean homemade omlet with Velveeta cheese and chunks of ham. That’s when I was heavier. :)

5. Who was the last person who cooked you a meal? How did it turn out?
Er…I can’t remember. We’ve been eating convenience foods lately, with vacation and all. Oh wait! Mom cooked Mother’s Day dinner…meatballs. They were great! :)

May 15, 2003

I updated last night!

Wt: 138.8. Freaky how hte vacation weight’s falling off now that I’m back on my usual eating plan. Maybe I peed out a major organ — I’ve been drinking a lot of water lately.
Mood: Again, eerily happy.
Work docket: Fixed Communities. Will do scrapbook, some dining stuff from yesterday. We’re also having pizza for Damon’s Birthday — I have to orchestrate that.
Lunch plans: I’m skipping lunch so I can leave at 1:00 for…
Afternoon plans: The BusinessPerson Special Phillies Game! Our (wildly inconsistant) Phighting Phils (22-18) play the Arizona Diamondbacks (19-21) at 3:05 this afternoon. Going with Mom and John.
Evening: Tidy kitchen/living room. Do laundry. Guild meeting at 10:00. May play Dierdre the Pain a bit before then.

Getting back to normal!

Wt: 141.2. Good! Getting back to normal! I knew once I stopped eating like a sow the weight would fall off again.
Mood: Pleasantly happy and content
Work docket: Did online mall and updated Barry Lank’s page with Sunday’s column.Waiting for an ad while gathering pics/stories from the Camden County Best of the Class of 2003 section. I want to update recipes, and maybe do some look/feel stuff for the inevitable Women on the Run online section.
Lunch: Brought SmartOnes Turkey. I went food shopping yesterday!
Afternoon: I wanted to take a nap, since I didn’t sleep well last night at all. Probably won’t, since I need to track down my YMCA membership card. Kitchen needs some TLC as well.
Evening: Back to Yoga at 7:30. I may go early to get 15 or so minutes in on the treadmill first. I”m trying to vary my workouts now — I think that will help me reach 135 a lot better than starving myself will.

If all goes well with my days-off request, I may be heading to Mississippi on June 12th to visit David’s family and attend his 15 year High School Reunion. He has yet to experience the joy of a HS reunion. I went to my 10 year one back in 2000. That’s enough for me. Cherry Hill East was cliquish and snobby when I attended, and my class was STILL cliquish and snobby 10 years later.

Signs I’m getting my stuff together:
1) I’m wearing a long skirt not to hide holes and runs in my hose, but because I want to.
2) I bought my own Oatmeal Express bowls at Genuardi’s last night so that my healthful diet is not dependent on the whims and whimsies of Havco Vending.
3) For three days in a row now, I planned my day’s outfit the night before…saving precious minutes so that I can actually blow-dry my hair rather than let it air-dry.
4) I sorted through my vacation pictures less than a week after I returned home!
5) AND…I renewed my domain name for another year, since I did so well with keeping it pretty/updated this year! I’m itching to redesign again though.
