Molly has her follow up appointment regarding her heart meds today. A non emergency pre-scheduled appointment. 

Where you takin' me, hooman? 


I had to give Molly Gabapentin again in preparation for her visit. She was SEDATED. I gave her 1/4 of a capsule (which is HALF what I gave her last time). She's just too small. The vet told me she needs the diuretic again and we're going to supplement that with Vitamin K (Potassium). She doesn't have a pleural effusion, she has an effusion in her body cavity, so this COULD BE making it difficult for her to breathe. I have not noticed any strained breathing and I count her respirations nightly. Anyway, I started the diuretic last night along with her other pills, and she wet the bed (and me). The diuretic flushes all of her potassium and makes her weak. This combined with the Gabapentin made it nearly impossible for her to get up to pee in the middle of the night. I think we may only do the diuretic therapy once or twice a week. And only in the morning. 

I woke up with wet sheets and thought it was from a hot flash. LOL. My first response was not that Molly peed on me. #thisis50

So many steps all over the zoo.

So.... today's the day! I met my brother and his family. I don't have words that accurately describe how I feel about it all. All of the regular English words sort of fail. We didn't take as many photos as I would have liked, but we got some... 

Molly even sat on Avery's lap. ---------------------------------------------------------------^^^^^^^^^^^

Tried to get into Chris' 12 o'clock OTF class, but it was wait listed. I signed up and didn't even get off the wait list overnight. That's OK. It's the infinity workout and to be honest, I don't really want to do it. 

I can spend hours jumping off a diving board. Like over and over and over and over.

Gravel bikes out by the airport. Over to the W. Chicago park and up and around. WINDY. Felt fine until mile nine and I was over the wind.

I am insanely nervous about meeting Jason. I am a little disappointed that our visit is only for an actual split second, but I think that might be better, in the long run. Saturday we're planning to go to the Zoo, walk around a bit with his family and Chris... and then come back to our place... and have dinner, some wine, and some chatting, etc. Then Sunday Jason and I are doing OTF... and meeting for breakfast afterwards with Chris and the fam. 

Then Jason & fam are heading into the city for some sightseeing. They are staying in the city so they're closer to the airport in the AM. They leave 10:30 AM on Monday.

I am in the TdF fantasy league again... however I am not taking it very seriously. I missed out on a crap ton of points because I forgot to press "add" and I went into the second stage with an incomplete team. Whoops. Today I forgot to switch my "road captain" and it's a flat sprint finale. It would have been nice to have Peter Sagan as road captain since he's got a shot at winning today, and he needs the points for his green jersey, but...apparently I am not super invested in the TdF fantasy league. I could have even chosen Alexander Kristoff. But... I forgot. 

That's OK. 

 

(EDITED TO ADD: I should have taken a chance and put Wout VanAert as my road captain! HE apparently did something great today!)  


I cut down my nails and that's going to have to do. I am not finding time to go get them done this week.  This is the main reason I didn't want to have my nails done again... I hate being tied to the nail salon. My hands will just have to look funky for a couple of weeks. My feet are fine, from a distance. No one better be getting close enough to critique my feet.
