Yesterday was my 22nd anniversary with my company...

Friday, March 30, 2012

I "celebrated" by ordering pizza for my hubby and not eating any myself. I bought myself a papaya and am having some this morning instead. (Good choice)...

Today is almost the end of the month. Tomorrow morning have a check up at my gym that is sponsored by my health insurance company. Instead of charging people more if they are unhealthy, they are giving discounts to those who meet healthy criteria. Tomorrow is the pre-check and I have a final check up in September to see if I qualify. I probably won't but am trying anyhow (I am in the obese range for weight and can walk only 2 mph on a treadmill)...but we will see.

Puff has hyperthyroidism which explains his weight loss...

Saturday, March 24, 2012

He used to weigh 18 lbs. He has lost 4 lb in the last 3.5 years and he is 11.8 lbs now. This may explain why he is hungry all the time.

He has a slight heart murmur which can be a side effect of the hyperthyroidism. I am getting an estimate for the 1st month's treatment with radioactive iodine and after that he needs to take thyroid medication for the rest of his life.

Since this may be prohibitively expensive and he is 14 years old, I may have to just let the disease take its course which my husband is not happy about but we have to be realistic. Afterall, living to be 14 years old (for a cat)is quite an accomplishment. My other cat isr 16 years old and she has mild arthritis but otherwise seems to be healthy for an older cat.

    I do understand. My 18 year old who has been a diabetic for 5+ years has been having some problems. We were back at the vets today for blood work, etc. In the past month, her tests have added up to over $600 and they still don't know what's going on. She is the most affectionate kitty I have ever had and you can't tell anything is wrong until she starts to vomit again but still doesn't show any signs of illness. Hope things work out for you and your kitty. It's not easy.

Hope the cat just has a UTI...

Friday, March 23, 2012

We are going to the vet with our 12=y-o 16-lb cat. Maybe he is just overweight? Haven't really weighed him in awhile but he doesn't look fat. He has been "marking" things more than usual which is a nuisance.

Right now, Puff, is the main thing on my mind. If anything happened to Puff my husband would be impossible to live with. He is upset that I just want to bring him to the vet (the cat).

Work went well..1st day back after medical LOA...

Thursday, March 22, 2012

Stuffing envelopes lasted only 2 hours or so yesterday. Today it might be longer. It is a mindless task but at least it is a job.

I have been given a couple of small tasks in addition to my regular tasks and I certainly have enough to keep me out of trouble.

I had to stay late yesterday cause I was late getting to work in morning. Today I plan to leave plenty early so I won't have to do that again. I often have dreams of being late for school (back in grade school trying to get there by 9:00. Those dreams are often mixed up with people from my whole life and last night was no exception.

MRI scan went well...

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

The technician said she wished she could scan me all day and was happy no views had to be redone. It still was about 35 minutes in the machine. I probably won't get any results for about a week but the technician said to call the doctor who ordered the scan to find out if they got results. The first time I was tested (4 years ago with an EUS, esophagogastroduodenoscopy, and biopsy) I didn't get the results for 2 weeks. Hopefully, the results will be good again.

I get nervous about cysts on the pancreas cause I know they are watching for possible development of growth and possible cancer.
