stress: dogs, wedding, sewage.

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

tried to blog last nite. had it all done, added photo and it was sucked into the void of nothingness.

the days: i got to 148 last thursday.
unfortunately, it has been a stressful few days.

rock: took him in for his vaccines and vet discovered a heart problem. had to see a cardiologist. actually saw the cardiologist on thursday which also began the days from hell.
that thursday, i got up and walked for a half an hour before we left because my plan had been to go, get the news of what is wrong with him, drop him at home and go shopping since id have the car.
before we left, opened the bathroom door and there was a ....sewage issue.

took rock in.. he is okay for now. might be the beginning of congestive heart failure but for now, he's on medication and everything looks okay. we'll know more at checkup time in the beginning of april.

came home and tried to deal with the ...sewage issue. didnt. the plumber actually lost his snake in the pipe and gave up for the nite. we went to dinner because we couldnt use any water.

the next morning, we got up and went to the gym to get in a short workout and then get showers. i am so thankful our gym has a nice clean bathroom. i admit. i hauled ass out of the house and left the fiance to wait around for the plumber who said he'd be there by noon absolutely the latest but showed up at 4.

by then, the problem had been solved by having a septic person come out.
after, i took round number 3 of disinfecting the bathroom and whatnot and the fiance said, its been a terrible few days... lets go out to dinner again.

saturday came and i did 9 loads of laundry, walked a few hours but then promptly messed up on the eating front. although, to be fair, it wasnt that bad. but it was more calories than i wanted or needed. but, i apparently did want them since i had them.

anyways, i was up to 154 but today i think im 151 or a low 152. i havent weighed in yet.

its amazing to me, my fat weight.
when i weigh in at night or heavier, i call it my fat weight. i dont know why.
im complaining about being 152.
thats absurd to me.

anyways, in addition to sewage stress which i didnt even describe in full detail, the rock stress of wondering what he had and if this is the beginning of the end, there i got walter.
a ten year old lab.
who isnt doing great.
i emailed the vet because we never got a chance to talk in person about it due to rock's sudden and surprising diagnosis.. but i emailed the vet asking questions about their euthanasia process. [cremation of walter and wanting to be sure rock can be there to say goodbye to his brother... which is what walter did for duncan.]

and then my email got hacked yesterday.

so, its been a stressful few weeks.
add in to that, we are now about 22 days away from wedding.
i still havent gotten a corset.
although i hope to remedy that this weekend.

with everything, ive been lax on the strength training. i really gotta bump that back up.

    So sorry to hear about Rock. I sure hope you all can get this under control. What a traumatic time you have had. I wish you the best from now on.

    I am reading your blog and remembering how stressful it was getting away for our trip two weeks ago. I even thought I was over-stretching and asking too much of life, etc. But it was great! As soon as that ship sails away, it will be like the world of worry is left behind (I hope). Can't wait to see your pictures. I hope your fur babies will be just fine. Hang in there. I'm so proud of you!

    Sounds like a roller coaster ride... Hope you post pictures of yourself from the wedding!!! It's always stressful right up until the day, then it's fun, fun, fun!

    It has been a stressful time for you :-( I knew about Rock from FB, glad he's doing ok for now. Vet medicine has come so far and they can do so many things for our pets these days just like humans. Hopefully the meds will keep his heart in line.

    I didn't know about Walter not doing well. We've had to euthanize 2 older dogs in the past few years and 1 5 year old Lab 2 years ago when he injured his back during those blizzards we had and he couldn't be fixed. We still have his sister and boy was that one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. Most vets will allow the end to be as you want it and our vet let Prancer come and be with Cody.

    And then the sewage poor thing. That's a lot to deal with, especially so close to the wedding!

    Hang in there and great big emoticon

    So, you found out what the sewer problem was? Country living and septic systems can be a real joy. I'm now on the hunt for eco-friendly Draino, because hair in the tub drain gets bad a couple times of year, and it needs a big flushing.

    On Rock: I'm so sorry you got this horrible news. Is that often a problem with larger breeds?

    On Walter: *sigh*

    On corset: any potential retailers you're targeting?

    I'm so sorry about all the sewage, dog problems. :-( I got two puppies from my sister and the vet told us Mae Belle has a heart murmur. Every few weeks we have been going in for vaccinations she said it sounds the same which is good but it's still there. She doesn't act slowed down by it, but I worry. Especially because Mae belle is Kenzie's dog. Big hugs Ms.Dee!
