is it friday yet?

It's been another one of those weeks kids!  Shouldn't it be someone else's turn for a crappy week by now?
  • Workouts have not been stellar,  I feel kind of like I'm getting my legs back under me after being sick.  And there's no time for half iron race is just 3 weeks from Saturday.  Freak out much?  Yeah, just a *little*.
  • Serious drama at work.  And despite that fact that I could see it coming, I just could not keep from landing right in the freaking middle of it.  On my run today, all I could think of was 'how am I going to get myself out of this center of this mess?'  Oy.  For a tiny (30 some people) company, there is some serious dysfunction.
  • The most craptastic news of the week though, was a call from the vet after Bam's annual appointment.  She has some elevated liver function tests which are, at the moment, unexplainable. So after getting stuck at work late yesterday talking to the vet, then scurrying to the vet's office to pick up some medication, we're at a 'wait and see' point.  For now, the assumption is that she has a bacterial infection.  She's getting antibiotics and some supplements that will help support liver function.  And all I can do now is wait 2 weeks until we get her blood drawn again.  Hopefully everything drops back to normal.  If not, well, we'll go from there, but the first thing may be an ultrasound to get a look at her liver.  For now, I keep my fingers crossed that the next lab test will be normal.  I know she's not a spring chicken anymore, but she's a very young 12+.   Be sure to hug your pups today!

"I don't feel sick.  I'm sure I'm fine.  Give me cookies."

That face clearly deserves LOTS of cookies. Tons of white light for Bam's liver to get back on track and behave itself, we will accept nothing less!

Two weeks is a LONG time to wait. Ugh! I forgot to tell you today but, I will definitely keep Bam in my prayers. She's such a sweetheart. <3

I sure hope Bambers is coming along OK. They say that dogs have no souls but all anyone has to look at is a dog and how happy he is to be with his owner. I can't believe that a Higher Being would let an animal that shows his love to his "parents" be left out in the end of his(the dog
I mean)life.
