So...it's still raining in Ohio...but yesterday was a beautiful day which pumped my spirits considerably. Your kind comments pumped them even more (Thankyouthankyouthankyou!!!) and, as a result, I was inspired to complete the Luna Moth Shawl!
I stayed up way past my bedtime last night to get this puppy off the needles...and I was hyperventilating for the last 20 or so rows. Why? Um...because this is how much yarn I have left:
The update on the doggy front is optimistic. His feet are better, and we only had to use the evil e-collar for about 24 hours. However, the antibiotic has kicked up his tummy problems, so we're off to the vet to pick up some Reglan soon. Most interesting, though, is the change in his demeanor and some odd symptoms he'd been having since being on the Prednisone. I don't want to go into a long, boring laundry list, but the short story is that I'm suspicious that all these issues he's been having are a result of one of two things: a very mild case of vestibular disease or a mild case of focal myasthenia gravis. Will obviously be talking to the vet more about this. As much as I don't want him taking it, he is a much happier, less confused, and more energetic dog - in short, the Wilbur we've always known and loved - when he's on Prednisone.
The weekend awaits. I hope to get some weeding done (HA!) and make a big dent in the Evenstar Shawl which is my next goal now that Luna Moth is done.
