So today I woke up to a dog jumping on my bed. As soon as I realized it and my head hit my pillow, my alarm went off. I turned my alarm off and decided to go back to bed.
When I finally woke up an hour later, I looked at my phone (which the first thing I do when I wake up). My friend Stacy and texted me to see if I wanted to go to breakfast. I have to say my timing was pretty good because I had noticed the text almost 15 minutes after she sent it. So I we worked out a time for breakfast, and I got ready for the day.
We tried this place downtown, which was new to all of us. It was a pretty decent place, you could tell that it had been around for a while. I forget the name of it, but it was good. After that we went to Target (Stacy bought a sweater for her cat Tini, which was funny). I bought some more stuff for Jesse's care package, which of course has far exceeded the amount of goodies that a sane person would! We headed back to my house to work on my project of the day.
I made all the stuff I planned on making: pumpkin bread, orange cream cookies, and peanut butter cookies. I watched probably 2 disks of CSI while making cookies - it seemed to take forever! I also arranged, cut, packaged, and vacuum sealed everything to send. I am very tired.
Then I realized that my dad left my dog out for an hour unattended, and I only realized this when he "pawed" at the door (it sounds like he ran into the door with his head). I let him in, and then was getting a good look at him. I had to wrestle around for his feet to clean them off, and I've been noticing some strange things happening to his face. I realized today that I wasn't crazy, his face was swollen! It's around his eyes, nose, and lips. It's nothing too crazy, but noticeable nonetheless. So, my first task tomorrow morning is getting the big boy into the vet to likely get a shot. I don't know what he stuck his face in, or when, because I noticed he seemed to be developing a bump on his nose yesterday. Only today did I notice his hair and lips look quite strange, and feeling it with my hands I almost panicked. It doesn't feel like anything big like cysts, but it is very bumpy. It scared me! He's not lethargic or having any issues with food (if anything he's eating more), so I'm not rushing him into an emergency vet. But it has moved to the top of my priority list tomorrow!
I hope everyone has a great week this week, I know for many of you it is only a 3-day weekend. Have a great week, and I will be posting often!
