Hot dog

Took Q-tip for a follow up exam by Doc Casey. Because she's not been exhibiting any unusual behaviour over the last week since her... excitement, Casey reduced her meds by a couple of pills.

He surmised that her unusual symptoms were due to her overheated state, which caused her heart and lungs to stress out to the point of inflammation which caused some minor tissue damage somewhere inside. Guess it was our mistake to take her for walkies in such scorching weather.

For now, we'll be administering a quarter tablet of Fortecor 5 and a capsule of anti-oxidant daily to strengthen her heart.

Next follow up will be in a month's time, then we'll see what kind of long-term meds she'll be needing, if necessary.

Entrances and exits

While there's been quite a progression of development over at the new place, it's quite a major pain to have to clear the old things we've been so comfortable living with and make way for the new occupants of our current abode.

Already, we've cleared out the entire guest room and the new owners are using it to store their stuff which they began moving in today.

The good news, for me anyway, is that they're not doing any renovations to this place but are moving in as is. Plus, they're taking over some of the stuff that we can't take with us, like the 29" CRT TV, our fridge, air-conditioning system, bookshelves and workdesk, otherwise I'd have a problem trashing them all.

Now, if only we could find a taker for the bed frame and the leather Lorenzo sofa. Doubt anyone would want the latter as it's been clawed to bits by MAUI!!!
