Hi, friends! Happy Friday! I have a few updates for you guys—two are good, one is bad.
Update #1: Our little pug-ster is feeling so much better.
We took him to the vet for a check-up yesterday afternoon and his eyes are just about heeled. Yay! The vet said we could stop giving him his eye meds, so Murphy is really happy. The poor guy actually started running away from us all panicked as soon as we’d go to get them.
The pug has healthy eyes, but…
… now has a weird growth on his lip. Wtf, Murphy?
Just in case you missed it:
The vet wasn’t sure about the growth (it’s not a pimple), so he suggested a needle aspiration biopsy, which would cost us a buttload of money, so we’re going to wait a few days to see if it goes away on its own. The growth popped up out of nowhere last week, so maybe it’ll go away just as quickly? I sure hope so!
Update #2: Our bathroom is being painted right now.
Mal couldn’t stand the green walls in our bathroom, so he volunteered to paint them a more neutral color, which, even with just one coat, totally brightens up the room. I’m excited to see the final product!
Update #3: My colon is unhappy.
I guess I jinxed myself by saying I was flare-free in yesterday’s post because now all signs point to a potential flare. Boo.
Over the past few days, things haven’t been quite right, but I thought my issues were just caused by something I ate. Unfortunately, I got confirmation (bleeding and cramping) this morning that things are progressing in the wrong direction. I immediately called my doctor, who put me back on Lialda. So much for being off drugs—that didn’t last long.
Let’s hope things get back to normal ASAP!
Question of the Day
I’m kind of bumming about this colitis stuff, so give me an AWESOME update about your life!
