Our little patient is feeling quite a bit better this morning. Yay! His eyes are still gross, but he’s acting a lot more like his old self.

I think he really enjoyed having his cone off for a little while last night. He seemed a lot more relaxed (he slept on my lap for most of the evening) and drank A TON of water. He drank almost three bowls in less than two hours, which makes me think the cone is preventing him from drinking properly. Poor guy. He was so thirsty.

I kept dinner simple last night. I had a whole wheat wrap with ham, melted cheddar, and a little mayo.

And a salad on the side.

Murphy and I went to bed super early last night and then woke up bright and early this morning. I’m running a 5K, so I made sure to get some food in my stomach a few hours before start time. I had a whole wheat wrap with almond butter and banana inside.

I also drank a glass of iced coffee with coconut-almond milk.

Ahhh! I can’t believe I’m running a race this morning. I don’t know why I’m so nervous for it. I’ve run races much longer than this one, but my stomach is a ball of nerves right now. Maybe it’s because I registered for it so last-minute? Usually, I sign up for races months and months before race day, so maybe I have more time to deal with/manage my nervousness? I don’t know, but I have some serious pre-race jitters this morning. Wish me luck!
