Momof4, go take your meds! It can only make things better.

Sleet/snow is falling here. Tomorrow will be day 3 of 6am shifts. After work I have a test, that is if they don't close the college. Eating and working out is going ok. Gotta get to bed.

Go take your meds anyway. I get like that too, and it only makes things worse if I actually stop them.

Tuffy's appetite was good this morning. She is too weak to walk, so we take her to the litterbox and bring her food and water. Hubby didn't want to take her to the vet again, at first, because we've already spent over $600, and she seemed like she wasn't going to last much longer. But since she's getting stronger now, if she makes it till Friday we'll take her back and get her on anti-seizure meds. She has not had a seizure since Sunday. Since the vet thinks she might have a brain tumor, hubby could be right about her time being near.

LBF-- I am sorry to hear about your cat . I had to put a cat to sleep a few years ago due to Cancer. I spent a small fortune on her with 2 Cancer surgeries. I miss her dearly , but the day after she was put to sleep my mom's co-worker found an adorable kitten hiding underneath her car leaving for a lunch break . That cat , Darby , has been a member of the family now .

momof4!!!

and yay for Tuffy for hanging in there.

I hope everyone is doing as well as they can be. The days are getting lighter earlier and staying lighter longer, that is always a wonderful thing.

llmw -- sorry to hear about your kitty -- I have a 13 year old mixed Shepherd /Retriever who is my absolute buddy -- I hate the fact that he is getting older and older ... I do walk him for 3 blocks every morning and I think that is helping him ---

ahh and stress does lead to extra eating .... well it does for me --
when I am calmer , I don't eat as much but when my real job is stressful , ALL I WANT to do is EAT !! ugh

Just back from the vet. Good news!! Tuffy does NOT have a brain tumor. She has extremely high blood pressure, which could explain everything, and which is far more easily treatable.

Tuffy! Sounds like she may be on the road to recovery now that you know the real problem. I'm so glad for you Lovebirds.

I was off today and watched it snow for hours. Unfortunately it is now raining/sleeting instead. It's supposed to go back to snow during the day tomorrow while I'm at work. The rain is keeping us from getting completely buried I guess.

Not much news here. I made an A on my anatomy test. Yay. I have still been eating well and exercising. I'm so astonished and grateful for this I can't tell you. I don't know why I'm sticking to things now but I'm not complaining. Gonna get to bed now since I have to get up so early.

Hope you all have a great weekend.
