Because I have the blog. Might as well cross-post between Facebook and here.
He spent the day vomiting. Like, everywhere. Long after there was no more food to expunge. Horrific hacks of foam. More like lattes, really. And then he couldn’t stand up for more than a few seconds. So off to the vet hospital. Several hundreds of dollars later, nothing new to report. Sent home with Cerenia and bland food. Wednesday and Thursday were really good days for Herman…the Gabapentin seems to have helped his back leg. But this was not a good day. I guess I should start that exercise of logging my pet’s quality of life from day-to-day.
Since I don’t post such updates anymore, I should mention that this comes a couple days after a night of two seizures, which follows two other seizures over the last few months.
And he’s got severe lameness in his hip…can’t bear weight on left hind leg.
Herman just made it all the way around East Campus. That means I did, too. I say this as if we’ve never done this before. Not enough times, for sure.
New pics of Herman with the new camera. Perhaps I will start getting him outside more so every picture is not of him on the couch or on the rug.
I know it’s not unusual to see two dogs playing. But I’d never seen Herman like this until today.
It’s 60 degrees and rainy now, but one week ago, Durham was getting around seven inches of snow, and I drove out anyway to go to Charlotte.

Herman looks around, 8:30AM
Heading out around 9AM…notice the snowman at the intersection of Green and Onslow
Duke East Campus, heading West on Markham
Durham Freeway, headed North toward I-85 South
Accident on I-85 South in Hillsborough; conditions began to improve shortly thereafter, for me, at least (not sure about the driver of the truck)
Herman knows the cat is very close. I am not sure he is aware that Aremid is actally on top of him, separated by a blanket. In turn, Herman’s head is resting on my gut.
This is unrelated to any happenstance that’s occurred or thought I’ve had recently. It’s just a cat in a box. I dripped pineapple juice on my keyboard a coupld of days ago. The keys were a bit sluggish. I sprayed the keyboard with Windex. This killed my keyboard. Fortunately, Lenovo had sent me an extra keyboard due to uneven customer service awhile back. So I’ve got this extra one. But I lack a long mini-PH screwdriver to remove what essential screw needed to remove the current defective keyboard and insert a new one.
Thank goodness for my new work Lenovo. And that’s all I’ll say about my new job for now.
I’m off to sleep now, as I need to get up early for work, and I am exhausted, perhaps due in part to having skipped dialysis on Friday for a very good cause. I must solve the puzzle of how to get adequate regular dialysis. There’s a good deal riding on this puzzle being solved.
I digress…I just wanted the photo of Aremid in the box.
I love this cat so very much; let there never be a question. One casual acquaintance who did question this was dumped as a FB friend this weekend. I think the researchers who say we can only handle 50 friends have a point.
I digress again…I could go on and on about lots of stuff…but I will not…
