I have written several times about the problems Emma has been having walking. Last week, we found out she has arthritis in her spine and hips.
As I wrote last week, Ufi has been having problems urinating more frequently. Thinking the problem could be caused by the steroids he is taking for his allergies attacking his liver, we greatly reduced the dosage of steroids he’s taking and made an ultrasound appointment. Today, he went for his ultrasound. As the title indicates, his liver is fine!
Less than a week ago we got the good news that Mr. Rogers doesn’t have cancer. Now, we are worried about Ufi’s liver.
After my last personal update, I thought I would share news about Emma and Mr. Rogers.
This isn’t a happy personal update; in fact, it’s the saddest one I have written. Animals are wonderful friends. Watching them get old is so hard though.
It looks like spring is finally trying to spring. I won’t say it has sprung, because cool rainy weather may return this week. At least we have had a few nice days lately.
For a long time, Emma has been gaining weight. Even though she has always been lazy, I have been thinking her unwillingness to move has been getting worse. We have had her for more than four years, and we don’t have any idea of her age. Given that she had puppies before showing up in Mom’s yard, it’s likely Emma’s reasonably old. But today was scary.
This update has news about Ufi, Emma, my job, and some needed home improvements.
It has been another good week. Things are still going very well at work. I’m excited about what will be happening there.
This will be a quick update. It has rained all day and Kavanaugh’s looming confirmation to the Supreme Court has got me in a bit of a bad mood. I wish I was surprised by the shameful conduct of Senate Republicans, but I’m not.
