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.
In this personal update I discuss:
- Ufi’s adjusting to steroids
- My recovering from illness
- The best book I have recently read
- Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process
- An important anniversary
Ufi and I were waiting for the bus at a busy intersection. A vehicle, which turned out to be a paratransit bus, was broken-down in front of the bus stop.
Most of my posts about Ufi have dealt with his allergies and our struggle to get them under control. So, I thought it was time to write about some of his great work.
Last weekend, Mom noticed that Ufi had a sore on the inside of each of his back legs. I missed the sore, because he loves it when I scratch his tummy. She tried trimming the matted hair around the sores and we applied some Neosporin. We would have done more, but Ufi is a terrible patient. He cries at the slightest touch when it’s a touch he doesn’t want. The sore got a little better, but Ufi kept wanting to lick off the Neosporin.
