So, I'm not even sure if anyone is still following me but if so, stay tuned, I'll be back soon.

So, making a long story short. Little puppy hurt his back. Not sure how it happened but $310 later we have painkiller for him so he can at least sleep. It's been a rough couple days at our house. It started when the pup would wake up yelping like we were butchering him alive. It happened to coincide with a thunderstorm so we thought he may have been scared. It kept happening and we took him to an emergency vet because his belly looked distended. We left $80 poorer and no answers. He got worse last night and hardly slept. The mister took him to the vet this morning and they took x rays and there were no fractures or slipped discs. So the vet concluded he pulled a muscle. Sent him home with tramadol and he seems better after he took a nice long nap. Poor guy, he sounded so awful. It was torture listening to him howl and not being able to do anything for him. I'm hoping the next few days he will be better. When he isn't sleeping he plays like normal but we are trying to keep him as confined as possible without making him crazy. It's going to take a few days for him to recover. Ugh...I hate this.
Work has been crazy. We had AABB (American Association of Blood Banks) and the FDA show up this week. We knew about AABB but the FDA can show up whenever they want and that's exactly what they have done. Awesome.
Food has been boring, or in other words, exactly how it needs to be. Exercise has been intermittent since puppy arrived and nonexistent since he has been hurt. Sigh...life happens I suppose.

My dinner tonight consisted of a sweet potato and a cheese stick. My appetite has disappeared and when I am hungry, this is the kind of weird ass shit I've been eating. I'm guessing this is a combo of metformin and no weight lifting.
Sigh. At least I have the cutest fucking puppy ever.

Been busy taking care of this little guy. We picked him up on Thursday and have been "adjusting" ever since. He has been pretty good. He has only had a few accidents inside the house and it has always been on a piece of plastic that we have our plants sitting on.
Crate training at night has not happened because when we put him in there he whines like we are butchering him alive. So he has been sleeping in between us. It is OK now because he is only about 6lbs but this won't work so well when he is 90lbs. I'm hoping to work on that this week if I can get my husband to stop giving into him.
I gotta get back to snuggling with my little fur ball. :)

That sums up my feelings for today. I spoke too soon on the Metformin. I woke up Sunday nauseated and continued to have waves of nausea all day long. I never barfed but I sure as hell felt like I wanted to. It hasn't really gone away yet but the waves have become less frequent. Yesterday, I called out sick because I felt so shitty and proceeded to lay on the couch and watch Paranormal Witness on Netflix and scare the shit out of myself. I've been trying to eat, especially when I take the pills but absolutely nothing is appetizing. I wouldn't even eat pizza right now. Now I know why it helps people lose weight, because if you feel like you're going to yak, you won't eat anything.
As a result, I am taking a break from lifting weights this week because I could not handle lifting the way I do on an empty stomach while feeling like I want to hurl. I'm going to continue to take the higher dose for another week and if it doesn't get any better, I'm going to have to call the doctor and see what I should do.
We leave tomorrow to pick up our new puppy. It is a 6 hour drive from where we are so we are staying in a hotel tomorrow night and will pick him up from the breeder on Thursday and head home. I have a feeling it will be a long trip home because we will have to stop and let him burn off some energy and do his business. I'm off work half day tomorrow and through next week. The director of the lab is freaking out because I will be gone along with our supervisor. He's "not sure who he us going to talk to." Apparently he has forgotten about the 5 other techs we have that keep this lab going every single day. Whatever, I'll be on vacay.
I have been lurking around other blogs and everybody seems to be doing well. Yay for not being fat!
