I haven’t had much time to sit down and write up some recap posts on my weekend (the wedding and the marathon) because Sophie is a very sick little girl 😦 On Monday night the bf and I saw that she wasn’t feeling well: not eating, panting, pacing, and shaking uncontrolably. We took her in to the emergency vet and, while they gave her an x-ray, they couldn’t figure out exactly what was wrong. Just that she had a ton of gas in her tummy. After another vet visit yesterday (Sophie’s regular vet), we were able to pinpoint an extremely painful area on Sophie’s back. We think that she may have a compressed spinal disc, which is causing the pain and the shaking. After some anti-inflammatories and other pain med, Sophie seems to be feeling better but it’s up to me to make sure she is resting and lies very still so she doesn’t exacerbate her back.
SO I am still looking forward to doing some recaps of the weekend and the marathon–and especially venting about how I walked FIVE miles after the marathon to get back to my hotel since there was absolutely no way I would ever get on the transportation. It was probably the worst executed post-marathon I’ve ever seen and I would expect more from the marines!
I’m hoping that Sophie feels a bit better tonight so the bf and I can go out with some friends for halloween. We’ve got a really “special” costume haha. You can check out our costumes (yes, plural) from last year, here.
You dressing up for Halloween?
What has been your favorite costume you’ve ever worn, as a kid or adult?
