He’ll be on some doggy anti-inflammatory drugs for a while and heating pads and laser therapy are encouraged, along with rest.
"Rest." Ha. The dog can’t walk from the kitchen to the bedroom without pulling crazy stunts like sliding across the wood floors (on purpose) or skipping stairs or spinning in circles. He doesn’t mind being carried though so I guess that’s an option? He could get pretty spoiled during all this. ;P
So here’s a personal post. TADA!
- Brought Cubby and MoJo to work this morning. Cubby had his teeth cleaned and I wanted Dr. O to look at MoJo’s right shoulder. He’s been limping, subtly but consistently, for about a month. Jeremy and I will just stare at him going “is that a limp? Is he limping? I think he’s limping….can you see it?” Hard to tell but we do notice it a lot. So they’re going to X-ray his shoulder here in a little bit, but Dr. O suspects bursitis. :( I didn’t know dogs could get bursitis! I’ll update y’all later.
- The blacklight Zumbathon fundraiser is tonight! I’m so excited. I’m going to decorate a hat and my pants with the glow-tape to match the shirt I decked out. I’m a little worried that our crowd isn’t going to entirely fit in the venue we’ve got tonight. There’s been such a huge response! But I guess that’s a good problem to have for a fundraiser!
- I screwed up several songs in my Zumba class last night. Back to back to back. Luckily I got my act together and was able to save the rest of class, but I’m just so glad I’m at a place where flubbing doesn’t give me a heart attack anymore! :)
- Jeremy has a bunch of stuff going on this weekend, so I’m hoping to “finally” watch the new episodes of Parenthood and Scandal. And I also noticed that (the only) Pride And Prejudice (that matters) is now on Amazon Prime so I may work that in too! *swoon*
The “Pee” Analogy The process of feeling hungry, experiencing a body-wisdom-based desire for a certain type of food, eating the food, stopping when satisfied, and then going off to do something else without another thought is “normal eating”. This is completely analogous to what occurs when you have to pee. You sense your body’s need, you relieve yourself, and then you go back to what you were doing. In both cases, you read a physical signal, meet the physical need, and give it no more thought. That’s normal. Now imagine what a strange world it would be if we were told that peeing had to be done on a schedule. We should pee four times a day, and it should be at four hour intervals, and we should only pee one cup at a time. If we need to pee in between times, we should hold it. If we want to pee more than one cup, we should hold that for the next time. Sound bizarre? That’s basically what a diet is. It is just as bizarre to regulate your eating according to arbitrary external rules rather than internal cues. Eating is a basic bodily function just like elimination. We don’t need to be told how to do it.
