It's Tuesday!

Tomorrow is one of my interviews for one of the PhD programs. I'm fairly nervous just because I'm not very sure what they are "looking" for and interviews in general are "scary." I think I should be fine, but I also need to plan my route. Wish me luck!

Last night I had rehearsal for the murder mystery dinner show. The first time we ran it, I was a little iffy on one of my lines and as soon as I realized which it was, I was totally fine. The second time I knew all my lines/when to come in and it ran smoothly for me. I hope it is that good for the actual performances!

Update on Tuffy:

At the vet on Saturday, we were told that the cyst in his tummy was not looking good. Well, we decided to run a blood test to check for common problems in older dogs. His liver levels were a bit high but nothing super abnormal, there was blood in his urine which could be an infection or early signs of kidney disease (and that would just require medication), he had parasites in his poop (that actually disturbed me - I'm not sure how he got that. Some of the other dogs have had that in the past, but not recently - when was he exposed to this?!?), and his sodium is low (means he might need special food).

So yeh - here I was super worried about cancer and I thought that it would have affected all of his other organs, but apparently this is not the case at all. The issues listed about apparently have NOTHING to do with his cyst, and they believe the cyst is an "exterior" thing rather than "interior."

And the vet believes he still has another 2 -3 years to live! He is 13 1/2 and that is great news!!

In the meantime, he has various antibiotics ($87.10 worth) that will hopefully clear up the above problems. I'm just glad to hear the diagnosis isn't as bad as I thought!


"No Nest for the Wicket" is really cute so far. I will probably be able to finish it this evening and have enjoyed it!

Glad to hear Tuffy is going to be ok. I know exactly how you feel as I have a dog too and love her to bits. It is normal to think the worse when your dog is sick.

I'm really glad to hear Tuffy is doing well! My dog just had surgery on his eye today, so I will keep Tuffy in my thoughts and prayers when I'm thinking about my dog. : )

Hog just had worms in his poop too. i was also deeply distubed! butttt it's not that bad. they get it from eating a flea or flea egg.. so like hog was probably munching on some grass outside and ate a flea/egg...
