I mentioned before Christmas that we were watching my liver levels. Well, the test was 11 days ago and I still haven't heard anything. On one hand- each time the levels have come back high I have gotten a phone call within a week to tell me we had to re-test. On the other hand- it is the holidays so the lab could be running with lower staff. I don't know what to think. I would like to speculate (thinking positively) that when I called to move my appointment from January to February yesterday that they would have mentioned it if there was a reason for me to come sooner but they didn't. So I am holding on to hope.
The pups are doing very well in my estimation. Miss Harley put Auggie in his place yesterday when he tried to take her rawhide which for my super mellow pup is amazing. Yesterday when I crated him before work he started to wimper and she went and sat by the crate with him. I am sure that she didn't spend the whole day there, but when Jim came home- she was there again. Last night they both spent the night in our bed and right now they are curled up on the couch about a foot apart. I am really looking forward to this weekend when we have four full days at home with them. We did have an "accident" from him last night before our walk, but I am hoping that it was because he is not used to our routine yet and not because he is not fully house trained. Either way- we will work through it. My parents invited us to bring both babies down this weekend but I think it is best that we keep them here and let them bond and let him get used to our routine before we take him someplace new (and potentially soil their beautiful carpet) and to meet new people. I also need to get used to controlling the two of them on leash as they are very different in how they walk and I pulled a muscle in my back this morning trying to keep them both going. Even so- I am feeling blessed that we got him.
I asked on Twitter about Resolutions yesterday and I got the best answer from @LupusChick. She said her resolution was to laugh more. I love that. I am definitely adding that to my list! I hope you all have a wonderful day.
