Woke up in the middle of the night yesterday with a stomach ache and ended up calling in which was nice since I was absolutely exhausted from my almost no sleep the night before thanks to Yara’s before dawn wake-ups. Seem to be fine today, but have no idea what the tummy pain was from.
Meanwhile, received my first bill from Verizon for my Internet service and nearly went through the roof. It was over $150 more than they quoted me when I set the service up. After being on hold for an hour, I found out that was because they charged me my installation fee in one lump sum — even though three separate people told me it would be in installments. The CSR told me I only had to pay half and that she’d be giving me a free month of service for the inconvenience. Somehow I see another long, aggravating call to Verizon about this.
Yara is being tapered off Prednisone, since she hasn’t been noticeably itchy in days, and I could not be happier! I’m relieved she’s feeling better, but I wish I knew what she had initially reacted to. She’s been eating a bit better. Well, at least for her. I’m still having to call her back to attempt to finish her food. It’s really the most frustrating thing.
Her one hot spot is nearly completely healed. The other, larger one, is also improving albeit at a much slower rate. She’s still on antibiotics for another few weeks, which seem to be giving her some pretty mushy bowel movements. But aside from that she seems to be just fine and her usual silly self. She was super happy to see Sharon on Wednesday and gladly showed off all her toys.
Frankly, though, it’s been a long week. I am seriously sleep deprived between my own stomach ache and Yara’s nightly steroid-induced antics. I’m sincerely hopeful that this is not an omen of the year to come because I highly doubt I can handle it. At least it’s finally Friday!
