I have been enjoying life too - thank goodness. A lot of my time at home is taken up by our new furbaby. He's super cute, but to see pictures you'd hardly believe he isn't quite six months old! He's 55 pounds and bigger than our Kiss (11 year old GSP) - on track to be bigger than my Dexter (7 yr old GSP)! Scout and I have been doing obedience class and I feel I haven't been as good a student as I should be - I'm just to tired to do much training after work. But then again, training is a part of my dogs daily lives - they have to at least SIT for a treat ;-)
There is just so much going on and I am CONSTANTLY tired. One of the last things my GI threw at me was something about
Gilbert's syndrome (sp?). I can't remember exactly what blood test was high, but he said not to worry as it wasn't THAT high. I keep wondering - why did he even say anything then? So I could freak out? I did look it up and of course I had most of the symptoms, but whatever! I think fatigue and many of the other things could be blamed on other things too.
Wakeboarding season is coming up soon too! I'll have to let something in life slide to make room for that fun :)
So, hopefully this endo thing doesn't bother me this summer! Although now that I'm aware of what it might be I will be able to monitor it better.
