I took Peanut to have her
hysterectomy spaying on Tuesday morning. I kind of knew I was pushing it on the timeline as she’s seven months now, but we been busy man!
The Nurse had the nerve to ask me:
Is her Vulva always that large?
Have you heard of a ruder question in your life?
I said “they’re like Snowflakes, no two are alike.”
Then she and I had a giggle. The nurse and me, Peanut found none of it entertaining.
I did notice the weekend prior some tiny red spots on our couch, but assumed she or Louie might have had a little cut on their paw. Since I’ve not had a puppy in many years, I didn’t notice the signs that the nurse shared that would indicate Peanut was in Heat.
- Needy (she’s been clingy-er)
- Nesting (she’s digging in blankets to get comfy)
- Grouchy (she went all Gremlin on Louie a few times when he pissed her off)
- Low Energy
- Wants to run away from home
- Doesn’t like female dogs
- Wants the attention of males
My poor little hussy, Peanut.
Now that I think of it, I exhibit some of these signs; maybe I’m in Heat? If you see me wearing a crop-top and stilettos anytime soon, please call the authorities. Oh wait, my spaying is scheduled for 3/9, so I’ll be off the streets soon!
I’d Push Down A Puppy If It Meant I Could Take A Nap.
I noticed a few weeks back that mid-morning, even after having my regular two cups of coffee, that I was, and I’m not exaggerating, having a hard time keeping my eyelids in the open position. I started to wonder if our regular coffee beans had been sucked of the caffeine without my knowledge. Eventually, I started having THREE cups of Joe in the morning with an iced tea with lunch, but I was still dragging.
This tiredness continued each day even though I felt like I was getting my regular (not so great, but enough) sleep. Occasionally the sleepies hit me in the afternoon as well as mid morning. I started wondering if I was dying. Like, isn’t tiredness a sign of impending death?
It’s been about 9 months since I had bloodwork, but I wondered if perhaps my Vitamin B levels were low; Off to the Vitamin Shop I went. I purchased some sublingual B’s and immediately popped one under my tongue before a moment could pass, or before I fell asleep at the wheel as I was heading to the gym. It’s hard to workout when you really want to lay on a weight bench and catch some Z’s.
It’s too soon to tell if the extra Vitamin B is helping and I have bloodwork scheduled for next month, so hopefully I can hang on until then. Send thoughts and prayers.
**Call me Slow Suz, but it dawned on me after I started this post that I started taking Nutrafol (for thinning hair) a while ago; one of the ingredients is ashwagandha which can cause sleepiness. *smacks slow, tired hands to tired head*
I suppose my motto is ‘ingest things now, research later’.
I explained this to the Coach and he said, so you can either have hair or be awake.
I’d really like to have both.
I’ll start taking the hair supplements with dinner instead of breakfast and see if that helps; I’ll update you as I know you’ll not be able to think of anything aside from my hair and my tiredness.
Anyone else inadvertently take something to ruin your days?
Has your lady Dr. or Veternarian been as rude as Peanut’s nurse?
Signed, your tired AF friend, Suz
