-colon something, though this is usually treated with Immodium, which has not been helping me.
First one is easiest to check - I'm on a lactose-free diet for 3 days. I'll be cutting out cheese as well, even though technically most of my favorites have the lactose processed out of them.
Down to the lab, 15-minute wait to get the home test kits (three of them) and another 15-20 minutes for the "since I'm there and fasting" blood draws.
To the kennels, showed the nice lady Domino's rabies vaccine tag (good till 10/2013) and the Banfield paperwork showing she is up to date on all her shots (though she needs one of them in October), so we're all good there. I still need to write the equivalent of a DNR order for her. The idea being that at her age, Domino is best put out of her misery than prolonging it with expensive treatment which will not help in the long run.
Home, had a banana, read the instructions for the home tests with Domino trying her best to read with her front paws on my arm and her butt on the recliner arm. Decided the tests will have to wait. Put together some lactose-free lunch and took it to work. Bagel, margarine, lox, pickle spears (home made), can of sardines, caffeine-free diet Coke, 1/4 bag of saltines. May also snag a banana from the company fruit basket, if there are any left.
