Big day for Bubba. This morning, he was the opening act in our family trip to the vet. Dr. Batruch at the Front Street Animal Clinic is truly amazing and took us through the recent test results, our options, and the pros and cons of the Palladia treatment we’d been considering. Following the visit, we decided to proceed with the Palladia and carefully monitor our boy. We’ve also made an appointment to visit a homeopathic vet.
Suji rode shotgun on this one. She was mainly there for moral support.
We swung by the bank today so I could pick up my replacement VISA card after the last one was compromised (No, I did NOT use my card to try to purchase gas in Phoenix the other day). I’m a creature of habit, often frequenting the same restaurants and retailers, so when something like this happens, I tend to zero in on the out-of-the-norm places I recently used my card – and come up with two possibilities: a local restaurant and a pay-parking machine at a local lot. My suspicions lean toward the lot. I’m almost tempted to use another card to test my theory.
Apparently, Bubba’s life expectancy is 2-3 months but, aside from his hacking old man’s cough, you wouldn’t even know he’s sick. He walked a good ten blocks today, his appetite is healthy, and he seems in great spirits.
Bubba’s Bucket List begins and ends with food. Today, we took him to a place he’s been wanting to try for months – Bang Bang Ice Cream – where he shared some purple yam ice cream and a waffle cone with Akemi. I had a toasted hazelnut ice cream and chocolate chip cookie sandwich. That was some fine ice cream.
