  • Haul/Rediscoveries: Charlotte Tilbury Stars In Your Eyes Palette, Guerlain Rouge Gs
  • Weekend plans: Definitely going to go for a couple of walks around the neighborhood now that the temperatures have cooled down some! It’s been a rough week here, so I’m hoping to catch up on sleep and spend some time with Mellan and hubby. Back story: Mellan had a very, very brief episode of lameness (so fast that we’re not 100% sure he was lame, as he got up and then walked normally within 25 seconds) followed by a yelp when pet on his rear once a couple of days later… so I scheduled an appointment with his orthopedic surgeon to see how his hips/knees are doing. He’s been fine for two months, and I kept the appointment as a check up despite him being normal/fine; his ortho felt that his hips had great range of motion for his age/diagnosis, knees were as expected (nothing we can do for them at this time), but found he was reactive/sensitive in his lower back area. We headed to the neurologist this week, and she conducted a thorough physical exam and his preliminary diagnosis is type II intervertebral disc disease; they need to do an MRI to diagnose more definitively, but it requires full anesthesia, which I’m hesitant to do based on his age, liver diseases, and he’s already been under twice this year. His only symptom is mild pain when his lower spine is pressed on but he has no neurological deficits at this time, so we are going to manage it conservatively and keep a watchful eye on him if he limits his physical activities at all. Just one more thing to add to his medical novel ๐Ÿ™
  • Do you have any autumn rituals?: I have at least one pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks, though I’ll say since switching to making my own lattes… it didn’t quite hit the spot. However, I did enjoy the caramel apple spice, so I think that’s going to be my new fall drink ritual!
