Today feels like a better day already. I am anticipating that my mood will plummet later today so I am going to try to waylay that as much as I can.
Sleep: Woke up too early, but feel better anyway.
I did a little sewing while watching Bob's Burgers after work (to unwind) yesterday. Tonight, I'll finish Hulky's t-shirt. It won't take long. Slicing out the template from freezer paper will be the longest part, since I don't have an exacto knife (using a knife from a multi-tool, it's pretty sharp but not very thin). I know what I'm making for dinner, just need to let the ground beef defrost in a bowl of water when I get home.
I biked today. My body feels good. I expect my shins to hurt later, so I will probably ice them tonight. I read somewhere that if you can do a 30-second negative pull-up or chin-up, you should be able to do a normal one, so that's going to be the goal. Doing negatives feels more productive than supported chin-ups. I do need to do a set of support chin-ups before I can do controlled negatives though. I guess it helps me warm up.
Cats: One of them has blood in their stool . I suspect Pumpkin, since she's the one who had the weirder poop and let's not forget the tapeworms/fleas when we got her. Her poop smelled atrocious when we first got her and was very voluminous and soft. I sprinkled a probiotic capsule on her food for a while and that helped with the odor. Switching her to raw fixed the odor completely and the consistency hardened a little (which is good, also got less voluminous but still larger than Fae's), but the blood is a very recent change. Today, I added 1/4 tsp of soaked chia seed to their meal and will do so again tonight (may increase to 1/2 tsp), which should help with any constipation. I'll monitor over the next few days to see how this changes their stool. They tend to share a litterbox so this will take some finagling to figure out. I might get some plain pumpkin puree to mix into their food. That's supposed to be good for both diarrhea and constipation for cats and dogs.
Itch: I need to get back in to see that doctor. I got some more information that will hopefully lead to a better treatment plan.
