We’re back! Finally moved back to Seattle from North Bend. I can’t believe how much of a difference it has made in our day-to-day lives! Even though we’re still driving a lot (we’re closer to everything but still doing a lot of activities, so still in the car a lot) we’re happier and feel like we’re spending more quality time with each other and at home. So life is good!
We’re living a in a tiny, but beautiful apartment. We have a great view of the city – although I can’t really see it! We haven’t unpacked except what we need (clothes and bathroom stuff and my laptop, of course) since we’re planning on moving again in about a month (to a much larger two bedroom – I’ll keep you updated this time, I promise!) So I am slowly, but surely, going insane in this tiny place.
Update on Titan: Poor dog. He has gone through SO much lately! We found out he ate something he shouldn’t have in October/November. In November, we ended up having him X-rayed twice and eventually, in December, he was diagnosed with ulcers. He started off on 4 different medications for ulcers, then eventually tapered down to 3 medications plus his anti-anxiety meds. He eventually (TWO MONTHS LATER threw up the foreign object he ate!) and was still getting sick. We took him back for regular check ups, and finally the doctor said that Titan needed to go to a specialist. Before we took him, Titan started having infrequent seizures. When we saw the specialist, he said he couldn’t do any procedures on Titan because of the seizures – they didn’t want to put him under. (He also said to take Titan off of ALL meds – including the anti-anxiety) So – enter the neurologist. We eventually (and I know most of you are shaking your heads in disbelief) had an MRI and an spinal tap done on him to ensure that there wasn’t a mass growing, causing the seizures. It seems that either the combination of medications was causing the seizures, or perhaps he has late on-set epilepsy. He has not (so far) had any seizures since he’s been off of the medication (no seizures since April!) Scary times, but he’s healthy and happy and no longer shows signs of the ulcers, either!
In other news – we have FINALLY chosen a wedding date! Things are starting to roll and we are officially making plans. In one year and five days, I will be married! Wow.
