Sleep Saturday

Hiker and I slept in some this morning. She woke me up around 5 am making that “throw-up” noise dogs make. She got down off the bed and headed for the living room where she coughed up a still solid treat I had given her last evening around 7 pm. She has a very bad habit about not chewing her food properly. She gulps it down most of the time. I don’t know how she enjoys the flavor because a lot of things I give her, she swallows whole.
I decided not to give her any more of those treats because if it didn’t dissolve in her stomach after 10 hours, I’m afraid that she may try to cough one up again and it might get caught in her throat and choke her.
Today I was having a little trouble focusing again. They told me that my vision would fluctuate for several weeks and it is doing just that. Yesterday, everything was pretty clear in both eyes but this morning each eye was wrestling with the other to focus. Had a headache most of the morning. That is why both my retinal specialist and the eye surgeon recommended I go with a contact lens in my left eye instead of just wearing eyeglasses with a non-prescription lens in the right eye. They both said there would be days that I would get bad headaches if I didn’t. Hopefully in a month, I’ll have that contact lens and my eyes will stop competing with each other.
Around 11:30 am, my headache was pretty much gone because I took some Tylenol. I decided to take Hiker up to Pet Smart to buy her some new dog treats since I tossed the ones that she coughed up. She loves going to Pet Smart because she knows they have treats behind the check- out counter.
Spent the rest of the afternoon watching an “Aerial America” marathon on the Smithsonian Channel. Fell asleep a couple of times.

  1. Do they make softer dog treats? Maybe that would be better? That would have scared me, seeing that he had had that treat for so long without chewing it!
    Good luck with your vision. x
