Back when Grady was going through his treatment, he was shaved in a bunch of places. A couple of those places I didn't think needed shaving, but by the time I noticed them it was, well, too late. The spot on his front leg started to develop black patches right away that I couldn't tell were fur or not. Then the perimeter of the bald spot on his neck started to get them. It was a long time before I could tell they were fur. You'd think it would be obvious, right? I asked a vet tech when I first saw them -- she couldn't figure it out either.

A couple of days ago I noticed that pink skin was no longer showing on his foreleg. The fur is noticeably shorter, but it covers everything. The other foreleg is catching up. His neck is also working on it, and looks kind of like a bad combover. Today I looked at his belly and saw that the hair was growing back there, too. My little buddy will soon have his moobs covered again.

Maybe with Ethan gone and me spending a lot more time in a quiet house has calmed Grady down enough for him to return to normal a little faster. I'm thinking that by the end of the month he will no longer look like something took a bite out of him.

As for the flu, it's gone, but the residuals are annoying. I'm still a little lethargic and can't exercise much, my sinuses still ache some, and I can't tell if my cough is from forgetting to take my stomach meds or some kind of chest cold. I feel okay to socialize, just don't ask me to go dancing.

...it's the flu. Inconclusive on the swine part, but definite on the Influenza A part. I am under quarantine, not to join the outside world until my fever has come down and stayed down for 24 hours.


Not unscathed

I could not stay awake at work today, had an esophageal spasm that hurt like a mofo, and developed a obnoxious throat-clearing habit that occasionally becomes a cough. I do have a small fever and my sinuses are questionable. The whole "falling-asleep-at-work" thing turned into "fighting-to-stay-awake-on-the-drive-home," which was scary as fuck. Once I pulled into the garage and turned off the engine I fell asleep in my car for a good ten minutes.

Hopefully this is just "con crud," because that tends to happen when large groups of nerds/geeks/dorks congregate. I will be doing everything in my power to recover no matter what it is, though -- I really don't want to have to cancel my shows this week/weekend.
