Thanks man, he's still with us for now.

We did another round of tests and it's come down to "I don't know for sure" from the internal medicine specialist.

Could be a thyroid lesion, but it presents some aspects of that which don't fit. Could be lymphoma but not all those aspects fit.

Either way, I don't believe in surgery or chemo for pets, it's quality over quantity for us. So we're going to do a daily steroid because it seems to help and monitor his ionized calcium and ride this out as far as we can.

Yesterday I cooked up one of the shit-headed roosters and went and sat on the back porch with him and fed all the meat and skin to him. He liked that a lot.

Cattle Dhog is only six years old. Last month he started losing weight and his appetite went away. Did a hospital thing and got him stable, but everything came back nope, nope, nope. So we haven't been able to get a real diagnosis.

He leveled off for a month (Vet thinks the steroids helped him) but started crashing again over the weekend. Went to the Vet this morning thinking we were going to have to put him down, but we're throwing another big dose of steroids to see if we can pull him out again. If he seems a little better tomorrow I'll make an appointment with an internist and see if we can get some traction.

Best goddam dog ever, I guess I better hope we figure it out.

[update] He followed me by the fridge this morning and gave me a look. So I offered him up some tidbits of shredded chicken and he went for it. Maybe we got some action on this.

[update update] He's been getting a cupful of chicken and rice every three or four hours. Now whenever I slow down near the fridge, he trots over, sits down and gives me the very pointed food stare.

This census job has been totally wild. Unfortunately we will lose our funding in September and the entire country is in an economic meltdown. Concerned about the job search.
The good news is that I have basically been the "any task requiring a computer" person at this job, so my resume entry is immense. Making maps, making websites, writing code to run servers, troubleshooting people's excel sheets... everything. Right now I'm writing the maximalist version and then I'll get a friend from work (who does a lot of tech-person hiring) to help me edit it down.

Brooklyn this summer is intense. I guess everyone got the memo that doing things outside is relatively safe, so everyone is out on their stoops, grilling, shooting off fireworks, etc. The GF and I are looking for a one bedroom place and it seems that pickings are good. Everyone's desperate to rent out apartments that have been vacant for months.

Yeah, I'll buy it, if society is still using money at that point.

OK, my subconscious stress levels are finding things other than livestock to peal apart.

I've been dealing nightly with lost stuff, last night was a non-stop look for something/someone by truck and foot. Kept getting delayed and sidetracked, had a non-stop undercurrent of panic, never found my goal.

Turns out my sub-conscious is really basic. If it was a book it'd be a pop-up book with pictures, no text. I've been doing work stuff directly related to another round of layoffs that hit today. Yuck. I'm not cut out for plowing under the careers of people I've know for years.

I expect guilt dreams shortly.

Maybe the 1st time I was ever rude on the internet to someone else.
