Can't say that today was an especially good day.
Just like every other Friday, I started school at 8:30. The downside, aside from being tired, is that my professor decided to play Loreena McKennitt to demonstrate how poetry and music go together. I like Loreena McKennit but listening to her, with the lights off, while tired, not a great idea.
After another two fantastic hours of class, I had to walk home. It was windy and really freaking cold. I almost slipped a fell five times. Arm flailing helps with maintaining balance. It does little to maintain dignity. Then again, I suppose my dignity would suffer a lot more if I actually fell.
My ass finally started to unthaw by the time my dad came home about two hours later. Meeko's been having a hard time breathing lately. He sounds like he's trying to breathe through a clogged straw. It's been particularly bad the last few days so we finally took him back to the vet. Visit number 4. About 500$ later, Meeko was at last sort of diagnosed. It's either a tumour in his larynx or he has some kind of paralysis in the area of his larynx. Regardless of what it is, there's pretty much nothing to be done. He's relatively okay, aside from sounding atrocious and the super positive diagnosis. So, as you can imagine, great cap to the day. He was given an anti-inflamatory. We're supposed to wait until tomorrow to see if it helped. If it hasn't, the vet wants to sedate him and take a closer look.
Obviously, I'm most upset about Meeko. Upset probably isn't the best word, but it's the word that will keep me from losing it again.
Yup, fan-friggin'-tastic day.
