So n the plus side of things, I lost another pound. Progress.
But on the other side, my dog died this morning. She was 17. Even though she was insanely old, and I knew this day was coming, it's still hitting me really hard. She'd been getting progressively weaker and more frail. She was arthritic, she went deaf, she had a host of old dog health problems. But yesterday she was so perky...playing in the yard, bringing me toys. She collapsed in the middle of the night, and I ended up at the emergency vet at 4 in the morning discussing "aftercare options", as they put it. My house is so empty. I want my friend back.
