I hope he likes it! It's a banana cake with peanut butter frosting. It's way too much cake for a 5-pound dog, so I guess I'll give him a slice of cake every day until it's gone.
We celebrated Valentine's Day early this year since I only "cheat" on my diet/lifestyle eating habits once a week, and usually on Friday, never Tuesday, which is Valentine's Day. I was so sick on Friday, so we went to dinner last night (Saturday). We had a lovely time, Mark spent a small fortune on dinner which isn't ununsual for us, but this was really over the top. He surpised me with a ring I had been wanting since Christmas:
The doctor gave me Flovent as an inhaler for my cough variant asthma, and when I started it, I also stopped the antibiotic for the dermititis the dermatoligist had given me, which had seemed like made my coughing much worse. Well the day after I stopped and started both, I got really sick. That night I went to bed, and I stayed in bed for the next two days. I felt like I had the flu, I couldn't eat, I took everything we had in house to try and feel better and NOTHING worked. I had considered Thursday night calling my doctor the next day and going to see him on Friday, but when Friday rolled around, I just wanted to stay in bed.
Yesterday, Saturday, I felt better, so I searched for reactions from Flovent. One of them that you should "call your doctor immediately" about is flu like symptoms! Ugh! But if that were true and I'm still using it, wouldn't I still feel like I had the flu? I honestly don't know what is wrong with me at this point. Sometimes I think, "Is it all in my head? Am I making myself cough?" I know I can't help it, but if I think "don't cough", I cough so much more. When I forget about it, I cough so much less. But there are "triggers" that make me cough uncontrollably, just like there are triggers in bipolar disease. Of course, I cough all the time, but just when it gets really bad. I'm afraid to go back to the doctor on Tuesday and he'll say "There's nothing wrong with you!", and then what will I do? It's SO like being bipolar, you just want a LABEL on it, for someone to tell you, "YES, there IS something wrong with you, and YES, there IS something we can do to fix it!" Mark still keeps hoping I have an infection.
I plan on running today, even though it's freaking cold and that's one of my "triggers". I haven't run since Monday because I've been sick and frankly, I've been scared to worsen my cough. But I can't lose momentum, I worked too hard to get to where I am and to just stop and have to work back up to where I am now, that would suck majorly. So even though it's about 20-30 degrees outside, I'm going to see if Mark will go to a trail with me and run this morning when he gets up.
