RBOC: Busy day edition

  • My kitty seems a bit better today. She ate some food last night and still keeps asking for it today (even if she doesn't eat much).
  • I was work for 9 hours, so I am pooped. And so losing my patience with slacker students who whine about everything. I recently emailed my whole Fancy-Way-to-Study-Things class to remind them that their lab work is worth a large portion of their grades and that they better put in the effort. Then got a another stack of sub-par work today. So you want to fail? Go right ahead!
  • I am taking D to see a specialist about her recurrent stomach issues tomorrow. I am still worried that they'll say nothing is wrong and send us home. I'm also frantic to remember everything that her stomach has ever done to tell this doctor. I'm also worried about what tests they might want to put her through. She's been in one of her phases of feeling good for the last several weeks, but I know it won't last forever. Whenever this happens, I start to think maybe it IS just nerves. I guess we'll see.
  • I'm really excited to see who will be on Dancing with the Stars. It's pretty much the only totally frivolous TV I watch and I LOVE it!
  • Monday's over, and the rest of my week will be easier, AND next week is Spring Break. I can't wait for a break from teaching.

I assume you've ruled out food allergies? Like tried to identify what she might be eating that causes this and removing things from her diet?

I am so glad Kitty is doing better.

Hope you get some answers to D's stomach issues.

I can't wait for DWTS too!

I had lots of stomach issues as a kid, but they turned out to be mostly nerves and I grew out of it when I learned better coping skills. I remember that I used to puke almost every week before my piano lesson, but it took a long time to link my guilt and anxiety over not practicing to the nausea. I think I was in 3rd or 4th grade.

I hope D's problem is something simple.

Always write down symptoms, as you'll never remember the times/dates.
