Yesterday was rough. I nearly froze walking to/from work, I missed the bus home 😦 & was welcomed by a lovely accident Eisley left on the spare bathroom [fortunately hard] floor near the toilet…it was as if she knew.
Dave is amazing & offered to take on cleanup duty while I walked the
naughty girl. Honestly, we are not going to [fully]blame her. We recently [meaning yesterday], increased her calorie intake by quite a significant amount because she has been losing weight — even though I feed her just over the recommended serving. Could I really expect her tummy not to be upset while it adjusts to the increased digestion? Was it reasonable to think she could hold it 8 hours?
I learned; so this morning I was up at 5am walking her so she could do her business, eat then do her business again at 7am before we left. Phew! Cross your fingers with me.
She is still adorable.
At her checkup on Monday, I learned she has lost nearly 2 pounds since we moved!! Already a tiny, wiry little thing, every pound is vital. Guess she has a metabolism like her dad. 😉 We will increase her calorie intake for a couple weeks to see if that helps; otherwise, we will have to draw blood to test for deficiencies. 😦 I feel like such a bad mommy. I promise I am not starving my girl.
