I thought I would mention a few updates while I take one of my many study breaks tonight..
1. Macie is healthy. It's astonishing, and we continue to be amazed by how well she's doing for having her condition. We've been hoping since the beginning that what they saw on the chest x-ray wasn't a tumor on her heart, but it's still not clear what they saw. She'll get another x-ray done if her symptoms start coming back, which haven't re-appeared in two months.
It's really an incredible miracle. God has some great little wonders up His sleeve... Unfortunately though, through all this, we had to take her off her other meds which helped her with her itchy skin. She has turned into an itchy MESS! So she now has another appointment with a vet dermatologist.
And recently she's developed Horner's Syndrome, which is where her third eyelid is having problems retracting, so she looks like a 'Zombie puppy', according to my Mom.
Usually the problem corrects itself within a few weeks, which is also very good news!
I truly want to thank everyone for their comments and prayers for her, I think that made all the difference in her recovery.
2. I went to a Switchfoot concert last Thursday!! IT WAS AMAZING!! (You know who they are, right?! Well, if you don't, you'll be seeing lots of pictures of them soon... and you should check them out. duh.) They came to my school, it was a sold out event! Definitely one of my favorite shows so far (well, I've only been to a handful of concerts... so I guess that isn't saying much.)
3. I've been sticking to my weight-loss promise and I think I've been doing pretty good! I've been eating better than I have in my entire life, counting calories, and I've cut out crazy amounts of fat. I'm also taking Alli to help, and I'm exercising several times a week! AHH IT FEELS SO GREAT! So far I've lost 12 pounds, but I'm not celebrating until I hit my end goal, which is a LONG ways away.
That's all, better get back to studying, URGG I HATE TESTS!!
