Action/Reaction

I talked to Brandon about his 2 days of blowing me off. I told him it made me feel like crap; like he didn't care, and didn't think about me. He said that wasn't true, he's just really bad about remembering his phone, and he promised to work on it. And so far, I've already noticed an improvement!
On Sunday, he sent me a text early in the morning before he left for his golf tournament, just to let me know he wouldn't be able to answer the phone till it was over. 
And while I've been planning things on my own, he's actually been making more of an effort to hang out with me! It's amazing what a little communication and a taste of his own medicine can do. 
So Todd is in town for his spring break right now, and he keeps asking me to hang out. Which is...odd for him. I guess I'm just used to him being so busy and distant all the time that it seems kind of strange that he's the one calling me! We were supposed to go have drinks tonight, but unfortunately, I had to bail because I've had a horrible stomach ache all day. Ugh. I'm worried I might have salmonella poisoning! Last night I made myself a fluffer-nutter (BEST SANDWICH EVER!) with some peanut butter from the back of my pantry. I didn't even think twice about the peanut recall! Until today when I woke up with cramps and an upset stomach. But I haven't thrown up or anything so maybe it's just a stomach ache! 
So I took Jasper for his first vet appointment Thursday and they gave me quite a scare! I told the pet nurse that his stool was loose and the first thing she said was "Oh we better test him for parvo", which is a DEADLY DISEASE!! Omg I was totally freaked. Turned out they couldn't even test him for it, because they had run out of the tests. But he did turn up positive for some kind of protozoa which is easily curable. So they gave me some medicine for him and we were on our way. 
But as of today, it's been 5 days since he's started his medication and he still has diarrhea! So I took him back to the vet today, completely panicked! They told me that as long as there wasn't blood in his stool, then it was nothing to worry about. I just have to wait until he's finished out his medicine. ((Sigh))
Tomorrow I'm starting a new photography class! I'm really excited! That's about all that's been going on around here.
Oh, and FYI, I took one reader's advice and I'm putting some ads up on the site. But if they're too distracting or take away from the site, I'll remove them. I just wanna try it out!

Try switching out his dog food with brown rice for a day. My vet recommended that to me once and it helped my pup immediately.

When we gave our new pets some meds they recommended adding some yogurt to her food to help with the diarrhea... try it out!!
