Still keeping up the walking. I keep forgetting to charge the battery for the timer, but I increased my distance slightly and I bet it's darn close to 7 minutes rather than 6.

No more calf pain at last, but I'm definitely feeling it in my legs. I haven't bothered to step on the scale, I don't want to get focused on the idea that I *may* lose weight--I have to be doing more like an hour a day for those benefits. I'm trying to concentrate on the health aspect of it, as in it does me good to move around.

I have progressed from actively hating having to get up and go to merely being disinclined. It's a hell of a lot easier to get moving when I'm merely disinclined.

In other news, Rydia's eyes seem to be responding to the medication. I'm going to have Ben snap a picture with his chromebook to be sure, but it seems as though her pupils are less dilated and becoming more responsive to light. I'm also seeing better obstacle avoidance during the day, she's much less likely to bump something that is in her way. She's moving more confidently now regardless of whether it's because she's better adjusted or because she can see a little more. Her appetite is good, and she seems a lot healthier than she was.

Edit: It's DEFINITELY her eyes improving. Three pictures for you, under the same lighting conditions:

This was taken just before we started her on the blood pressure meds. Please note how dilated the pupils are:



This is tonight!!!!!




This is SO hopeful! :)


Mischief, on the other hand, is not doing so well. I'm going to call the vet tomorrow--it seems like she has a bad tooth and I'm going to want him to get a good look at it. We were reluctant to do this given her age, but she's clearly having a problem eating. It's not that she doesn't WANT to eat, she does--she's hungry, but she can only eat a little bit at a time. If it turns out she's got a bad tooth, it's way better to risk than anesthesia than to let her starve, that's for sure. More on this when I know more.
