Doggie Dash, Health and the Heat Wave

The Doggie Dash was a lot of fun. I am sad that my dog wasn't able to participate, but he doesn't know the difference. I was able to get him a lot of treats from the vendors. I think I got a weeks worth of food for him in samples. 

This is the cutest picture I captured: 

I was trying to get more photos, but it was hard to walk and shoot at the same time. The Humane Society was trying to beat the world record of "most costumed dogs in one location". I don't know if we beat the record. 

I did my follow up with my rheumatologist and although she did not have answers, she said she would help me with whatever referrals I needed. So at least she has my back. I have to see my primary again tomorrow, so hopefully I'll be moving right along with everything. But Sjogren's has been completely ruled out. 

Yesterday we were in the mid 8os and today we'll be close to 90 degrees. We'll have another hot day tomorrow and then go back to our normal mid-60s. It's not a really nice heat... really muggy and humid. I hope it's nice wherever you are and remember to wear sunscreen!

I have been quite busy and have neglected my blog. I have had several appointments, started my gardening (I am going to grow several herbs this year) and have been helping my parents out. 

I have my follow up with my rheumatologist this week and I don't know what she'll suggest. I hope she still isn't stuck on "it may be Sjogren's" when I had negative results for all the tests. I really hope she doesn't pile on medication either. A lot of that would be experimental anyway. I think it's time to move in a different direction. 

The Doggie Dash is this weekend and my beloved Kamana won't be able to go. His hips hurt too much. I am still going with a friend and I will be sure to post some photos. 

I'm so glad it is getting closer to summer though. Other than gardening, I'm not sure what I'll end up doing. 

If you are gardening this year, what are you growing?
