Another crazy day at work. Well, the first several hours were pretty mellow for me because I was a machine operator today instead of my usual job. It's quite a nice change of pace to just worry about one machine, one job, sit down for a while in between tasks. Normally it's go go go, be ten places at once and do twenty things because you're everybody's bitch. Ugh. So yeah, it was nice at first, then it just all went to crap and I ended the day just as crabby as any other day. At least it's Friday and I have three days off now.
Lynx (aka Fattycat) has been off the potassium supplement for two days now and it seems like there is an improvement in him already. I thought maybe I was crazy. I mean, geez, we thought stopping the powder would just make it easier for him to eat his food. We didn't think there would be some obvious difference in health and behavior. So I looked it up, just to see what side effects might be associated with potassium supplements and was floored by what I saw. Muscle weakness, upset stomach, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite. Well, he'd lost weight and was looking rather skin and bones-ish again, he wasn't eating as much, he was sleeping all the time and very blah when he was awake, and he was wobbly. So yeah, pretty much all could be side effects from the potassium powder. So yeah, it could be safe to see there actually is a noticeable difference in him now without it. He already looks a little more hydrated, he's awake more and alert during those times. He's social. Yes, I think stopping this powder was a good choice.
Got a couple small packages in the mail, so hopefully I'll get a little crafty haul posted tomorrow.
I'm off to bed now to read about my new fairy boyfriend, Mark.
