*POOP Post Alert!*
For a while now, we’ve all noticed that Nala’s been pooping every single time she goes potty outside. I don’t poop every single time I go outside — usually I go about twice a day… occasionally three times. But Nala — that girl can go EVERY SINGLE TIME.
A couple of weeks ago, mommy noticed that Nala had been having trouble pooping. Then one day she noticed something red in her poop, so she called her doctor and brought in a sample. Thankfully, that came back negative, but they did say there were more red blood cells in it. So she made an appointment for Nala to see the doctor. Nala was NOT too happy about that.
Nala really does like being in the car, but it’s
the destination she gets worried about. She’s most
happiest when she realizes she gets to go back home.
She’s such a procrastinator just before
going inside the doctor’s office.
On the scale for the weigh-in!
Uh oh. Nala’s lost about 6 lbs!
Everyone has noticed that Nala’s gotten much smaller,
but they just thought that it was a natural process of
her getting older. She did just hit the ripe age of 14.
Nala did not like the wait before the doctor came in.
The doctor examined Nala all over, and mommy didn’t
get any photos ’cause she had to help keep her calm.
The doctor also took her into the other room to have
some blood work done. The doctor said that she may
have colitis, and so prescribed some antibiotics for her.
Nala couldn’t wait to get out of there!
The doctor brought Nala and mommy to the front.
After talking some more, mommy felt much better.
Nala update: Nala doesn’t seem to be going poop at every potty walk. She also has an easier time pooping (nice to know, right? Teehee!). The doctor had said to try and put more weight on Nala (no problem there — she’s always had a great appetite), so mommy’s been adding some extra goodies like chicken and bread to her meals twice a day.
So Nala’s gotta gain more, and I have to lose more. How’s that gonna work?
