Weddings and Whatnot

My best friend (Jessie) is getting married on Sunday! I'm so excited for her, I think I just might burst! XD They're just doing a Justice of the Peace thing right now and big wedding later after David (her fiancé) gets done with basic training and all that (he's going into the Air Force, I think).

In other, less joyous news, Faylinn had the last of her heartworm shots today. She still has to stay in her cage and have restricted activity for about another month, so we're not out of the woods just yet (hence the "less joyous" part).

[insert witty subject line here]

There's some expensive shit going on with the air conditioner coil thingy and the furnace in my house. I don't even really understand it--except that it's been leaking into the ceiling of my bathroom (which sucks) and totally ruining the ceiling (big honkin' mold/water damage ring around the vent). The heat and air guys are here replacing the coil (and wtf is the coil, btw? I am so clueless on this) and the furnace as I type. Which, really, is very awesome of them because it's still crazy hot/humid outside right now--especially so to be working up in the attic, where there's no air conditioning.

In other news, Faylinn has heart worms. We didn't know that when we got her, not that it would have changed anything; we just would have gotten her treatment sooner. She's not on the actual medication to get rid of the worms, but she is on antibiotics (and pain pills). We're having to keep her locked up, which I don't think she likes, but is tolerating it pretty well. We also have to keep her on a leash whenever she's out of the cage. This means I'm on puppy-poo/pee duty all day (I've been taking her out every few hours). I hate that she's so restricted in everything, but we have to do it or she'll die. She could have a heart attack, or a clump of dead heart worms could break off and get into her blood stream and make its way to her lungs and cause an embolism.
