Tuxedo Cat And Health Update

I have to take my tuxedo cat in for a dental extraction this morning. They need to give him general anesthesia for that, which is dangerous, but after three days of the antibiotic Clindamycin, he's feeling much better than he was. This procedure is also quite costly, but he's a good cat, and I owe him the care.

I've been on a health kick myself, and have upped my protein intake by adding more eggs and meat to my diet. I do feel better.

I've been researching vitamin D, and probably get enough from sun exposure. I walk outside about 1-1/2 hours a day, usually with short sleeves. The body also stores vitamin D from the summer and releases it throughout the year.

My knees and feet have also been feeling much better, after I accidentally discovered that wearing 2 pairs of insoles in my shoes is better than one. I wear those Dr. Scholl's custom orthotic insoles, and surprisingly, two pairs fit in my shoes. This entry was originally posted at http://www.dreamwidth.org/12345.html.
