today was jasper liliths 6 month wellness checkup and she is doing fine…she is at 20 lbs. & 2 ounces and 27″ long…so in the last two months, she gained a lb. and grew an inch…she got her 6 month vaccinations and i was very glad to hear that she won’t be getting any more shots until she is a year old…yay!!  she screamed and hollered, of course, but calmed down fairly quickly…she is asleep right now…

wish us good weather here – the north texas irish festival is this weekend and we are going to go tomorrow or sunday…can’t wait, should be beautiful weather for sitting on the grass and listening to the musicians… 

UPDATE:  jasper reacted to one of her shots a little – her right leg got hot and swollen and she was sensitive to me touching it – and by sensitive, i mean would cry…i gave her some tylenol and set cold compresses on her leg for a while to see if those two things would bring the swelling down and luckily, they did…she didn’t seem to be in pain once the tylenol kicked in and the compresses brought the swelling and redness down…kept up the compresses the rest of the evening, on and off and that seemed to do the trick…she is bruised where she got the shot and it is still tight but i massage the sore area when she lets me and it hasn’t caused her anymore pain or become swollen again…phew…
