So, long story short: My sister was fostering three female guinea pigs from her school's animal lab over winter break, only it turned out that one of them was male and that this mistake had happened over a month ago and the two females were in fact quite pregnant. Now, if a guinea pig doesn't give birth by the time she's 2 years old, her hipbones fuse, making it extremely difficult for her to successfully give birth, so the plan was to bring them back to the school for an abort spay; but one of them unexpectedly went into labor a week or so earlier than we expected, and despite the odds, gave birth to two healthy babies!

Meanwhile, I had just learned how to shoot my photos in RAW, so the guinea pigs made perfect...uh...guinea pigs for practicing my photography.

So yeah, those were the piggies. They've since gone back to the school lab. The babies will probably need a home, so they might come back to us for good after this semester is over. (The other pregnant pig gave birth and survived, but her pups were stillborn.)

[livejournal.com profile] outdatedclocks has pointed out that my lower-back/hip problems, and my leg problems, are probably all related to the issues I have with my feet (lack of arches?). I've been making do with CVS-brand arch support pads, but they're not really enough, and I'd like to be able to do some cardio and upper-body stuff again, which I can't really now since my back hurts alllll the time. I'd been putting off talking to my doctor about it because of my terrible experiences with my last one...even though this one's shown no indication she's suddenly going to go all 'you're lying, you must be sneaking nachos in the middle of the night, fatty' on me. In fact, she'll probably be happy to help me out, since she wants me exercising before I go on T since I have a genetic disposition towards hypertension (dad's been hospitalized for it).

BTW, for those curious about the whole doctor saga, since I've posted it around a few places but not actually here at my main journal I think (since I just realized last night [livejournal.com profile] ocelotofdoom had never read the whole thing)...I submitted the whole thing to First, Do No Harm (excellent blog BTW) so you can read it here (it's so long I don't see a need to copy+paste it here P:)

Speaking of [livejournal.com profile] ocelotofdoom, we might be hanging out this weekend :D or rather, probably are. I am still working out the logistics, I think I'll stay on campus this weekend and take the train into the city. It would mean missing a therapy appointment, but I've skipped weeks in the past (or rather, therapist has cancelled on me) so I know it won't do any damage emotionally or to my comfort level with him.

Okay I really should go to class 6 u 9;;
