Obesity is now officially a disease
I have to go and update the section of my book where I talk about how this hasn't yet happened but seemed to be the next (illogical) step. What are your thoughts about this classification by the American Medical Association?
On a personal note I have had a lot on my plate and continue to work on my book when able. Also, I rescued a partial albino elderly guinea pig left for dead four months ago. He was in an apartment, abandoned and alone in a filthy tank with no food or water. The person who found him put him on craigslist and I just happened to see the listing and brought him home. He had a broken tooth, bugs and a few other issues.
I've had guinea pigs all of my life--growing up in NYC I wasn't allowed to have dogs in my apartment and I became fond of them--and he is one of the most affectionate pigs I've ever owned. I named him Casper. Now my little guy has a bladder stone and will be having surgery on Friday so as you can imagine I am concerned about him.
