It’s been quite a week! Or has it been 2 or 3 weeks? Anyway, Cassey is doing better, I won’t say well yet coz she still has a way to go for a full recovery. Her stitches are coming out tomorrow, and the little (not so little in my opinion) hole where one of the drainage tubes were, looks like it might be closing. But, and here’s where the dreaded but comes in, the liquid is now pooling in her abdomen. So she’s kinda puffy and watery, if that makes any sense at all. Still, I remind myself daily that she is alive, she could have just as easily not survived. I still can’t believe this happened. My poor little kitty.
It’s been very hectic, because she is NOT allowed to jump. Yeah right, a cat that wants to jump WILL jump, lemme just tell you that! So it’s been fun around here, between looking after the cat, kids and house, and garden, I feel completely drained. And then my boys got me onto Face.book’s Farm.ville and Cafe.world. As if I’m not busy enough! So yesterday was spend running between all of the above and my crops and cooking dishes! But I must admit, I love it!! Totally hookable games those! The boys help out alot though, they’re always on FB so they harvest and plant at will. It has been very good to get my mind off all that’s going on, so I won’t be quitting just yet.
My Dad is still in end stage renal failure, his kidneys have calcified so the Dr.s have no hope for him. But he’s motoring on and taking his supplements and staying off salt etc. My Mom’s arm is still in a sling, so she’s having a fun time (not) at the moment. Christmas is nearing and I have not yet sorted out the menu, which, as you know is like weird for me, coz I usually have Christmas all sorted in July already, but I’ll let myself off the hook just this once, coz you know the crappy year and all.
Anywhoo, we have started buying Christmas goodies, I love silver sparkley thingies! But Woolies just doesn’t have that lekka pezzaz they used to have in years gone by, or is it just me? Maybe it’s just me, we’ll see closer to Christmas. Hopefully by Christmas, my kitty is all better, my Dad is still alive and my Mom’s arm is not in the sling anymore.
