Joellen's garden pics
May flew by and now I can't believe it's June! There were so many things happening at once in my life. First my daughter finished her month of once a week treatment of retuxin Iv.It's a cancer drug that treats other things besides cancer. It makes her ill after treatments and of course her son got sick at the same time she was going thru it.
It compromises your immune system so she was home with us for a couple days so her pre schooler wouldn't give her what bug he had. I will never feel relaxed with her illnesses it's always scary.
Thank goodness for Megan's hubby.
Then my mother in law was in the hospital she is 99 and we were getting updates from Long beach. She is doing well now now.
There was a routine doctor checkup and lately my eyes have been acting up. I can't see well when I am driving. So it looks like now I have to have cataract surgery. During the month I have been gardening planting a raised beds training chickens.
I went to a vintage flea market near Julian a preschool birthday party for little Jack.It was a hoot! I am behind as usual but believe me I am busy. Saturday little Jack is graduating from preschool.Next week I am getting new floors in my old house I am so excited.I have to take apart the front room with all my small primitives. It was a busy May.June is just as busy.
You know how if your a knitter ladies will say never knit a sweater for a boyfriend because if you do it's not going to end well. Well I felt that way when I was hooking my cat rug that is taking so long. I even told a gal in class I wasn't putting Morris name on it because I didn't want something to happen to Morris. So I named it Sweet Noel.I couldn't even rug hook my orange cat rug.My heart was just in a sad waiting mode.Stress can get to you. That month was hard up and down of emotions.I was worn.
Call me silly and superstitious but that's why I changed the lettering.
Well I knew Morris never was one to miss a meal so I had in my sad mind buried him. I was prepared to donate his kitty food to Friends of Cats. We had dumped out his litter box and I had even told my cousin he was probably gone. One night with tears in my eyes I had made a cat eulogy post for him When like the cat in the Disney movie Tomisina he came home..
Morris turned up on the third day!!
So hubby was off to work early on the third day and next thing I know he comes tearing in the house with Morris in his arms.Jack was in tears.My hubby didn't cry when I had major surgery he didn't get teary eyed when I gave birth but Morris coming back he was a basket case.
Have you ever had your cat insulted at the vets lol ?
Well first Morris had been a stray so we had no idea how old he was so we said eight years old.The vet started her list of what our Morris looked like first for eight he was fat ,weird shaped, small head,skinny legs, tarter in his teeth, sneezing, fever ,no muscle ,fur lacked luster ,his claws were torn up as if he had been running away from something.Was she looking at our cat?
Jack explained in a confused voice to me I like his coat! (he pets that crazy cat all evening sitting on his lap)
After Morris had his blood work we were sent home with Morris getting an antibiotic shot and a follow up visit if he didn't improve.
Now I knew Morris couldn't look that terrible so we called up our daughter to ask her the question when did we get Morris ? We feel like he has been with us forever. Come to find out when we found Morris in our backyard our daughter was in college. So Morris is 15 to 17 years old.
So when the puzzled Vet called with his lab work that was excellent. I promptly informed her of his age and she said he looks good for his age!
It's a virus so his body has to fight it off but he does seem to be slowly doing better this week.I guess age matters how you are perceived lol!!Your either a mess or you look incredible for your age.
