Okay. I think this is going to be a difficult post to write. To recap for our new followers (Welcome! Thanks for joining us!); about a year and a half ago, my husband ended up in the emergency room for what turned out to be pulmonary edema. He spent the night in the hospital, was … Continue reading Broken. Like our system
I headed out to water things this evening, but got distracted. Junk Pile and two of her babies were out! I ended up lying right on the ground, in hopes that would make them less intimidated by the tall(ish) human. Creamsicle took full advantage of the situation. What a silly boy! Tabby didn't come any … Continue reading Get a little bit closer, and a follow up
So... My husband and I are back from his appointment at the pain clinic in the city. In a nutshell? Nothing happened, and nothing will happen. At least not there. To backtrack a bit. When we first moved here, one of the first things we had to do was find a new doctor for my … Continue reading How it went
While picking cucalmelons this morning, I found a little friend! We've been seeing LOTS of frogs about this size, every time we to go through the garden beds. Usually, they hop off too quickly for me to get photos, but this one didn't move! He was even okay with the cucamelon leaves being pulled aside. … Continue reading A little friend, and change of (medical) plans

Today, the girls held down the fort while I headed out early to take my mother for a doctor's appointment - her first since things were just starting to shut down. Most appointments were being cancelled - thankfully, not hers - and they were only doing phone appointments. The clinic is still doing "walk ins" … Continue reading A hint of what this August looks to be like
And it only took 2 years and 5 months. My husband got a letter from the pain clinic in the city today. He has an appointment for next month! Which will make it almost exactly 2 1/2 years since he was first put on the waiting list. It took 2 years and a new doctor … Continue reading Good news!
I am in so much pain right now. Chances are, I'll hardly be able to walk tomorrow. But it was worth it! Let's back up a bit. This morning, I got a call from the pharmacy, letting me know my husband's painkillers were ready to pick up. Oh, what wonderful news to start the day! … Continue reading I’ll be feeling this tomorrow!
What a runaround today has been. But first, I will share something to make you smile! Upside down, furry friends. Two Face and Dave were busily playing, with Two Face grabbing, licking and biting Dave's head and him... letting her. 😀 At about 1am. I just had to turn on a light and get pictures. … Continue reading Good grief
