Yesterday I met with one of my "Medical Team". I only call them that because there seem to be so many. This one deals with my ears, nose and throat. Nothing very helpful came out of it. Does it ever? The reason my voice is sounding strange is because I have a polyp, most likely … Continue reading Rude awakenings
Yesterday, Grant took me for a drive, in the hope of seeing something that would lift me out of the funk. See Blackie there? I feel like that, only a lot less relaxed. From what I can gather I have PAWS. Well yes, 11 sets of them, but that's not what I mean. Post Acute … Continue reading Don’t do OXY

Sometimes I ask myself why I live with so many cats. Why do I put myself through all the extra work, and accept the irritation they sometimes cause? Like stepping all over my keyboard! Mostly, I wonder, how many more times can I go through having one of them put to sleep? Colin is dying … Continue reading Small victories
These past few days I feel as if I am knocking my head against a wall. Like everything I do takes me off on a tangent of confusion and frustration. Technology, largely.
