I'm going to make an effort to be more connected to all of you this year...Connor's immune function has really been good the last several months (thank you PICC line!!) so I feel better having him out and about more. We're ready for more play dates! Any of you want to learn ASL? He's non-verbal, but very good at signing
Now, to completely counter what I just said...Unfortunately we're starting the new year sick, Connor has a fever, swollen lymph nodes everywhere (including groin and arm pits, not just his neck!), and --here's a new one-- an umbilical infection!! Weird, huh? I took him in, but the dr wasn't worried, said he doesn't think the infection and fever are connected, thinks he just has a bug of some sort along with the local infection (there's no streaking from his belly button, it's just red and yucky looking) But a few days of rest along with topical ointment, and we'll be ready to play! (at least, that's the hope!)
Our poor kitty is injured right now...came in from outside two days ago not walking on his back paw. It's swollen and he definitely does not like me touching it. No blood, not cuts, all his other joints are fine, so I think he probably going it squished in the wood pile chasing furry critters. It'll be a few weeks before he's able to go outside again I think!
Today is my anniversary...6 years!
