The cat might make it...
: Thank you for your support.
As I said, he is my favorite. This big guy is now 13 and has already used too many of his 9 lives when he was hit by a truck when he was 2 or 3. He has no back knee left, his hip is all messed up; after crawling for a few weeks, he re-learned to walk and he has been happily living like that since. But he is a trooper and has been amazing everybody ever since for his strength and calm. He is our gentle giant. After all he has been through he just deserved to be pampered for his last few years. Not going through another major injury.
When I talked to the vet this morning, he said his temperature has finally climbed back to normal during the night and he has done a couple steps (backwards, but hey, it is better than not moving). However, the vet would still have expected him to get better faster, even at his age. Running more blood tests today to find indications of potential internal injuries that have not been spotted yet.
The dog owner is supposed to take the bill (her dog escaped and came into our fenced yard to attack the cat). But I'll believe it when I have her cheque in hand.
DTD a few times now
, first time was awkward. Then it just got awesome, when my cycle started again, except for once last week where I could all of a sudden feel the tissues where I tore. It was just pulling. Took a break and now that DH knows the exact spot to be gentle, it was fine when we tried again.
Week-end was not good for me, in addition to the cat story and a couple issues to solve with DH, my Mom had a car accident. She is fine, but it worries one of my brothers and I a lot. It is the second time in two years that she has a major crash. And in this one she was obviously at fault. And could have killed the motorcyclist she cut while pulling a left turn on a busy highway. How long until we get her off the road? How is one supposed to do that to her mother? You need a car to go anywhere from her house.
One thing is for sure, my brother and I will seriously disagree and speak up if she tries to buy another big car. She might feel safe in it, but she doesn't see anything! It is a really difficult family dynamic, especially since I am at the other end of the country.
