Friday Feelings (Not an inauguration post!)

Love this pic.  It shows Precious looking scornfully down on Princeton.
It purrfectly represents their relationship.

Now on to other things.

After a discussion on our Cats With Blogs facebook page, I have decided to
have human updates, too.
I realized that I am very interested in not only our furriend's furbabies, but their humans, too.
Many of you agreed with me.
So here goes:

As many of you know I had surgery last year.  We won't go in to it.
Let's just say it was on my posterior.
The surgery took literally 45 minutes.
The healing time was around 45 weeks.
It was very humbling. (and painful)
During that time, my beloved Stepdaddy fell and broke a hip and needed a complete replacement.
There were many complications that necessitated a 3 week hospital stay.
(Busted incision, pneumonia)
He was released with barely any mobility and us as his primary caregivers.
The day after his release, Mom woke with frozen shoulder - she is already handicapped from previous accident.

Stepdaddy then got C Diff. (google it - it's terrible)
By this time it was the holidays.
The C Diff was awful and the cure is worse.
We nearly lost him.
Slowly getting him back on his walker and on his feet.

Cue the spouse.
He is sick, y'all.
Real sick.
He's had enlarged lymph nodes for 12 weeks.
Blood tests revealed non active tick fever and MRSA,
but something else they can't pin down.
We see an oncologist next Wednesday.

We just can't catch a break and truthfully, many times I fall asleep when I sit down.
We did get me a new Iphone so that I could keep up on facebook more often.
I enjoy keeping up and eventually I want to post on my blog more often.

Just wanted ya'll to know what was going on here in our little corner of Oklahoma.

Thank ya'll for caring, purring, purraying, and letting me rattle on.
Gotta go, my services are needed.

  19. Tonya, I know like us you are happy to have 2016 behind you. I have had C. diff and know how awful it is, especially for older folks, who can get dehydrated very quickly. You are always in my prayers, and I will add your hubby. Will pray extra hard that oncologist doesn't find any cancer. Please take care. I appreciate that you have continued to join Sunday Selfies through all of this. Sending love and hugs, Janet
