Gosh, where do I start? Let me look back to see what I wrote about last. Okay, so I talked about the internet situation, which was finally resolved and so far everything is going well. We are happy about that. I also talked about Pepper, the porch/deck kitty. Well, she is still here, hanging around as usual. I reached out to the same people that I contacted the first time, and they checked and will have an opening before winter. They asked me to take care of her until then. I really hope they aren’t messing with me. I am really counting on them, or I would have gone to someone else. I guess we will see. I recently gave her a dewormer, because I noticed tapeworms, and didn’t want any around, because of the other ferals. Now sure it’s possible they have it as well, especially if they hunt and eat animals they catch. But I try to make it the least possible chance for them to get any, and for us to bring something into the house that can harm our house only kitties.
From what I see, I think it took care of the problem. It was kind of hard to get her to eat the food with the meds in it. But I think it worked, Yay! No more tapeworms. Now, I have the ringworm problem I have to deal with as well. It is hard to do this, because she is fussy, and doesn’t stay still. I don’t want her biting me again (lol yes again), or scratching me. I have medicine for that but it’s a topical I have to put on her back. I haven’t done it yet, but I need to soon. I say soon because I have had other things to worry about which include my husband and my cats. She just finished eating in this picture.
Daisy, my Siamese, had a vet visit today. She has had diarrhea for like a week now, and she has been throwing up as well. So I really started to worry. She has had accidents all over the house, on the carpet, and in the basement (no carpet, easier to clean). In our rooms. I have a lot of cleaning to do. However, since we got back home. I wanted to give Daisy a chance to sleep off the meds I gave her before taking her to the vet. I am so glad they were able to get her in so quickly. God thank you so much for that. Lily’s vet visit isn’t until the end of September. These photos were taken during Daisy’s vet visit.
Then my husband, oh my poor sweet husband. He came down with something too. So far from what we have been told by the doctor, cervicogenic headaches. He is taking medication for it. He has recently gone in for a CT Scan, which showed everything is fine. Before he got his meds, his headache was horrible, it hurt so much. I would hear him groaning in pain. It was breaking my heart. I could not do anything to help him. We ended up going to the ER. What they gave him was temporary, so we had to look for more help, which is when he finally got in to see a doctor. It was a virtual appointment, but it was still helpful, as they prescribed him the meds that he is currently taking. Then he had another appointment to have X-rays done, so that was on Friday, and we are waiting to hear back from the doctor. My view as we waited at the ER. My husband was on a bed, but I didn’t want to post a picture of him.
I’m telling you, sitting around waiting to hear something is torture. Recently, he has felt that the left side of his face is not functioning, like he can’t smile, or close his eye all the way, his eye waters, probably from his eye not blinking. It was like a week ago, and now he can’t do anything with that side of this face. Something we want to tell the doctor if she would get back to us. When we last talked to the doctor, he showed her that he could partially move it, but now he can’t at all. She had already dismissed the thought of having a stroke. She feels it could be a nerve thing going on, in the back lower part of his neck which involves the C1-C3 Vertebrae. He has therapy set up already starting in September. We pray he will not need surgery, God willing, the therapy will help his condition. Right now, we don’t know much, because we don’t know what the X-rays show. I’m very worried about him. I can tell this has depressed him. It has made me very sad. I cry sometimes. I just pray the doctor gets back to us today. It is already going to be 3 p.m., and we have heard zero. Now I am thinking we may not hear anything until tomorrow. He also needs a refill on one of the meds, he only has enough for tonight and tomorrow morning. This is crazy how they keep people waiting. Time is so important. Things have to happen now for goodness’ sake.
So all that is happening and has me and him just worried, and anxious. As far as my weight progress. I am continuing with my diet. Last week I lost 5.3 lbs, this week I gained 2 lbs. I weighed in on Sunday, I was supposed to weigh in on Saturdays. Oops. I don’t like yo-yoing. What is done, is done. I have to do better this week. I will have to do a catch-up post on my weight progress. The last one I did was July 8th, so yeah it is time. My husband, on the other hand, has lost a lot, he doesn’t need to lose anymore. He did not weigh in the last two weeks, but he weighs 148.5, he just can’t lose anymore. He weighed in on Aug 5th and was at 159.3, so yeah he lost almost 10 lbs because he has been feeling ill. Poor baby. I’m all kinds of worried now. I think that is it for now. Please say a prayer for him, and my cat, Daisy. Lily seems fine, I am hoping she doesn’t get ill too Okay, I will close here. Until next time. Don’t forget!
