Yep, I'm back. Once again I was minding my own business, just laying on the floor in my favorite position..on my back, and then I got thirsty. I got up for a drink and walked around the kitchen table and saw daddy there with his shoes on. I knew with one look that I was going for a ride AGAIN. I didn't fight Daddy.. He just picked me up and carried me into the guest room where they keep my carrier and in I went. I meowed loudly in protest all the way to Dr. Gail's as per usual. I can get very loud too. But then I get real quiet in the waiting room of Dr. Gail's office.
Found out my pal Nick wasn't there today. I hate it when they give him a Friday off once in a while. Bet he has to work tomorrow. Anyway, while I was waiting for Stephanie to take me into a little room, a lady came in with a very tiny kitten. She had rescued her in the middle of a road someplace, She was 2 months old. The I saw another kitty with a broken leg. It was in a cast. His Daddy said he keeps pulling at the tape on the end of the cast. Then I was taken into "the room" where Stephanie held me and Dr. Gail took my blood. It was 49 like the last time. Too low...so we lowered my insulin from 8.5 to 8 units twice a day. Daddy will have to take me back on July 9th alone 'cause Mommy will still be in Pa. She's going away on Tuesday, June 29. It'll be just us 2 guys for 10 days. It's the day before she comes home after being up there with all the other cats in her family. She'll get to know Mr. Jinx or Jinxy...he answers to either name. She has his picture in her photo thingy here on Spark.
Well, that's all I have to report. I know I'm better off at the moment than that poor kitty with the broken leg...broken in 2 places too. OUCH. I'll say a prayer for that little kitty too.
Ta Ta for now...Till we meet again...

Hi all, Some of you may have read that I was having more pain in my side and down my glute and it was difficult to turn over in bed or even to get our of bed for that matter. It also hurt to walk sometimes. I went to my PC doctor and he had me get an x-ray and I got the results today. I have more osteo-arthritis and calcium pockets in some joints. So he increased my Darcocete to 4 times a day rather than 3 times, and put me on 20 mg. of Prednisone for the inflammation. I am to stay on that for 2 weeks. But I can keep the pain med to 3 or 4 times a day after the 2 weeks as needed. It feels better today so something is working.
I was still able to go and work out at Curves but I was careful which machines I used today. I also know it's important to keep moving, and so I shall!

A friend sent me this today and it brought back many good memories. Hope it will for some of you too.----Elayne
A little house with three bedrooms, one bathroom and one car on the street.
A lawn mower that you had to push to make the grass look neat.
In the kitchen on the wall we only had one phone,
And no need for recording things, someone was always home.
We only had a living room where we would congregate,
Unless it was at mealtime in the kitchen where we ate.
We had no need for family rooms or extra rooms to dine,
When meeting as a family those two rooms would work out fine.
We only had one TV set, and channels maybe two,
But always there was one of them with something worth the view.
For snacks we had potato chips that tasted like a chip,
And if you wanted flavor there was Lipton's onion dip.
Store-bought snacks were rare because my mother liked to cook,
And nothing can compare to snacks in Betty Crocker's book.
Weekends were for family trips or staying home to play,
We all did things together and time just slipped away.
When we did our weekend trips depending on the weather,
No one stayed at home because we liked to be together.
Sometimes we would separate to do things on our own,
But we knew where the others were without our own cell phone.
Then there were the movies with your favorite movie star,
And nothing can compare to watching movies in your car.
Then there were the picnics at the peak of summer season,
Pack a lunch and find some trees and never need a reason.
Get a baseball game together with all the friends you know,
Have real action playing ball -- and no post-game video.
Remember when the doctor used to be the family friend,
And didn't need insurance or a lawyer to defend?
The way that he took care of you or what he had to do,
Because he took an oath and strived to do the best for you.
Remember going to the store with your favorite honey,
And when you went to pay the clerk you used your own earned money?
Nothing that you had to swipe or punch in some amount,
Remember when the cashier person had to really count?
The milkman used to go from door to door,
And it was just a few cents more than going to the store.
There was a time when mailed letters came right to your door,
Without a lot of junk mail ads sent out by every store.
The mailman knew each house by name and knew where it was sent;
There were not loads of mail addressed to "present occupant."
There was a time when just one glance was all that it would take,
And you would know the kind of car, the model and the make.
They didn't look like turtles trying to squeeze out every mile;
They were streamlined with white walls, fins, and had some style.
In our time the music that you played when you would jive,
Was from a vinyl, big-holed record called a forty-five.
The record player had a post to keep them all in line,
And then the records would drop down and play one at a time.
Oh sure, we had our problems then, just like we do today,
And always we were striving, trying for a better way.
Oh, the simple life we lived still seems like so much fun,
How can you explain a game, just kick the can and run?
And why would boys put baseball cards between bicycle spokes,
And for a nickel red machines had little bottled Cokes?
