stuff

Thursday, January 09, 2014

Just went back to my gp for the THIRD time for my cold/ asthma. Finished my antibiotics yesterday still felt like crap got a prescription for 3 prednisone - one day rook one already not sure if its really working, The pharmacist said I had to go back to the doctor if it doesn't work. All I know is my chest is still burning and tight. I guess thats the punishment for staying at work and NOT going to the doctor when I should have and then suffering through my vacation. I guess doing woodwork while sick didn't really help either. I wanted to finish a gift Christmas Eve.

    I think he was worried I had a secondary infection as my lungs were so tight. He isn't huge on lab tests except for my physical (actually I wish he would have put me on the nebulizer but that hasn't happened in years- he just want me to double up on my Symbicort- which I think didn't work as great as my pulmicort and bricanyl).

Thanks

    Did they do a sensitivity and culture on you? Antibiotics don't work unless it is bacterial and most infections are viral. If it is bacterial the C&S will tell them what antibiotics actually work. I hope you feel better soon.

Christmas 2013

Wednesday, December 25, 2013

Not too much to add. I still have mixed feelings about this time of year. It generally comes across for me as a disappointment. I am somewhat relieved that its over. Happy still shows up generally speaking, I think he must have hurt himself somehow as he walks with a limp. I truly wish I could find a way to get him fixed up and bring him into the house. Its a real heartbreaker for me why I am not totally sure, Perhaps its because I doubt he has ever experienced much in the way of human kindness. I made another catbed albeit a smaller version as a gift this year. I took some time off of work as I am becoming a basket case and I really need OUT. Tomorrow is going to be crazy with all the Boxing Day sales (its a stat holiday in most Commonwealth countries I think). I can't wait to get a different job.trouble is its tough to move as there is a freeze in most departments of my employer. Merry Christmas and a BETTER 2014 for ALL of us. WE DESERVE IT.

    I am always glad when the holidays are over too. They don't have the thrill they did when I was a kid and had some relatives. I look forward to a new year and lots of good things to come. I hope you can get a new job and that both of us have a good year coming up. The same for Happy. I wish Happy would allow you to help him too.

good news

He did show up after I wrote yesterday (thanks for the support). He was very cold and today he was still cold . Cheryl set up a heater by the cat shelter and I guess he was thirsty as he seemed more interested in drinking than in the food.

    So glad "your" kitty returned. Isn't it a great feeling when those fur-balls come to feel safe with us? If you can rig up a light fixture, those old fashioned incandescent bulbs give off a fair amount of heat. (We use one in the winter to keep our outside water pump from freezing.) emoticon

    Poor kitty. Can you put a light in his shelter. We dad used to put lights in the dog houses and they would put off heat when it was cold. It probably is hard to find unfrozen water outside when it's below freezing.

Sad Because of Happy

Tuesday, December 03, 2013

There was a cat that we were feeding as he was homeless and starving , My daughter named him Happy as he had a white band across his chest that looked like a smile and white paws (the rest of him was black). I built a shelter for him but I do not think he ever used it.He used to show up after 5 like clockwork. No sign of him. We had a very bad snowstorm so I don't know if he succumbed to the cold or if he got hit by a car or what befell him.

    I'm so sorry but don't give up hope. I also had a cat that I trapped, neutered and vaccinated and then disappeared for almost a year! Then, like a miracle, he came back!! I don't know where he went but he's here and I still feed him!! I hope he comes back and at some point, if you can trap him, get him shots and neutered. It will prolong his life and make him healthier. There are organizations that will help with that too! Good luck. I hope he comes back!!!

    Oh no!! I hate to hear it. Maybe someone let him inside somewhere. I hope he is okay.

    Oh, hopefully Happy shows up. Maybe he is hiding out somewhere until the snow passes. Fingers crossed he return!!
