Coffee And An Orange Cat

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
As I sit here on the day after,
 with my coffee and orange cat in hand,
I think what a day it was.
Both for me and for our nation.
This time when I heard who won, I cried.
Tears of relief.
 I was, for a few moments, thinking that I was in the minority.
That the women out there had forgotten what it was like to be.
 I am thrilled to know that we stood up for ourselves.
That we voted and for me, the right person won.
After I vote, I figure the one with the most votes wins.
I did my part.
 Only this time, I felt that it was so important for women
and for many other reasons,
to vote from your heart and not from your pocket.
 That's all I'll say about that.

For me, it was a day spent visiting my heart Doctor
and then off to the ER for a few hours of fun times.
I know, I need to find something else to do with my time.
Everyone was very nice.
The results are that my heart is still beating too fast or too low.
 No one knows why I reacted to my medications.
They aren't even sure it was due to it.
They found that I have a bladder infection
due to another blocked kidney stone.
Again, in my left kidney.
The one I had operated on last June.
I almost, and I say that with a laugh,
 had to have emergency surgery.
I was sent home with a
'at least it wasn't sepsis .. again'
and told to come back if anything changes at all.
Again, fun times over here in the woods.
 I'll call my kidney Doctor today.
 She'll probably want to operate as soon as possible.
My heart Doctor wants me to call him
as soon as I know what's going on.
 Me, I'm doing OK.
Feeling sore but OK.
Up early due to pain but heck,
 I'm used to it .. right.
I was thinking yesterday,
 just how much one person is supposed to deal with.
Is this all a test ?
Is anyone listening to me out there in the Universe ?
I think I've past.
I get the idea.
Can I be done with all this pain now ?
Just saying ...
So, like I said, yesterday was quite a day.

Warm hugs...softly. Purrs and pawhugs and caring.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Oh, yeah, "fun" times. There's not much I can write that will help. The boys continue to send purrs and I continue to send Light.

No, I don't think there's any Being listening to us, frankly. At least not as the limited human mind can perceive it or conceive it.

Lori at Jarvis House said...

Dear JC, sorry that you had a "fun" day with doctors. We have been having "fun days" with Hurricane Sandy. I am one of the lucky people who didn't get flooded. There wasn't too much rain, so I was ok. People on the coasts were flooded out by extreme tidal surges. Electricity is still out for thousands of people who live on the Island because we have overhead wires and huge trees that fell in the 90+ mph wind gusts. I have a really old house and a really old steam boiler with a pilot light, not an electric starter, that means heat. Sometimes what is old can turn out to be better. I was able to light my gas range with matches, then later when my electricity came back, i was able to bake cookies for people who needed some comfort goodies. Well we will all have to rethink our priorities and make plans to become a lot more self sufficient. Right now we are experiencing gasoline shortages with mile long car lines and state troopers, keeping things calm. Everyone is really tired and cranky. They just want to get back to work and school. Cheers from the Jarvis House. Hope we learn a lot from this experience.

We hope that your health troubles pass quickly.

Oskar & Pam

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
