Friday Updates or So Glad This Wild Week Is Over

Riley and I survived this wild week.
He is now home.
Playing in a box.
He spent two days in the animal ER.
(Don't even ask me how much that cost ..
priceless .. think that commercial)
The tests showed that he has no obstructions or tumors.
Blood work was so so.
Conclusion is that he probably has pancretitis.
He is eating .. a tiny bit.
His furs look a bit better.
Not out of the woods yet but so much better than he was.
I'll take it .. and hope he improves.
I had a nice talk with my heart surgeons scheduler.
He'd put a note that he wanted me in right away.
So, July 16th is my surgery.
My visit with him last Tuesday
was as nice as it could have been.
Nice guy. Knows what he's doing.
If every thing goes well, I'll go home the next day.
If not, I'll stay and have a pace maker put in.
I'm on a new med.
That makes three so far for my heart.
I went to a party last weekend.
Graduation celebration.
The Grandmother was there.
In her wheelchair due to a stroke.
I won't go into any other details except
to say that what I have can cause one.
I am a big girl now.
Thus, I made my appointment.
So, this wild week can end.
I want to pretend like I so like to do.
Baby Cat Riley (I know he's eight but he's still my baby)
will be good as new.
My surgery will work.
I will be almost as good as new.
As new as an almost 57 year old can be.
I'm at the beach place with Riley and the girls.
(Maddy Jean and Jodie Isabella)
Meredith Ann didn't want to come this time.
Meaning that she was behind the cabinet
and wanted to relax at home.
She is really too cute.
Hope you all have a fun, nice, relaxing weekend.
I plan on it.
Oh, and remember to dance
even if it's in your chair
or the kitchen.
Turn the music on and remember
when you were 16 or 25.
Whatever .. just do it.
Just saying ...

I am glad Riley is home and doing some better. I just know that heart dude will do you up right. I hope you all have a peaceful and quiet weekend!

We're glad Riley is home too. Purrs and paws crossed for his continued improvement.

And purrs and paws crossed for you too.

It's good advice, though, to dance, even if we're not mobile enough to be up and on our feet. Some foot-tapping, finger-drumming, body swaying...Yes, dance, because it's either that (and laugh) or cry endlessly. Life is crazy.

Blessings and Peace.

So pleased to read that Riley is home - he's so sweet, and hoping that he's soon fully recovered.
I too am sure your heart surgeon will sort out your problem, I'm glad you've got the date confirmed.
(By the way I'll be 57 in another couple of months too.)
I hope you too will have a lovely weekend in your woods with the purr and fur gang :o)

It's good that Riley gets to go on a vacation to the beach house with you - even if he can't go out on the porch. Likely, it's why Meredith Ann decided to stay home. lol

It's good that you like your surgeon, but I find it odd that when told "right away" the soonest the scheduler could come up with is a month away. Stay relaxed and comfortable and for goodness' sake, don't you dare have as stroke!

I love it here. Katie and I both do.

Love to Meredith Ann and Reily and you.

Thank you so much for your note about Simba. I really appreciate it.

I hope Riley continues to do better (yes, vet costs are priceless!). I hope all goes well with your surgery.

Back to send a hug to all of you.

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.
