A cat returned

Mom's rose

My little tortie kitteh, who had been missing for a month, was returned last night by a good samaratin. He lives just down the street and took her to a vet who scanned her microchip. I had resigned myself to her loss since it had been just about a month since she disappeared. We're still not sure how she got outside (we never let the cats out). I'm just so very, very happy to have her back. Poor thing, she left us a football with feet and returned a bony little cat. And she spent the night on my pillow, which probably isn't good for my flea count, but was comforting nonetheless.

Days 5 - 7

Mom's rose

Disavowal continues, though not with a ton of gusto. Following it with the reminder that life doesn't get "better" because the present moment is all we ever have.

The pain from that most recent dose of lortab was self inflicted and non consensual.

If I can actually manage to lay down and breath, I will be happy tonight. I am seriously failing staying awake until my next dose of lortab. Having the nod off micro-dream problem. Not quite to full hallucinating.

Homemade beef broth was my salvation today. I don't think I could have survived the day on continued variations of sugar water. Tomorrow, chicken noodle soup and mashed potatoes.

Tonsillectomy

Mom's rose

So I got my tonsils and adenoids out yesterday. Apparently, they were rather icky with puss and stones, so my fears of unnecessary surgery were relieved.

Now however, every so often, I can't exhale through my nose while lying down, due to a combination of swelling and sinus congestion. This makes it hard to sleep.

And I'm on clear liquids for the next two days, so I don't even get to have ice cream yet :(

However, two year old son snuggles are sweet.

Can't stop the signal

absolution
Cause rockbirthedme said it better "This is for all of us who have had to deal with the shame, embarrassment, inconvenience, discrimination, and inconsideration because people do not understand that just because we walk and talk like everybody else does not mean that we cope like everybody else.

A head for books
My daughters and I thought we'd share the idea of Grumpusses with you. Here is they first draft of our Guide to Grumpusses. The story is written from LB's point of view.
