How am I Doing?

You might ask.  I am doing pretty fine today, thank you.

I have a new doctor(s) and am beginning to get some help.  My personal physiscian, Mel, was right on point on our first visit.  He upped my trazadone so I sleep better, got me into a pain management group that starts later this month, and got me into a psychiatrist to oversee my psychotrophic drugs.  I still need to make an appointment for the MSW to talk about those things that I need help changing.

I have many more decent days than horribly bad days.  Still am agoraphobic, to the point I have to ask Scott to accompany me to the grocery store most of the time.  The fibro pain is constant now, with excrutiating pain about every six to eight weeks lasting for about two weeks. 

Yet all in all, things are looking up right now.

New Year

My resolutions are not going to be achieved anyway, so no resolutions!  I am resolute in that!

Our beloved Max Excellent Katt died back in September.  We were so grieved.  He had a heart attact and then threw a thomboisis (blood clot) that paralysised his hind end.  It happened so fast.  He is soaring.

It took about three months and serendipity for us to find our little Miri.  The Humane Sociiety of the Willamette Valley had a Black Friday sale on black cats.  How adorable!  All mostly black cats were free!  The $50 - $70 fee was waived.

We walked in looking for an older female and left with a 3 month old spayed kitten with giardia.  Which we didn't know about until we were called two weeks later.  Luckily I found a free visit coupon for a vet visit and  took a very sick Wolf in for meds.  All is well now.  One happy family.

I am Back

Yes.  I am finally back to blogging.

Moving was quite a chore and more disruptive than I thought it would be.  Add to that, I have been hit HARD by IBS and only now getting back to a more normal, normally regular. 

I still haven't got everything unpacked yet.  Hey, it's only been 2.5 months.  I have to get the guest room finished by mid-December because Selene and Lennon will be here for about 2.5 weeks over Christmas and New Years.  (She'll also be staying with her aunt and uncle and granddads as well.)

The cats have settled in.  Max escaped one day.  He made it around the south wing (bedrooms) and froze when he got to the entry window.  I had to rescue him.  He was petrified.  Wolf likes to sneak out the front door and smell the mailbox area, then back into the house for a snuggle.  And, Wolf has been learning the 'stay' command when I open the door.  If you can believe a cat will stay on command.

As for Scott having a shorter commute.  Nope.  He still pulls in at about 7pm.  He finds traffic is a lot slower during his commute times.  We are coming to terms with our shopping.  All the grocery stores are just down the road.  Furthest is Safeway at less than 3 miles.  So our shopping is all on one street!  It's just that the stores are at least 50% bigger than the ones we used to shop at.  And that takes more time. 

It's nice to be back.  I'll write more later!
