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.
