shan chrsitmas 2016 crpShan had been begging for a car ride for several days & I finally had some free time so I put her in her car seat & we ran a couple of errands, then stopped by the pet store for more cat food. Turned out they were taking Santa pictures- so Shan took her turn! As you can see, she was more interested in looking at the lights (though she did groom his hair a bit). Merry Christmas!

It has been rough weather lately- hot, humid, very heavy rain (1.5 inch in 1/2 hour rain!) which has been annoying 'cause I'm trying to get things done outside before I start radiation next week. With so much rain the grass needs mowing every week! It was a bit exciting in one storm- I looked out to check water levels to see if I needed to sandbag & lightning struck the tree right in front of me! bout jumped outta my skin- then the steam rising off the tree and the stink of ozone. Here's a pic of the tree & its damage- my tree struck by lightning it blew some plants out of the ground and blew the pinestraw out at the base of the tree, but luckily no fire- I guess because everything was soooo wet! Kitties are jittery, they don't like all the noise. Poor Shan has had a rough year- really bad allergies for my poor girl. I suspect sinus srgery is the only thing that would solve her breathing problem but I'm still paying off my medical bills from chemo etc- saline nose rinses help her a lot but neither she nor I enjoy the process!shan 2016

Going to be a long night- 3 tornadoes so far (only one in my vicinity, still was 10 miles from my house). Cable was out for a while which made me very nervous (don't like being radar blind) but my furbearing tornado warning system says everything is ok!  sad to say a couple of people are dead-  one storm went close to a friend's place but it turned.
Edit: 37 injured so far, they are having a bad time to the West of my county!
Edit- it was a noisy night, but the bad stuff was all either north or west.

Finished chemo- YAY! Minor surgery tomorrow, not keen about being knocked out again, but glad to get this over with. Baldness is weird, when I walk it feels like I have wet hair- strange! I think kitties will be a lot happier when I no longer have the chemo smell- they have been acting stressed & sticking close.
  We had a heck of a rain a couple of days ago- luckily I heeded the warnings & sandbagged out front. The water overtopped slightly but did not get in the house (at one point it was raining 4 inches an hour). Several friends got flooded, one was watching tv when she realized her feet were wet- looked down to see water all over the floor & coming in fast. Poor things, cleanup after a flood is a mess! It took a big chunk out of the bridge about 7 blocks from me, the road is closed & crews working hard to fix it.

sorry I have not been on in a while- I have been in the hospital having a large mass removed from my abdomen. Turned out to be cancer, but early stage. My docs think I have an excellent chance with chemo. Soooo, getting extra cuddles from my kitties & working on a mental reset. This too shall pass...
here is Sebastion & Shan, cuddling against my leg offering encouragement-sebastian n shan

Just some info- I know I have not been on much lately but I've had medical issues & been in a lot of pain. Now that I FINALLY was allowed to see a doctor,they found the problem- a mass on my ovary. I also have Peritonitis - so NOT fun. I won't be online much- & they are trying to get me scheduled for surgery ASAP so I'll probably be seeing a lot of hospital time (they wanted me in today). I'll probably be paying for this for the rest of my life...  on the good side I'm loosing weight (which I needed to do)

I hope everyonehad a fun day! I have a bit of a cold but no biggie, kitties are all fine (though Shan hates the cold so she is mostly under the sheets of my bed).
  I have deveoped tumors in my foot so walking is not a pleasure, but I've found a good radiologist & treatment starts as soon as insurance approves.I've caught this early, so my odds are good :)    
I had a big art show at the history museum, they paired the paintings with items from their collections. It was really interesting, & there was a good turnout for the reception.
