Wow, I haven't written in here in eight days...eight long days! I'm trying to catch up on life. When I was away at the hospital, it seemed like life kind of accelerated and left me behind and I am trying to catch up! I feel like screaming, "Hey life, shut down a couple of days so I can catch up!!" But it is not going to do that. Oh well. I am going to slowly have to chip away and get things done.
Things went well at the hospital. I was in there for two nights and two days. The needle that was placed in my shunt reservoir slipped out the first night so I had to stay a second. The doctor concluded that I had very, very low pressure and was wondering why I wasn't having alot of headaches. "Nope," I told him, "I am just stupid all the time and have alot of memory problems." So, he doesn't know if they are going to convert the non-programmable shunt into a programmable one yet. He is going to confer with the neuro-surgeon. We will see. I will keep you posted!
I wanted everyone to meet a new edition to my buddies that hang around my computer. This is Marbles "The Partying" Moose. Krissy gave him to me at the hospital. I think he is the happiest looking moose on the planet!! What do you guys think? He took his rightful place next to Sheila The He Monkey and Scotty The Orangutan over the weekend. They are all getting acquainted and he is fitting in very, very well! Thanks for this, Krissy! Krissy came to the hospital with me and was such a swell buddy. She took really, really good care of me!! You are THE BEST, Krissy doll!!
I was watching Baby, who, by the way is getting HUGE, over the weekend. Let me show you...
Baby just turned six months old here! He is ten pounds already! My, oh my! Anyway, I was watching him chase his exquisitely long tail. Round and round in circles he was going and I was laughing away. Well, lo-and-behold, he caught his tail!! With one paw he held his tail down and with the other paw he stomped and stomped the base of his tail. I was laughing hysterically!! I always wondered what would happen if a dog or cat caught its tail what would they do? Well, now I know what this kitty would do!
My kitties are getting along better now that Baby is getting older. He is getting a bit aggressive, though, now that he needs neutered. I am taking him in this month to get that done. The kitties were so happy this weekend because Spring had finally sprung and they had sunshine after a month of rain and clouds.
Here is what they were doing yesterday in my living room window...
In the last picture Baby was attacking a bug that got into the window. That was a lucky shot!
Well, I am going to get off here and get a few things done that I have neglected for too many days!
I hope you enjoyed my pictures of my week and I hope they didn't take too long to download! I am going to leave you with something that I read out of a book last night that I am reading on happiness. I think it is oh-so-true!:
~ Once basic needs are met (food, clothing, shelter), the message is clear: we don't need more money, we don't need greater success or fame, we don't need the perfect body or even the perfect mate - right now at this very moment, we have a mind, which is all the basic equipment we need to achieve complete happiness.
