It's been awhile since my last posting. 'Didn't realize it.
My life is quite different from 7 months ago. Am still trying to come to terms with it. I have a few good friends that have been very supportive. Other people.....not so much(my younger sister hated that phrase!). I think that some people don't understand what it is like to lose someone that you have lived with for many many years. If it is not a spouse or partner, their understanding of the situation seems to go out the window.
3 weeks ago out of the blue, the cat attacked me quite viciously. Badly enough that a trip to the hospital was warranted. 2 nights later, I thought I had a fever and went back to the hospital. Had a test and everything was okay. I had to be sure. I was on medicine for 2 weeks and the wounds have been healing fairly well. There was a lot of swelling from the knees down, but it has since gone down a lot.
I am not sure what happened to the cat to make him attack me like that. It had never been to that extent before. Some swipes, of course. I am glad that I blocked out some of the attack.
The little guy went to kitty heaven the day after Valentine's. It was such a hard thing for me to do, but I think he was in pain both physically and emotionally.
Now, I have lost 2 buddies in 4 months. What a challenging time. Sad, too. I miss the lovable cat I knew and my little sister who could always make me laugh.
I have been trying to keep up with my Etsy work. It's been hard, but I am trying.
Something good: some of the spring flower bulbs are peaking through the soil. :)
