A turn of an event

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.   :)
