I was depressed for all of it.
Pretty uneventful, except for Torbie getting into my lap during a movie Ron wanted me to watch. Ron has bad taste in movies and the last one made me cry horribly for poor lost Gravy.
However, I knew this one was billed as a comedy so I wasn't too worried. Torbie got in my lap and laid her head on my shoulder, so cute. I just had to stay there and pet her. The movie wasn't bad "The Intern". Torbie left after a while, leaving a nice sprinkling of orange and brown cat hair all over me.
I went to bed pretty early and, yet again, woke up with a headache at 1 AM. I haven't "quite" started my period yet, just spotting, so I assume it is hormonal. I have been pretty careful in what I eat.
I took some aspirin and went back to bed. I was able to fall asleep but woke up with a worse headache (just like yesterday) at about 6. I took some OTC headache pills with caffeine and got up.
Biscuit was very impatient for his breakfast. I gave him a can of salmon and chicken liver. All of them love it. I've even caught Torbie nibbling.
I gave them that and took a shower. When I got out I felt well enough to take my medication. If I take my medication before the headache pills have worked, I'll vomit and go straight to a migraine, but I can't walk around depressed and hallucinating, either.
I also noticed my allergies were worse last night, because I had missed a dose of the claratin.
Torbie didn't sleep with me, either, which made me sad, but I probably smell bad to her and I know I tend to roll over on her.
She gets her cone off tomorrow, and probably her stitches out, and I know she'll be thrilled. The vet is really nice and truly loves animals. She (the vet) thought it was really cute that Biscuit kept purring during his exam.
I need to decide which flea treatment I am going to use for them in a week or so. Will I get name brand Advantage, the generic (which seems to work fine), or the generic Frontline? Decisions, decisions.
I don't think I have to worry *as much* about fleas because they aren't "really" outside.
Biscuit was feeling feisty this morning. He threw up in the hall (he's bulimic), and then took a flying leap at the mouse pad while I was typing, lost his grip, and dug a claw into my right index finger for "balance". I ended up with a very bloody finger but it doesn't hurt.
Dad always used to say you didn't have to worry much about cleaning a wound if it bled a lot, and this one sure did. I washed it with antibacterial soap and put some generic (in case you haven't noticed, I am kind of the generic queen) Neosporin on it. It should be fine.
I will just keep taking my Vitamin E so I don't scar.
Pretty sad, it is so hot I can't even order more Vitamin A online, it would melt in transit. I have to get it at Walmart.
I just came back. I found the name brand Advantage "Large Cat" (mine are definitely) at Walmart so I went ahead and bought it. I also got the Vitamin A (store brand seems to work OK). Between that and the protein bars, I had a pretty hefty tab, but Ron paid for it.
Ron just wanted some "Y" adapters, with two RCA plugs on one end, and a male stereo plug on the other end.
I bought some chips, and ice cream, but only 2 pints. I got chocolate for the Vet's staff (always a big hit, whenever I go anywhere medical I bring chocolate), and a case of the liver and salmon canned cat food my guys like so much.
I also bought some coated Bayer aspirin. Lithium and friends are very hard on my stomach, so it seems prudent to take an aspirin with a safety coating. I don't need to eat a hole in my stomach lining from all these headaches.
We finished it all up with plenty of time to spare. "That yogurt" I told Ron "Didn't last very long". So I got some food at McDonald's when we finished. We ate that, our ride came fast.
I tried to use the listmaking app on my cell phone. I finally ended up getting a piece of paper and a pen. Sometimes the old way works best!
I had an old (literally) college professor who used to say all computers were "giant pencils", to remember that, and not to let them intimidate us. "Giant pencils".
Mine is a giant pencil that has a post-doc in confusion.
