Yup, I’m a big slacker. Like I mentioned in my last blog entry, I’ve felt pretty lousy lately, which has got me a bit down, which has caused me to lose interest in things. I’m glad to say I’m feeling better – my kidney infection seems to be totally gone. I’m still a bit weaker than normal but it’s getting better every day.
I also mentioned in my last blog that my little Mya may have to go back to have another tooth remove, as her lower canine was going through her cheek after her upper canine was removed a week earlier. It was so hard to bring her back to the vet and put her through that surgery again, but there was no way she could live like that. I was quite stressed all day and was so relieved when they called and said everything went well. I was allowed to go to the vet’s office and be with Mya while she was in recovery. It was really hard to see her so drugged:
She couldn’t even lift her adorable tiny head up and her front legs were completely spread. I basically had my head resting next to her for about an hour as she came to. Once home, she started to get very agitated and ran around non-stop, falling over occasionally. I decided she would be safest locked in the bedroom, so there was less for her to jump up on and possibly fall. It was Friday and Mike and I normally get fish and chips from the Legion less than a block away. He ran over and got the noms, and we both ate on the floor in the bedroom while Mya continued to run around. She even walked through my food at one point:
Fortunately, she is fully recovered now and back to her normal, adorable self. Mya is back to eating normally (both wet and dry food) – I’m kinda hoping she gains a little weight.
On a sad note, my little fishy, McCordelia, took her own life a couple weeks ago. There is a very small hole in tank where I put the feed through. She managed to jump out that little hole and onto the floor. RIP. The next day, I rescued another betta fish from those little cups in the pet store. Please meet McOthello:
Back to good news – my plane Vyctor had his annual medical inspection and everything is good. I saw him out on the ramp (without his pants) via the Flying Club camera:
It’s always so weird to see his spindle-struts once my mechanic removes his wheel pants for the winter. This is done so if I land on snow, it doesn’t go up into the pants and mess with the brakes.
On a final note, there was a fly on the ceiling in my bedroom while all of my cats were there. The resulting pics are rather amusing:
As usual, Abby was the one that caught it. Kinda glad I got it away from her before she ate it. Yuckaroos.
Today’s symptoms: A little weary but definitely feeling better than I have over the last few weeks, so no complaints! So glad that things are improving and my mood is picking up.
