What has been happening.

Well, this is the state of being here in the suburbs of the Motorcity:

We are home again.  A quick run to the homestead.  Mom was doing very badly, not having a bowel movement in eight days.  We also had a Dr. saying, "We have never had anyone die of constipation and if she were not on IV's I would send her home." (!!)  Finally, they did a colonoscopy, on the morning I got home, and that "broke the dam."  Why this didn't happen sooner, I don't know.  Hopefully, she will be able to come home soon.

Dad is in a rehab center.  He always says it is horrible, but he seems to be doing well.  He is eating better and is up doing therapy.  He is afraid that he is going to be there permanently, but we keep reassuring him that it is only for a short time. 

We have inherited another cat.  A few years ago I decided a cat would be a good thing for my dad, something for him to take care of.  Now it is too difficult for my parents to care for the cat so it was either I take her or she goes to "kitty Jesus."  So now we have two cats and the proces of them learning to live together begins.

Oh, and the photo is for Lemuel, I saw this and knew how much you LOVED those wire mesh animals and thought you would love these too!

Those horses are very odd. I can't stop staring at them.

thank you for the updates.

Eewwwwww!!!!! (Seriously, that pic made my flesh crawl, and that was when I first brought up the post - without having yet seen your shout out. I do not understand quite why I react that way, but I have since I was a little child. Subconsciously(?) it reminds me of rotting flesh and carcases.)

I'm glad your mom had a breakthrough (no pun intended) and that your dad is also making progress. I was also happy to hear that you were able to take the cat.

I hope the two kitties are learning to get along. We have been talking about getting another cat sometime within the next few months.
