This post has updates on my eye, our broken furnace, Ufi, and my playing basketball.
This time we have news on my eye, Ufi, and Scorpio.
The summer of stress and worry around here has continued until the fall. Yesterday afternoon, Scorpio, who is rarely sick, began vomiting. In about 10 hours, he vomited about a dozen times. He didn’t keep down his dinner or the ice cream Mom gave him. When he couldn’t keep down the boiled beef we tried this morning, it was time for him to go to the vet.
Today was a beautiful sunny day. It may have been the last warm sunny day this year. So, we made the most of it.
Ufi was very active today. He played with his ring a ton. He went in his pool a lot. I just love seeing him enjoying life that much.
Mr. Rogers has been outside for 15 hours. Whenever I sat down, the little guy came looking for attention. He is the friendliest, most loving cat I have ever known. He’s very needy, but Mr. Rogers is great at making you smile.
Scorpio spent lots of time outside too. As I listened to baseball, he settled next to me and wanted to be touched. Being typical Scorpio, if I stopped to change games, he would scratch at my arm or leg. He doesn’t scratch hard enough to hurt, but he lets you know you aren’t doing what you are supposed to be doing.
I played basketball for almost two hours. For a lot of that time, I was also tossing Ufi’s ring. It was a wonderful day! I hope we have more like them, but if this was it–we made the most of it.
This has been the worst week we have had in a long time. Still, we are trying to enjoy the good moments and not get sunk by the difficult ones.
Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the National ADA Symposium. The annual conference brings people working in the disability field together to learn from and network with each other. I really enjoyed the conference. I hope I get to go again next year. I came back from the conference energized and excited to use what I have learned.
Obviously, it has been too long since I posted. I have a lot to say.
It looks like spring is finally trying to spring. I won’t say it has sprung, because cool rainy weather may return this week. At least we have had a few nice days lately.
This update has news about Ufi, Emma, my job, and some needed home improvements.
In this personal update I discuss:
- Ufi’s adjusting to steroids
- My recovering from illness
- The best book I have recently read
- Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process
- An important anniversary
