I’m Glad My Life is Dull

Mr Hemingway

Hi Readers!!!  This is me enjoying the cooler weather outside.  It’s been a real whirlwind around here this weekend.  First of all, look who’s home:

Mr Steinbeck

Oh man…….why are you putting that picture of me in the blog???  This was the first time I came home on Thursday night and I still wasn’t good.  The doctor lady thought I would be okay ‘cuz I had peed on my own.  However, I did that just so they would let me out of there.  Once I got home I wouldn’t eat and I didn’t do too much moving.  Mom was getting pretty concerned when she left for work Friday morning.

Mom had been at work for a couple of hours and suddenly the phone rang.  She was really surprised to hear her neighbor’s voice.  She didn’t think anyone knew her work number ‘cuz half the time Mom doesn’t even know it!  Anyway, our neighbor told Mom that the police were looking for her.  I promise that I didn’t call them claiming abuse for not getting enough catnip.  Mom couldn’t figure out what was going on and was afraid something had happened to her brother and nephew who were on a road trip.

Before Mom could call the police and find out what was happening, the phone rang again and it was her clinic.  Turns out Mom had really low Halloween Goblins (Hemingway, that’s hemoglobin).  Anyway her doctor told her she had to get to emergency right away and get a blood transfusion.

PANIC!!!!  Mom got home and called the vet to see about taking Steinbeck back since he wasn’t doing good and her doctor had told her she might have to stay in the hospital.  Steinbeck went for yet another ride over to the vet’s and Mom gave them her cell phone number and her neighbor’s cell phone number and told them she was on the way to the hospital.  Her neighbor drove her over there and she got checked in.

When they were hooking her up for the transfusion, there was a knock on the door and the nurses asked Mom if she was expecting anyone.  She laughed and said she gave at the office.  Anyway, turns out it was her neighbor.  Steinbeck was having problems and they wanted him in a clinic that was open 24 hours.  Mom, our neighbor and the vet all talked it over (while Mom was getting blood) and our neighbor said she would take Steinbeck.

Another crisis settled.  Then Mom’s niece, who is a nurse at that hospital, called her and luckily she wasn’t working so she could come and get Mom and bring her home when they were finished.

Mom got home and then had to go over to the clinic to see Steinbeck and sign some papers.  Finally she got home and stayed put.

Yesterday she got together with some friends from her old job.  She was glad she was able to make that.  However, when she got home, she ended up taking a two hour nap.  Today she’s been running around doing stuff, but she did manage to find time to spend in the hammock.  The dizzies and stuff are still there and she knows she has more tests ahead of her now but at least she’s not white like my feet any longer.  She has a little color now……..other than gray!

Steinbeck came home again last night and this time he’s doing better.  He is hiding under the couch ‘cuz he’s afraid someone is going to take him to another doctor.  He has been seen walking around the house and going down to the litter box.  He even ate some in the middle of the night.

See……..that’s why I like having a dull life.  Look at all those two have been through this weekend!!!  They both said they really appreciate the prayers and concerns expressed by everyone.  They are both on the way to healing so that’s a good thing.

  1. I am sorry your mom and brother had to go through all that. I hope they are both healthy soon. I am glad I have a boring life too. XO

  2. Wishing your Mom and Steinbeck all the best, my dear friend! Glad you’re taking good care of them…

  3. oh my goodness! So many things going on there for sure….I’m happy you have a helpful neighbor too because it was just too much to handle. I bet your Mom was scared about the Halloween Goblins (!) but hopefully she’s right as rain now and feeling good. Same with poor Steinbeck. He looks so very miserable in that photo – it was too soon to come home maybe but if he’s home again now after another vet visit and eating and visiting the litter box, maybe he’s over that awful infection. We’re sending about a ton and a half of POTP for Mom AND Steinbeck……and I’m just happy that you are taking care of everyone Hemingway! Bravo!

    Hugs, Teddy

  4. Wow! I’m exhausted after reading this post. Pam, I really hope you’re taking care of yourself. Hopefully your upcoming tests will determine what the doctor needs to prescribe. Also, I hope Steinbeck is going to be alright. He’s been through a lot! 🙏🙏🙏

    1. Steinbeck is out of hiding and is playing with his red dot and eating and using the litter box so he’s doing great. I go in for some scans tomorrow morning. I know there are more tests ahead of me.

Purrs, meows, barks, chirps and human comments are greatly appreciated. We love hearing from our readers.
