Jude's Happy Now

When J rescued Rescue, he asked if he could stay here ONE day, after he was thru at the vet's.  I agreed,,,to ONE day.  He's a wonderful young kitty, very smart, BUT,, i was put in the position of having to choose, him or Jude.  Jude is so gentle, he doesn't understand that Rescue was chasing him to play, and he quit coming in my yard even.  That was it!  J took Rescue to his gf's house late yesterday and Jude showed up later, and was even at my back door this morning.  You could hear him purring thru the whole house,,,lol.  After all these weeks, he's still looking around like he's gonna be jumped, but,,,at least he's showing up now.  I wasn't gonna just dump him,,,i was gonna take him to J's house.

Not sure what time those storms showed up, think about 1 am,,,but there was sure a lot of noise.  It did that about 3 times, thru the rest of the nite.  Hail with it too.  News said it was up to 1" here.  I heard it at times, but i just went back to sleep.  Got the house open today, feels good.  Can't tell the front is here but i guess it is.

16 days,,,til surgery,,,lol.  Yeah, we're counting the days, he says it will be like pulling a thorn.  I've told him it will never be this way again,,,because he will have the medical coverage from now on.  It's been over 2 years getting to this point.  We didn't know that it didn't come with disability.  So going thru all the choices and being turned down, over and over,,took all that time.  Thank God for this PCIP that covers people with the pre-existing conditions.  And i will give Obama credit,,he's the one that did it.

Well, my dishes are still there,,,in the dish water,,,so yall tc, and

Good for you to make sure rescue was in fact rescued...Glad J's surgery is coming up and that he is insured for the future and for now..We have 2 cats they mostly tend to themselves and I got two condos specially made for them I saved up had a child hood friend who went to Viet Nam came back with bad ptsd and injury, he makes the best condos ever, I pay him well and he eats every sunday in our home and takes food home, I cannot stand to think he won't eat and I bought 5 blankys for him and had a friend together with me make a nice quilt, got new sheets, pillowcases, his home is clean and tidy and he has two cats used to be feral now they stay in his tiny log home all cozy, sometimes he forgets to eat so sundays is stay at our home, football, food and friendship with mary and elli that is my name and my hubbs too..we have known him most of our life, his family is missing in action so he is our family now..Our cats adore him and purr to high heaven when he is here, he pets them and they nuzzle up to him..Love Love Love your blog, praying for your J and that God will heal him and that operation too!

  4. My son had back surgery and now has a lot of rods, pins, and screws in his lower back but it was worth it for him and sure it will be worth it for your son.

    1. lol DD, this is the 5th one on his spine. He's so full of metal has to allow lots of extra time to get thru a metal detector. This will take out a lot in his lower back (not the one on the inside) and add one above. Besides the spine, it's in his elbows, ankles,,,not sure where else. Think he said 14 of them.

  6. Well you did keep your end of the bargain and then some by taking him in for longer than anticipated. Jude has first dibs on your household.

    I sincerely hope this operation will be the definite one and that your son will no longer be in pain...and yeah it is worthy of a countdown!
