looks like i needed a one month hiatus

That was a little longer than I expected. First, no one is dead; Mom is doing just fine with her new pacemaker, she's back at work now and feeling good. I'm finally over the stomach and sinus crud which had me hating life, just in time for the snow today here in Huntsville.

I realized I also needed a mental health break. I came to the realization (a few months late and reluctantly) that the neuropathy I've been battling for almost a year now is permanent. No treatments for the actual problem, just medications to keep the symptoms from being too bothersome. Yeah, I had a nice, long private pity party.

I hope I'm over that now, and get back to my musings, rantings, and whatever the hell else I feel like posting here. Oh, and cats. What, you thing I forgot about the kitties? Nope, here's Callie Bellatrix viscously attacking my brother-in-law's shoes.


Die, evil shoe, die!

Callie is, as always, beautiful.

How could anyone abandon such a beautiful cat?

I have no idea. At least she'll never be abandoned again, and she knows it. The house is her playground now, which took a little while for relax enough to play like a kitten, even though she is about 2 years old.

Welcome back! You were truly missed. Glad to hear mom is well, Callie is growing more comfortable in her new home every day, and your spirits are on the mend. You've been in my prayers.

Thank you very much. I didn't realize how much I needed a mental health month, and not worry about "am I going to miss the next COTC?" or anything blogging related. It may take a few days to get back in the full swing of things, but I think I'm ready.

All best to your Mom, of course. Amazing what modrin' medicine can do, sometimes.
