We did another Craig’s List post yesterday, and managed to sell Al’s big tool box right away. The guy that bought it was a machinist and was very glad to get it. He even sent us a thank you email after he got home. Do you think we may have sold it too cheap? At least it’s gone!
Update on Squeaky
I finally broke down and took Squeaky back to the vet for a checkup. We needed to run some blood work to see what/if any progress has been made.
She’s been on antibiotics over a month (this round) and I was hoping we could take her off some of the meds. The antibiotics are making her sick to her stomach and I really hate to keep forcing them into her. She’s getting extremely tired of having pills shoved into her 7 times a day and is starting to fight me. It breaks my heart to have to do this to her because she’s at the point where she hates to see me coming! She used to love me so much and now she avoids me. Heartbreaking!
She has Cholangiohepatitis. It’s basically a bacterial infection in the gallbladder, pancreas, liver, and bile duct area. It’s extremely hard to cure and can be fatal. Evidently it’s quite common in cats, but this is the first I’ve heard of it.
The vet drew some blood and ran a whole series of tests. The good news is that a lot of things have improved. The bad news is that it’s not enough, and she still needs to continue the meds. At least we know there is some improvement. The vet wants me to continue what we’re doing and check her again in 3-4 weeks. She was encouraged though and so I felt better. I know I have to keep the meds up and even though they make her feel bad, they are helping her….so I have to do it!
Update on house sale
The Realtor sent an email yesterday stating the mortgage broker “got the approval for the property and will order the appraisal tomorrow.” I guess that means things are finally progressing. I just hope the appraisal will be okay and not find anything we need to do.
We have started mowing the pasture….the last time? It’s about 4-5 acres and is a very big project. We normally only mow it monthly during the summer and we were hoping to not have to mow it before we moved. I was trying to ignore it, but Al guilted me into mowing it. I started yesterday afternoon and mowed until I couldn’t mow anymore, then he mowed a while longer. A few days like that and it will be done….for the last time!
