Rain, Rain, Go Away

 

Wesley Chapel, Florida

 

We have some sort of low pressure system out in the gulf, so we’ve been getting rain several times throughout the day.  This has been going on for about a week now, so we’re getting tired of it.  So far nothing severe, so I guess we shouldn’t complain. This time of year, these systems can develop into a hurricane, so I guess we’d better shut up and quit complaining!

We took Mom to see the cardiologist on Wednesday. She increased the dosage on one of her medications, and it seems that it may be helping her with the “spells” she often complains about.  I sure hope so.  I am now thinking these spells may just be the acid reflux, so if we can find some relief from that, maybe we can get her feeling better.  I didn’t see much point in visiting a cardiologist but I’m glad we did.  The doctors all seem to be working together to figure things out, but it’s difficult because she can’t explain the spells, only to say they make her feel really bad. 

I felt fine all day, but later in the day,  I felt a burning in my chest and throat area, like bad indigestion.  I was wondering if it was something I had eaten, but it got worse, then I started getting very nauseous and sicker and sicker.  I was hoping it was something I ate, but after having chills, and aching joints, I think I might have picked up a bug of some sort.  I spent a good 24 hours in bed.  It’s been a long, long time since I’ve been that sick and I sure hope Mom doesn’t catch it.   I decided not to tell her I was sick, because for sure she’d get it then.  :)   

Today starts a week of kitty sitting for one of our neighbors.  They have 4 cats, a golden retriever and a Yorkie.  The dogs went to a kennel. They intended on leaving the cats home with some food and water out and a family member would come once or twice to check on them.  That worried me, so I volunteered us to watch the cats at their place.  It’s hot in Florida this time of year and if the a/c should fail,  they could come home to four dead kitties.  It’s easier for us to take care of them, then for me to worry the entire week.  Now they can go on their cruise and not worry.  They are right across the street, so it’s no trouble to walk over and check on them, and the kitties are very sweet, so we will enjoy it.

Nothing much going on, nothing much to write about.  We would love to be back in the mountains for the 4th of July, but I’m not sure that’s going to work.  In the meantime, we’re keeping busy around here.

  2. I would do exactly what you are doing. I would have worried myself sick for those little ones. They also love the physical touch of a person when they are that small. Good job!

    1. They are full grown cats Marsha...even though I call them kitties. Boy if they were kittens, I would have really loved the job!

  3. So sorry to hear you are stuck in the rain and the heat with your place in N.C. calling your name. Hope you'll be able to get up there soon and that you are feeling better. That bug sounds terrible.

  4. Glad to hear you are checking on the cats. Can't risk leaving them in a hot RV this time of year.

  5. When we had dogs and cats the cats got equal care and went to the kennel too. Expensive, but then I didn't have to worry about them. I really do not miss having animals in the RV. No fur tor keep cleaning up.

  7. So sorry you were sick - that sounded awful! Bummer about the rain. I like that kind of weather, but I'm not out riding bikes and cruising in boats. I can see how it would interfere with your normal activities.

    You're a sweetheart for volunteering to check on the cats. The neighbors will have a better time on their cruise not worrying about them. Maybe your karmic reward will be some nice weather. :)

  8. I wish I had you for a neighbor in an RV park, but I don't have kitties.Like you, I enjoy taking care of friends' animals and the bonus is they often reciprocate.

    Sure sounds like it's time to head for the hills. Hope you can head north soon.

  10. I hope this finds you feeling alot better!!! Sounds like a rough "bug."
    We are tired of all the rain ourselves. We can't even get the rest of this house painting because of it. Enough already. Huge trees are beginning to fall. Hope it stops soon for all of us!!
