Here it is December 17th, and I am so far behind - Faster than Todd, Christmas is coming, ready or not. And I am really not ready.
I keep having to remind myself to not stress over how much needs to get done. But it's hard not to be that way. This past week has been an unusually busy one, and it's not all because of Christmas.
Our little foster kitty, Lucille had her final surgery this past week to remove the pins in her leg. Two final weeks of confinement for her. When her staples are removed, she'll be allowed to be a cat again.
Off to the vet on another day with Bo. He's not been feeling well. At least I think that he hasn't. He is so hard to read. But he has no energy and is sleeping through practically everything. Blood tests show nothing to be concerned about, so a few other tests may be on the agenda for him.
Finally there's Jake. We are at 318 days since he left the shelter. Today he's struggling to stay standing and walk, and I'm not sure why. I've added another pain medication in hopes that the soreness that he has in his front leg will ease and he'll be fine. If not, a vet trip will be on the agenda for him too.
I did get the approval this week from the rescue for Max's second knee surgery. I'll schedule that on Monday with the date of after the holidays in mind. The lovely Eevah is scheduled for her spay surgery at the start of the year, so she and Max can recover together. I did hear from Retired Lady this past week asking how she was doing. Retired Lady has heard nothing whatsoever from the kennel where she got her, and she has not followed through with the complaints that she was going to file against them. I still feel the need to be cautious.
But I'm also feeling a bit of a relief that maybe "E's" past is behind her, as we look ahead to Christmas.
