On The Mend

Tobey came home from the vet yesterday.  They believe that he injured his tailbone when he was a young kitten and it never healed properly.  Then, he must have recently aggravated it.  They believe the pain from it was preventing him from going to the bathroom which caused more problems.  But, he is home and doing well.  He’s still not back to his old self, but in time I hope to see that Tobey spark again.

When It Rains, It Pours. . .

and hails and breaks your basement windows.

We had awful storms tonight and the worst hail that I’ve ever seen.  It broke three out of our four basement windows and I hate to even think about how our roof is holding up. 


I took this picture after it had been hailing for 20+ minutes, so the really large hail had already started melting.  But, it was insane! 

On top of this today, our cat Tobey had to spend all day and night at the vet’s office.  Last night, he could barely walk.  He would just collapse on the floor.  After running a multitude of tests, they found that he was severely constipated/impacted.  They saw something suspicious near his tailbone on an x-ray, but are going to further investigate tomorrow.  We’re not quite sure what is going on with him, but our house isn’t the same without him.  Please pray that he can come back home soon. . .healthy and ornery as ever!

It’s been a rough couple of weeks for me and my family.  It started with my grandma having a heart attack.  Today she was finally dismissed from the hospital where she has been on dialysis and is now in a rehabilitation hospital.  Please pray for her recovery and that she keeps her spirits up. Pray for my mom who is growing weary from trying to take care of everyone.  Pray for my mother-in-law who was recently diagnosed with bell’s palsy.  My week has also included a trip to the ER ( for me) and a trip to the dentist (for my husband) that resulted in a tooth being pulled.  He’ll now need an implant.  It’s just been really tough. . .most of it I can’t even discuss.  Please keep my entire family in your prayers.  I promise I’ll get back to blogging once everything settles down.
