Yeah, about that...

Apparently my vow to blog more often was in vain. But here I am. Not much new, still can't stand the neighbour upstairs, but more so. I refuse to complain, I just hope the karma will suffice. Braden is still very ill, we hope to be going soon to a surgeon in St. Louis, Missouri. It's been 2 years next month since he first got sick. :( Life is a daily battle for him, poor guy. Henry (my cat) has also been ill on and off, in spite of his lifesaving surgery. I fear that his life may not be very long, but I hope that we make up for it in quality what he may not have in quantity. He definitely enriches our lives and is a wonderful pet and friend. I'm not going to promise to blog soon with all the things going on here, but I will try! D.

Forgive me for I have not blogged

My only excuse is this year has been absolute hell with Braden's illness.
Where to begin: Braden had to quit school in May due to his illness. He's been to sooo many doctors, nobody in Hamilton could help him so we had to go to Mt. Sinai in toronto, then Toronto Western in Toronto, and finally, Etobicoke. Today was the day we saw Dr. Peter Watson in Etobicoke, the first doctor in 19 months of this nightmare who says he knows what's wrong and has hope for his prognosis. Yay!!
What else. We moved in July. Love the house, not so fond of the upstairs neighbour.
My son Alex got engaged to his girlfriend Amanda. Yay!!
My car died in June. Boo. Public transportation. Boo.
Henry's doing well. Yay!!
I resolve to blog more often. I mean it this time!

My Cat is Insane Part 412

He runs like a speed demon through my house and dive bombs onto my bed...
Last night he was doing one of his cat fit runs and jumped up right into the middle of my dinner plate while I was eating it, leaving a trail of gravy and broccoli florets while he skidded down the hallway afterwards. Needless to say, that was the end of dinner.

I was reading some of my older posts and this really is the most depressing blog!! Sadly, it's only what happens in my life, should I sugarcoat it?? ;)
Things went well with the heart procedure, they say meds will be enough to control it. So see, some good news for once!
Braden is doing much better behaviourally than he was a year ago, but is still having medical issues with his mouth and his stomach.
I'm having issues with my right eye again, the optometrist says there's fluid in my macula; so off the the retina specialist again. No worries, I'm used to the health stuff by now, so whatever!\
My little Henry is a joy to me. He's such a sweet, affectionate little guy. He'll never replace Chloe, of course, but I do love him dearly and it has helped my heartache over her loss a lot.

Missing you

A year ago today I lost my little Chloe. Words still can't express my grief. I still miss her with all my heart. RIP my sweet babyjane, life hasn't been the same without you. :( :(

Christmas was good; enjoyed a quiet one with my boys. :) They went and stood in line at 1 am boxing day for me so I could get a new computer which I'm typing on and it's fantastic! They're good boys. :) Braden and I went and got a new wireless router today too and it's awesome. Braden's still having issues from his wisdom teeth removal surgery two freakin' months ago so hopefully the dentist can get him in AGAIN tomorrow. Seems neverending!
I'm going to make homemade turkey soup tomorrow.
Teaching make up lessons on Wednesday, then the heart procedure on Thursday.
Blog soon.

Merry Xmas

My god, I can't believe I haven't blogged since summer, and it's Xmas this weekend!! I really should blog more often.
So let's see...the health issues continue...wearing the permanent leg braces all the time now: had to have them modified but they're tolerable now. Had another spinal injection procedure on Friday. And found out last week that I may have a blocked coronary artery and I'm scheduled to have an angiogram and possible angioplasty next Thurs, Dec. 30th. The good times just never stop here!! Hopefully all will be well.
Really missing Chloe, my first Xmas without her in 17 years. Henry does help fill the void and he is so lovable and sweet, but I don't think I'll ever stop missing my little Chloe.
Wow, I'm just full of Christmas cheer here, eh! lol
I am baking cookies at the moment, so I'm trying! :):)
Happy holidays to all!
