This has been a tough week. My poor daughter, Allie has been so sick. We had her to the emergency on Tuesday night worried about West Nile only to be told that it was flu. Take tylenol and get lots of rest. Well, not so easy when your ears and head are pounding with pain and you are throwing up crackers. I hate to see my kids sick. I want to change places with them and deal with it myself instead of them. The best I could do was be close by and sit with her, make her soup and keep a cold cloth on her head. I brought Ensure to her today because it was discovered that she had lost 4 lbs this week. She is exhausted. This is a very tough flu virus. She is at day 5 with very little relief. Just today her doctor put her on antibiotics to help with the pounding pain in her ears..
I've been feeling very melancholy this week. It was 15 years ago today that my mom passed away. I miss that wonderful woman every day.
I was off to let Max in, put Buddy to bed and pill Bailey. 8, 9, 10..yep; still have all my fingers. The cat-sitting has slowed down for 2 days and that is good right now.
Allie so sick. I had a new cat to meet tonight and 3 more tomorrow and return keys to one client that is moving away.
Puff but that is all part of providing a cat-sitting service. There is always a down side to every job.
Dinner at my friend, Susan's home was wonderful. It was a great 'pick me up' to break up this tiring week. She has the sweetest table and chair set that she painted for her 'peas'. Drop by and take a peek.http://readymadecosmos.blogspot.ca/
It's midnight, I'm home from Allie's and I'm hittin' the sack.
