Okay, so maybe Mom will get a REAL post up soon, but in the meantime, here's an update:
1) My Granny is out of the hospital (YAY, Granny!!!), and it sounds like she is doing much better. I am certain that all of your healing thoughts helped her immensely. She says thank you, BTW.
2) TaiChi had to go to the vet, two days in a row. A few days ago she started being all squinty-eyed, and since she didn't have her pirate hat on, I knew she wasn't playing Pirate. Our regular vet checked her eyes, and determined that she hadn't scratched the eye, but that she had more 'pressure' in her squinty eye, suggesting that maybe she had "glaw-coma". So they suggested that she get to a vet that specializes in eyes (they've got some big long name for them, but I can't spell it), and Mom was able to get her an appointment The Very Next Day. The specialty vet checked her eyes and determined three things:
a) she didn't have "glaw-coma" (Yay!)
b) she does have an inflammation in the middle and inner part of her eye, but they can give her medications for this, even though she has heart and kidney problems, and it should be all better in a couple of weeks (Yay, again! Although I want to buy her a Pirate hat in the meantime... I may have to see what Photoshop and I can do...)
c) she has "senile cataracts" (which has nothing to do with waterfalls, I found out); this means that while she can see, she can't see well enough to drive (or read, but she's more of a teevee person anyway), so Mom has finally had to take her car keys away. TaiChi's bummed about this, but since she can't see over the dashboard in the Big Yellow Car, she's not too sad. However, since I'm not old enough to drive yet, TaiChi and Bufus and I now have to rely completely on Mom and Dad for our transportation needs. I'm not sure what I think about this, as TaiChi was always up for a midnight Frosty Paws run...
3) Mom and Dad are "taking the day off" (from bye-sickle-ing) because they are Very Tired from their ride yesterday. In my experience when Mom and Dad take the day off, I either get to go on a long hike, or I get to go to The Park. And I think today is going to be another Park day!!! I hope Maggie is there! And I saw a box from Petco come in, so I bet there might be something for me to chase in there!
Anyhoo, that's the non-photographed excitement for the day. Maybe if we go to The Park (hint, hint!), Mom will get some pictures.
