Snagged this from coastal_spirit:

Apply for a new Disney.
Lose ten Star Wars by March.
Overcome my secret fear of parrots.
Learn to play the Deadwood.
Put fifty cats a month into my savings account.
Cut down on my writing.

The Redskins lost. DARN.

Man... my ankle still hurts. And my foot is turning black, which looks nasty. I did get an appointment in Orthopedic Surgery - for the 14th - but I talked at length with a nurse who says that I'm doing everything right and that it does not sound like a break. The only other thing he suggested was that I get something to support it, which I've now done.

A Rosa report from my roomie - which is actually about a week old now - is under the cut. If anyone is curious about the details of her problem, my roomie tells it better than me.

Rosa and Bless all the neighbors and vets that helped

Abcess was apparently behind the adenoid and had a channel into the areas vet opened. After sonogram and endoscopy, he couldn't see the primary abcess shutting off her windpipe. Used cortisone and releived the pressure and some of the inflmmation. IT WAS AWFUL to hear her trying to breathe. He said if she passed out from lack of oxygen it could be over. But he saved her. She was still leaking liquid, but much more fluid and less infected when I called yesterday to doublecheck *normal* and what to watch for. Vet's wife, who I will forthwith not say anything about, gave me some good advice and then called her husband while on her way to visit Santa w/ boys, and pulled her off the shots. She could not believe Rosa was still being an angel about the shots. I never even had to halter her. When I described the fluid coming out while eating, she thinks it hit a siliva gland and you know, I think she's right. That's harder to heal, but the wound looks ever so much better and she is eating everything in sight. Also, we can see some small weight gain. I've been given the best Christmas present that could be! My baby. Housemouse, Kat's roommate.

Dec 30 - all drainage but siliva has stopped and that is only leaking when she eats. She's gained some and needs about 200 lbs more, but trotting and moving pretty freely. She's come and greeted me twice this week so I think we will make the grade. Thank all the powers that be!


The fact that your foot is turning black worries me about the possibility of it being broken. Once, a very long time ago, Wes stepped off of a sawhorse and turned his ankle - didn't even really note it much at the time. However, his foot swelled up and turned black, and he did have a fracture and spent some time in a cast. I'm glad that you're getting it checked out!

Glad to hear that Rosey is showing improvement.

And oh! you're not supposed to cut down on your writing! Never!
