Normal never happens

Mom Kim here - I love Tweety, so much of what he says 

seems to fit my life - at times it even seems like what he 

says is tailored-made for me.  Anyway, not long ago the

Beaglebratz said something like they were here that day 

but not sure when they would be back - the last few days 

have been a good example of that and this post might 

even be the last from any of us for awhile.  I had an

appointment with my cornea specialist this past Tuesday,

9/10, and he was a little encouraged with the healing of

the epithelial defect (skin tear like) on my cornea and also

replaced the bandage contact lens I was wearing which

sort of facilitates the healing - by the next morning that 

lense had come out and the defect was worse again so

back to my local eye doc to get the lense replaced 

(that was on Wednesday);  This would happen again on

Thursday, 8/12 - I was off all last week due to poor vision,

was at work this past Monday and Tuesday then have 

been off work Wednesday and Thursday this week and 

it is unclear when I will return to work.  Outside of using 

the lens, there is nothing more that can be done for at 

at least the next month; remember the skin lesion on my 

nose - well that did prove to be a Basal Cell Carcinoma 

and I am scheduled to have it surgically removed with 

reconstructive surgery on 9/23 and my eye specialist will 

not do anything more until it heals (I totally get this).  Now

IF that contact lens would STAY PUT and do its job then I

hope and pray I can return to work ASAP otherwise, I

have NO idea when/if I will go back to work.

On the homefront - the Beaglebratz are doing good -

Shiloh continues to improve - sometimes trotting around

and holding his tail up high.  He continues to limit 

himself - will not even try to jump up on furniture.  I 

was giving the B-bratz their Duralactn when they BOTH

came trotting out to the kitchen and BOTH started to jump

up which did make me smile but I immediately told them 

down - hopefully Shiloh'n Diva Shasta will soon be doing 

this again  but right now the only play is between me and Diva Shasta.
Well, in case I can go to work tomorrow, I need to get the 

B-bratz out so I can get them back in and we can all get to

bed.  Just in case we can't get back real soon, here is my
favorite pic of all of us so you all can remember who 

we are->

Oh my, your plate is really full. All that I can say is that I am sending you lots and lots of healing thoughts. I hope that lens stays in place, and that your eye heals. I hope that your nose surgery goes super smoothly. And I hope that Shiloh keeps improving.

I couldn't agree more about the notion that there is no normal!!!

The B-Bratz will pull you through; prayers for all - good boy, Shiloh! I love Duralactn for the frequent bumps and limps we see here. Keep the faith, Kim - if you need help, please let me know.

Mom Kim....
I love, love, love that Tweety picture and sentiment!! It serves so very true for me!! I used to like Tweety Bird as a girl growing up. I even saved my allowance to by me a canary.... Until eventually changing my mind!! Oh well, we also owned a cat!! Not sure how a canary would have passed by old Goldie.... ;)
I am so sorry, Friend!! I will miss your Blog, but remember that I'll never, ever, ever forget you!! That is a promise!! Stay strong. Keep positive thoughts coming. Hang in there. And GET BETTER!! ;op
