Another day""""""""

O.k. lets just start with that great little kindle my hubby bought for me" would you believe that we couldn't use it to download books? well apparently there are three different ones and the one we bought you have to have wifi to download with. Why dosen't someone tell you these things. I thought maybe he didn't read far enough but when I went back and looked you really had to look hard to find out this information. Anyway the old one is being sent back and the new one will be on its way .
This has been an absolutely crazzy week. We have a beloved pet cat that we have had for almost nineteen years now. Welllllllll she suddenly came down with an eye that looked completely dead that was not showing her iris at all and her neck was completely bent in one side long direction. She could not stand up by herself and so she quit eating and drinking. This all started yestarday. Well needless to say I spent most of the nite sitting up with her because she kept crying . Hubby and I talked about it this morning and decided that she must have had some kind of a stroke and we would take her in just as soon as I got home from work and have her put too sleep. We didn't want her to suffer. Welllllllllll when we got to the vets office she said she didn't belive it was a stroke that was something that didn't usually happen to kitty cats and wanted to take some quick blood work. so we said go ahead. she came back out and all of her blood work looked good so she told us that she was pretty sure that it was an inner ear infection. I would have neverrrrr beleived that something like that could cause so much damage. She said the ear has lots of nerves involved and that is probably why the eye is rolled back into her head and the reason she can't stand up is because of the balance thing. sooooooo she said she would keep her tonite and give her plenty of fluids, antibiotics and ear drops. hopefully by tomorrow she will be getting back to normal. We were sooooooooooo releived. we had both gone in crying and expecting to take her home and bury her and instead she is being fixed and we will be able to enjoy her for years to come we hope". I actually said a prayer late last nite that God not let her suffer but this is sooooooo much better. and we are both sooooooo thankfull!
O.k. I am off to hunt for an applique giraff for my newest granddaughters quilt. Today I found some of the cutest little onsies and did I tell you that I made a big girl blanket for the youngest so she won't feel so badly moving into her todlers bed.

Well thank goodness it was an ear infection! You never know what you will learn with each new day. We have one that is 19 also - isn't it amazing how fast that time has flown away?

Those little onsies are precious.

When I can't find an applique pattern for something (i.e. your giraffe) I usually print off a free coloring book page from the web and make my own! As long as you aren't selling the pattern, it doesn't violate copywright laws....

Good luck on the hunt!

Blessings

Oh I hope kitty will be okay...what a scare for you two. The blankie is very pretty. I agree with the previous comment that you can just print something free...

Wow. That is amazing about your cat. How is Kitty now? It's fun having a new baby in the family isn't it? All the stuff to buy and make for them. AND the best part is the NEW BABY!
