May 2, 2017 Some more catching up

Hi dear furends! We really seem to have a bit of a streak of bad luck right now… Yesterday, my Dad cut himself into the ring finger of the right hand with a vegetable grater… It wasn’t pretty. Lots of bleeding. But it’s not serious at all thankfully, but he can’t really do much with the bandage on him. He also doesn’t have full use of his left hand due to a Meningitis as a small child. Which means I’m helping out with things that involve the more fine motor skills, like cutting up all the food, so he can just grab little pieces. Pouring something to drink and helping him get his shoes on. Of course the shopping too, which is something we shared.

He has to go to our family doctor every day now to have them change the bandage every day for the first few days now. It’s a fairly small cut, but deep enough to take a bit longer to fully close and heal. It’s too small for stitches even.

It must really seem like we are one constantly in trouble with health stuff. This year is really very strange. Starting with both of us getting the actual influenza, then my Dad’s neck nerve started acting up, which also sends pain through his arm. Then I worried about Murlis eye, which just turned out to be a stubborn fur hair that bothered her so much and everything was fine as soon as her tears cleaned that hair out. Then I got my bout of the shingles and needed a week until I was finally awake enough to be online again lol. Now this happened.

Aside from my chronic pain and migraines, we are usually never having anything going on. We go years without any illness or accidents like cuts and bruises from falling are even more rare. I think I had my last accident as a child. Most years I don’t even get a runny nose during the flu and cold season. So I have no idea what’s with our luck right now…

Regarding my migraines, I really had quite the good phase for a while. But I have had migraines every day now for 3 days. Usually one starts in the early afternoon or at noon. But I am able to get rid of them fairly quickly thanks to the Triptan I’m prescribed. As the ones who know me for a bit will know, they cause me to be really sleepy and tired for the rest of the day. That’s the thing that keeps me from things. But without the Triptan, I’d be in agony. But tiredness doesn’t hurt, so I’m doing that exchange gladly😊

I feel really quite bad for all of you sweet friends, because it takes me so long to respond and find the time to visit your blogs, and chat with my instagram and twitter furends. That and posting things myself is something I look forward to so much every time. So it’s sad when I can’t make it. Especially because I’m so happy to have met and befriended such kind and sweet people and their kitties 💕 Murli loves to hang out on my desk every day, or when I hang out on the couch or bed with my iPad… She sits right next to me, or on me, and watches what’s happening on the screen😺

Now I’ll go and make something to eat for Dad. But I’ll be replying to your lovely comments as soon as I’m done with all the household chores. Hugs! And purrs from Murli to all of you!

  1. I am sorry you are having such a tough year. I hope your Dad heals quickly, that sounds painful. Murli is such a pretty girl.

    1. Aww thank you! Thats really unusual to have constantly something going on. But maybe that’s it for the year ☺️ Hope you and the cats are doing fine! Want to catch up on your lovely blog so bad! Poor Sherri-Ellen had a rough year until now as well. I will pray that this year is going to go fine for everyone from now on 💜 Just sat down in bed while Murli drinks Lactose free milk from Aldi 😸She loves it every now and then.

      I hope it’s going to heal soon too. It’s not painful thankfully, at least not on it’s own. He’s just unhappy that he can’t do his favorite thing… Which is cooking and baking.

      I am so worried also about everyone in the south of the US, with those heavy storms going on. Saw the devastation in the news where the tornados tore through. Praying that all furends and their furbabies are safe.

      Have a lovely day! Thanks for your kind words ☺️💜Purrs from Murli 😽

  2. Oh Natascha I hope your Father’s wound heals soon!! It seems accidents/illness go in cycles don’t they? I fell Friday suppertime; could not get up. Had to call the Paramedics. 2 VERY handsome & fit men came to scoop me off the floor, lol….
    When they said, “Let’s get you into your chair ma’am.” I then realized I am officially a Senior citizen, rofwl….Ma’am?? Not me!!! Say it isn’t so??? HAHAHA!
    I hope you have a Foehn/Migraine free day today.

      Sorry I reply to this comment so late. All the busy and trouble screws with my head.

      Gosh, I’m so very sorry you went through all of that. Hope you are feeling a lil better today? And I hope you are ok, and the sweet Purrince too?

      I’ve been called Ma’am too in the US a couple times!😂 It made me lol though😂😂😂
      Hugs!!! Dont worry bout it! You’re lovely!
      Thankfully, I seem to have a good run again, at least for a few days now, I didnt get one. Yay!
      But had lots of things to do all week and didnt get enough sleep either since Wednesday. Sigh.

      1. Hi Natascha & Murli: I apologize for not getting back to you or visiting your blog recently. There has been so much going on here. P SH is not 100% (bowels); dealing with ‘crazy man’ & Housing; my Best friend & her hubby back in town so spending a lot of time with them plus my Arthritis has flared up….
        I hope you have remained Migraine-free Natascha.

        1. Hey Sherri-Ellen & Siddhartha Henry💕 Please dont worry about keeping up or visiting. I really understand. You have so much going on, and are keeping up with all friends so well despite all that.
          I’m not able to keep up with everything in a timely manner either, because I’m busy all day at the moment. I can only get to everything late in the afternoon and a bit later in the evening.

          So sorry the sweet Purrince has icky bowels😿 Those vaccinations can really be quite a bit to deal with for sensitive cats.

          Also really sad to hear about your Arthritis flare up. I have seen with my Mama how bad that is. I am so sorry you have such a hard time to go through. But I’m happy you have your best friend back in town to hang out!

          Had a migraine today, but overall I have a pretty good phase at the moment!☺️

          Sending you love, and hugs, and keeping you both in my thoughts and my heart constantly. Praying for you both to feel better soon!💕

  4. Oh no Natascha and Murli, we can sympathize with the illness thing, the P.A. hardly ever gets poorly but she had the flu fur weeks and weeks, in fact she actually thought she was heading fur pneumonia. We hope your dads wound heals quickly and your migraines go away asap. We’re sending mew all oodles of healing purrs and hugs.

    Thank mew so much fur your kinds wurds on Angel’s Snowie & Humphrey’s post, mew have no idea how much it meant to us ❤️❤️❤️

    1. Thank you so much for your kind and lovely comment! Oh my, that sounds really like a rough time the P.A. had. Ugh, I had Pneumonia quite a lot in my life for some reason. It’s pawful. Really pawful.
      This years flu season was terrible in Europe and the US. Almost everypawdy we knew got it, and really bad too. Glad your P.A. didnt get Pneumonia!

      My Dads wound is looking really good by now. Its finally closed so that there is no chance of easy bleeding anymore and it’s healing just fine. Thank you!😽💕💕💕

      The migraines are a little less at the moment (which means not more than 1 migraine every week). I have sometimes even better phases where I go without one for a month. Just one a week or less is pretty good for me☺️ All the prayers and well wishes from so many furends helped!💕💕💕

      Awww, my and Murlis heart goes out to you and the P.A.💕 We really feel with you & think about Angel Snowie & Humphrey and send lots of love❤️️❤️️❤️️ Hugs & Purrs, Natascha & Murli🐱

Dads hand is healing nicely, Murli is purrfectly fine☺️😸 I’m just busy till the late afternoon doing chores and errands, and packing up my stuff from my friends storage.

      Awwww! So sorry about the teethie problems. Everything wrong with theeth feels pawful. I can relate to that really well. Murli and I send purrs and paw hugs and lots of love to you two sweeties and Mommy❤️️❤️️❤️️

  6. Hi Natascha I appreciate your patience. I am so stressed out I can barely get anything done. Today I am in a foul mood (yes even I have THOSE sort of days). Siddhartha Henry is being very bossy & I had to send him to bed. The Rabies shot has really affected his bowels & behaviour. With all the aggro with the tenant here my bowels are also a mess. I just want to run away. I am glad you are relatively well. looks like you are gathering more followers….I am so HAPPY about that!

    1. Oh my, I’m so very sorry you are going through all that. It’s just so unfair.
      No worries, everyone has those days! Of course, that kind of upset and stress you are going through is severe and therefore impacts your body severely as well.

      Aww poor lil Purrince! I’m so sorry his system is totally screwed up from that rabies shot! I hope his poor lil body will process it all soon and his system will calm down again.
      It’s not him, it’s just his system now that takes over his mind and emotions, but you know that. You both will get back to normal. He probably also feels your upset, and that has an influence on his emotions in addition.
      I always notice how Murli reacts to my emotions, even if I dont display much of a change outwards in behavior or anything. But she picks up on it. Especially when my anxiety is really high, or I’m stressed out, she’ll react to it instantly. Then she is on edge too, and she behaves as if she’s worried and she’ll be easily scared and jumpy.

      Oh my goodness, yes! It’s wonderful! We got some really sweet followers! Makes me happy too!

      Meeeow! Meeeeow ma furend Siddhartha Henry! Me so sorry fur all u & LadyMum goez tru! Mum & me so worried bout u two. We feelz like we wants to be dere wif u & stay wif u until u feels better & da crazy man iz gone.

Hope your luck changes for the better I also find it difficult to keep up as my 19 year old son has been in hospital since Christmas and I visit every day as he is seriously ill if it wasn’t for coming home to my fur boy Spike I don’t know what I would do.So im not ignoring anyone just get so drained….Murli is looking gorgeous as ever and hope dad gets well soon.Bless you all.x🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾😻💜

    1. Thank you! I hope so as well. And I think it looks good for now, as nothing else came up yet.

      Oh I’m so sorry your son is so ill! I certainly understand how drained one gets from having a loved one being seriously ill. It’s just the constant worry and sadness, and it doesn’t let up when those illnesses go for a very long time. I feel with you.

      Don’t worry, I know you’re not ignoring. I know I feel bad as well when my health problems and other stuff keep me from replying and visiting everyone. Cats are amazing in how they help you feel better a bit. They help you get through things, just because they are there. I’m glad you have your beautiful boy Spike!

      Thank you, my Dads hand is healing well. Wont be long anymore and he wont need the bandage anymore.

      Bless you and Spike! Sending love& hugs from Murli and me! 💕💕💕

  8. I am beyond stressed out here Natascha. I am so worn out & fed up with people here. Now I have a 30-something girl arguing with me that she can walk her 60 lb MUZZLED dog all over MY lawn! Her dog scared the crap out of P SH today & he had been so upset. I left a voice mail with a complaint to Housing. I am at my breaking point…..sadly. Sherri-Ellen

    Mee-you Murli wee sure have wonderful Mumma’ss! an throwin uppy an dye-arrhea at thee same time??? EEWWW you poor kittygurl. Lady Natascha iss thee bestest Mumma.

    1. Oh no! Oh just no no no, you poor friend & furend! What’s wrong with people? Geez, where did that obnoxious girl come from suddenly? I am terribly sorry for that unbelievable stress you and Siddhartha Henry have to endure right now.
      I’m just praying that housing is doing something about that guy and also about that girl.
      I wish u could move places, but I know how hard that is. Almost impossible to find something that isn’t expensive.
      I wish we would not live so far apart, as I wish we could be there for you and the littul Purrince.

      Why does it seem that some people with dogs get more and more aggressive with where they walk their dogs? I noticed that some people are increasingly obnoxious like that.

      Murli and I send you lots of love and hugs and purrs!

      Meew sweet Siddhartha Henry! We sure doez! Me so glad fur u & I havin our ameowzing Mummas!
      Mew mew mew! Eewww iz rite! Iz wuz dat bad when me waz a kitten & within da 1st year of ma life. I waz no constantlee dat sik, but it happened again and again & Mum continued to look and search fur foodz me wud tolerate. Her cleaned me every time dat happened & made sure me gotted enuf liquid & medz from da Vet.

      How iz ur poor bowelz doin ma furend? Me hope iz gettin a lil better again? All da upset reely messes wif da bowelz in addition to da rabbitz shot. Me & Mum so worried bout u sweeties! Wez thinkin lots bout u both & hopin thingz getz better.

      1. The 30-something girl lived in the neighboring High Rise & caused so much trouble there she was transferred over here. She moved in end of January. Kept a low profile til this weekend. Today she saw me & refused to look at me or speak to me; which suits me fine. As long as she keeps her dog OFF the grass & my patio. I will not take any of her crappola or ‘crazy man’s’ either. DONE! You know, Natascha I have wondered the same thing! it is always people with 60+ lb dogs (not the little ones) who cause all the aggro. Plus over here 30-somethings think they are entitled to do what they want when they want. They have little respect for the Elders. I am old enough to be her Mother. (Wonder how she treats her actual Mom?) Anyway, we have been dog-free today :)
