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!
