It’s been an incredible weekend… and it’s only Saturday night!

1. [ profile] lurkitty spent much of the weekend with us.
2. I was able to spend quality time with [ profile] naudiz and [ profile] pjack.
3. I had Mom over on and off all week helping us stuff and mail business plans for She was a huge help.

1. After returning from Australia and finding Morgana even more tired and lethargic than before I left, I set her upon a new diet path. I have been cooking her and Aldina special meat stews every night for supper filled with multi-vitamin gravy, meat, fresh veggies and herb to help her in her elder years. I am weaning her slowly off medication. She’s lost a ton of water retention and swelling and her arthritis pain is minimal. I saw her dance this morning on her hind legs. She hasn’t been able to do that for at least two years. I almost cried on the spot and I’m beginning to tear just thinking about how happy I am for her. She’s like a puppy again and I am overjoyed. If anyone wants my secret recipe, let me know. It took me a few months to iron it out, but I’m obviously on the right track.
2. Inspired by Gana’s improvement, I took a good long look at my multivitamin. I realized that the 2 years I spent on the prenatal vitamin were amazing. I wasn’t sick once. Since I’ve been back on a regular vitamin, I’ve been sick once a month for the past 4 months. I’m tired and prone to depression. This isn’t cool. Last weekend I was recommended a new vitamin which I tried and I feel great about. I’m looking forward to increased energy and better health.
3. My Mom’s health is less than perfect but she doesn’t respond well to our begging her (or any other methods of persuasion or teaching) to take better vitamins and eat better food. Tonight, SHE AGREED TO TRY A REAL VITAMIN! We went to the Barker’s house for dinner and took Mom to meet them. Their friend Rick the Pharmacist stopped by and spoke to Mom. He looked at the vitamins and reassured her they were excellent and would work well with her existing prescriptions.

I’m beside myself with joy! It’s been incredible! There have been a dozen more smaller things that have gone so incredibly right the past few days, but they pale in comparison. I’m floating! I really hope these vitamins work wonders on Mom. I miss the spitfire she used to be when I was little. I haven’t seen her feeling really good, well, ever. I want her to be happy and in minimal pain.

I’m sending beautiful thoughts to all of you for all the reasons you need them. It’s a magical night and everyone’s dreams will be answered.

[ profile] lurkitty will have an amazing job and more love than she can handle.
[ profile] naudiz is going to kick serious butt in so many ways even The Great Australian Folke Hero won’t be able to keep track.
[ profile] kittekaat is going to find her dream home and all the happiness she deserves.
[ profile] dreadygoddess will have no worries about anything once we find some time together.
[ profile] onewhohugstrees and her son will be well in short order.
[ profile] silverblue will have her perfect job soon and a house in a year.
[ profile] biomekanic will find his perfect job and [ profile] sbloss will be happy and healthy.
[ profile] cmdr_zoom will find the perfect job for a hobbit and still be able to game.

If I’ve missed anything, it isn’t going unaddressed in my heart. EVERYONE gets cookies tonight! We all win.
I took Gana into the bathroom to cut off all the mats and snarls around the abrasion areas of skin and apply tea tree oil this afternoon. During this process, I also trimmed her feet hair. As the grooming progressed, I noticed a quantity of red, red blood on my white countertop. Upon further investigation, it was all over her legs and my left hand. I panicked. I began to guiltily search for the place I must have slipped and cut her. She never complains, but I didn’t even feel myself slip. Gah! Blood everywhere! I searched and searched, and more blood kept appearing, but no cut. Mom was trying to hold her so I could search better, but no cut.


Because I had cut my own hand, not Gana.

I’m that much of a freak that I don’t feel the scissors bite into my own flesh and spend 7 minutes examining Morgana for the source, instead.

What does that say about me? *rolls eyes*
