FROM QUINNIE

Hi. Mommy is still sick. We see a "pt" guy and a lady "ot" and people from "the building" who come in and bitch at us constantly about our cluttered apartment (why do we have more than one towel and one book? why do we need more than one kitchen chair?  why do we need more than 3 changes of clothes?) O, not the "ot" and "pt" peoples They are helping Mommy physically. But the manager and "caseworker" for the building ? Bitch. Our actual "Caseworker"? she insists she can only meets with us in the "community room" and doesn't really concern herself with what we actually need help with immediately. hey, this time Mommy got the lady's comments (rules) in writing and cancelled her period. Mommy IS not stupid. the company said she was on her way to see us (I HAVE NEVER EVEN SEEN HER) and we said no WE WOULD NOT TALK TO HER. SHE HAS NEVER EVEN BEEN IN OUR HOME AND WE HAVE TO SEE HER IN A PUBLIC ROOM ( her rules). We talked to our senior services from our clinic and legal aid and got on meals on wheels. Now they have been a little screwy, but we are new to them and sometimes things get a little screwy when they are new.we  understand. They are very pleasant and the problems were fixed in a day.  And their food is better than the assisted living people get in the building!  we had a sample of that a few months ago. Mouses! Blaaaakkkk!
Now wheels on meals are not free, but I think if I can get nutritious food Mommy should too. If we could move out of here we would be happier, too. If we could get out of this nasty neighborhood where sirens and stabbing go on every day we would maybe feel a little safer. Someone want to set up a fund?
Mommy has a couple of surgeries coming up and we need some help.
Oops. gotta scoot. Mommy doesn't know about this post, so shhhhh.
love ya,
QUINNIE

More bad stuff

Yes, we know. We have been missing again. We missed my gotcha day! But I have been very very busy with Mommy, so I really don't mind.
She had to go into the hospital last Friday with some major infections and the medicines they gave her she had a bad reaction to. I have spent a lot of time glued tightly to her side or sitting on the top of the pillow since she's home. I don't normally do that a lot, and never as tightly! I was! She's better, but she doesn't want to eat because of the meds (help, send pizza!--actually send creamy tomato microwave soup, which she says she's craving). I don't know about her doctors, but the paramedics are cute!
Anyway, while Mommy gets better we won't be on here a lot.
Send prayers, pizza (or some creamy tomato microwave soup)!
Mommy said I am being very sweet and loving to her.

I vote for the pizza ;)

Gotcha is coming!

MY   gotcha day is November 9th! I've had Mommy for 4 years.  That makes me around 5 years old!
And yes, brandi still comes and visits. She says to say hi to everfuryone.
Thank you to all who have been stopping by to read and comment through the years. More than 10! We all love you. And your own OTRB loved ones are happy and playing like you wouldn't believe. No sickies, only happy memories.  Just waiting for that joyous day when they all can be with you.
Quinnie and brandi and Mommy Carol of course.
You all are pretty cool family!

Not the good kind of excitement

Oh dear, oh dear. My mommy disappeared  and left me all alone. No food, no water. She left me! I was starving and so thirsty I almost didn't make it!
Not to worry, friends. She stayed over night at the people's hospital. She's already home! Seems she had some infections to clear up, including a kidney one. Now those are not fun.  They took lots of blood and gave her some IVs and gave her some pills to take at home. She had to promise to make an appointment with her vet in a week to check if the infections are gone.
Such drama around here! Anyway, once she was all settled she made sure I had food and water and scritchies. And my mommy was HOME. Including hospital smells.
{I really was gone overnight and  she had food and water, just no scritches. Is she a drama queen or what?-- Mommy}
Well, that's my exiting weekend so far. She slept like a good girl for several hours, made a little dinner and went back to bed. Well, at least she's home and I got some scritchies! And more crunchies and fresh water. I think I will get to watch over her this afternoon while she take a nap.
She BETTER take a nap. We all know sleep is a very good healer!
Love ya,
QUINNIE
Ps. She had French toast there!

Wordy Wednesday


Mommy is having something called P.T. this afternoon. Or P.T.  Assessment? Whatever. Then she is going to see some peoples to learn about de-cluttering on Friday.  Then on Monday she is going to see one of her caseworkers (a new one. She hasn't made up her mind whether she likes this one yet). Then it's a surgery consult, two more doctor pointments  and surgery. Hopefully it will be a minor surgery. We will let you know more as soon as we know.  We went downstairs for a couple of hours Tuesday. Our lovely manager said I could only be in the community room in my PTU on the floor.  Mouses! Really hard to get a good view of the street and all the cars and trucks and busses from the floor. NOT fair.
The maintenance guy she doesn't like was back Tuesday, insults and all. We do not like him. He is rude. At least this time he didn't say anything about Mommy having too much bread because she hid it in the fridge!
Hope you all had a safe Halloween and the ghosties and goblins were only nice ones!
love ya,
QUINNIE MAKAYLA
p.s.
Remember, only Mommies get the chocolate from your trick or treat bags!

October 26, 2016

Mommy has fallen again (once on Saturday and once on Monday). She has a big bruise on her chin and several little bruises. The one on her chin looks like one of those plums that Mommy likes. Deep purple. So we haven't really been around for a few days. She hurt her shoulder and bruised the inside of her mouth. Mommy has a pointment with the doctor to check out why she still has a headache. Mommy is getting pretty disgusted with Medicare. They only grant people who can't walk the wheelchairs. If you fall constantly, well, that's what walkers are for.  This makes no sense to her, but is the way it is.  She can't afford to buy one, and that's the end  of that. It makes her fearful of leaving our home, and that is not good for anybody but me (scritchies and long brushies).
So that is why we haven't been doing Halloween pictures like we said we would. We're sorry. Here's a couple:






That's almost all we have. So we have the rest of the week covered. Oh and the little kitten on the pumpkin is one of our all time favorites (the ewok is cute too).
Now just in case you miss me, here is one of me. Invisible costume!
love ya all,
Quinn

Royalty, if you please

 
Well, today we have Royalty visiting. Lovely costume, isn't it?

Bow to your King, Peasant!
 
 
Halloween can be elegant. Not everybody likes scary!
 

Peace and love,
Quinn

Wordy Wednesday

Hello! Mommy is finally getting updated on some things on the puter. Monday we had a guest and yesterday we had Maintenance come. They did the bug stuff, you know, spraying and stuff, and something amazingly nice (for once!!!). They noticed a tear in our bedbug defenders (they keep bedbugs out of your bedding) and REPLACED THEM! Not only that, they made sure the bed was properly on the frame and threw the packaging in the garbage and took away the old defenders! Now, they didn't remake the bed, but getting those bedbug covers on the mattress and box springs was really hard for Mommy when she got the new bed (yes, okay it's used). What a blessing! How nice!! Hope they keep this maintenance guy!!
We, of course, had to leave (that PTU again) for a couple of hours, so we had a little meeting downstairs and spent the rest of the time in the community room. I was fascinated with all the cars and trucks and busses going by, so that occupied my time very nicely. Remember we live on the 16th floor and I usually only get to see very small cars, trucks, and  busses from above on the other side of the building. It was exciting to see them at their level. Mommy said I did very well in the meeting and was very good in the community room, but the way down in the elevator I was LOUD. I'm working on it. The way up again I was very good, and went we came to our floor I was stretching my neck and sniffing cause we were almost home.
Mommy has several errands to run tomorrow (pharmacy and other boring stuff), so she'll be gone most of the day.
So there you have our update. Mommy's leg is still a little painful, but much better. I have mysteriously have had some hairballs lately, but Mommy thinks it's because I now get Furminated every day because my furs are preparing for winter. And oh yes, she complained to the cable company about the price hike for service and got them to take money OFF our bill. Now we can pay less than before! Mommy says, "whoooo who".
Please have a good day today. And my gotcha day is coming up! But before that, Halloween!

Love ya, lots of prayers,
QUINNIE MAKAYLA
