yet again

Just a quick update. Mommy is running a fever and yesterday we had a visit from our lovely (handsome) paramedics  . Mommy had collapsed and they were concerned about her heart. She didn't want to go to the hospital, but promised to see her cardiologist at the first opportunity, which will be tomorrow.
Very serious.
Send good healing thoughts.

Life at Our House

Hi! Miss us? Well, we have not had a fun time. I thought we better let you know what has been up:
The 11th Mommy went in for her surgery.  It went fairly quickly, and they said she could go home that afternoon.  She felt sooooo lousy!  When she finally got home she didn't even make it through the lobby before she threw up.  She threw up a few more times at home. She was extremely weak, and at one point, going to the kitchen for a glass of water she lost it, collapsed, had to call paramedics again. They wanted her to go back to the hospital but she refused.  The good thing is, not after three days but after 7 she finally stopped peeing blood. No doubt because she has been faithfully flushing her urinary tract with lots of ice water (I mean huge glasses of it every day!). But her appetite is not very good still. Nobody warned her about that. 
So I have been snuggling with her, and watching her and being nursie a lot.  She seems to like it when I make biscuits on her, so I have been making that part of my daily take care of mom routine.
Oh, yeah. I've caught up on all three seasons of Dr. Jeff, Rocky Mountain Vet! Awesome!! And, go, Dr. Pol!
Gorilla glue is dangerous.
Akil the fugitive hunter is not for us.
Send green papers??
Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. We couldn't have done this without you!
love ya,

News

😼 Hope you all had a safe 4th.  We did.  There were more fireworks closer this time, but being with my Mommy makes me not mind them.
Mommy had another appointment about her surgery, and it is going to be on next Tuesday early in the morning. So think good thoughts then, okay?  She will be able to go home the same day.
Still no cell phone, so no way for Mommy to make long distance phone calls for free.
That's the news update.
Love ya,
Quinnie

short update

Another trip to the ER for Mommy last week. She is getting closer to her operation, though. It's supposed to be on July 11, now.
She lost her cell phone on the way home from the hospital she thinks, only it costs to get another one. And it is a free government phone. But replacements cost.
She is so far behind in bills she's worried a lot. Can anyone help?
I have been a good girl, of course.
Jackson Galaxy had a cute black and white tuxie on the last show.❥
love ya,
Praying for ya,
Quinnie

Still here.

We have been very quiet because Mommy hasn't been feeling well.  She has to get healthier to have surgery, so we are working on that. I check on her all the time, too. And she is doing better. She really doesn't want to do anything much of the time, though. She has been in the hospital again, and just Thursday saw her doctor.
Oh, about that, she got on a crazy ride home Thursday.  She was with a couple other riders and went  to the southwestern part of the twin cities on the way (we are northeasters). Normally this would be kind of an adventure for her. Lots of rural areas, lovely houses. Pretty.  But it was over 80 degrees and they had no air conditioning. Oooh, she was tired when she finally got home!
There was one bright light on this trip. There, on the side of one of the roads, was a deer! How cute!!
No camera on hand, though.
It is really hot this weekend, but our little a/c unit is taking care of us. May you all have ways of staying cool.
We pray for everyone every day and hope you are praying for us.
Mommy's tired again.
Love ya,
Quinnie

please if anyone can help, we are short money right now, and we get $35 overdraft fees. We get our money on the 21st.

Quinnie has an announcement

HI! We have been lost for a while, huh? Well, Mommy had some emergency surgery and then wasn't really feeling okay. It was for her kidneys and bladder.
She needs more surgery and hasn't been feeling good.  Throw in having to go through another review AND legal stuff.  She just wasn't feeling good and oh, yes, throw in a major tooth problem and a horrible high temp. And she had to run some errands down in the nasty road construction down town. The building her bank is in, for example, is entirely cut off!
She WENTto a pre-op for another surgery for the same problem only they turned her down, saying she wasn't healthy enough to make it through the surgery.
She mostly has been curling up and sleeping through the pain.
PLEASE SEND PRAYERS.
And maybe a replacement for our sick Dell mousie?
We might not be posting a lot, due to Mommy's being really ill.
I have even given her lots of bisquits to help... and you know I don't do those a lot!
Love 'ya!

Saturday, as Mommy's Day approaches

πŸ˜‰What a week! We are sooooo in need of nappy time.  I actually---oh, remember I got a nice little cat tree (not too tall, I like being a jungle kitty!) from sweet friends some time ago? Well, I finally decided the little cubby hole on the bottom was a nice comfy place to curl up and be right by mommy in the living room. So I have a new comfy corner and if mommy doesn't see me sometimes, I can nap and she can't bug me but we can still be close.
We are going to have to adjust our budget yet again, because we have our air conditioner summer charges coming up. Minnesota DOES get hot in summer.
We have groceries coming today. And Chewy on Monday. Now we are very poor again.
 We have a new roach inspection Wednesday with that nasty bug guy. But we spent time with our cleaning friend this last Wednesday cleaning cupboards and scaring out a couple of our unfriendly bug visitors. So we consider the visit worthwhile. Scary, though. And we once again have a major inspection coming up.
Mommy finally found a comfortable and inexpensive watch! No more searching around for the time! It has a big "face" and the band is comfortable, it's a brand she's been wearing for years, And it was at Amazon. Now that took her less than half a nap to open the box it came in, adjust the time and put it on her wrist!
She accidentally dropped her flip phone and drowned it and is getting a replacement (government free phone). Well, we have it but can't use it because she doesn't know how to use a smart phone! If anyone can help, PLEASE! Seriously! Two days and counting I have been putting up with her!
Ah, windows open, cool breezes, expectations of snow fall. Spring Life in Minnesota.
Please have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
Love ya,
QUINNIE and Carol
can someone help me figure out how to get a pressie for Mommy's Day? I would love to get her something special.
Someone to help her make her Smart Phone dumb enough to handle???? That'd work!!

tgif?

Mommy is losing her hair. Really. There is a medical term for it caused by stress, but I can't remember it. Alopecia??
First, things don't get delivered by our postman. Or the boxes look like someone has been playing soccer with them. Wearing steel toed shoes.
 They left an email that an attempt was made the 12th and no one was here. Roll Call on the 12th: Mommy? Here. Karen? Here! They have so many complaints at the local USPO!Who wasn't here? Quinnie? No I was Here.  (A lot of them are important like our medical supplies or new checks for mom. Or statements for rent, or the folic acid we were advised to start on because my mommy's hair is falling out. And they think of lots of stuff to add all the time to our rules here.
Oh, and then A*l screwed up mom's account which means we didn't pay the rent yet. And so did F*******t. They have us with payments for 4 months! And won't give any back. We weren't 4months past due. It was our error. But because they got such a big payment they are waiting a long time to return it.
Speaking of rules, they added more stuff to living here that Mommy can't possibly do. Google is doing it's part making us sign in to blogger and some other accounts. And Meals on Wheels forgot to give us our lunch on Wednesday. But the lady apologized very nicely and before we could ask for credit, she suggested it. That was an excellent  save, mommy said.
And now it's the week end.  Thank you God for giving Mommy the patience to survive this week. Amen.
It was Black Friday, yesterday. Thank you Jesus for all your help on the world's behalf. We certainly need it!
 QUINNIE AND CAROL
LOVE YA.

We have been having technical problems this week so we apologize for not being here. We were fine, so don't worry there.  But it was computer and electrical Stuff.
WE MISSED YOU! 

WE ARE BACK.

 SORT OF.

YOU KNOW MOM!

PS. Problems included the whole computer set-up and my floor lamp and one of my land phones. Eek! Karen came over Wednesday and helped figure everything out. I still don't know what was wrong, but Karen solved the problem. Now, anyone whose phone number I had I don't anymore. Except for ones that are on my cell. And that was mostly for Metro rides and "family" members. You know, the "family" who bitched me out for being in the hospital a while back and offered no sympathy at all.
Thank you all of you who are clearly better family than I have ever had. Although any of your phone numbers I had have disappeared. Feel free to call and give me your numbers again.  I miss YOUR phone calls! We love you.
