Crazy Cats

My Snookzie, who is almost one year old, is a very beautiful cat. Altho' he is probably the largest cat I have had, he is still light weight. Sophie Rose, Kristen's cat, is smaller but very much overweight. Hard to believe the way the two of them chase through the house. Their favorite time to chase is when we are going bed. We are disappointed that neither is a lap cat, I have told them I have considered the addition of a third cat or a dog, but they don't seem to take me serious.
Dwight continues much the same. He is continually tired and takes allot of naps, although on dialysis days he doesn't sleep as well at night, waking often. All the infections have affected his mind, it takes him longer to think things through and respond in conversation. Very frustrating for myself and the children, not the same as he was two years ago before this started. He seems to have lost more weight.
A couple of minor surgeries have been suggest to reduce the urinary tract infections, he has agreed to one of them, now just trying to getting it set up. The urogolist won't see he because we have an outstanding balance. I was unaware of it and told them it is kinda hard to pay a bill when you don't send me one. Still waiting to receive it.
Sam and his girlfriend where down over the weekend and spend time with Dwight. It is hard to believe that in one month Sam will be heading out on the Appalaciation Trail. We will be keeping up with him on his trail blog.
I am still looking for winter and have asked the Lord for a snowfall of at least a foot.....

Wednesday, February 8, 2012


What a boring winter we are having. Can not believe it is February and we haven't had any more than a half of snow at a time. I know not to expect snow belt snow in central Ohio, but snow shovel is getting lonely. Just one good snow of a foot or more would be more than welcome.

Dwight went back to Mill Run Wednesday evening(Feb 1). They did dialysis in the hospital on Wednesday and we made sure the nursing home had him scheduled for Thursday. They didn't get an actual diagnosis of the newest bug until Friday, but in time to order it for Friday night's RX delivery to the nursing home so he could get started on a new antibiotic. It was ordered and delivered but the nurse on his hall didn't give it to him, said it wasn't in the delivery. Don't understand how you can get a drug delivery and not take care of it. It all has to be checked in and properly stored in the locked supply room. They did get him started Saturday night, it does to seem to be working. Dwight doesn't seem as cloudy in his thinking, he did sleep through most of the Super Bowl. (But they did hear my cheering out in the hall!!!)

Dwight does seem some weaker, and I do believe he has lost more weight.
Most of his blood work looks pretty good for a guy on dialysis.

Dwight is very thankful for his Kindle, it is light weight and with the large font setting it makes it very easy for him to continue his Bible reading and study. He spends a good amount of time praying for his family and for other prayer needs.

Can't say he is happy about the snow, or the cold. But he is happy that I am happy with our half inch of white fluff. It is so pretty.
