This. Morning, about 7 AM, I could feel something strange around me. I. Cautiously opened me eyes to see this goober staring at me and purring as loud as possible!!
She now thinks my tablet is hers. I keep her claws cut, and have down loaded a game for cats to play where she chases around a mouse which squeaks when she hits it with her paw. She gets soooo excited she actually has the tablet between her paws so can flip it over and look for the. Mousey under Meath the tablet!! She is also trying to. BITE them. I simply die of laughter watching her. Lol. Too funny!!
This app is for most operating systems, it's called. "Gizzys friend". Now the mouse will continue to squeak unless u turn off phone/ tablet etc, than turn it back on. . How easy. Izzy. INSISTS on playing with my tablet first thing in the. AM. That also cracks me up!! She's worse than a child!!
TY for reading about my ever so foolish kitty.

Well as most of us know,,, today I was to get OFF FINALLY my cast !! WOOHOOO !!!
In came the Dr after X Rays were taken. Its both GOOD and NOT good news. I am NOT healed well,,,, but also the cast is making my foot very, very sore. So today this is my result !
YES !! the CAST IS OFF !!!!! YEAH !!!
BUT !! The fusion is NOT healed,,, it was ONLY taken off since it was making holes in my feet,, and they are almost healed, but it had today made my foot a CHERRY RED. NOT good. Its approx between 1/2 and 3/4 healed,,, right inbetween that,, so you can see I have a ways to go !
I was SOOO EXCITED LOL I forgot to find out if I can go swimming (I DO DOUBT this,,, for it's still Very easy to break ! but, I'll ask,,, with that also goes my PRECIOUS bath !! I have now some neat stuff to make natural bubbles,, and have multi colored tea lights (Batery operated) to spread around the tub,, and some nice SMELLY STUFF to put into the air,,, AHHHH A NEAT bath,, while of course playing my FAVORITE music !! Could life be much better as a REWARD for ALL I've been thru, of 4 1/2 months in a cast??? (First was for the surg,,, 12 weeks SHOULD of been in the cast, but as I neared the 12 weeks,,, i UGHERS Feel and rebroke it ! So that added in 6 more weeks !)
I am now to walk with stiff shoes on (THANKFULLY I DO have a neat pair) and use the crutches,, am NOT at ALL to go barefoot (MY FAVORITE THING to do !), but at LEAST I CAN WALK a TINY BIT for now. I HAD planned on doing 3 ,, 10 mins walks tomorrow, but of course I am NOT healted enough for that,, and that's FINE eventually I WILL Be.
I WAS ALSO SOOO HOPING I'd NOT have to see Dr P for another 6 months,, when the screws are due to come out,, but instead I need him again next month. MAN OH MAN ,,, K, my BFF who I am so worried about,, deserves a REWARD for ALWAYS taking me to these appts. LOL We've been there maybe 14 times,, since this has started, and yet,, she still has NO CLUE how to get there,,, got us LOST leaving the parking lot. LOL SILLY GAL !!!

One of my dearest friends since childhood,,, has been very depressed most of her life. She "says" now "I am not" I tend to disagree. She sees one emotion at a time,,,, whereas most of us swing from one to another. We 've been friends since we were in the 7th grade,,,, I was 12,,, she was 11. She was over weight then,,,, I was drop dead skinny. we both ate tas much, but it piled pped on her,, not me.
Well until I was in early 40s or was it my late 30s? I've forgotten tonight , i am tired. She was SO HAPPY I was gaining !! She actually said "NOW YOU KNOW HOW I FEEL" !!! someone we barely knew,,,said at that point to me "HI K,,,," I responded with "No, I am Diane" "Oh well you both look exactly alike". That and one of my Dr's showing me Mr Bones,, how my fat was affecting my back,,, both of those around the same time,,,, discusted me,, I KNEW I was big 288,,,, over twice of my normal weight,, and soon if I hadn't of taken action it would of been 3 x's ! But I DID take action. my BFF K,, (For I really have 4 BFFs,, including MaryAnnGi,,,, on this site,,, who we've met in person,,, and will of course again,,, we live state by state) did NOT take action.
K,,, has a D,,,,, when she was very small,,,, I had wanted by then,,, I was almost old enough too,, a GD !! Of course that was not possible,,,, so I talked to her D,,, and we were very close,,, we agreed,, K approved,, I could Adopt S as my GD ! YES was the answer from both,, esp happy was my GD !!! So since then,, though she was small,,, she began to spend as much time as possible at my place,,,,, as a tween she pretty much moved in. Stayed this way all the way up and thru. She's now though Married on her own.
When my GD was 11,, I had K over,,, I was talking to her,, about her denial to her being depressed,, which would continue for yrs (both denial and depr),,, I asked her "Do you want to die?" "Yes" "Will you do urself ,, do you have a plan" (Scared me horribly to ask that !) "I do not have plan" "Are you safe" "yes, I just do not care if I die, I want too". "You do realize you have S,,, to raise" "ur doing that" "but I AM NOT HER MOM !! I am her GRANDMOTHER,,, a Child NEEDs their MOM and not just from when they are young, but ALL thru life" ! "She has you, that's enough".
Yrs later,,,, I told her to please pick me up (by that time,,, i was on narcs for pain,, my lience was no longer any good),,, she came over "Where we going"? "I will just give you the directions, you do not know that part of that city well" So it was take a right,, aother right,, take a left,, go straight for 3 blocks,, etc,,, finally it we were pulliing into a parking lot. She asked "Where are we"? "We are at UR Therapy appoinment" "WHAT?? NO " !!!! " If you do NOT go in,, they will charge you for it was not cancelled 24 hrs in advance,, and you will have to pay cash" (LOL I know her well unless its HER IDEA,,,, NO $$$ was gonna VOLUNTARLY leave her FINGERS !LOL So in we went. She was NOT willing at first to answer ?s,,, I let the intake worker know,,, it was MY idea to drag her in,, that she was NOT happy with this, but I was scared for her. She was getting larger and larger,, and soo down. The writing was on the wall.
She did than towards the end start to answer a few ?s,,,, the intake worker was GREAT !! JUST PERFECT for being an intake worker. Looked at K,,, said "you are severely depressed,, and you would benefit from coming here,,, life can again look good". So K,,, agreed to go back.
That was 3 yrs ago. K did for a little come out of the depression,, It was GREAT,, but she did NOT change any habits. Come to find out,, she was controlling what was said,, not said,,,, she out right would "not tell the truth" about what was happening. She is also very dirty,,,, and a hoarder to the MAX !! I am scared also,, that this coming week her place will NOT pass inspection from her manager. She has filled my GD's room,, 21X 16 Ft,, with ALL Boxes floor to ceiling,, the closet which is also 16 Feet,,, is not able to be opened. I KNOW She has MICE in there,,, she "found" a bunch of babies this past summer,,, that does NOT AT ALL help her breathing,, dried feces from any animal is NOT healthy. I looked it up,, toxic. I told her,, what was her answer?? This week she went out and bought an air filer,, isntead of cleaning. The depression is back,,, she's very scared also,, cos now she says she has a hernia,,,, we ALL know a good cause of that is,, BELLY FAT,,, up into her lungs,, heart being pressed,, from the hernia,,,,, she says,,, and so she's now struggling to breathe.
A small walk from the drivers side to the rear passengar side,, putting in my knee walker (light,, I can lift with one hand),, into the car,,, to than walk back to the drivers side,, we have to now sit there for a few mins,, she's outta breathe ! A small walk into a Dr's office,, where all she's doing is walking,,,,,,, less than 20 feet,,,, she's also breatheing hard.
I know my BFF is simply dying now,, and it's from over eating. she's now around 300 to 325,,,, her BP is UP and UP ! Etc. I am saddened,, I talked to her today,,, she has no hope,,, she does not care.
