Oscar Sunday, Mindy and more

FB_IMG_1534703081788Remember how I said "happy spring" and all that last week. Just now I looked out the window and there was snow blowing sideways. Yeah it's not really going to stick but it's cold and tomorrow it's barely going to get above freezing. Brrr. It will warm up again after that but yeah. Definitely ready for some more consistent nicer weather but March is always that way and even April. You never quite know what you are doing to get, it's a mixed bag. 

Another really busy week. And only a bit over a week to go before I leave for Europe. Definitely not quite ready or prepared for that. That's for sure. 

We are also dealing with issues with our cat Mindy which has been consuming a lot of my thoughts. She is 12 year old so not super young but also not crazy old. About a week and a half ago she started acting kind of weird and off. Nothing too crazy but she was always sitting in one spot and wasn't moving much and just seemed off. Also eating less than normal and just not herself. We ended up bringing her to the vet on Tuesday and they couldn't really give a definite reason but ran blood-work and xrays. The xray showed that she is eating litter which was weird enough in itself. We finally got the blood results back Thursday night and let's just say it wasn't great. She is severely anemic which in cats apparently can have a few underlying reasons such as bone marrow cancer, kidney failure, liver disease, auto immune disease etc. So basically all the reasons are bad and not really fixable. The vet suggested trying a steroid shot to see if that would perk her up a bit, at least short term. So we brought her to the vet Friday morning. She then proceeded to sleep most of Friday but when she got up late Friday afternoon she did have a few bites to eat and some water and she has been eating a little and drinking water since then. She is still not perfect or back to her old self by all means but she is washing herself a little, eating a little, drinking a little, using her litter box, really all we can ask for. She doesn't look super uncomfortable and mostly relaxed so we'll just take it one day at a time to see how it goes. 

So yeah that's been what's been occupying my mind mostly. Other than that went to the movies to today and saw "The Lost CIty" which was a fun movie. Silly for sure but entertaining. Also watched "Being the Ricardos" on Amazon Prime yesterday and tonight we will be watching the Oscars.
