Wait! It's Still Christmas Time!

We are still together! And we are not happy missing all of you, but we do miss you. It has been exhausting trying to get Mommy to get better. Especially with Management around here hounding us every other day. If it isn't the bug spraying or the bedbug spraying or announcements about snow removal or remembering to keep your windows closed (as if we wanted 32 below zero winter in our homes), it is announcements about food trucks bringing fresh veggies (well, maybe not so fresh)  and remembering to lock your doors and hey we're still working on the outside of the building, sorry it's still so noisy, or watch for the wind when you use the outside doors or all the elevators are being worked on today or the water will be turned off til 4 or.... Enough! The announcements thingies in your apartments were for things like fires and the apocalypse coming!
And if you are already awake and up you have to hurry into the bedroom so you can hear the announcements. Yup. One speaker. And the outside noise? We have heard it for several months already!
Anyway, Mommy has been in the hospital a couple times. She has had several infections, lost a bunch of weight (really fast, which isn't good), had to delay her eye appointments (and is having problems with her eyes, too) and the surgery on her leg can't be done with all the infections and did I mention she had a concussion? The bills are mounting up, the building is just waiting to file an eviction (we already called a lawyer about that), Mommy has had something called OT and PT which helps, and we signed up for Meals on Wheels.
Those last items mentioned are good ones. The OT and PT are helping her balance. And the meals? Are they good?  Yes!!!! Even I get to taste the sauce or gravies (yes, no onions!) and we had some Delicious pudding the other day. Mommy says she  even likes the turkey meat loaf (with onions, darn it). She is eating healthy! Just like me!~
When she does get out it is only to the hospital or the doctor.  No eating out unless she is at the clinic. This week when she went they had butternut squash ravioli and veggies and then they gave her a free banana! Told you we eat healthy!
I spend a lot of my evening and night by her. She has been a little kitty cat. I keep telling her sleep is a good thing. And she's doing a lot of it, too.
Christmas, she loves Christmas. We don't have presents this year or anything, but at least she's feeling a little better. That's my present.
We'll try to look in for Christmas. If we don't, send good thoughts, and know that you all are in our hearts and prayers and we send lots of blessings for all!
Love ya,
Nurse Quinn

Wishing you a beautiful Christmas. What matters is kitty love! Sorry for all of the hardships you have endured. Husband and I aren't exchanging gifts this year....can't afford it. 2016 hasn't been so great to many of us. Here's to much better days ahead in 2017! catchatwithcarenandcody

Oh, Quinn, we wish we could bundle you and your mama up and take you out to dinner and to see the Christmas lights and put presents under the tree for you. We're guessing you don't have a tree. We don't either, but we have each other. We're so glad you two have each other through these hard times. We hope that somehow you will be blessed with a happy Christmas and that 2017 will be a MUCH healthier, happier and prosperous year for you. Hugs from all of us!
