This past week has included some good and some not so good situations. I'll deal with the negatives first.
Doug had a trip to Toowoomba for a difficult wisdom tooth extraction. He arrived home two days later with a very painful, swollen face, as well as bruising to his neck. One week later and he's feeling a lot better but is still eating a liquid diet. He is longing for a salad!
Last week our 17 1/2 year old Siamese cat came down with a serious bladder and kidney infection. She got very sick very quickly.

Katie ended up in their animal hospital for three days, but thankfully there was no kidney damage and she was given a clean bill of health. Apparently she was very talkative, which of course, is typical of Siamese. She was very pleased to to get home to all her various sun porches and routines. She is the most affectionate and loving animal friend we've ever had.
