Over the last 2 weeks the Cats, and I, have all made some progress, and the month of August gets off to a grand start, in a very special way.
I've been walking, a lot, on the braced ankle, mostly with it at a right angle, due to stiffness.
At my most recent appointment xrays showed there are still areas of healing to take care of, and I must still wear the brace for at least the next 2 months.
Since I can't afford to go to Physical Therapy, due to not having health insurrance (I've applied for MSI, but won't know if I've been approved for a few weeks yet), the Doc gave me 3 stretching exercises I can do on my own at home.
Elvira has had to lose a little weight, and Nikita has some unknown issues that have led to his losing 3 lbs., and needing to gain it back, and that has us all concerned.
Several things have happened, over at Meowsings, the last couple weeks, that have made not being able to attend Blog Paws easier to accept.
Elvira did the honors for the 500th post: 500th: The Elvira Factor #6 - Wiggle Your Toes if You are not Declawed
I went to Los Angeles for a very special evening: Meow Mingle Meeting of the Feline Bloggers Humans Purrfectly Delightful!
The really HUGE news, though is this:
I came home from the Meow Mingle to find an e-mail, from a sponsor of this event, offering me a ticket to the show, and a ticket to the related Red Carpet event and, needless to say, I accepted. :-D
With a week to go I've went & got a new pair of dress shoes, & got something else to spruce up my outfit for the event, something that will remain a State Secret until the weekend.
I also have done something else in preparation, and have another thing in mind that I will learn more about on Monday, both State Secrets as well. :-D
The future still has a lot of uncertainty, but things are happening that allow me to keep my spirits up, and a positive outlook.
