I am not to sure if I will stay awake for long, so may have to pass this over!! to mum!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mum here:  Okay Cookie, I will take pity on you, even though it I only 12"30 am -- and even though you hae been sleeping most of the day.  BTW, Cookie, thanks for letting me sleep later the last couple of mornings.  We only hae one problem in the mornings;  while I am getting my jacket and shoes on and getting the chair ready to go -- Cookie barks constantly.  (Cookie here:  that's just cos I am so glad you are getting up n=and taking me out!}  Unfortunately the people upstairs do not enjoy her "singing" and pound on the floor -- which, of course makes her bark more.!!!!!

I went to see the doctor on Friday and got a clean bill of health (thank goodness).  But because I like to run errands when I go to the doctor's office, it makes for a long day!!

I am going to have to go the Geek Squad to find out to post pictures, again

Well, this was a quickie update to let everyone up on what we are doing

Mum and I really want to thank Amber and Max da udder wienie's mum for helping my mum to FINALLY figure out how to get back to posting.  I am sure everyone thought that we had gone missing -- but for some reason mum could not get to this screen!!!!!

Things have not been toooo  great lately.  One nice thing is that I now have ANOTHER kitty sister -- Sapphire.  She looks like a Russian Blue.  She need to be spayed (as does Luna) and so the two of them walk around yowling!!!!

Also mum has been sick a couple of weeks ago.  She had to have another Botox injection in her bladder and then about a week later she started a really bad UTI.  Unfortunately she forgot that about 20 odd years ago she had a bad reaction to sulfa drugs, and they gave her an antibiotic with Sulfa!!!  Fortunately she final did remember and told the doc's office so the stopped her taking it and now she is feeling better.

I still have a bit of a limp because of my valley fever tumor in my leg, but it is not too bad.  It is still too hot for mum to take me too far during the day, but it is nice and cool when she takes me out in the mornings. 

Well, I do not want to go on whingeing so I will end now and hopefully will be able to get some pics up here next time, which should not be too long from now.

Mum has been feeling kinda stressed lately and although I have gotten her to read all the other posts, I have not been able to get her to sit and write in my blog instead of watching TV.  A lot of the stress has been because she overdrew her bank account AGAIN!!!!!  She went to the bank the other day and got them to remove some of the overdraft fees -- She  had been charged $34 for a charge of $10 and another for a charge of $15!!!!!   I was not with her (too hot for my poor little paws!!) but she dealt with the bank manager and she said that he was really nice an understanding.  She still does not have any money til the 3rd of next month, but it will help that she doesn't have such an overdraft.  She said she was s'posed to go over to Uncle Vic's yesterday -- again she said it would be too hot to take me!!!!  But she ended up not going because he called and said he had bedbugs again!!!!!  Mum did not want to chance picking up any again -- she said after all the problems she had getting rid of them (the most pressing of her stressors) she did not want to chance getting them again.  Needless to say, he was not very happy about it (she was going over cos the tech from the wheelchair place was coming over to see what was wrong twith her old wheelchair that Uncle Vic wanted to use). 

We are in the middle of our monsoon season here in  Tucson, so I have been spending a lot of time in the bathtub and closet!!!!When I am hiding in the bathtub and mum comes in to use the bathroom, I get lots of scritches!!!!  Yesterday I made a couple of poops and a pee in the living room cos we had a really bad storm!!!  Our patio got flooded the rain was so heavy!!!

Mum asked me to remind my buddies that our GoFundMe page is still active (she hopes) cos, as I have mentioned on other occasions) we are in need of money for my med and vet visits.  Also, my kitty sista Luna needs to get fixed!!!!  she seems to go into heat very often and makes the most awful noises when she does.

Well, nothing exciting has been going on here except for the storms!!!  As I said, the time that mum does go out, it has been too hot for me (except when I go out to do my bidness early in the morning).  so I guess we will end now.  I will try to get mum to post more often, and also go figure out how to post pics again

Temps here getting around 114F and sposed to go even higher!!!!  Mum takes me out before it gets too hot then I stay in air conditioned apartment for the rest of the day!!  But when I do go to the doggy park we have here, I find los of good pee mails.

BTW, it has come to our attention that word has gone around that mum goes for coffee and a muffin almost every day.  That has not happened for several years -- since mum took Cody (who has been at the rainbow bridge for almost 3 yrs now), Rajah and Sandra asnd her pup out for coffee after going to Udall Park.  Human brother and wife sent mum an e-card for Starbucks for her birthday, but we have no Starbucks close by so she does not go there very often!!!  She makes coffee at home and when she goes out during the day because it is so hat she takes flavored water with her!!!!  So, if you have not been donating to my GoFundMe page cos you think she has money to spare, I want to assure you that she doesn't because of all the moves, etc. and being in hospital fo so long!!  She has not been able to take me o the vet, even tho I am limping from my Valley Fever, cos of lack of money; also, Luna needs to be spayed cos she keeps going into heat, but, again cos of lack of money, she cannot afford it!!

Mum has to go to have some minor surgery on her eyelid tomorrow -- our neighbor Jessie is going with her.  Wish her luck

Mum wanted us to shout out to any pups who go to Udall Park in Tucson.  Some of you may remember that that is where mum met Jack and Tall Guy and she used to take Cody there all the time, but me not as much cos when I came along, her apartment complex had a nice doggy park where she used to take me.  Anyway, this mornings newspaper had a biiiiig article about the fact that there has been an outbreak of lepti (whatever it is called, but it is VERY contagious for dogs and human) there and recommending not going there.  Usually when they have a contagious outbreak they will close the park and fumigate it.  But for any Tucson pupsters whose humans have not read the article, PLEASE stay away from Udall Park.  We do not go there since moving to this apartment, and I like my new doggy park -- I have found lots of pee mails there.  I just hope that this disease does not move here.

I keep telling mum she has to post more often!!!!  I will admit tho that she has been enduring lots and lots of stress (which is her excuse for not posting).  Finally, the apartment has been cleaned up.  She had to borrow our next door neighbor's vacuum cleaner 'cos ours went missing somewhere between moves to and from storage; so did the shelves and glass doors from our china cabinet.  Mum also realized that a plastic bag that had some large items (comforters and terry cloth robes, etc) musta been put in the new storage cabinet.  One of the people that put the stuff in storage in December wants to come over on Wednesday to look in our new storage.  Mum doesn't want her to go on her own, and the temp is gonna be in the 100's this week, so she is gonna cancel (mum, that is).

By the way -- we forgot to tell you in the last post -- we have a new kitty, Luna.  Uncle Vic found her for us.  She is really cute, but has not been fixed and last week she was in heat.  She made the most atrocious sounds all the time.  It took mum a couple of days to realize what it was!!!!  Before she went into heat she used to hide and only come out occasionally.  Now, she has been coming out much more often.  Actually, she has been kinda funny because she keeps sticking her tush into my face!!!!  Now that she is no longer in heat, she is not doing it as much!!!  She and Tigger are getting more friendly, too.  As soon as mum figures out (again!!) how to post a picture here, she will send one of Luna.

Mum is going to the Balance Clinic tomorrow.  They were sposed to call her to set up the appointments, but never did.  Mum was gonna let it go cos she was feeling much better but then had a mild dizzy spell last week, so decided she better go!!!

Otherwise, not much has been happening.  Mum and I are really glad that the apartment is pretty much organized -- just a few things need to be done, but mum did a little bit yesterday and now she is hurting, so she has to wait for that to pass before doing any more.

I really should be going to the vet, but mum cannot afford it -- so if anyone wants to donate to my GoFundMe, it would be really appreciated.

Well, I will keep on mum's 'tail' so that she doesn't go so long without posting again!!!

So, ttfn and toodle pip
