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!!!

I have been trying to get mum to the PC to update my blog but she has excuses, excuses, excuses!!  Hope I can remember all the news.  Mum had her surgery on April 4 and although she says it was much more painful than she expected, the doc said it went very well.  Some of the pain meds they gave her made her quite loopy and confused -- in fact, someone from the clinic at the hospital called her this morning and said she had med mum at the hospital!!!!!!!  mum doesn't remember her AT ALL!!!!  Also, Uncle Vic came to visit and she was so out of it he got quite concerned and called the doctor, who clarified that I would be ok!!!  I was staying with Jennifer at this point and she brought me to see mum at the hospital.  I was extremely glad to see she was ok and let her know with wet nose kisses.

Mum was at the hospital for a week then went back to the rehab center for another week and then finally came home.  Jennifer brought me home the following day.  Although Jen promised to come over to help finish with the unpacking, etc. she never showed up (she was sposed to come today but has not shown up!!!!!)  Also, she cleared out part of the living room, but had put all the stuff from there in the bedroom so that in order to get to the bed and bathroom, mum had to climb over stuff.  Even hanging on to furniture she still lost her balance a couple of times!!!!!!!

She finally got hold of someone to helpg her out, but it is costing an awful lot (which she cannot really afford).  She just reminded me that my GoFundMe page should still be up, so if anyone wants to contribute towards her and my expenses ....... (we still have major med for my Valley Fever).

Mum is recuperating quite well.  She went to see the surgeon the other day and he was really pleased that mum lost over 20 lbs since the surgery.  The surgeon and mum joke that if anything can go wrong during a procedure, it will happen to me.  Fortunately, this time nothing was other than he expected.  He is all the way over the other side of Tucson, but at this time, he is the only surgeon for that type of stuff that mum will trust!!!!!

We are still trying to catch up with all the blogs, but it is taking time!!!!  Mum's hands are bothering her too so she does not want to do too much typing (which, she says is the reason it has taken so long to catch up here).

So, without any further ado, we will close now

I barked this message to mum to type.

Cookie's mum here:

I finally got my laptop this afternoon so will do a quick post to catch you all up.  Unfortunately a couple of days after my last post, I had some very bad dizzy spells and ended up in the hospital on 3/22.  Then last Wenesday I was transferred to a rehab center.  Tomorrow early I am being transferred to a DIFFERENT hospital to have some surgery that had been scheduled a couple of weeks ago!!!!  I will be at that hospital for 4 or 5 days then back here for a few more days cos my doctor does not want be to be alone!!!!  Poor Cookie has been alone, but except for the first day I was gone when she was unable to go out, my neighbor has  been taking her out.  This has all been very upsetting for all of us.  I will try to do a longer post in a few days.

Well the Geek Squad guy cam today, so let's hope it all works!!!!!!!  I think I may have to go down to best Buy anyway cos there are a couple of things I still need done, but I don't want to have to pay any more.  Can you believe mum bought the new desktop in SEPTEMBER and only just got around to getting it installed, etc.!!!!!!  Mum had to move a few things so that he could get to the new pc and the desk, so she was really hurting.  Also, the a/c was not working properly.  The office here was closed, but she saw one of the maintenance guys, and he came over.  Turned out it was a problem with the fuse box!!!!!  He fixed it so now mum is comfy and cool.  She was having a terrible time breathing etc., with it not working properly.  Mum also got him to put some of the stuff she had on the bed moved so she can get into the bed!!!!!!  Jennifer has not been over to help mum out, and if she doesn't come in a day or two mum says she will put a notice on Craigslist!!!!  It is so annoying when people say they will do something and then they don't!!!  Mum still cannot make outgoing calls, so she is going to take me over to Uncle Vics in the morning and use his phone!!!

Well, so far so good -- windows10 has not eaten the post SO FAR!!!!  We will keep going and see what happens!!!  Actually, there are a few more things mum wants to write about, but says she doesn't want to push her luck (whatever that means, bol)
