IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME

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.

KEEP FINGERS, ETC. CROSSED THAT IT WORKS

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)

So, ttfn and toodle pip

WE TOTALLY HATE WINDOWS 10

I know we sound like a broken record here, but windows 10 is driving me and mum batty!!!! It keeps eating whatever mum inputs for my blog so she has to reinput then it shows up!!

This was kinda rough week. Mum had a procedure done on Wednesday that was supposed to be "minor"; however, the nurses had problems getting the IV in and finally had to call the anesthesiologist -- who also had a problem with it, but did finally get it in. Incidentally while he and mum were chatting she said he asked her about her open heart surgery (done in 1961) and was amazed at how long mum was in the hospital and convalescent, etc. He said that now when someone has it they are home within a day or 2. Anyway, when mum came round after the procedure she was kinda hurting

WE FINALLY HAVE TELLY (SORT OF) -- AT LAST

The cable guy came this morning to hook up telly and intermutts. Well mum is having problems getting the one telly to work properly plus she is not getting the cable channels she is sposed to get!!! It is better than nothing, but still, she was told she would have certain channels and she's not getting them.

Jennifer came and spent 5 hours today and made a big dent in unpacking some of the stuff!!! Hopefully it will ALL get done soon.

BTW is there anyone else that would like to have a mini BAR down here in the Tucson area? I there are places for people to park their wheelie houses and also lots of parks for us to meet in the furs. Please let me and mum know if there is an interest.

I would also REALLY, REALLY REALLY like to thank Amber the Weinie's mum for spending so much time on the phone with her it has really helped her.

and mum realy HATES WINDOWS10!!! It is always screwing up her posts

WE ARE STILL HERE

I just noticed that it has been almost 2 weeks since my last post. I am sure some of you out there have the problems getting1111 your secretary (aka mum in my case) to buckle down and do a post. She really has no excuse except that she still is not feeling 100% and the doctor cannot figure it out!!! She has an appointment this afternoon to go over the results for the tests she had done last time she was there. This has happened before -- (before my time with her--bol) where she just feels like crap. Usually, watching a good program on the telly will help get her out of it, but we still have NO telly service yet!!!! Jen has been coming over and gradually getting stuff put away. Yesterday, mum came across a bunch of stuff that she brought over with her!!!! It is mostly letters and cards she received from her friends when she was in Habonim in London,from when she had her open heart surgery back in 1961!!!! There were a couple of things from a bit later, but that was mostly what it was -- she started almost having leaky eyes from some of it!!!!!

Anyway, hopefully this yuckiness will not go on for much longer -- she said that last time she told the doctor she was "sick of feeling sick". She had a different pcp then -- unfortunately, that doctor has since retired!!!!!

Oh, well, I just wanted to let you know that we were still around and trying to read your posts -- mum is still having problems with windows 10!!!!! So what else is new, huh?

will catch up with ya

WHO LET THE DOGS OUT -- BOL

As I mentioned in my last post, Uncle Vic invited me and mum over for the Super Bowl and to stay overnight. Well, on Monday morning, as mum was getting ready to take me home, they were arguing and mum was no paying full attention to me!!!! I took advantage of this to take off before she could get me hooked up and Coco followed me! BOL Well, mum and Uncle Vic tried to follow us but they were too slow. They said they went all over the neighborhood but could not find us!! We had a great time but after a while decided to go back home!!! We got a major talking to about not doing it again, but they were so happy to see us, we were OK --- BOL BOL BOL

Mum and I took off to come home but mum was not feeling well for the rest of the day -- of course, I put on my nurse's uniform and took care of her till she felt better late in the day. We called the doctor's office but could not get an appointment till Friday but agreed to go to the ER if she got worse, but she finally started to feel better!! *sigh* not a fun day. Oh well......

so, I will go back to taking care of mum for at least today

IT. IS. FINALLY. OVER


This is the start of the post that WIN10 tried to eat


The court case against me (for an incident last July) IS FINALLY OVER. Mum took me with her on Friday. We started out at the lawyer's office. Mum had spoken to him on the phone but had never med him in the furs before. I, of course, behaved myself -- even on the van!! After discussing the case, and mr attorney checking out me and my leash, etc., to prove that it had not been me, but the other dog provoking what happened, we walked over to the courthouse. It was pretty chilly out, and the City Court House at one time had been a several level high garage so the outside temps came inside -- except in the court house. Mr. prosecuter and our attorney chatted a while then the Judge came in. Of course the "victim" did not show up, so the case was dismissed "without prejudice". Mum and I were so relieved that it is all over. She had been making herself sick with the stress of it. Of course, we all know that I did not do anything wrong and if the "victim" had kept control of HER dogs, nothing would have happened ..... Mum had to wait for a ride home and got pretty chilled. We got home around 4 pm and she made herself some ramen noodle soup and relaxed till it was time to leave. She had been trying to get to Temple for the past couple of weeks, but for one reason or other didn't make it. She was determined to make it this time. She says she is definitely gonna go again, but she is gonna try to sit closer to the front in future!!! After, there was an Oneg with the most delicious cream cakes, etc. When we did get home, she tried getting on the pc but fell asleep in the chair, got up and then went to bed. I was very good to her and let her sleep.

GRRRRRRRR-WINDOWS 10 SCREWED US UP AGAIN

Mum had started a post and Win 10 screwed it up again!!!!

I was telling about the fact that THE COURT CASE IS OVER -- had only been hanging over us since last July and was the cause of all our moving woes!!!1 Anyway -- to cut a long story short (if it ever shows up, we will post it then) the CASE WAS DISMISSED 'cos the "victim" never showed up!!! In the meantime mum was so stressed out over it!!! She has spent most of today sleeping and relaxing. Our neighbors across the hall (two very nice Mormon missionaries) have been helping mum a bit with the unpacking and, after sleeping on the floor for several nights, they finally got the bed cleared off. Aside from having the bed, she was very relieved that Sixpence had not been buried under the bags/boxes, etc. However, that means that Sixpence must have gotten out!!! Tigger and I miss her, but hopefully she found another good home. Mum has not decided whether to get another kitty yet!!!! I let mum sleep late this morning then, after she took me out, and read the paper, she went back to sleep for another few hours!!! She is feeling somewhat better!!!!

Well, I'm gonna let mum go rest some more and will post again in a couple of days

GRRRRRR-MUM HATES WINDOWS 10

Once again Windows 10 tried to defeat mum -- but she has figured out what to do!!!!! When she has these problems she laughs at herself because (87 years ago when she was still working) she used to be the one troubleshooting problems for other people in the office!!!! I think she has just gotten lazy as she gets older -- she says she's entitled to it!!!! Anyway, she figured out how to get to this point and be able to post on my blog.

Things are starting to get better here -- things are starting to get organized; however Jennifer (the person doing the organizing) gets sidetracked by movies and cds that mum has!!!!! Oh well, at least it is getting done!! Today April (a friend of Uncle Vic's and mum's) is coming over to her. She is desperate to find the bags that have her can opener, food and pots and pans so she has some more stuff to eat. She is flat broke and does not have a can opener to open some of the cans she has!!!! Also, she broke one of those curly light bulbs and they shatter into tiny bits. I musta stepped on a piece of it cos my paw hurts and I am limping but mum cannot afford to take me to the vet. We are also very low on my Rimadyl and she does not have the mony to pay for a refill!!!! Please, wont someone give some money to my GoFundMe account to help us out!!!!!

Mum finally brought my kitty sistahs home on Saturday!!! Surprisingly, she was able to catch Tigger quite easily!!! She thought that Sixpence was under the bed, but when she tried to get her out it turned out to be Uncle Vic's kitty Kiki!!!!! Mum finally found her hiding in the closet and grabbed her!!! While mum was trying to get her in the carrier, she (Sixpence) pee'd all over mum's leg!!!! Mum was not very happy with her!!! Anyway, we started off home -- Sixpence was in a carrier that Mum could hang on her wheelchair, I, of course was on my leash attached to the wheelchair and she had Tigger in the hard sided carrier on her lap. Tigger complained the whole way home!!! It was just spitting rain a little as we were leaving Uncle Vic's but when we got to our street, the rain started to really got heavy!!! Poor Tigger's carrier had air holes in the top so she was getting rained on and she really started complaining -- really who could blame her!!! and, of course mum and I got soaked!!!! We were all very glad to get home. Mum let the girls out of their carriers and the were very happy and immediately started investigating. Sunday morning when mum took me to our doggie park, it was raining really heavy AGAIN. I quickly did my business and we went home again for mum to change her clothes and me to get dry!!!!!

Mum was hoping to get DirectTV and Century Link for her internet but apparently there is a lemon tree blocking our having directtv so mum had to cancel that and Century Link. She spent almost an hour on the phone making sure that it was cancelled. Century Link insisted that had not charged her anything, but lo and behold when she checked her bank account, they did put a charge on there. Mum could not speak to anyone there until yesterday and again it took more than 30 minutes to get it cancelled. They kept saying they had to check something and put her on hold, and then a different agent would come on who knew nothing about it so mum had to keep repeating it. One agent gave her a "different" phone number to call if they got disconnect and, guess what, yup it was the phone number she had called!!!! Finally, she was told that she would get a refund in 3-5 business days!!!!!

Well, at least things are starting to get bit better -- the wifi here is still sporadic!!! Mum was very happy to get onto Uncle Vic's internet when we were there and got quite a bit of "business" done while we were there on Saturday!!!

Well, mum wants to go get a cup of coffee and read the paper as it is still dark and she wont take me out till it gets light out-- in about an hour or so. So good buddies, I will say

YAAAAAY--I HAVE A DOGGIE PARK, AGAIN

Yes, its true -- there is a nice doggie park here. Mum has been taking me there every morning. It so much better than when mum used to have to walk me around till I pooped and peed -- although at Uncle Vic's there was an area of land where the doggies used to poop and pee, but it was not offleash!!!!! There are also lots and lots of pee mails for me!!!!! I like it here, although mum wishes that she could just wiggle her nose (as Samantha in Bewitched used to) and have everything put away!!!!! She did turn her recliner around so that she can now put her footrest out in full!!! Jennifer (Uncle Vic's housekeeper) is coming tomorrow to help her. She will get the stuff in the kitchen put away so that she will be able to start using it!!!! Jennifer has told mum she will help her put some pics up on the blog here. Mum has been using the WiFi here at the complex. At first it was veeeeeery slow, but today seems to be working better. Hopefully things will continue to get bette. The kitties are still at Uncle Vic's -- hopefully they will be home this week.

Will write more as things settle down.

GETTING THERE -- GRADUALLY

Hope everyone had a Happy New Year, Mine was not so good -- people were setting off fireworks, and cos someone (me!!) pulled down the shower curtain, I could not hide in the bathtub so instead hid in Uncle Vic's closet -- bol.
t
Anyway, after Mum took me and Coco out yesterday morning, she went over to the new apartment. There was a mixup with the paratransit van so she did not get to the storage place till about an hour later than she planned. The guys who were loading the van were really nice. They were deaf so mum communicated with the with miming and written notes. As they were bringing her stuff out, she almost cried a couple of times because the people who had loaded into the storage unit had done such a lousy job. Sturdy boxes were falling apart that should not have been because of the way they were stacked. My kitties' tall scratching post seems to be falling apart!!! Mum said she is gonna call Walmart to see if they will do anything about it cos it is not that old!!! Anyway, by the time they unloaded the first truckful it was too late to load anything more -- the storage place was gonna close soon. So the guys followed mum to Uncle Vics to get the stuff there and are gonna meet her Wednesday to do the rest. After they had left, mum realized they had not taken everything, so it will have to go today (Wednesday). Again, this is costing her way more than she planned so if anyone wants to go to my GoFundMe page and donate to help out it will be greatly appreciated -- she reminds people that she is still paying for my last vet visit ($450). Part of the problem that it is taking so long is that before mum moved when she was expecting the exterminator everything was put into bags!!!! Oh well, this too shall pass!!!!!

Mum was so exhausted that right after she and Uncle Vic ate dinner (they ordered what she said was the most delicious ribs -- of course we didn't get any!!!) she went to watch TV and fell sound asleep!!!! Now she says she will probably we awake most of he night!!!!!
