Here’s what my kitchen sink area did look like. We don’t have the cat anymore. That’s Sugar. She loved to drink out of the faucet.
So today, I tore out the tile:
And here’s what it looks like now. It’s kind of a mess, but I did save most of that blue tile.
We just heard on the news about a couple in Rogers, Arkansas who just had their 17th child. Somebody needs to tell them how that happens. They live in a 7,000 square foot house. The news guy said he doesn’t see how they could have enough alone time to have 17 kids. But I had a great-great-great-grandfather who had 26 kids, with 2 wives. No, he didn’t have 2 wives at the same time – one died, probably from having kids. Then he married another woman with the same name, probably so he wouldn’t have to remember a new name.
They didn’t have tv and computers back then
We went to see Tigger and he seems to be a little better. He has his little kitty IV running to give him some fluids. He did have an obstruction, a large blood clot. Beth helped Rachael x-ray him. The doctor said she is going to put him on antibiotics for 2 months. He’ll be in the hospital overnight and Rachael will bring him home tomorrow.
We went to Home Depot and got all our building supplies, and then to Walmart to do a little grocery shopping. Pizza’s in the oven
We had to get extra tile to replace the tiles that broke on the countertop. I couldn’t find any more like we have, so I am going to do a star quilt design with a different tile, in a sea of cobalt blue tile. At least that’s the plan. I don’t know how many more blue tiles I’ll break trying to chip them off the countertop. We’ll see if this works It should because we did a similar design in the tile by the front door, and on the countertop at our pastor’s house.
Beth’s boyfriend, Manuel, was talking to me outside the garden department. Beth told me something he said that cracked her up. I’m gonna post it since she hasn’t been posting much lately.
Manuel: There’s Bethany. She makes my life worldwide.
Beth: Worldwide?? You mean ‘worthwhile’??
Manuel: Yeah, a little bit of that, too.
I’m just looking at a medical bill I need to pay. It really irks me to have to pay for a pregnancy test for Beth the night we went to the hospital, when we told them it was not necessary. I know what they were thinking…..and that irks me, too.
Tigger is at the vet right now. Rachael came by at 9:30 this morning to pick him up and take him in with her. That’s an advantage of having a daughter-in-law that is a vet tech.
She called and said he has a very bad bladder and kidney infection. It got bad enough last night that I really didn’t think he was going to make it. He was having trouble walking, controlling his muscles, which is what happens when the kidneys can’t filter toxins. The kidneys shut down.
This morning he started bleeding…..bad. So I’m glad he could get in today. Rachael is putting him on IV fluids because he is very dehydrated. They are going to do x-rays to make sure there is no blockage. Then they’ll put him on an antibiotic. They are going to keep him overnight, so he can be kept on fluids.
Beth is gone to see him right now. This is Tigger back in April:
Beth worked a few hours this morning. She volunteered because they needed a cashier today, and she didn’t get paid for taking off to do VBS last week.
