Project 366 2020 Week 7 Day 40-46 The week where Brewster came home so it’s another cat heavy week on the photo front.
Sunday 9th February – Day 40
Storm Ciara was howling and it was most definitely a day to stay at home in the warm. Brewster would be staying another night at the vet’s so they could run more tests but we got the chance to have a quick visit for cuddles. We got him purring by the time we left.
Monday 10th February – Day 41
Apparently, this was comfortable, for Paddington at least.
I got the call that I could pick Brewster up early evening which was a great relief. He’s on a special renal diet for life now (not cheap) and has to go back in two weeks for another full set of tests to check that there’s no change with him being at home. Fingers crossed on that, insurance claim submitted too so really hoping they don’t find a way out of that as the last two weeks have come in at just under £1000!
Tuesday 11th February – Day 42
My son and I are rather addicted to the cinnamon swirls from our local Tesco – we had earned these after the last few days.
Brewster is definitely feeling more like himself as he had me up from 3 am wanting to go out (against orders from the vet). It was 4.30 am before he gave in but all morning he was constantly meowing to be let out, so in the end, I decided for both of our sanities I’d risk him being outdoors for a bit. He came home much happier.
Wednesday 12th February – Day 43
A busy workday for me and then my son’s best friend came over for a play date and tea after school. They both love hotdogs and the scoffed the lot. It’s so lovely listening to them playing happily together upstairs while I got on with some work.
Late evening I got a message to say that my Auntie was being taken to hospital by ambulance. Here we go again.
Thursday 13th February – Day 44
I rang the hospital at 8 am and my Auntie was still in A&E – 10 hours later!! Don’t get ill in Kent. Later in the day, there was news that she needs another scan.
The blog is seven years old this month, I’d meant to do a big celebratory thing last week but with everything that’s been happening, there wasn’t much to celebrate. Hopefully, we will have a better week next week!
It was an open afternoon at school and there were lots of science experiments going on in the hall with external companies coming in to do demonstrations – it was very interesting.
Friday 14th February – Day 45
Brewster is back to sleeping most of the day and venturing out at night. I’m doing my best to keep him and Paddington apart and Brewster has decided my bedroom is his base now. He’s eating well and seems back to his old self.
I won tickets for the menfolk to go to a model railway exhibition on Sunday so fingers crossed the weather isn’t too bad for them. We should originally have been in Derbyshire this weekend but my bestie had to postpone. I probably should go down to Kent tomorrow but I’m really worn out and with a busy week ahead I might stay close to home instead.
Saturday 15th February – Day 46
Having been released from the hospital my Auntie has ended up back there again today after being sick again all night and we’re still waiting for news of which ward she’s being admitted to. She clearly needs a procedure which she’s previously refused to have. We’re hoping that common sense will finally prevail.
I actually got to sleep in until 9 am so the decision to stay home was a good one. It’s poured down all day here and even the cats don’t want to go outside.
I’m not a fan of Valentine’s Day and certainly don’t expect flowers so I was rather amazed when the OH turned up with these last night.
