We are doing fine. Oliver had a setback this week, some infection flared up unexpectedly, and after another vet trip and more meds he is doing great. What I think happened is he was very carefully waiting until he was released from his liquid meds dose on the kitchen counter, running off, and saving the medicine in his mouth to spit out in another room. He hates, abhors, detests this liquid antibiotic.
We are now wise to his ways, and he is MUCH better, almost completely recovered. Soon I will post a photo of his new look sans fur on one leg and explain what has happened, plus some valuable tips for all cat moms out there to keep in mind when a crisis occurs.
I too am doing much better finally. Almost all the damage to my hands is healing well, my right hand is good but I do have one area on my left hand that needs some reconstructive surgery. Because it is on the side of my thumb I use for quilting I won't be able to quilt for awhile but I am optimistic at the final outcome and will keep you posted about that too. I will share my information with you. Many of you gave me valuable advice on what to do with hand injuries, and I thank you for that.
I can't tell you how much all your caring messages here and in emails have meant to me, and truly how much they have helped. I know you as quilters understand that my health and recovery are more important than teaching, and forgive me for cancelling classes.
I do hope to try and have some classes next year to accommodate disappointed students. Believe me, I would much much rather be teaching than dealing with injuries and feeling so wretched for the last ten days.
The autumn leaves are beautiful here, Oliver is chirping at me again, and better days are ahead. Thank you all again; am sending you all a warm hug of thanks.
