So Where Were You, Mr. Q?

Busy, to say the least, can't you tell?

It's been busier than a bunneh in a strawberry patch, but things have settled for the time being. Here's the 'quick' rundown, mostly in order: (starting from about 6-7 weeks ago)

  • MomBean got pinkeye that turned into a case of shingles in her eye. She got better.
  • The house got struck by lighting and it burst a gas line. The beans (and Tucker, I was already outside) had to evacuate at 10:30pm and stay the night in a hotel. The surrounding neighbors had to get out too. Thankfully the beans are okay, and a bunch of green papers later the house is too. (Roof damage, the entire gas line had to be replaced, the a/c got an arc hit...)
  • MomBean's shingles came back for another week due to the stress. It sucked, and she got better. GrandBean was down to visit that time and took care of things so MomBean could recoup.
  • But, MomBean has had some health issues surface within the last month, and it's been a rough on her. But the good news is that (hopefully) her vet has figured out what it is and they can start treating it/her. Something about her Eye-roid is shot and it's giving her hell.
  • And the biggest news, (that Millie has been ever so quiet about), is that come Halloween there'll be a new bean arriving. It's made some of the above more difficult, but so far so good.

Now if you need me, I'll be getting back to that nap...

Oh shingles in the eye is not so good. Our human had that but fortunately the day it showed up the doctor recognized it!

Ahhh the Woman has eyeroid issues too and I'm so tired of the whining about what it does to her flubber. But at least she's waaaaay to old to start hatching another sticky person...

.... your poor mom -- being sick sucks, being sick with a bun in the oven is just terrible. Poor mom, your poor mom, my mom would be BEYOND stressed she would be in the local loonybin. I am glad your house is fixed, I hope the insurance company paid for most of it.
Bonks to all of you, take good care of every bean Mr Monty -- it is your job.

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

There has been a LOT going on at your house, Monty! At least the part about the coming human kitten is good, even if most of the rest of it has been pretty un-good. I hope the human vets get a handle on all your human's ills so she is in much better shape for the baby's arrival!

Camie's Kitties said...

Good thing your mom has a good vet. A friend of ours got shingles in her eye and ear and it had multiple ramifications including a stroke. It is very serious in adults. Teri keeps sayin she needs to get the vaccine...

A new bean...watch your ears and tails, ok...
