Yes. Again. I have another UTI. Every since I started with the hot flashes and the chin hairs I have been having UTI’s. I went to the drop-in clinic and the very nice woman doctor told me it was one of the most common thing women of my age come in for. “But I am 43!”, I protested. She gently smiled and said I am lucky I didn’t start having them earlier. You know what? I don’t want to accept that I am just going to be prone to UTI’s! I want to prevent them, not treat them. I already drink 6 – 9 cups of water everyday. I drink cranberry juice. What else can I do? So frustrating.
Something is wrong with our older cat, Sheldon. He is very weak and lethargic and is not eating or drinking. If you know Sheldon you know he loves to eat. He weighs 14 pounds! He has to be fed twice a day because he has no shut off valve when he eats. We tried giving him salmon juice but he is not interested. That is saying a lot. Anyway, he is resting under the rebounder and we are keeping an eye one him. He isn’t in any pain. He is a good old cat.
Addendum – This is going to sound awful but I do not want to go to my step-grandma’s funeral tomorrow. Not because it i will be sad, It isn’t all that sad. She was 90 and lived a good long life with the same man for 63 years. She never wanted for anything, in fact I would go as far to say she was quite wealthy. In the end she went fairly quickly. She lived a charmed life. The reasons for not wanting to go are 100% selfish. I don’t like wearing a dress. I hate having to hold my stomach in for 3 hours. Being an introvert, I hate the forced socializing. I would rather say goodbye in my own way. Go out into nature or meditate. Maybe give quietly to her favorite charity.
