Ok, We went to FKO and had a really good time. Then we headed home.
Lets see, Katie threw up all over herself twice. Roper managed to injure his knee. We're not sure how.
We did find a gas-station-car-wash-laundromat-convenience-store-ice-cream-parlor some where around Lancing. Katie's blanket got rinsed out and tumbled in a dryer while we had some really nice ice cream.
Upon coming home we discovered that the cat had peed on the bed. I thought it was because we were gone, but he did it again today and is listless, ruffled and clingy. The vet's office is closed Wednesday afternoon, so I hope to have him in there tomorrow.

Yesterday I went to vote and then pick up stuff for dinner.
On the way home my body told me to go to the bathroom, go directly to the bathroom. Do not pass go,etc. I felt better afterwards, but dinner didn't sit well. It's better today, but I have treated my tummy gently with toast and yogurt.

Then there was the trip to the ER.
The girls were running about, trying to delay bedtime. There was suddenly screaming and blood.
As near as we can tell, Julie fell and whacked her head on the floor. The stories disagree as to weather Katie had any hand in the trip and fall.
Julie will have 2 staples in her head 'till next Wednesday.
I hope she will let me wash the blood out of her hair tomorrow.

Well, that's the update.
I have to change a poopy pull-up, and some more laundry.


Well, that's the update.

When it rains it pours around there. My prayers & good wishes for everybody's continued & improving health (especially Julie's).

Our vet is open 7 days a week, too bad you can't bring your cat here.

Trips to the ER are always "fun" and "exciting" (for some value of those words). Glad it was no more than a couple staples and that you and Bill are feeling better.

Ooh, hope the trouble with the cat is something like a UT blockage. Cats, particularly males, are famous for urinary tract issues, I've had to deal with a few. UT blockages are the easiest to deal with. I imagine they hurt through. They do make them pee in weird places.

Since the cat *is* peeing (although in inappropriate places), I would suspect crystals in the urine, along with a possible bladder infection. Maybe a partial blockage due to the crystals. Blockages in cats are a serious matter - if a complete blockage is not dealt with fairly quickly, the cat will die (you have at most a few hours before organ damage begins if a complete blockage is not taken care of).

Yeah, that's what our cat had. I guess partial blockage, from crystals. After getting it cleared at the vet, we switched to a low-ash feed (we use Diamond; same nutrient/etc content as Science Diet, 1/3 the cost, better because the cats don't like the taste as well so they don't overeat) and never had the problem again.

If you can find any kind of goo with lidocaine in it, using that on Julie's hair before you do anything else might ease the pain factor.

Beyond that, good luck with everyone getting better!

There's a reason "may you live in interesting times" is a curse. Here's hoping for a few quiet days.

Oh dear. What an adventure. Hope you are all better now! It was great to see you.
Thank you for Gracie!

Whew! You guys are amazing! Glad all are reasonably okay despite all of the real life excitement!

Hugs. That kind of cascading chaos can be so overwhelming! I hope everyone, including kitty, feels better soon.
