Cold in Kentucky!
As you can see, mom changed our background today. Now we have the festive Christmas design. She said she is going to put a tree up this year. We'll see how that goes. She has a vintage 1959 aluminum Christmas tree, complete with rotating stand and the colored light wheel that shines on the tree. It sounds kind of tacky to us, but that's our mom! Two years ago she bought two "leg lamps" for the living room. They are like the lamps from the movie "A Christmas Story." Anymew, mom said when she was a little girl her own grandmother had an aluminum tree. Mom found this one on e-bay. Let's hope it looks good!
Fiona is under the weather. This is the first time she has been sick since joined our family. Mom noticed her right eye (and her only eye) looking "blinkey" on Monday night. Last night it was swollen and by this morning poor Fiona looked like someone had punched her! Her eye was completely swollen closed. Mom dropped her off at the vet on the way to work. Poor Fiona has conjunctivitis probably caused by the feline herpes virus. Dr. B said they put a warm compress on Fiona's eye and she seemed to like that. And they've already put the first doses on antibiotic ointment in her eye. She'll have to have that three times daily. She also has a bit of congestion in her sinuses. Fiona isn't running a fever, so that is good news for her. And she has lost a pound since she was in during the spring. Dr. B wants to see her again on Friday for a follow-up regarding her eye. It's always something around our house!
It rained here all day yesterday and then turned cold. We had snow flurries this morning. The temperature isn't suppose to leave the 30s today. Brrrrr....
Time to nap on mom's bed:
