As for my liver...........the doctor wants me to diet for a fatty liver and if it is still high in 3 months then he'll order a sonogram. Huh? I am not obese, I am not diabetic, and I eat a pretty healthy diet...everything the nurse mentioned that can cause it I don't do! A high AST could be anything related to the liver. I said why does he think it's a fatty liver problem? She said because he sees a lot of them.....huh? So without further testing he is assuming that's what it is? It could be heart, cancer or any number of other things but I'm supposed to wait 3 months to see? Once I get Grace on track I'll be calling another doctor. I just don't have time right now. If this is still going on next week I may have to insist that the vet hospitalize her as I need to take care of myself too and I can barely do that while focusing on her every 2 hours. I pray she starts eating again and everything gets better. She is only about 6 years old and such a sweetie.....she cries because she doesn't like it but she doesn't scratch or bite and takes her pill and food like a trouper. I am so blessed to have the animals I have.
I did manage to make my favorite Green Chile Spinach Quiche...........again with the other homemade piecrust.........
I made another Orange Romaine Salad to go with it............
I didn't do YOP Sunday as I was too busy with Grace and upset about her too.....in researching on the web I discovered I had probably caused it! It said you should never drastically change a cat's food but gradually or this could happen....I have never heard that before! In fact the vet had said before that she was overweight and I should probably switch her to canned food as it has way less calories. She never mentioned weaning her gradually. I had switched her food! Talk about feeling absolutely terrible... I would never purposely hurt my animals but evidently ignorance can lead to some serious consequences!
Anyway, I have got about 1/2 of the first sleeve done on my sweater, I am on the length of the Cozy Memories Blanket now and have almost 4 squares done (I try to do 4 a week) and I have almost 4 of 10 star points done on Star Treetopper Ornament. The weekly goals last week I am still working on! And the monthly goals for January never got finished either. Every time I try to move forward it seems something always happens.....it almost makes you feel jinxed and afraid to push forward for fear something else will happen.
I did get dresser #2 cleaned and polished and I need to clean out the drawers now. I made another batch of homemade dog treats and vacuumed my upholstered chair in my bedroom and washed the covers for it. I also finished the book A Year in the Maine Woods...very good if you like nature books. I'm about 1/2 finished with Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix also very good!
I've been pretty monogamously watching Stitching The High Notes podcast and trying to catch up.
We are supposed to get an ice storm starting this afternoon and going all night. It's not supposed to be like the one in 2009 where 18 people died and I about froze to death! I have good wood now and I am prepared! So bring it on! LOL! Although I really don't want to be without power but maybe we'll get lucky!?! I will try and get around to everyone's blogs but it's pretty crazy here with Grace being so sick. Oh, my son has sent the camera so hopefully I will be back in business soon with better photos and not having to be plugged in when I take them. I also got an aromatherapy mister from my sons and grandson for my birthday present.....so nice! It changes color and mists the air with a lovely lavender scent from essential oil that came with it! I'll take a picture when the camera arrives.
Please say a little prayer that my Grace girl will recover....I don't want to lose her and I will feel so responsible if I do. No more pets! I'm getting too old for this! LOL!
I hope you are all having a great week and staying healthy and safe!
