In the monkey bag is my newest WIP, started on Monday when pao was waiting around in hospital to be discharged.
Tamyra is taking on the role of the serious but kind younger sibling. Sirius doesn’t seem to take the hint that leaping on the bed proclaiming his presence loudly when one person has a headache is bad enough but when both do… Yes, we still both have headaches. I have some coldy virus which is making me grumpy and pao still has a migraine. I think we are up to day 12 on that migraine now and as George (long-time blog readers will understand that George is pao’s transplanted cornea) was looking very red as was pao’s other eye that we had to make an emergency trip to the hospital to check that George wasn’t trying to reject again as it was something that was going on a few weeks back. Good news is that George is ok but both eyes are infected and sore so pao has lots of drops so I have no reason whatsoever to whine about my headache as it is quite minor in comparison. Two hospital trips this week and a few phone calls to South Dakota re my own medical bills from my US adventure put the provision of ‘free’ healthcare into perspective but despite all that I did rather enjoy my luxury hospital stay in October and I’m sure by now if pao was in the US, we’d probably have seen the neurology consultant by now. The only drawback of our system is that in many cases you have to wait months for appointments.. At least, we have one calm kitten who has spent many happy hours asleep next to one or both of us during the past few days.
