The Daily News
Monday, May 13, 2013
Today's news? My kitty is not diabetic. We were worried that she may be and the vet took a test last Friday to determine whether or not she is. We just got the results and the result is that she is NOT diabetic. The reason she was eating so much and constantly begging for food is that she is now on a prescription food (for her bladder) and the "dosage" for this food is higher than her old food was. We simply were not giving her enough food for her weight. Thank goodness that's all it was.
The other news is that my husband is sick. We shall see if I can manage to stay well with a sick person in my household. With the ETL diet I'm on, sickness is supposed to be rare and recovery is quick if you do get anything. We shall see.
This morning I woke at four with every square inch of my body screaming in pain. I readjusted my electric hospital bed and stayed in it til 9:00, half dozing but in agonizing pain. It was cold this morning. Last night there was a a frost.( I lost one plant.) And the cold bit me too. I think that's why I was in so much pain. In fact, I'm still cold and i'm still hurting....and I'm still in bed.
Tonight's dinner? Well, if the tofu thaws quickly enough, we will have beet and edamame stir fry. It is made with apricot preserves and vinegar so I think the effect will be like pickled beets. It sounds good. I'm looking forward to dinner. :)
Although I'm not looking forward to cooking it. I never do. I'm a good cook and can follow just about any recipe....but I still get nervous and anxious about cooking. I think this is because it's harder for me to be organized than it once was. I get my nerves in an uproar just because I have to cook a meal ...and because I pretty much cook a new recipe every day....I never ever feel "comfortable" or familiar with what I'm doing.
Oh well. I do what needs to be done and that's all that matters. For now, I just wish I could take a nap. Maybe I will read a book....then maybe I will fall asleep.
I hope you all have a great day. What's your news of the day?
