Froot Bat Friday - Finally!
Man, it's been a rough week around here. EG's been super duper crabilated. He's left my ears alone, though he did chomp on my ankle (and got in lots of trouble for it).
Let's see. We have lots of catching up to do and it looks like it's going to be my job to fill you in.
The new camera is ok. Mom's got it stuck on some red eye reduction flashy thing, so it does this askeery strobe light thing that makes us think it's lightning and freaks us all out. She's been practicing a lot, but well, she needs a little more practice. hehe She still hasn't gotten any pictures of Tazo with it because Tazo hates the lightning light and the horrible clicky shutter sound. As soon as she hears it, she runs under the bed. hehe
Last weekend, Mom and Dad went away for a romantical, anniversary trip. For two whole days. We had a really nice petsitter looking after us. She gave me lots of peanutbutter (frozen inside a Kong). It was delicious. She also remembered to let me lick the spoon after she gave the twins their stinky goodness. Tazo hid from her most of the time, but she did come out a couple of times to play red dot. I didn't think her and EG were going to get along because EG hissed at her the very first time she came over. See, Tazo had run under the bed and Lanette didn't want to leave her in there with no food, water, or litterbox, so she grabbed her and carried her out. While she was doing that, EG hissed at her. But they made up really fast and now they're BFF. I liked Lanette a lot (she played RAWR with me in the yard), but it was really nice to have Mom and Dad home. Plus, they felt super guilty for leaving us, so we got lots of extra cuddles. And Mom had taken off two extra days from her hunting place, so we got to spend lots of extra time with her.
As far as Aunt Jen goes, she's doing pretty well. She finished her first round of induction chemo last night (that means she had chemo 24/7 for one week). Mom threw her a "Kick Chemo to the Curb" party. The snacks didn't sound very good to me (Lifesavers, Jolly Ranchers, and soda), but it cheered Aunt Jen up. She'll get another bone marrow test in the next week or two to see if there's any bad leukemia still in there. If there is, then she has to do another week of 24/7 chemo. After that, the plan is that she'll go to the hospital once a month for a five day course of chemo for the next few months. She wanted me to thank you guys for all the purrayers and pawsitive thoughts. It means a lot to her.
We've got some memes to do and we hope to get them done in the next couple of days. We apologize for not making it around to comment on everyone's bloggies. We're reading, but not commenting much right now. Hopefully hopefully hopefully things will calm down around here soon.
Happy Friday everyone!
