((((((Moonlady)))))) Love and support and prayers for all you are going through with your son. I hope the professionals around him can help him deal with all the hurt he's holding on to.


Cilla, hooray for a fun vacation! We got to go there for the first time last fall. It won't be the last!



Things have been busy as always for me. My son is back in school full time, which is wonderful. He still has frequent headaches, but generally at a level he can cope with. My bigger news is we just moved my father in with my family. He's been living alone over 800 miles away since my mother died, and has Parkinson's and very early Alzheimer's/dementia. He wanted to stay there as long as he could manage in the home he shared with my mom, and I did what I could to support him. But he's had a marked decline in the last several months, and after the second hospitalization in a month it was clear that the time had come for him not to be alone all the time.

Last week I drove out to IL with my youngest daughter, packed up essentials, and drove back. Meanwhile my brother (who lives near me) flew out a few days later, and then flew back with him a couple days after I left. That gave my family time to prepare a space for him in our basement and make it comfortable with a bed, couch, tv, and table.

We've still got a lot of work ahead to go through what's left in his house and move/dispose of it all, then get the house ready for sale.

Good to hear you had a great time, Cilla.

And also good to hear Galen is coping with the headaches and back in school Cheryl. Wwow, having your father come to live with you will mean a big change in family life, especially since he suffers from light Alzheimers. I wish you lots of strength for coping with that 'cause I know it won't be easy (but very, very rewarding).

Went out to a local event that is essentially a car boot sale for electronics and radio enthusiasts. Will certainly be going back to the next one as a great way to move on some of the stuff I don't need that is essentially worth nothing but is far too good or rare to bin. Ended up bringing back a section of an old Sony JumboTron, some panel meters and an Avo 8 multimeter though...so its inevitable that this will be a two way process!

Could have spent a fortune there though and probably filled the house several times over!

The weather's unseasonably warm here, around 28 C this afternoon (in a climate where a maximum of 25 C three days in a row counts as a heatwave), with thunder showers and heavy rain. The low pressure makes my head ache. Later this week, they're even forecasting tropical nights, when the temperature doesn't drop below 20 C... This is the sort of weather we usually get in July and August!

My husband and I have been invited to the British Ambassador's residence for the official birthday celebrations of Queen Elizabeth II on 11th June. The dress code on the invitation is business suit, so I suppose it isn't as formal as an occasion with evening dress would be.

Anneli, any tips on protocol and etiquette that applies to meeting a British ambassador would be greatly appreciated. I suppose the proper way to address a female ambassador would be Madam Ambassador? How about her husband, is he just a Mr so-and-so?

How the heck do they expect you to cram in all the legislation, changes to government (local as well as national), housing, water supply, sanitation, scientific advances, development of professional bodies, in 15 minutes!

Oh, and international controls on foreign travel, food purity, etc.

I had GYN apt today, I've been having some problems nothing major. When I left there I feeling all right. Walked to the pharmacy, not far at all. While I was there my right side of my lower back started hurting. It kept getting worse. I could not even stand up straight. So I went to E.D. I told them it did not feel like muscles. They said it was and sent me home. I still feel like crap. Been taking pain med which is helping. I still don't think it is muscles.

In other news, we have 3 tiny new born kittens. Two orange and one striped. Our black dog is happy, there are BABIES for her to take care of. She loves babies. Now until they are no longer kept in Tammy's room she will do everything she can to get in her room. We they come out she will guard and clean them. When they start going outside she will be there with them. She will be a better mama then the real mama cat.

I don't want any where the amount of cats as we have. I would be happy if we just had four at the most.

Mom & Tammy says we are not keeping the kittens. Tammy has a weakness for orange cats and we do not have any right now. If we keep one, we will keep two. Kittens do better if there are two the same age. Then they will decide that the other one should not be given away by itself. So my guess is we'll keep all three. I DO NOT WANT to keep any.

Awww Mawra! I hope you'll be able to get the mommy cat spayed later, so she won't produce any more kittens. Is there a cat charity in your area that spays and castrates cats at little or no cost?

We plan on getting her fixed. You can get vouchers to get cats done for 5 dollars, if you live in Lynchburg. Which we don't, but we do have relatives that do. It is a matter of getting someone to the humane society to get a vouches and take the cats in.

All kittens are cute, even the unwanted ones... That might be a problem...
