Thank you for your kind comments.
I stayed on the sofa last night. Managed to sleep a couple of hours. Made a fuss of Scooter, whose sinus problem was having a noisy stage. When Kevin got up for work I gave Scooter his morning meds in a piece of raw pork, then kissed K 'have a nice day' and headed for bed.
A little more sleep, check-in with mum on phone at 9am, then downstairs to check on Scooter who was........ sitting outside in the sun!
I kept an eye on him out there, and as the sun moved round so I put down blankies farther and farther down the garden to catch the warm rays. Eventually the roof of the house made it impossible to keep up. Eventually he retreated to indoors again.
Mum was up not long after 1. She has managed to get a bus here on her own for about 2 weeks now which is at once amazing and terrifying.
I cooked salmon for everyone. Scooter had a belly full.
I haven't eaten much this week, but I enjoyed my salmon pie and chips.
Still low. Cry when I think of Scooter not getting better.
Meeting up with Beanie on Sunday. Nervy but optimistic. Don't think I'm the best company at the mo.
I am saddest of all to see the summer go, especially when I see Scooter clinging to the last warm rays. He loves to lie in the sun. If only he were going into summer with this illness, not winter.
I can't think very much. I am worn out.
