I finally gave up the struggle to deal with my foot pain. After exercises, orthotics, shoe changes, I went today and got a cortisone injection in my heel.
I would say that it was horrible pain, but in comparison to the 7 months of varying degrees of heel pain I have had, not so much.
Right now, it just aches a bit where the needle did its duty, but walking does not make me want to cry.
I will wake up tomorrow morning hoping for the BEST results to continue.
If I still have pain in three weeks, I will be back at the foot doctor's office for Round 2 of do something anything make this pain go away.
While I was traipsing across the country side searching for relief, L took the squirrel trap across the road, and by the time I got back, kitten number FOUR was in residence.
They are so freaking cute.
They hiss, and act all furious when you pick them up, and within a couple of minutes, they are cuddled up on your chest.
The gray one is saying, "Maybe if I close my eyes, you will go away."
They are 6 weeks, and 4 days old. To be exact.
Tomorrow they are going to the vet's at 5pm, to get wormed, and checked for fleas. They can't be treated for fleas unless they each weigh 2 lbs.
Then they are going to Tammy's........remember Tammy??? My first apprentice that abandoned me for a full time job. Go figure.
She had more fun at the studio.
Anyway, Tammy is taking the kittens, straight from the vet's, and she is going to socialize them, and find them homes. Dear girl.
She already has homes for the two with white faces.
And I (L too, don't let her kid you) have breathed a huge sigh of relief. No more worrying myself to sleep about the fate of these babes.
Now on to catching their mother, who has not been near us. She is mad, for sure.
If anyone wonders why I don't give money anymore to the SPCA, it's because I got my own little SPCA action going on right in Kingsbury, NY.
And if we can't catch Bubbalee in the VERY NEAR future, she is going to be taking Feralstat, which I will feed her once a week, to prevent her from getting promiscuous again.
But you are just too beautiful.
