Kittens, Grandpup, and neices/nephews.

Wow, again, I've been gone forever. Between getting the plans closer to being done for the accessible playground rebuild, and "injuries" I've been trying to heal, I'm going nuts.

I spoke before of 3 injuries to the top of my left foot, my left shin, and my right inner ankle before. Well my foot and shin are healed, but now my ankle is having problems. I've got infection in it, and it hurts constantly, so finally I went to urgent care (my own foot doctor was gone along with his staff), and they kept me there all day. Talk about pain, but they started an iv of meds and then gave me a prescription for the same meds to take by mouth 4 times a day, along with pain meds which don't really seem to help. My ibuprofen works better than that.

Anyway, I got up this morning and it looked like the dark area in the center was gone. I don't know if a "scab" had come off or what, but it was gone, but it looks like it has some pus there. And it HURTS like crazy, but I've got a foot doctor appointment today at 1 (Urgent Care made it for me) and another appointment already set up next week with my reg doctor. The one I'm going to today is a specialist in Diabetes foot care so that's good, considering I do have Type 1 Diabetes.

We're getting closer to the plans being finalized for the playground, just a couple things I didn't see on the plans that need to be changed. We have a meeting in March to discuss the plans, but I have a lot more things to do before then.

Have given a few speeches for money raising and awareness; working with the ones who donated the $100,000 a lot, and just running around all over the place.

Other than my ankle, things have been going great all around in rt, finally. Just that one obstacle, and it seems to be getting better, without that dark area on it. YAY.

Have a wonderful day everyone, and here are some great pics of my grandpup and the new kittens!

Brande took a bunch of pics of Gator running, and with the kittens, so cute:

Brande called this "Homeward Bound" with 2 cats and dog instead of 2 dogs and a cat:

The 3 newborn bengal kittens (there were 4, but the male died before it was born):

Theyr'e so cute, this was 2/7;

This was Gator during his Valentine's weekend visit with us. This is how you know he's in a deep sleep, he sleeps on his back:

On the Wednesday before Valentine's Day I went with most all of the grandkids over to Mom's house to wish her a Happy Valentine's Day with all the grandchildren. One of them, Breanne, had gotten home from Arizona where she and her husband now live, so it made it even special. Only 2 missing were in school and couldn't be there. The 3 youngest are great-grandchildren.

This is one pic of my hair, I got about 8" cut off and did this. I love it:

Ok, that's it for now, hopefully will be back soon! Have a wonderful week, and hugs to all.
