12 of 12 - November

It's time for 12 of 12 again!

6:30 am, my bedroom
My poor, old kitty has diabetes now. In order to keep track of how much she eats, I have to weigh her bowl of food before and after she eats.

7:00 am, kitchen
COFFEE!!

8:29 am, living room
I have been waiting for weeks for my boy's doctor's office to have the swine flu shot available. I check the web site every morning. Today, I finally got to make an appointment for him!

9:00 am, kitchen
Time for kitty's thyroid medicine and antibiotic

9:03 am, hall
And after her meds, she comes out to eat.

9:32 am, kitchen
Now it's time for her insulin.

9:38 am, kitchen
This is a BIG, honking sharps container. It just doesn't really go with my decor.

10:30 am, living room
Here are two paper-whites bulbs that I'm trying to force. So far, the roots have grown a bit. So I think it's working.

2:45 pm, kitchen
After-school snack for The Boy

3:30 pm, kitchen
Had to run out to the vet's office to pick up this blood glucose meter. Tomorrow we are doing a BG Curve on kitty, which means I will be pricking her tiny little foot and testing her blood sugar every two hours, for 24 hours. I don't think she's going to like me very much by the end of it.

9:20 pm, my bedroom
The Boy and I are watching Supernatural.
11:00 pm, my bedroom
Come to bed...don't come to bed...whatever. I'm going to sleep without you.

I hope I'm not the only one who immediately thought, "What's a BuffyGuide Curve, and what does it have to do with cats?" before I finished the rest of the sentence.

Poor kitty! You're such a good cat-mom, tending to all of her medical needs!

Aww, such a good mommy you are to the kitty. I'd do the same for Mocha, honest!

Nice 12!

Hi Laurie, I'm just getting around to blogs and 12 of 12's. I love your bonus pic... you ARE so creative. It truly is amazing what we do for the ones we love... even the furry ones.

Awwww, your poor kitty.

That snack you whipped up for the Boy looks good. I had that this morning. Along with a couple of other things... *slurp*
