Yea! I'm remembering how to do stuff!

After some browsing around, I came across AOL's new file manager.  Not my old FTP, but works the same!  I was able to get this picture of Little Buddy up.  Its an old picture, but served its purpose!  Now, I have to remember how to add multiple pictures like this one.  I have been having quite a time with our new kitten.  He was a little butterball when we got him and he quickly grew and slimmed down.  I should of brought him to the vet right away.  I had suspected worms and it didn't take long for his little system to get overcome by them.  So he got wormed.  Right after that he developed chronic diarrhea.  He has been to the vet and got medication.  Today his stool was firm, but tomorrow it could be liquid again.  I am supposed to bring him up again Monday for another exam.  These are getting expensive and the little mite still hasn't been neutered!  Luckily I have a certificate for a low cost one for that!  They want me to test him for FIV and FLV.  I'm wondering if the diarrhea was just a side effect of the worming medicine. 

I'm working this weekend.  I am still employed at the nursing home.  I really like my job.  I love those old folks.  I seem more drawn to the Alzheimer's patients, even thought they can try my patience!  Cute play on words huh?  LOL!  One of my favorites on our rehab program died Friday.  I was very sad.  Not so much for him but for his wife.  He suffered a long time in pain. 

The kids are doing good.  Travis' grades are up and down.  Sarah is doing pretty good but shows some signs of ADD.  Her father and I are still in a custody battle.  He said he will "fight to the end".  He also claims to have stopped drinking and that his new girlfriend "would kill him" if he did.  I was shocked and angry.  All these years he was in the bottle with me and the kids and all of a sudden he claims to be reformed?  He said he resented me for getting pregnant without his consent.  Ok but is he going to punish me for it forever?  How long does he have to hold a grudge.  He claims he loves Sarah and wants shared custody of her but keeps throwing that in my face and refuses to accept blame for his own drinking.  No apologies, just blame.  He thinks we can effectivly co-parent but he keeps nailing me to the wall when I make the littlest mistake. 

Ok enough griping about that.  I have been dating again.  His name is also David but he is nothing like the old one.  He actually helps me and cares for and supports me.  Tends to be a little patronizing thought.   Ok I have to go get ready for work.  Hope everyone has a nice Sunday!~    Linda

I hope your kitten will be better, our vets are o expensive too. So Dave's a reformed person?! We'll see! Maybe one day he'll realise also that it takes two people to make a baby, what's the point in holding a grudge? Buddy's looking sweet as ever! Jeannette xx
