First off, a quick update on Breeann... I tried her on baby food yesterday and she threw it up, so I'm back on the egg, chicken, cat food mixture I did on my own, which she seems to tolerate. I gave her 2 cc's this morning. If she doesn't throw it up in a couple of hours, I'll give her some more.
She's acting fairly perky, though, despite not eating. It's heartening, but I'm well aware that I have to get food into her. I've stopped giving her the antibiotics -- they make her gag and froth at the mouth -- and am focusing on basic needs for now: food and water.
She has NO issue with the fluid IV at all. She doesn't fuss, or try to move or even give me the evil eye. So that's something.
Even so, I'll be very honest: if things keep up this way, she's not going to make it much longer. And while I realize she's an old lady, and I've been blessed having her as long as I have, it's never easy to face the loss of a furbaby.
Moving on ...
The school where DD is going has coed soccer, girl's basketball and track and field. I told her I wanted her to compete in something. Soccer is first, and I just got the equipment list of things I need to get if she participates:
Soccer Gear Requirements
■Cleats (at least 1 pair, but 2 would be better)
■Mouth Guards (2) - required to play. Must not be cut down.
■Cup & supporter for boys
■Shin Guards - must have labelling indicating NOCSAE approval and size
■Soccer shorts (3)
■Soccer socks (3)
■Practice t-shirts (3)
■Soccer Ball (put your name on it) - required to practice on your own
■Running or cross training shoes
■Soccer warm-up (pants/jacket) - optional
Seriously? How on earth do parents not go broke sending their kids to school?
Wishing you all a good weekend.
You Are Thunder
You are slow paced and steady. You don't rush to be the first to get anything done.
You have your own method of doing things, and it has worked pretty well for you. You are a systemizer.
You are hard working. You are industrious with an amazing work ethic.
You don't often make a big bang, but when you do, everyone pays attention.
