lightning & great america

After feeding him droppers of water for over an hour on tuesday night, the cat has bounced back finally and even went outside today. The TEENY TINY printing on the antibiotic said "refridgeration required" and our 40+ eyes couldn't see it and then noticed it on friday. We got a replacement and he likes it NO better.

Yesterday I went and interpreted at "Deaf day" at Great america! It was really great. I got to meet many interpreters I never met before and work with several of them. It was very fun and great to see everyone working together! I just love this profession!
having a relaxin sunday..

poor kitty

my favorite cat, lightning, got hurt friday and wouldn't use his front right paw. He hopped around and I thought it was the little cut he had. Then on sunday, it became VERY swollen so I took him in yesterday and he had an infection, fever and an abcess around the pads. We got him back today (349 dollars later, thank you very much) and he looks even worse.. he is groggy and his paw is a MESS!!! It is gross and it smells (I think it is just blood, but YEESH!!!)
poor guy is sleeping under the piano all day. I blotted it with a moist rag as instructed and he protested for a few seconds and then just FELL ASLEEP while protesting. too funny.
Beyond that, I'm getting pretty good at monkey ball with my son Matthew on the Wii. It is great fun. I'm not much good at anything else.
Just so you know.. black cherries are starting to get nice and sweet now. yum.

Love the harmony

I could listen to this 20 times in a row (ask my sister, I used to do that.. it drove her NUTS)
For those who love barbershop, you'll love this one. For those who don't, don't bother, there is no video.. just singing. A guy and his voice multi-tracked 50 times over. my first embed. Hope it works.
