V-E-T!!?!?!

Update (9 pm, MST)- The visit went well. No infection, but LOTS of crystals in the urine. She had to get sub-q fluids (b/c her bladder was empty) and then I had to take a sample back to the vet. Doc gave her a steroid pill, pain meds, and special food. I have to take her back in 2 weeks. Not sure what is causing the crystals....any idea? This is the 3rd or 4th time that she's had this (which is probably why I was so quick to catch on to what she was doing). She's doing OK talking her meds, and seems to be feeling a LITTLE bit better. Thanks for the well wishes!!

Meeko heer- Does anycat haf a good place to hide?? I heard Momma talking on the phone to the V-E-T! I don't WANNA go!!!

Mom- Meeks, you KNOW you don't feel good. You've been in and out of the box 15 times in 15 minutes while I was in the bathroom. So, you KNOW you need to go see the vet. I don't like having to take you in either. You'll be fine, and feeling better in NO time!! (Besides...I'm not looking forward to fighting with both you and Rachael to take your meds!!)

Meeko- OK Momma...if you say so....

Sean Patrick Tallon~ We STILL remember!!

Note: This wuz originally posted 9/11/2006....we wanted to repost it. We'll never forget!



When aircraft crashed into the World Trade Center's twin towers, it was New York City's Bravest that did what they did best - head directly in to danger, in order to save lives. Firefighters, paramedics, and EMTs - side by side - as was the case so many times before.

Together with members of that city's Finest, they made their way to the heart of the tragedy. Grabbing their gear, the firefighters began rushing into the gigantic structures to assist with their safe evacuation, while the paramedics and EMTs began tending to the injured below.

It was while doing those jobs - in the kind of rescue that they had performed so well, so many times - that their lives were taken from us. (Taken from here)

Sean Patrick "Charger" Tallon was one of those such men. At 26, he had only a month or so left of being a "probie" (a probationary firefighter). Sean was one of the first responders, along with the other members of Ten House. Their station was right across the street from the World Trade Center. On the way up the stairs of Tower One, Sean helped a fellow firefighter that was having a heart attack, then he continued up with two more of his fellow firemen. They were trapped when Tower One collapsed.

Sean led an active and varied life. He was a Marine Corps Reservist. He also loved Irish music and playing the button accordion. He would practice for an hour or more on many evenings. The steady, easy flow of sweet hornpipes, tasty reels, and lively jigs would fill the house.

This is part of a song that was written for Sean, and was played at his funeral:

"Up the stairs boys, running to the top

Without a thought to slow or stop

Upstairs boys on 9/11 and they kept on going

to the gates of Heaven.

With the men of Ten House was Sean Tallon...

Although he wasn't the first, he wasn't the last...

With love of God and Country he never thought he could

see such acts of hate...

As we remember our Charger and the others

and shed a mournful tear for all his fallen brothers,

Although we didn't know them all,

we knew them well enough to know what they were made of...

And that was hero stuff.

written by Dereen and Marian Griffin

Sean left behind his parents, grandparents, sister and brother-in-law, and extended family in the United States, England, and Ireland, along with many friends. He is greatly missed by all.

May you rest in peace Sean Patrick Tallon. I would like to offer up this blessing:

Traditional Irish Blessing

May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind always be at your back,

The sun shine warm upon your face,

The rain fall soft upon your fields,

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.

Thank you for all that you and your brothers do and have sacrificed for all of us! You and yours will be in my prayers. ~Rebecca Buchenot Sain

But, Daddy's boss is AMAZING and he wented "to bat" fur us, and gotted us a howse). Granted, we's probabaly gonna haf to moov again in bout 6-8 monfs, but that's no different than normal fur us anymore. We's just happy to be in a place of owr own, and NOT a compartment or hotel howse. We's not sure of the "official" moov-in day yet...but sumtime next week. The bad news is that ALLA owr stuff is still in storage in Alabama, and will take ALOT of time to get to us. But...on the bright side, Rachael can FINALLY haf a real crib to sleep in!!

She also kept saying sumfing 'bout not wanting to haf to buy a new comforter.

Momma-Meeks, there was NOTHING there!! Not even my feet. No more nip for you before bedtime. And no, I don't want to have to pay for a comforter for the hotel after you snag this one.

Meeko- Sheesh!! See if I try to protect her again!

V-E-T Update

Well...we survived! Momma did too! She hadded BOF of us AND Rachael!!! We were well behaved, but Rach wuz kinda fussy. We bof checked owt good, but were a little overweight. The V-E-T sez that we need to go on a diet!! EeeeekkkK!!!! Momma sez that we're going through enough changes rite now wifowt that, so that might wait until we get to owr "real" howse in MT. (Momma note: we're going to be staying in a pet-friendly hotel until a house is available on-base. Could be a month or more.)

Bad news is that Meeko is having sum dental issues. FORL is suspected. She is missing 3 teeth!!! We's gonna haf to get it checked owt further once we get to MT. But....Momma is wondering why none owr previous V-E-T's noticed this?? Oh, well.

Hopw y'all haf a grate weekend!!

Shhhhhhhh......

SSSSHHHHHHH!!! We's in hiding. We're hoping that Momma will forget that we's supposed to go to the V-E-T today.

Crappity, crap, crap, crap.......the carriers are owt. Guess that means she DIDN'T forget!! See y'all later!!!

Toosday News-Late Edishun

Hey y'all!!

Yep, efurryone is feeling much better now! Rachael nefur really ACTED sick, just a little fussier than usual and had an "upset" tummy. She's takin' the pink Auntie Biotics now. Momma is pretty shur that Rach has MORE teefs coming in on top, and that that's what is giving her fits. As for Daddy, his was just the end of a L-O-N-G week catchin' up wif him and not eating good foods (just snacking all day). Silly Daddy!

As fur us....we hearded Momma sayin' sumfing about us goin' to the V-E-T on Friday! We's not the ones that haf been sick, so why do we gots to go??? (Momma here: it's just for your annual vaccines. You're both overdue, and you need it to live on base).

We haf found owt that we will be implementing the "M" werd on March 15th. Bof of us, Rachael, and Momma will be leafing ABQ then. Daddy might be done wif training, or close to it, and will come up to MT when he's done. Grammie and Poppie are gonna fly owt heer, and then drive up wif us. Poopie in the big truck wif alla owr stuffs, and Grammie in Momma's metal monster wif us, Rach, and Momma. It's gonna be 10 squillion hours in the monster!!! (Momma- close to it, 21 hours...at least!). But...we WILL be going through Colorado Springs, where we used to live. Momma is pretty a'cited 'bout that.

Saturday, February 27, 2010

Rukia Update

Well...Rukia didn't come to stay wif us after all. Daddy thought and thought about it (more than Momma had) and a'cided that it wouldn't be a furry good idea to haf her heer. Esapecially after alla the problems that we hadded when Emmy lifed wif us. (Y'all can read 'bout it heer, heer, and heer.)

So, Momma's been going ofur there to feed her and play wif her fur a little while each day. Momma gotted Rukia a laser pointer and she LUFS it!!

Hope efurrycat has a grate weekend!!

Poor Rachael hadded to get shots yesterday, and is feelin' pretty crummy today. She's been sleeping almost as much as we haf!!

Auntie Alicia's kitty, Rukia, is supposed to come and stay wif us this weekend when Auntie Alicia goes owt of town. Could be pretty inneresting as Ruika hasn't been around many ofur kitties. We'll keep y'all posted!!

Saturday, January 02, 2010

We slept most of the way, and Meeko snuggled wif Daddy fur a little while. We's happy to be back at OWR howse wif OWR stuff. Not that we don't like it at Grammie's.....but y'all know what we mean.

Haf a grate rest of yur weekend!
