GREAT NEWS - on Kitty Jamie that is. He left Greenville, S.C. by car with @Brian106sc as the first driver at 8:30 this morning. So far they are on schedule and he's already past Jacksonville, Fla. I'm guessing - half way to his new home. All reports from the drivers indicate he's stolen their hearts and they all wanted to keep him. I'm so happy Brian decided to rescue him & find him a home. I'll never understand why someone dumped him!!
I was a little worried yesterday morning with the hurricane so close to where Jamie was in S.C. But fortunately, by this morning's departure time, Brian reported blue sky! The drivers are awesome and all love cats. So Jamie is in the best of hands while en route. He's expected to arrive in Hollywood, Florida around midnight - plus or minus an hour. We wish him well in his new home and I know @MizzBassie will take very good care of him.
Several of you have left comments wondering if that shot worked that I had a couple of weeks ago! It might have helped a tiny bit, but it did not help as much as I wanted it to. I'm still taking pain pills. So tomorrow it's back to Physical Therapy, and I also meet with the Physician's Assistant tomorrow morning for a briefing. Meanwhile, the sacroiliac joints are getting very sore,and I'm overdue for that shot. I'll have to check with the doctor tomorrow to see when I might get that. I'm debating going back to the doctor in Appleton that has been giving them to me. With him I know there is no need to be sedated. Haven't decided what I'm going to do on that. By the way, the the recent shot didn't hurt at all since I was sedated, and insurance and medicare should cover it.
Regarding the shot and the outbreak of meningitis: I got the shot on a Friday - the same day they announced that those type of shots were causing problems and it was from one pharmacy located out East. I was concerned, but not alarmed. The next morning I did call the hospital just to let them know that I saw the article in the newspaper and questioned if what I received was from that pharmacy. They assured me that it was NOT that pharmacy - they get their drugs from a different one. When the news channels talked about the story, they showed the map of the US, and Wisconsin was not one of the affected states. So I felt pretty confident that it was okay, but still wanted to check with the hospital to make sure they were on top of it too. They were fortunately. One just never knows tho so it's good to stay on top of things.
