So Maw's neurology appointment is later this afternoon. The tests she had done the other day were the ultrasound of the carotid arteries and the heart. She didn't get any information from that stuff. Maw is assuming that a certain OTC nasal drug she was taking might have led to the stroke. Maw does tend to have higher vulnerabilities to medicines than other people tend to have at times. Maw is very lucky that the stroke was not as acute as it could have been.
Oh, that is something else that went away with Maw's speech abilities; her appetite. She has had very little appetite since having the stroke. It's slowly coming back, about like her speaking abilities. Strokes are very unusual.
Poor ol' Orinch has been hanging around our house a lot lately. He's been crashing on the patio right up against the house. We guess wherever he used to stay is now off-limits for him.
So we've still got a ton of tomatoes that Maw is going to make into a huge stockpot full of Marinara Sauce and then freeze it. All of the tomatoes came due very early because of the hot flash we had beginning in May, and now the tomatoes are about gone. Of course, if Maw were out there watering every day and fertilizing the plants, then she might get some more, but right now she doesn't feel like messing with them. It's too hot and Maw doesn't like it when it's that hot outside!
Oh! And Maw finished up the last book about Norton, Peter Gethers Scottish Fold cat. She had never even heard about Norton before seeing the first 2 books on ML & Deb's auction sites for special poodin needs. So she borrowed the books from the local library and read all 3 of them. The Cat Who Went to Paris, A Cat Abroad, and The Cat Who'll Live Forever. The last book made Maw cry and cry when she finished it last night.
So that's all Maw can think of to write about for now. Ok?
