Okay, here is where things stand.
We are still getting information on contractors for our house and such, we met with one who claims that they can come very close to the amount that NY Rising wants to give out. Hopefully this will work out.
Bad news, FEMA rent money is gone and then there is our cat.
As you know our cat, Pickles had some major health issues and she had to stay overnight at the veterinarian office for three days. She was on an IV and getting shots. In her health condition most cats would have been knocked out. She is a little fighter and kept moving. She followed the treatment plan and improved very fast. It will include insulin for her diabetes and medicine for an infection she has.
Sadly she is diabetic and will have to get two daily insulin shots, the good news is cats can get better. This would be ideal as the insulin cost $200 a bottle. Which is a lot.
The cost of her stay depleted a lot of the funds we had managed to save up as it cost $3000.
Honestly though, I don't think it would have been right to give up an our pet, especially as she fought on and got better. (And she wanted to kill the vets.)
She is home and she had a little check up yesterday with them and she has continued to improve.
Needless to say this week has sucked.
In all of the chaos I wasn't able to post the story last Sunday. I will be continuing to post them and I will post one tomorrow. As a bonus though I did find another cute story that I am considering posting in addition. I am also considering testing a few new things such as a mini-series that will be posted on my blog (and eventually elsewhere) called You Should Play. It will focus on games. I already have the first one picked out and it follows the LGBT theme. I think it will be enjoyed and a pretty cool thing to do. The first game will also be free to download.
So yes a lot of bad things have happened but I am trying so hard to not give up. Even though honestly, sometimes that is all I want to do.
