Thanksgiving Luncheon

Tuesday, November 20, 2007

Samuel's preschool class had a special luncheon that included parents this morning. Landon was working, but I was there. Pictured above (left to right) are Samuel's teachers, Amanda & Tanja, and a few of the boys in his class. There are all boys in his class, which is completely coincidental, and I think there are about 10 boys altogether, so only a few are pictured above. Samuel loves his teachers & sometimes Teacher Tanja (blue scarf) babysits for us, which is a special treat for Samuel. Here is another picture of Samuel & Teacher Tanja from a field trip to the pumpkin patch in late October.

Before the luncheon, I attempted to take our cat Felix to the vet (Banfield, the Pet Hospital), but after trying two locations (walk-ins are supposedly fine, but did not work out today), I gave up & came home, then went to the luncheon. Later in the afternoon, I called & made an appointment, and we were finally able to get in at 5pm this evening. Since I brought him home from the groomers last week, an eye infection has been developing. By last night, his left eye looked pretty bad. Anyway, I don't know why these things always cost so much, but it was $150.00 for antibiotics & pain meds. I was a little irritated about the cost, but what do you do? Anyway, I don't have to worry about giving him his meds--Landon is going to take care of that. Hopefully it will clear up soon, but it could get worse, too, which means he has a chance of losing his eye. I hope it doesn't come to that. Basically, he has a corneal ulcer. Poor kitty. Hopefully, Felix will be feeling better soon. --Karli

Oh no! That sounds a lot like the eye infection our Gracie had in July. Unfortunately, we were visiting Scott's parents in Pasco and didn't get her to the vet until it was so bad she needed eye surgery. It was touch-and-go for awhile whether she'd be able to keep the eye much less have vision in it, but it seems to have healed very well. It was horribly expensive with all the follow-up visits and meds and all. But we're happy she came through it, and I hope your kitty does too. We go to Tigard Animal Hospital, which Kristi Buxton recommended to us, and we've been very happy with the level of care, if you're considering looking for a nearer vet.
