A few readers have asked how things have progressed with us in the Cosy Apartment over the last few days.
Renn is feeling better but cannot shake his cold. His nose is crusty from snot, which I try to clean up with varying degrees of success, and he sneezes a great deal. This he contrives always to do in my face. But otherwise, he is faring well, behaving normally and eating a good amount again.
Minuet is eating a combination of her seniors’ food and Recovery, which seems to appeal to her sufficiently for now. She threw up last night – this time I found the evidence – and I suspect that it was due to giving her too much Recovery which, as I wrote previously, might be too rich for her. I am therefore reducing the ratio of that food to her other, but mixing it well, so the taste of Recovery is prevalent.
Neville and Hector are the same as always – for the time being – and providing me with no health-related worries.
For myself, I am having rather more discomfort these days, because, I think, of the shifting of swelling in the regions affected by my surgery. The pills I was given by the doctor to contain pain are not working well, but I can relax by lying down. Standing increases the pain and, since there are things that must be done, surgery or not, this presents a problem some times. However, I have a number of friends who are helping me here cope with the situation, for which I am grateful.
Once the swelling reduces, which I expect will occur in the next few days, things will improve. Until then, I am no worse off than most people following an operation, and better off than many. And, with a return to winter outside (hopefully a temporary state), the Cosy Apartment is indeed cosy, and a happy resort for all of its residents.
