DH had yet another operation on his mouth on Wednesday, i cant tell you how much we hope this will be the last of it and he can be pain free. He's recovering from the other surgery well and is back at the Dr's for a checkup tomorrow, still some bruising but we dont envisage any problems there except maybe a couple more weeks off on the sick.
On Thursday evening Mr Moe (our big kitty, pic in my sidebar) went out around 9pm, he's usually out only a short time and then keen to come in and settle down on my bed to wait for a cuddle up with mum. It was getting really late and he wasn't home, eventually we went to bed but hardly slept all night and kept coming down and calling him. Still no sign of him all day Friday, we searched the streets, asked neighbours if they had seen him but to no avail. He finally came home in a terrible state Friday evening around 8pm. A phone call to the emergency vet service and they wanted to see him immediately and from what we told them he thought maybe he had been poisoned. After a lot of tests, the vet decided the problem was with his throat and the stuff that was all over his fur causing the matting was his own saliva. He might have been trapped somewhere and calling for help causing the throat to be inflammed and over production of saliva or possibly got tangled in something and not able to escape causing restriction and over production again. He was given anti inflammatory injection and pain killer and sent home with strict instructions to keep him warm and quiet all weekend and monitor him. He's eaten nothing, drank a little but still has no meoowww at all and is still producing the thick saliva. I guess he'll have to go back again tomorrow for the camera to be put down his throat for a closer inspection, poor little sweetheart.

Gaynor recently had a RAK drawing on her blog and i was a lucky winner. Saturday a lovely envelope arrived full of goodies. If you haven't visited her blog, its a great read and she posts some wonderful pictures of local scenery around her. Thank you Gaynor, it really gave me a much needed lift.
She's posted a swop on her blog this weekend, if you need aida and have evenweave you wont stitch on pop over and have a looksee, maybe you can do a deal with her or find something in her eshop that you've just got to have LOL
My ornament in the exchange at JA arrived as well, but i cant show you the amazing thing that was stitched until partners are revealed early next month. All i will say is the stitcher did a super job and i will treasure it. Thank you 'mystery stitcher' a perfect design for me and so delicately stitched. The one i stitched was wrapped and sent off this week too.
I hope you are having a good weekend, we woke up to a covering of snow this morning, but it was all gone again by 10am!
