Back on the wagon for yoga after taking off last night to get D's cat to the vet, who drained the ear hematoma and gave me ear-applicable antibiotics for the ear infections (poor thing has a yeast infection in each ear). Also got a supplement for his arthritis, so I'm hoping he'll feel better soon. He's been awfully quiet (he's usually a "talker,") and administering the antibiotics is causing him stress. It's causing me stress, too. First time he's clawed the floor to get away from me.

Stress is something he also went through when the vet cleaned out his ears and drained the hematoma. But this morning his ear started filling up with fluid again, so it's gonna be another pow wow with the roomie to see what we can do. Surgery will require blood work and some tests to make sure he's a candidate for anesthesia, but it would also permanently cure the hematoma and allow his ear to heal. Sigh. We'll see what D thinks. I'm beginning to hate it when he goes out of town because something like this always happens when he does.

I counted my sessions and I've done 23 sessions in 31 days. Not bad, but I'm on a five week plan to complete 30 sessions in 35 days. We'll see how I do.

Other than that, I'm working on a short story with plans to adapt it into a script for a short film. What's everyone up to?

Poor little cat. It sounds like you're taking good care of him but it's hard to do things to cats that stress them even when it's for their own good. I hope you get the haemotoma sorted out.

You're doing well with the yoga, even if you're a few sessions short. I'm impressed anyway.

Good luck with the script. I'm on a hiatus from writing at the moment. I may go back to it if my knitting and crocheting keeps going wrong though!

Ah, thanks Fairy!

I should say that the 23 sessions in 31 days were from my first month. So far I'm on schedule to complete the 30 in 35 (which is my second month). Sorry - I really should proofread before posting.

I'm just happy for you that you're on target!

Oh the poor kitty!!! At least he's been seen by the vets and you both know what the options are. Good luck and hugs to kitty!

Your writing plans sound amazing!! Good luck and all the best!!!

Take care
