    I was hoping not to have to ask this favor for awhile longer, but the time has come. My landlady informed me today when I paid my rent that in about 4 to 6 months I will be homeless. They plan on selling this house. I have known for awhile now, but was hoping to have enough time to find some where to move to. I have my name on every list in the metro area. I have talked to everyone possible. I talked to the welfare person at the hospital and at the rehab center. The housing in the Denver area is not only non-existent, but it costs an arm and a leg. I have to have subsidized because my income is $1000 a month. Average rent is $1,100 and the lowest is around $800. I also have to have a place that allows cats. What I need from the Ten Cat community are prayers and good thoughts that something will come along. I have to check with my stepbrother in Utah and see if the offer of a bedroom still is in place. I don’t want to move there and I can’t give up my babies. Without them, there isn’t a reason to get up of a morning. They have one dog and I think they just got another one. A big lab mix. My kids won’t survive with two dogs or being confined to a bedroom. Everything usually works out, but I am scared. I don’t want to end up on the street and I can’t give up my kids.
    I know that the power of the combined people here at Ten Cats helps move the universe.
    If I move out of state, I’m not sure how my follow up on my hips will go either.
    Please pray for me and send good thoughts.

    I’m a take it apart to see why it doesn’t work, then try to fix it first person. Has saved me a lot over the years. In this throw it away if it doesn’t work world, we need more people such as yourself that can fix things. One day we will need you to help us survive.

    DL, my step dad had three boys, but would tell any and everyone that I was the son he always wanted. Having grown up in an all male household, I learned to work on cars and drive anything including a wrecker. Also grew up hunting, fishing and camping. I was the only one in the family that had a motorcycle! Best Christmas present I ever got was a 1/2 in reversible variable speed drill!! Of course, my mom taught me to cook, sew, knit and crochet and now a days I do latch hook, needlepoint and a lot of cross stitch. Don’t have a lot of female friends and refuse to watch the reality shows on TV. I think that is why I love my cats….they are independent and can take care of themselves. I can relate. My husbands always had trouble understanding me. Good on ya girl, keep it up. The world needs more of us that can survive no matter the circumstances. Whether male or female.

    LadyKat, send it to 1435 Race St., #3, Denver, CO 80206. I would still love to see it. Hard to believe it has been 6 weeks since surgery and 4 weeks since I got out of rehab. Saw the doc today. I can drive!!!! They say I am doing good. Today was the first day since surgery that I have had a lot of pain. The weather has changed here finally and that may be part of it. Also, just the anticipation of this appointment may have something to do with it. They are sending me to physical therapy for gait training. At 64 years of age it is a little embarrassing to have to be taught how to walk, but this way I know I will be doing it correctly. Got a copy of the before and after x-rays. Not sure if I can post them. Not sure I want to. hahahaha
    Have to keep reminding myself that it has only been 45 days. Did find out that I am the first in six years that the doctor was able to do both. Everyone I talk to uses the word BRAVE when they find out that I had both done at the same time. Bravery had nothing to do with it. I may have to look up the meaning of the word again. I did find out that I am the talk of the orthopedic world. I was called a rock star by the doctor that saw me today. He said he had heard quite a bit about me and had read my chart and was impressed. They say I am doing great for what I have been through and I don’t have to see them again for 6 more weeks. They did tell me that it is going to be awhile before I feel halfway human. I feel good now, so can hardly wait to feel better.

    To all those that sent cards while I was in the hospital……as soon as I get paid this weekend, I plan on buying stamps and sending each and everyone of you a personal thank you. Have to get paid first. You know how that is. You will be hearing from me. :-)

    Mine was last Tuesday. You and I can share and I doubt if anyone will mind,

    Hi gang:
    Have been busy. Went with a friend yesterday to the Gem and Mineral show here in Denver. I took the four wheeled walker so I could sit down when I got tired. I was on my feet walking and standing for close to 2 and 1/2 hours before I got tired enough to sit. I was really worried that I had overdone. I guess I didn’t because I’m not hurting that much today. I have been doing my exercises and walking with friends as much as possible. I am still careful about my restrictions, but do push as much as I think I can get away with. There are so many things that I want to do, but know that some of them will have to wait. I have a doctor’s appointment in two weeks and really hope they will let me drive after that. I have been making progress as far as movement is concerned and I’m not taking as much pain meds. I can walk without even a cane, but I am really careful and only do that here around the house. My butt muscles are still complaining because I am having to relearn how to walk. I have “lurched” for so long, they don’t know what a step is. It still takes longer to do some things, but as time goes by, I am getting better about just everyday ordinary things. It is a whole new different world. Friends have been great about keeping me busy. I have had a lot of phone calls and visits along with going places like yesterday. Now that I can actually go places with them, my friends are trying to keep me busy.
    Thank you all for thinking about me. Will try to keep in better touch. Just so busy that the days seem to get away from me. It really is a different world than pre-surgery.

    Yep, they don’t warn you about the boredom. It has been had for the last four years and I really am not looking forward to several more months of it. Hang in there, you are not alone!

    Hi everyone. Doctor appointment went fine yesterday. If you could call it an appointment. They are now charging me a co-pay. Started while I was in the hospital. This doctor is filling in for my doc so I have never seen him before. He didn’t check my legs, or anything. Asked me why I was there. Told him I needed one more prescription for pain and then I would be done. He didn’t ask what the ortho people have said, how I felt or anything. He filled my meds and hopefully I won’t have to go back. If everything goes well, I will check into going back to my old doctor the first of the year. I just want to get to the 30th and hope they let me drive. I’m like 29palms, walking a lot. Of course, it causes a lot of bone pain in my thighs, but know that it isn’t hurting anything and that my bones will get stronger with time. Not quite walking without canes yet, but doing good with only one. I try to walk without any here in the house. Steps are small, but are getting steadier every day.
    Right now, I am having problems with the kids. I guess my being gone was harder on them than I thought. Buster is still acting out by picking on Precious and so she has taken to using the shower as her litter box. I went out yesterday and bought a couple of “calming” products. One a collar with cat pheromones, some spray that is supposed to do the same things and of course, stuff to clean the shower. I had moved the cat box to a spot where I could clean it without breaking the 90 degree rule, but I think it will go back where it was. Buster is spending a lot of time yowling and chasing Precious and he has been fixed so that isn’t it. I don’t know if it is the weather or just what. Since we stopped the prednisone, he isn’t pulling his hair as much, so maybe with a little time this behavior will improve also. It is just so hard to deal with hi behavior when I am trying to get myself better. Think good thoughts. Ronnie, we are thinking about you. Well, I need to go scrub a shower. My friend will be here later and she will help me move the box back where it was. Lets hope things start to get better.

    Qween, I am unable to see the pictures. I have refreshed and even gone out and back in a couple of times. Would love to see the pictures if you can try an alternate method. Thanks,
