Much to my chagrin, I have discovered I am not immortal. Although I strive to live a healthy lifestyle by eating a mostly plant based diet and keeping my weight in a healthy range, I had a bad pain in my gut Saturday morning and had to go to the emergency room at the local hospital. It seems I have developed gallstones. Well, I've likely had them for a while, but my eating habits kinda fell apart a the past week or so and I paid for it. I'm going to try to keep the doctors from using me to make their Porsche payments by managing my problem through proper eating habits and not have surgery if at all possible. It will depend what an ultrasound shows tomorrow, I guess.

Anyway, I was recovering at home yesterday, kinda weak from my ordeal, stretched out on the couch, when Rocky got on the couch with me. Now, Rocky is not a cat that cuddles up with his people, but yesterday he wouldn't leave me! He curled up on my chest, our hearts synchronized, and we both fell asleep for about an hour. He woke me moving to another spot to the side of me, but he didn't leave. I was really touched by his concern. He kept humming at me and giving me soft eyes. Today, I am feeling much better and he is back to his usual self - not bothering to give me the time of day.

It was nice having him all to myself for while anyway.
