Grammy was too tired yesterday to do a diary for me...so she's helping me today. She gots a good report from the Doctors yesterday. She's on the right road....she don't need to see him for 6 months unless something comes up. She has to cut the salt out...lower the Cholesterol...lower fats and exercise more. So far she's doing well.
She would like to Thanks you all for the purrs and prayers and the kind messages you have sent her.
We loves you all and can't wait to be back more...but it will take time.
We hopes you all have a great day.

Grammy is still very tired and scared.
The doctor said that's normal.
She also still has the sinus troubles and she gots an Antibiotic for that.
They said she seems to be doing good. She lost 7 lbs from her last Dr visit in Sept, and 4 of those pounds were since she came home from the hospital last week.
She has been following a low salt, low Cholesterol eating plan.
She has a breakfast now... oatmeals and of course her cup of hot tea. No sugar...No cream....but that's the way she always did it.
Than for lunch she has sliced chicken breast on small roll
or a salad with chicken and 1-2 Tablespoon of Honey mustard dressing.
Dinner she have sliced lemon chicken breast
Lean Steak Very small piece, one night she even had a steak sub sandwich.
All fresh made. No more fast foods.
Baked potato, broccoli, sauteed mushrooms, onions, pepper.
plus applesauce, pear, apple slices.
She's on a good start. She still has to cut out her some of her favorites. like Cheese, watch using butter when cooking, she needs to find unsalted sunflower kernels and nuts for her homemade snack, with dried cranberries, and cherries and blueberries.
It's not really a hard eating plan....cause they already do alot of that stuff anyway, cause Pappy had heart problems way back and some other issues so she knew that way of eating....just has to follow along better.
On Wed she goes to Neurologist and will know more. So she keep all her questions and her eating journal to check out with him too.
As a tip for anyone that can't have fast foods ....Grammy and Pappy do their shopping and usually go to eat out on that day. So she knew she would want something and knew pappy would want go where he wanted to eat so while doing grocery shopping she gots a garden salad and fresh fruits. Than she got a small soda as a drink. She can have that but limit it. No big deal she's more a tea and water person. That was a great choice she said it was really good and she didn't have any thing bad. Now as for Pappy MOL!
We will update you on Wed after Grammy other Doctor Visit.
Thank you for the pmails, gifties and comments. Grammy read them all. We loves our Catster Friends and can't wait to be back full time again.
Have a great day Everyones!

Hi Everyones our Grammy is home from the hospital tonight.
She was taken from the Doctors office to the hospital Monday afternoon. They kept her there for observation and she had lots of test today. So she's still tired. She did have a Small stoke...but they feel with some changes she will be ok's.
We really missed our Grammy and was really glad when she walked in the door and said where's my babies.
So please understand that Grammy, Me , Francis, Angel Yoda and The Crew will be back when she feels better .... but we will be on the slow side of doing things in our Groups. We Miss you all and Grammy misses you too!
We hopes you all have a great day. And we will sees you ....when we sees you!

Just want to wish you all a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
Hopes you all have plenty to eat and drink.
This will be the first time in many, many years that Pappy, Grammy and Meowmy will do Thanksgiving at home. They usually went to Grammy's Great Aunts or Aunt Brandys. But her Aunt is no longer with us and Aunt Brandy has to work this year. You see she's a nurse and duty calls.
But this is a good thing for use. Our family will be home together.
Grammy is fixing the turkey today and boy does it smell good. You know I just Love TURKEY! It's almost done. Yummmmmm! I hopes we gets some tonight as a treat! She's going to have stuffings, potatoes, kale, and some other stuffs.
Yes we have alot to be Thanksful for this year.
We live in a great country that's free.....
We have a loving family....
We have plenty to eat....
We have a warm cozy home....
We have Cat nip....
We have toys.....
And we have TURKEY!
OH! AND MOST OF ALL WE HAVE GREAT FRIENDS LIKE YOU!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!

Wow! I gots a Daily Double!
Many Thanks to all of you for the pmails, comments, and gifties.
We just wanted to let everyone know....so far we ok.
Sandy made her turn and it's closer to us than they first thought.
It's been raining all night and still more today and the winds are starting to pick up. They are telling all Maryland to stay home and off the roads and bunker down. They say the next 24-36 hours are not going to be nice. We do expect power outages for sure....and with wind expected up to 100 mph they are calling for it will be days before we will get it back. They don't allow the electric company in the buckets till winds are down to around 25mph. So we will probably be off line for a while. But we will keep in touch till then.
The western part of Maryland is getting snow and expect blizzard conditions.
So All of Maryland is being hit by this storm.
So please anyones that are in Sandy's path....listen to your news and be prepared as much as you can and be safe.
Sure hope to be able to update you more later....but we'll see.
Take care and once again Thanks for my honors.

Well wes be busy getting ready for Sandy!
We got plenty of water, catfood, and disposable plates for our meals.
Plenty of kitty litter and some snacks.
As for Grammy and the family they be busy getting all the yard stuff moved and putting our hanging bird feeds on the ground so they don't blow off the hooks or bang against them.
We have heard lots about this lady and wes don't think she's very nice.
They say she full of wind and all wet....and like to drain you of you electric. We sure hopes she changes her mind and goes out to sea...buts it don't look like it. Sometimes you just wish your company wasn't coming!
Well we hopes you all are safe and prepared just in case Sandy visit you too!
