Busy, Busy Weekend

First off - Mickey came home AGAIN today for what I suppose is turning out to be just "visits".  Glad the owners at the old house seem to find this humorous.  And because of Mickey, we've all become very good friends - God does do things in strange ways sometime.

My stepson Kyle's cat had 3 kittens that are almost 4 weeks old now.  We plan on taking one of them - probably the black one.  I know, I know...we don't really need it, but I think Cooper needs a younger playmate.  Mickey wants nothing to do with him, Spunky wants nothing to do with him.  Sebastian will play with him, but Sebastian is almost 12 years old and not up to kitten play.  So Cooper needs a playmate.  We had originally said we'd only take a male...but since we do get our animals spayed/neutered - I guess it doesn't make a difference.  The other two kittens are the orange tiger variety - with Cooper already being that and Mickey one as well..we decided another tiger one was going overboard.  So we chose the black one.  But who knows - when they're bigger we may change our minds.  My sister-in-law definitely wants one of the orange ones.  I would, at some point, like to have another that looked like Strat...but not anytime soon.

Hubby's arm is still improving.  He can lift it noticeably now and if he holds it up and lets go, he can keep it up for a good 30 seconds or so!!  We're very excited.  He also, due to this new movement, is feeling pain in that area...another good sign.  The doctor had told us it may just all happen suddenly..and he was right.  The nerve specialist had said he thought there was activity there which is why he chose to wait another month.  I tell you, those doctors at Johns Hopkins do NOTHING until they are positively sure of what is going on.  I would never go anywhere else.  They could of easily given hubby an unnecessary nerve transplant just to get the money for it and didn't. 

My stepdaughter gets married tomorrow, so rehearsal is tonight.  I can't wait to get photos of Colton in his tux!!!  We've got cameras galore between my sister-in-law and I.  Makes a busy weekend, but I really do like her husband to be and that makes it worth it.
