Scans, Birthdays, Fish and Kittens

Lise, being all pouty

Today is a special day. It's my older daughter's 22nd birthday and the day I get to meet my new kitten for the first time.

It's hard to believe it's so long since my first baby girl was born. It's funny how every detail of the moment we first meet our babies sticks with us forever, isn't it? I can remember it as if it were just last week. She looked pretty much like she does now, just less hair and smaller :)

But back to today. This afternoon I’m off to the hospital for a bone scan. My doctor's concerned that I may be developing osteoporosis, a condition that’s common amongst those on long-term TPN, so he naturally wants it checked. Apparently it’s a simple, painless procedure so nothing I ought to be dreading. I’ve no idea how long it’ll be before I get the results but as I’m not the kind to worry about what might happen, I shan’t be losing any sleep over it.

As my appointment’s late afternoon I’m hoping that the local fish n’ chip shop will be open when I’ve finished. Richard and I discovered it by accident a couple of years ago and they have the best fish n’ chips in the whole world there. Well maybe not, being as I haven’t tasted food from every chippie, but it’d take a lot to beat it. Once fed we’ll be heading to my friend Jo’s house as she’s the proud ‘human mum’ of six kittens, one of which is called Jack and will be coming to live with me in about two weeks from now.

Isn’t he gorgeous? I haven’t seen him in real life yet so I’m dead excited. Jo has sent me regular photo updates and even made me a video clip so I feel as if I know him already but being able to actually stroke him and give him a cuddle, that’s gonna be the perfect way to round off the day. Seeing Jo again will be good, too. And her other half if he isn't working late. They’re such a great couple.

But all that isn’t until later. There’s a whole day to be enjoyed first. I shall be taking it very easy, though. Mustn’t knock myself out when I have to travel, be put through a scanner, eat fish n’ chips and visit a kitten : )

Congratulations to your daughter and the kitten looks really cute but then again I love ginger cats.

Good luck at the hospital.

Oh what a sweet little kitten! How exciting, I am very jealous!

Good luck with the scan, enjoy the fish n chips and Happy Birthday to your daughter!

Sharon J said...

Thank you both for your congratulations. I'm sure she'll be pleased to know there are people out there thinking of her :)

Pat. I've only ever had one ginger cat earlier even though I've had LOADS of cats in my life. It'll be fun having another, I'm sure.

Catz. He is sweet, isn't he? I'm counting the days until I can bring him home now.

Fingers crossed that the fish n' chip shop will be open. I'm already salivating just thinking about it :)

Lucky kitten! Talk about going to a good home ...

Sharon J said...

Thank you, Debi. I hope he'll be very happy with us. I met him earlier and he's absolutely gorgeous (even though he had no time for cuddles... just wanted to run around and pester his siblings).
