It has been another lovely day at Camp NaNoWriMo and my current word count is 26,404 words. It is so nice when my characters take me in hand and all I have to do is try to keep up. After a morning appointment and an afternoon visit to my osteopath, I puttered briefly in the garden, picking up some fallen branches, plucking a weed or two, and moving a fountain whose pump had died. Then I worked on my puzzle until Dr. Nell arrived. I was so lucky to be able to grab Laoise before she could run as she has been throwing up a lot. I wanted to be sure that it is more than just being an old cat. Dr. Nell took blood to check on her thyroid, and depending on those results, I may need to give her some meds. Then Nell looked at Calliope’s left eye, and I get to put drops in it for several days. Next up was Oliver who now needs to have meds in his left ear. And Chauncey has a skin irritation on his chest which will need to be sprayed daily. Poosa thankfully is practically perfect, and Thackeray stayed out of sight and is also fine, but all I have to say is that I’m glad it is break! I’ll have more time in the morning to medicate the three who need it. I should hear tomorrow about Laoise’s thyroid. It has been a glorious spring day and a lovely start to my break.
