HOLY STINKING COW!!!!

There is just no other way to start this blog. Yesterday morning around 5:15 I woke up and my head was hurting so bad I thought I was going to throw up...so I did.....then I realized HELLO you are getting migraine, get up and take some medicine......so I did......I had to call the mom I babysit for and very quietly and quickly tell her sorry but I am not sure how I am going to watch my own kids today. She understood, so I went back to bed until our youngest son woke up. I explained to him and his siblings what was going on and that I wasn't going to be able to help much today. So I waited, with my eyes covered and stayed on the couch unless I was throwing up until about 1:00. I fixed lunch for the kids and sent them to bed. I took more medicine and went to bed also. Everybody was resting great. Tim got home from work about 4:00, and it was time to get ready for church, I didn't feel great but I also wasn't wishing I could disconnect my head from my body. Our daughter Emily came to me and said my eyes feel weird. I looked at her AND THE WHITE PART OF HER EYE WAS SO SWOLLEN THAT YOU COULDN'T SEE HER BOTTOM EYELASHES!!!!! So without screaming (hello, getting over a migraine) I went to the phone and called our doctor's office...they couldn't see us (neither could Emily at this point) so I took her to LeBohnner Urgent Care while Tim took everyone else to get supper and go to church. I knew she was having an allergic reaction to our cats (which we got right before we knew she was allergic, but thought if we bathed them it would be fine NOT SO MUCH) but I wasn't sure how to stop it cuz this was way pass the Benadryl stage......(cuz that's what the doctor said) The doctor was able to look and make sure that there was nothing in her eye and gave us steroid eye drops, and 5 days of steroids to take.........So long story ends with short question.....Anybody want a kitten or two? If I have no takers my sister is going to take them to a shelter that will adopt them out. Anyway at the end of my day I laid down my hurting head and thanked God that His timing is perfect. He is completely amazing and so........HOLY STINKING COW!!!!!!!!!! Keep your eyes on Him and all passing things seem not so bad.

Bless your heart. I hope you are both feeling better today. I remember as a kid, my best friend had an indoor siamese cat who hissed at you everytime you came near or ran past it. Anyway, it never failed that by the end of the night, my eyes were swollen and runny. My throat was scratchy. I was allergic. By morning my eyes were glued shut. It wasn't until I was outside and away from the house cat that I was okay.
Maybe your kittens can be outside kittens and they can kill the mice, or snakes (ours has killed a snake) or moles. We have a great outdoor cat. And best of all, she's outdoors. So no kitty litter, no cat toys. No scratching the furniture. No cat hair. None of that.
Someone out there will want the kittens. Maybe someone who has a farm. Hmm.
