Gimme the Drugs!

Got a prescription for Lunesta from my family doc, and finally was able to talk to my pdoc. She's switching me to a different medicine to use in conjunction with the Zoloft that just so happens to have sleep-aid uses. I took Lunesta last night about 7:30, fell asleep at 8 and was up at 10. I about started crying. I decided to take another pill and that seemed to do the trick. I slept from midnight to 9AM! Tonight I'm taking one Lunesta and trying out this new med, too. Hopefully the combination of both will knock me out for the night.

My kitty is sporting a nice war wound. They ended up removing the cyst with local anesthesia and stitched everything back up. They are always amazed how well behaved she is! They said she didn't even move or meow! That's my girl :) I've got to take her back in 2 weeks to get the stitches removed, but aside from that she's good to go! First thing she did when she got home is run straight to the food bowl, which allowed me to get this picture. Second thing she did was start scratching at the stitches so I had to bandage her back up.

If I didn't have enough going on now, my sister is going out of town and I told her I'd watch her puppy. I'm not really sure if that is the right word. She has a 4 month old German Shepherd and she is huge... and not graceful! The next few days will be interesting! My house is not puppy proof and my cat is not appreciating the noise and crazy behavior of this new furry creature. I hope my downstairs neighbor doesn't report me to animal control for housing an elephant in my apartment. I already feel like running down there to apologize. Should be an interesting 5 days! Tomorrow's plan is to go to the dog park! The high tomorrow is 107 (seriously) so we'll have to go in the morning. Should be fun!

Oh my goodness, the picture of that puppy is cracking me up!
I hope the new sleep med works out for you. I think the lack of sleep compounds all of the other things we have going on. Believe me, a fellow insomniac.
I'm thinking of you and your kitty tonight and sending you healing thoughts and soft comforting pillows.
Wow! Careful in the heat!

Texas hot-I remember that (my family is from Texas originally)! Go outside and you melt!
My friends have an equally clumsy dog--he falls over everything and runs into everything, so very cute!
I'm so glad you got to sleep last night--insomnia is the worst, I hope the meds work for you!

That's quite a wound on your cat - poor thing. And that puppy is a riot. Hopefully he'll be a fun distraction for you, and not too much work. It's so nice of you to babysit him - is he house trained yet?
