Wednesday Words and Plees

We know it is a busy time of year and not efurryone has green papers to spare, but if you do, please please think about helping us and sending some to our PayPal account.  We are having a tough time right now. Not only with our foodie budget (our counselor just says go to the food shelves, but there are things they don't have, like fresh milk and fresh bread and veggies that are not half rotting and k cups for our Keurig and nutritional frozen foods and special diabetic socks and laundry pods and warm pj's and a lap robe for Mommy's wheel chair. We can't even think about getting a new Bolt laser, or renewing our Netflix or even Meals on Wheels.

look, birdies!!
 Park near where Mommy used to live.
Me?  I miss my little laser. Mommy? She needs some good AA batteries (the cheap ones sploded inside my Bolt and that's why Mommy had to throw the laser out). Our tv remote won't work without batteries currently. And Mommy needs green papers for some medicines. We wish we could help others. What we can do is pray for those who are needy like us or need some health issue help prayed for them.
We do have a huge turkey leg in the freezer for Thanksgiving. So that is covered.
Once again, please think of helping us if you can.
Love ya (always),
Quinnie and Mommy
and a special hello from Angel brandi
Take care of my Mama and my little sister!

parting is such sweet sorrow

😿  oh, pretty laser light, you were so fun. i chased your cheery light all over this tiny apartment! to have to see Mommy throw you in the garbage was so sad.
she said the little batteries sploded inside you, and she couldn't get them all out cause one of them melted itself into you and you weren't safe any more cause Mommy couldn't get it out. you were too messy to clean up.
now what??? we don't have the green papers to replace you, sweet pretty light, now i have to be sad. goodbye sweet light.

sweet little Quinnie Makayla

Friday's Here

Mommy wasn't home much on Halloween.  She had a doctor's appointment and then had a grocery store gift card (thank you! From one of you out there!) and since it is two weeks till her check comes she decided to use it.  It wasn't much, but it got us a loaf of bread, a box of crackers and some cheese. So we had baked cheese sandwiches for dinner. Yum. She also tried the prepared Cobb salad at their salad bar. She said it was like eating weeds from a park. Wrong grocery store, but that was the one we had the gift card for.  Ooh, they have other really good stuff there. But their salads weren't.
When she woke up Wednesday she didn't feel good, so she stayed in bed a lot. We don't think it was the salad. Truly! She ached a lot and was really cold so she decided to drink some special tea (plum and then peppermint after it). It worked!
So Thursday was quiet except for the election people knocking on the door and Mommy only yelled at me once.
Now here is a secret. The chicken pecan cranberry salad offered at, yes, Domino's is scrumptious! But Mommy didn't have any coupons for that. Try the salads there. We don't even eat pizza any more. Well, if we had the green papers we probably would. But their salads are really good!
And they didn't even reimburse us for this testimony!
Hint, hint????
Love ya,
Quinnie Makayla

wednesday with quinnie

we know we haven't been around much lately. Here's an update:
mommy's physical therapy is almost done. she's getting more work done on her body with medicine and stuff. oh, and i am working hard at lowering her bloody pressure and we all know that is important.  she almost likes her chair, but this a small partment, and she is kinda clutsy with it. ii still don't like riding in it, but i am not the gorgeous raena and dezi. I do try my best when I help mommy, though.
someone is in today helping us clean, i am trying to supervise, but it is noisy in here and i don't like that. the lady also put a broom in front of my foodies and it is hard to get to. and she has taken the boards out of the shelves. i sure hope she puts them back!
and yes, my chair is gone! waaaaah!
well there is more room in the living room to play and  do zoomies..
oh, the very good news?
the windows are open today!
Thanks for all the good thoughts and prayers. send moneys if you can. or pizza???

mommy might be kinda mad at me for the last comment.
love ya all,
QUINNI MAKAYLA


What's with the Car Blogosphere? we can't enter anything.

sunday with quinnie

last week one day it was in the 90's and the next day, when  mommy had another appointment, it was in the 50's and raining. she didn't take an umbrella or a jacket, and she said she was frozen when she came home.  since it was lunchtime for her she had a bowl of chili to warm up.  she likes it a little spicy, so i didn't want to share it with her. but I did like snuggling with her afterwards.
and it was 90 degrees on saturday and really muggy. someday soon it will be cool enough to open the windows again before we have to leave them closed for winter.
mommy is going through her exercises with her therapists and relying more and more on correctly learning her balance again, and also correctly using her chair.
she has been told she has to get back to a cleaner as soon as she can and stop falling (and that is basically what she's doing with her therapists--they come to us and they are two really sweet ladies and they are helping her physically and also helping her with ease of access here) or she will be forced to go to a special place permanently and I can't come with her.  Waaaah.
we need your prayers again.
love ya,
Quinnie
ps. still don't like riding on mommy's lap on the chair. and there are rumors my chair is on its way out. Waaaah.

HI THERE

We've been hit with bad news and good news again. Mommy's port is gone, but she has another deadly infection. They put her on yet another anty bye otic and she has an appointment on Monday.
So that's the news. Good and bad.
She was at the hospital for a few hours yesterday. too. This time when she fell she hit her head really hard.
The only good thing I can think of other than that is that the weather is beautiful. Windows open, gentle breezes, wonderful smells. That part of life is good, And we are thankful.
love ya,
QUINNIE

Tuxie Tuesday

mommy is letting me do this again. woo-hoo. anyway, she has to go to the hospital this afternoon for what's called a ultra-sound. or sonogram or exray  or something. to see how her drain is working. maybe she can have it removed soon? she does need the port cover replaced.
she has been having major problems with the new wheelie chair and this morning she had a nice man come in and put in a new part.
i don't have any problems with the new chair, other than the fact that it doesn't have arms wide enough for me to sit on, and i don't like laps.
we will check in again.
anybody out there like my typing? i'm not good at capitals, but the rest isn't too hard.
love ya,

yet again

Just a quick update. Mommy is running a fever and yesterday we had a visit from our lovely (handsome) paramedics  . Mommy had collapsed and they were concerned about her heart. She didn't want to go to the hospital, but promised to see her cardiologist at the first opportunity, which will be tomorrow.
Very serious.
Send good healing thoughts.

Life at Our House

Hi! Miss us? Well, we have not had a fun time. I thought we better let you know what has been up:
The 11th Mommy went in for her surgery.  It went fairly quickly, and they said she could go home that afternoon.  She felt sooooo lousy!  When she finally got home she didn't even make it through the lobby before she threw up.  She threw up a few more times at home. She was extremely weak, and at one point, going to the kitchen for a glass of water she lost it, collapsed, had to call paramedics again. They wanted her to go back to the hospital but she refused.  The good thing is, not after three days but after 7 she finally stopped peeing blood. No doubt because she has been faithfully flushing her urinary tract with lots of ice water (I mean huge glasses of it every day!). But her appetite is not very good still. Nobody warned her about that. 
So I have been snuggling with her, and watching her and being nursie a lot.  She seems to like it when I make biscuits on her, so I have been making that part of my daily take care of mom routine.
Oh, yeah. I've caught up on all three seasons of Dr. Jeff, Rocky Mountain Vet! Awesome!! And, go, Dr. Pol!
Gorilla glue is dangerous.
Akil the fugitive hunter is not for us.
Send green papers??
Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. We couldn't have done this without you!
love ya,
Quinnie Makayla

News

😼 Hope you all had a safe 4th.  We did.  There were more fireworks closer this time, but being with my Mommy makes me not mind them.
Mommy had another appointment about her surgery, and it is going to be on next Tuesday early in the morning. So think good thoughts then, okay?  She will be able to go home the same day.
Still no cell phone, so no way for Mommy to make long distance phone calls for free.
That's the news update.
Love ya,
Quinnie

short update

Another trip to the ER for Mommy last week. She is getting closer to her operation, though. It's supposed to be on July 11, now.
She lost her cell phone on the way home from the hospital she thinks, only it costs to get another one. And it is a free government phone. But replacements cost.
She is so far behind in bills she's worried a lot. Can anyone help?
I have been a good girl, of course.
Jackson Galaxy had a cute black and white tuxie on the last show.❥

Praying for ya,
Quinnie

Still here.

We have been very quiet because Mommy hasn't been feeling well.  She has to get healthier to have surgery, so we are working on that. I check on her all the time, too. And she is doing better. She really doesn't want to do anything much of the time, though. She has been in the hospital again, and just Thursday saw her doctor.
Oh, about that, she got on a crazy ride home Thursday.  She was with a couple other riders and went  to the southwestern part of the twin cities on the way (we are northeasters). Normally this would be kind of an adventure for her. Lots of rural areas, lovely houses. Pretty.  But it was over 80 degrees and they had no air conditioning. Oooh, she was tired when she finally got home!
There was one bright light on this trip. There, on the side of one of the roads, was a deer! How cute!!
No camera on hand, though.
It is really hot this weekend, but our little a/c unit is taking care of us. May you all have ways of staying cool.
We pray for everyone every day and hope you are praying for us.
Mommy's tired again.
Love ya,
Quinnie

please if anyone can help, we are short money right now, and we get $35 overdraft fees. We get our money on the 21st.

Quinnie has an announcement

HI! We have been lost for a while, huh? Well, Mommy had some emergency surgery and then wasn't really feeling okay. It was for her kidneys and bladder.
She needs more surgery and hasn't been feeling good.  Throw in having to go through another review AND legal stuff.  She just wasn't feeling good and oh, yes, throw in a major tooth problem and a horrible high temp. And she had to run some errands down in the nasty road construction down town. The building her bank is in, for example, is entirely cut off!
She WENTto a pre-op for another surgery for the same problem only they turned her down, saying she wasn't healthy enough to make it through the surgery.
She mostly has been curling up and sleeping through the pain.
PLEASE SEND PRAYERS.
And maybe a replacement for our sick Dell mousie?
We might not be posting a lot, due to Mommy's being really ill.
I have even given her lots of bisquits to help... and you know I don't do those a lot!
Love 'ya!
QUINN

Saturday, as Mommy's Day approaches

😉What a week! We are sooooo in need of nappy time.  I actually---oh, remember I got a nice little cat tree (not too tall, I like being a jungle kitty!) from sweet friends some time ago? Well, I finally decided the little cubby hole on the bottom was a nice comfy place to curl up and be right by mommy in the living room. So I have a new comfy corner and if mommy doesn't see me sometimes, I can nap and she can't bug me but we can still be close.
We are going to have to adjust our budget yet again, because we have our air conditioner summer charges coming up. Minnesota DOES get hot in summer.
We have groceries coming today. And Chewy on Monday. Now we are very poor again.
 We have a new roach inspection Wednesday with that nasty bug guy. But we spent time with our cleaning friend this last Wednesday cleaning cupboards and scaring out a couple of our unfriendly bug visitors. So we consider the visit worthwhile. Scary, though. And we once again have a major inspection coming up.
Mommy finally found a comfortable and inexpensive watch! No more searching around for the time! It has a big "face" and the band is comfortable, it's a brand she's been wearing for years, And it was at Amazon. Now that took her less than half a nap to open the box it came in, adjust the time and put it on her wrist!
She accidentally dropped her flip phone and drowned it and is getting a replacement (government free phone). Well, we have it but can't use it because she doesn't know how to use a smart phone! If anyone can help, PLEASE! Seriously! Two days and counting I have been putting up with her!
Ah, windows open, cool breezes, expectations of snow fall. Spring Life in Minnesota.
Please have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
Love ya,
QUINNIE and Carol
can someone help me figure out how to get a pressie for Mommy's Day? I would love to get her something special.
Someone to help her make her Smart Phone dumb enough to handle???? That'd work!!

tgif?

Mommy is losing her hair. Really. There is a medical term for it caused by stress, but I can't remember it. Alopecia??
First, things don't get delivered by our postman. Or the boxes look like someone has been playing soccer with them. Wearing steel toed shoes.
 They left an email that an attempt was made the 12th and no one was here. Roll Call on the 12th: Mommy? Here. Karen? Here! They have so many complaints at the local USPO!Who wasn't here? Quinnie? No I was Here.  (A lot of them are important like our medical supplies or new checks for mom. Or statements for rent, or the folic acid we were advised to start on because my mommy's hair is falling out. And they think of lots of stuff to add all the time to our rules here.
Oh, and then A*l screwed up mom's account which means we didn't pay the rent yet. And so did F*******t. They have us with payments for 4 months! And won't give any back. We weren't 4months past due. It was our error. But because they got such a big payment they are waiting a long time to return it.
Speaking of rules, they added more stuff to living here that Mommy can't possibly do. Google is doing it's part making us sign in to blogger and some other accounts. And Meals on Wheels forgot to give us our lunch on Wednesday. But the lady apologized very nicely and before we could ask for credit, she suggested it. That was an excellent  save, mommy said.
And now it's the week end.  Thank you God for giving Mommy the patience to survive this week. Amen.
It was Black Friday, yesterday. Thank you Jesus for all your help on the world's behalf. We certainly need it!
 QUINNIE AND CAROL
LOVE YA.

We have been having technical problems this week so we apologize for not being here. We were fine, so don't worry there.  But it was computer and electrical Stuff.
WE MISSED YOU! 

WE ARE BACK.

 SORT OF.

YOU KNOW MOM!



😇😉 QUINN MAKAYLA

PS. Problems included the whole computer set-up and my floor lamp and one of my land phones. Eek! Karen came over Wednesday and helped figure everything out. I still don't know what was wrong, but Karen solved the problem. Now, anyone whose phone number I had I don't anymore. Except for ones that are on my cell. And that was mostly for Metro rides and "family" members. You know, the "family" who bitched me out for being in the hospital a while back and offered no sympathy at all.
Thank you all of you who are clearly better family than I have ever had. Although any of your phone numbers I had have disappeared. Feel free to call and give me your numbers again.  I miss YOUR phone calls! We love you.
Carol
