Yeah, it's raining; the remnants of former hurricane Karen passing over. At least I got to sleep in and not fight my way through traffic, because I've been furloughed (intermittently, as an excepted employee otherwise...)

Kittens continue to grow rambunctiously, as they do.

Brady had a check up at the oncology clinic last night; his blood work is stable and even in normal ranges for some of the parameters, which YAY!!! He goes back in a month for a thorough recheck then. Until then, we are cruising along with the chemo.

The FF made it back home, her mother being stable enough to be sent "home" from the hospital with home care, etc. We made borscht today for her daughter, and will take it to the FD tomorrow.

Other than that, life is currently quiet.

Thanks for the update!

That's fantastic news about Brady. I hope it hasn't taken too much out of him, all this medical whatnot.

Also fantastic that the Fantastic Four Fabulous Fiance made it back safely. FD = Fabulous Daughter?

Not so fantastic is being furloughed. Hopefully, the overgrown 8-year-olds in Washington--you get to deduce the group to whom I an referring ;)--will not keep you from your job for much longer.

Brady has maintained his weight (with slight increases here and there, but he lost a bit being sick right before the recheck last week) which is pretty awesome, given that he was very thin when we started chemo. He put on a few ounces once we started, and he's mainly in that range. He's enjoying the kitten food, which I give him because it has more calories (plus it's highly palatable), and I give the kittens regular canned food (because they are HUNGRY and eat everything).

Yes, FD is Fabulous Daughter, although right now she's in the doghouse -- she's pregnant and her hormones are making her behave badly. Hoo boy. I hope this settles down as she goes along...

Yeah, keeping my fingers crossed and hoping the babies are put back to bed ASAP and the government gets back to work with pay. Ugh. In the meantime, I've got work to do around the house, LOL. Never-ending story, right?
