Not so Merry Christmas

It’s more like Merry Hissmas for Sandy Claws.  Took my 15 year old cat Sandy to the vet today. As I suspected, his diabetes has come back. This is 3 Decembers in a row! Mid-December 2011 he was diagnosed and went on insulin. By about March he went into remission.  Yippee! December 2012 back on insulin, 1 day short of 2011’s diagnosis.  Was on insulin till about May, then remission again.  Now it’s December 2013 and it has returned yet again. What is it about December and diabetes?????

He got a shot of antibiotics, and tonight his first shot of insulin. Only 1/2 unit, which barely registers on the needle. Time for sleeping, so hopefully he feels better tomorrow.

So here I am, not editing. 🙂 Got a tweet today that reminded me of one of the stories I want to write. I’d like to find a body on the property of the National Historic Site in my hometown – Hillary House in Aurora, Ontario.  Possible title – Murder at the Manor. The Manor is the original name of the house.  The Hillary’s were the third and last owners before it was sold to the Aurora Historical Society.  The previous owners were Dr. Strange and Dr. Geike, making the house a strange, geeky house. Hillary was a doctor too, as was one son. What better place to put a dead body? It fits into the general period of my other stuff  too – the house celebrated it’s 150th birthday last year.
