Happy Halloween 2013...
Hi Everyone! Happy Halloween! Actually I'm not much of a Halloween person. I know some, like my DIL, love Halloween with the decorations and the costumes, etc. I'm not that person. It's OK for the kids to come by and Trick or Treat and I do put out a Pumpkin and a few ghosts, ravens, etc.(and heavens know, DH buys enough Snickers, Kit Kats, etc. to feed an army) - but I've just never been fond of the whole idea. For one, I don't like people ringing your doorbell at night. Yes, for Halloween I do make an exception, but still...
Anyway, my feelings are beside the point, as the kids like it. It can be fun. It used to be fun... when life was different. Now I think everyone is safer with the churches, schools, etc. having parties and not doing the 'door to door' thing. (Just my opinion)
Anyway, we had another visit to the Vet's this week... but not for Jack. Jack, as usual, has rallied again and is eating well. This time it was for Ghost, our little gray cat with the genetic kidney probs. However, it wasn't her kidneys. She developed a rash on her back and since I've never seen any skin probs with my cats, I panicked. As the case was, she had somehow come across some fleas (now our cats never go outside... so we don't get this... but I suppose DH could bring them in from mowing the lawn or something? - or possibly when we took the little feral kitten that was screaming outside our bedroom window about a month ago inside for a little while before we brought him over to the adoption center, we could have brought in a prob? He was only inside a short time and we kept him in a box in the bathroom.... but who knows. Anyway, we treated all the cats... just in case. It cost us another small fortune, but we were glad to know that Ghost didn't have a serious skin prob.
Now talking about 'skin'. DH and I went for our first ever Dermatology appointment this week. With all the doctors we already have; Family Physician, Dentist, Eye dr, Eye specialist, Oncologist, OB/Gyn, etc. we now have a Dermatologist (my Oncologist recommended his). A good friend of ours has 2 family members with Melanoma, so we decided maybe it would be a good idea to have things checked out. It was definitely an interesting experience. She was very nice and very thorough. As it turned out, she removed 4 moles from me that she considered 'questionable' which will be sent off to biopsy... and one on DH's face. I've put off doing this for a long time as my philosophy (which is a result of my BC) is that one is well until someone tells them that they aren't.
Well, that's enough for today. I have some errands to run before the Halloween Trick or Treaters start their rounds. And if I have time, I usually make DH a custard pumpkin pie for Halloween. Have fun!!
