Catch-up

Greg came back last night to my relief (flying below the ash cloud). He and three other siblings managed to sort out their father's affairs and papers and to say goodbye. They also enjoyed seeing each other and spending time together as two are from Christchurch and one from Palmerston North and they aren't often in one place at the same time. Atanas still lingers and is his irascible complaining self so I doubt any of the past got resolved. They're giving him palliative care which is all they can do at this stage but he wants to go home to die (I suspect because he can get drunk there) and they may have to let him. At least Greg and the other three cleared a lot of the junk out and cleaned the place.

Re the junk, Greg was appalled and, a hoarder himself, swears he's going to stop now he can see where it leads. I hope this also means some of the junk around here (confined to certain areas but tending to overflow) will go.

Jasmin is also back. I had to take her to the vet two days ago because she was peeing copiously and incontinently on the furniture and me, plus salivating excessively. They thought she might have eaten something poisonous and kept her in for observation and tests. Her urine was very diluted and had high pH and protein which is often a sign of kidney damage, but they gave her two doses of atripine to "dry her up" and her urine was back to normal concentration today. They sent some for analysis and it was fine, so whatever she ate hasn't done any damage to my huge relief. She's delighted to be back home and keeps running to me crying for cuddles and purring with happiness when (of course) she gets them. :-).

And also the heating (aircon) is working again. It failed on Friday but Greg turned the main unit off and on again and that seems to have rebooted it. So yay, everything's right again (or as right as it can be anyway) and everyone's back home.
