Not sure what has gotten into me but I've now finished two fics over the last six months. First there was She Sells Sanctuary in the Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea fandom and just last week I posted to final chapter to a Brass/CSI fic called Shelter from the Storm. This one is a sequel to Forgiveness and features the return of Annie Kramer. I haven't finished two fics this close together since 2007. As painful as it was, changing jobs really was a good thing.

In other news first it was the right elbow, now it's the left. I have a surgery date of April 8th. I guess my left elbow was jealous and wanted a matching scar. I'm just a tad paranoid of getting another frozen shoulder so I'm glad I'm not waiting too terribly long but the freaking elbow hurts so much that I may take a kitchen knife and cut it off between now and April.

And lastly, my kitty-boy, Harry, the oldest of the trio, was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in early January. He's on prednisone now and that's helping him eat. My goal is to get him to his 12th birthday on April 28th. He's lost some weight but other than that and the spit ups he does if he eats to fast, he's doing okay at the moment. I was pretty gutted when I found out and I'll be gutted when I lose him - he's been such an awesome cat - but at least I can enjoy the time he has left. And if he's still around after my surgery, I'll have four weeks to spend at home with him.

Oh man it's good to hear from you, even if the news is a mixed bag! Hurray for tackling the fics and finishing them--I haven't quite got the courage to go back to some I need to finish, but I'm glad YOU did!

I feel for you in the joint dept and hope your surgery is quick and helpful. Right now I'm dealing with OA and my shoulders, elbows and wrists are majorly cranky.

And my heart goes out to you on your kitty situation. (((hugs)))

Sympathies on the kitty front. That's always the hardest thing.

How is the new job, BTW? I hope they're supportive of you having surgery.

Nice to hear from you!

Okay, so those two fics yours I really, really need to get around to reading. Promise I'll try to do it over the weekend.

Sending some comforting virtual hugs on the kitty related front.
