A journal of a "post-lingual acquired hearing loss in adulthood", or how I went deaf - and got a cochlear implant - at 39.

Guess where I am?
Thanks for playing. I was in Florenceville-Bristol (used to be Florenceville; they just amalgamated with the village over), NB, named for Florence Nightingale (srsly), French Fry Capital of the World and the world headquarters of McCain Foods, inventors and purveyors of frozen french fries (among thousands of other foodstuffs around the world). If you've eaten a McDonald's fry, you've eaten a McCain fry. I think it is not surprising that they have a potato museum.
I get to visit this place for work. Isn't my job awesome?

I'm sorry for neglecting my blog for so long. It's summer, y'know, and things slip by. You spend many more evenings on patios than on the laptop. I mean, it's Canada! We only get summer for 5 minutes!
But things have happened. Mojo lost a few ounces of weight during his weekly weigh-ins when he gets sub-q fluid, so we have doubled-down on trying to feed him several meals a day. (He throws up one or two a week.) Today: Success! He has gained 7 oz. in a week. He is now at 8 pounds 5 oz. (Yes, we never stopped using the Imperial system for weight in Canada. Metric never caught on for weight or height.) He gets his sub-q fluids every Wednesday without fail, with his dad and I taking him through horrendous traffic, as one of the two bridges across the river to his vet's office is closed. He still doesn't seem to mind them at all.
I had my appointment with the Ophthalmologist and yes, it will be surgery for the cataract. In the fall. I like the ophthalmologist. He's quiet and thoughtful and kind, I think. He listened to my concerns (which were legion) and considered and responded to them all.
So that's what's up here. There's more stuff involving our backyard fence and the tire rims on Kate, the PT Cruiser, that I'll blog about later. They're works in progress. All Husband's doing. I'm very grateful for him right now, as always, as is Mojo.

Mojo the Great
For the benefit of Mojo's fans, a video.
He's acting sprightly for a sick kitty. He's having some problems (he needs to be fed very small meals repeatedly throughout the day and is having weekly sub-q fluid injections). But you'd hardly know it from his overall demeanour.
He's also blogged about it himself. He's coming back to blogging after the loss of his sister and getting sick himself. Slowly. As is his human staff.*
*Husband pointed out that my clumsily-written final paragraph makes it sound as if his human staff is slowly getting sick. I meant that his human staff is also "[slowly] coming back to blogging" after the loss of his sister and coping with Mojo getting sick himself.
