I've got a Gidge on my shoulder

Gidget loves to sit behind my head on the couch and lay her head on my shoulder. *swoon* So cute! I love how all of our cats have such different personalities.

Hi, my name is Gidget.

I'm new! I like to play, sleep, purr, drink water, play, sleep, purr, eat food, play, sleep, purrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...This house is pretty great and my humans let me walk all over them. My older brother and sister don't seem to like me too much yet, but I am wearing them down! I love to jump on Finny and chase her! I like to swat at Milo's tail and then run away! This place has a lot of toys and places for me to go. I love it here! purrrrrr.......PLAY!!!!!!!!

Not quite as glamorous as the Oscars, but I guess it is something!

Well, I hope to start blogging more often again. It's been another crazy year! Here is a quick recap of the year so far:

January - nothing to eventful, lots of snow...
February - more snow, turned 31, reaching my limits on dealing with some health issues...
March - decided I had to go to the doctor for a check up. had a feeling my hemoglobin was extremely low...yep, it was a 6 or 7! off to the hospital for a blood transfusion and a D&C...test results found cancer in my uterus. boo-urns.
April - time for the full hysterectomy. i had been through enough. surgery was on April 4. there was a 3mm speck of cancer outside my uterus too. not good. found out i would need radiation. happy to be able to keep my hair this time! rested and relaxed the rest of the month.
May - began radiation. 5 days a week until i had 25 treatments. radiation was easy for me. hardly any side effects.
June - finished radiation. had an internal implant put in for 36 hours of intense radiation. worst experience ever! unable to move, pain, discomfort. not fun.
July - back to work. feeling good though. first wedding anniversary. fun times at brie's cabin.
August - back into the swing of things. another cabin trip. in a mini-golf league!

Of course, much more happened, but those are the big things. Sigh. I hope next year is boring!
