Forecast and Faery Finder
By Janice Scott-Reeder and the Bitwit
Due to Cancer surgery on my forehead, I will be off indefinitely until I can heal completely, have at least one more operation to remove more cancer, heal…move to Hawaii and say the H with it! I can lay on the beach at night…
Message from the Microwits: Mommy won’t share her coffee. She says we will get addicted like Purdy von Sweets. Purdy is okay. She twitches a little and goes into a frenzy but she’s okay. Her eyeballs to roll around a little strangely. We wants COFFEE. MOMMY! COFFEE!
Message from Mommy: Just because I eat or drink it doesn’t mean it is good for kitties. Remember the hot peppers…..

COMMENTARIES BY JANICE SCOTT-REEDER
Life in the cat lane can definitely get you run over. Napoleon, Josephina, Purdy and Purrbie have all taken to joining me in the bedroom. Then Nappie goes ballistic and starts chasing them all over the room from furniture to furniture with me at ground zero on the bed. Yes, I am bruised. Then I throw them all out as soon as I get my hands on their furry little bodies after a lot of yelling that does nothing but make me feel better. I had been yelling at Josephina and finally she ran to the door to be let out. I went to slip on my shoes and discovered on the way out she left me a orange furry mouse on my shoe. If that doesn’t melt your heart, you don’t have one.
For us cancer ladies, fortunately I don’t have to have chemo, search Ebay for great buys on hats and turbans. I got some good buys last night. You can even find Do Rags. I have a dozen coming in that I will be decorating for myself. You could keep a biker gang happy for just a few dollars.
I started a new book that is coming out in October called Hush, Hush, by Becca Fitzpatrick. It is every bit as good as Twilight but with Fallen Angels. I was hooked by the end of the first page…more to come. After that I have a new anthology: Strange Brew and then lots of Dean Koontz, namely the entire Frankenstein series.
I picked up a piece of information yesterday no one ever bothered telling me. I have been asking optometrists. ENT’s and the like about my dry, gritty eyes for ages with no help forthcoming or reasons. It turns out dry, gritty eyes are a side effect of rosacea. Well, that comes under the heading: Who Knew. Looks like I am not getting a cure for that for a long while but at least I have an answer.
Fifteen years ago when I working as chronic pain specialist in a psychiatric office I had a client whose plastic surgeon had uttered the infamous words: if I pull this face lift a little tighter it will last longer. Never, ever, jump at that offer, I don‘t care how cheap you are! She was in chronic and excruciating pain, unable to go up and down stairs or jar herself in any manner. In those cases, our only recourse, if hypnosis failed, was a constant regime of narcotics. Now, you may think, how could a little stretched skin hurt that bad. IT DOES. My scalp is stretched to its limit. I have stretch marks on my forehead around the gapping holes, one in the center of forehead and several small ones at my scalp line. Goddess, the headache is constant. Then there are the little demons with searing hot pitchforks that live in my hair and randomly stick me to see if I am well done yet. Those are from the openings in my scalp to free up more skin to stretch. And this is week we try to get me off all medication…..I am having so much fun. Someone please shoot me and PLEASE do not miss. I need a kill shot.
Yesterday he clipped the knots out of the dissolving stitches in my scalp. When I asked how many stitches I got and he said a lot, the man was not kidding. That didn’t even count the row at the scalp line and the one down the center of my forehead. Trying to find a positive, and it ain’t easy Aunt Bea, the scar is going to be a crescent so maybe I can get a tattoo when this is over if it is ever over of a Moon Goddess or pentacle or something…..
