After holidays

Our holidays by the Baltic sea was lazy and relaxing. It was so “slow” for me, that I wanted to do something exciting. Everyday we were walking on the waterside, we saw the sunset once, we ate a lot of waffles and we fed the seagulls.
The weather wasn’t a nuisance, 22 Celsius degrees (salvation for me). Returning to Warsaw was a thermal shock for me! Within one night my legs swelled and looked like balloons... But let’s go back to the trip relation - cold water, spotty weather, but these didn’t discourage the people. The beach was so full of people, that we had even problem with walking between the windbreaks. Poles are really strange - everyone has to make “large fenced plot” for himself. Sometimes they used 4 windbreak (8 metres long each one), and inside it they had maybe 2 blankts and a lot of free space… I sympathized with kids, who came with parents to chill, make a sand castles and play beach volleyball and they didn’t have enough space to do this. When someone was passing near a blanket and accidently spilled a little bit of sand, the blanket owner made a huge fuss... The owners of enormous inflatable castle was also brawling at people. How we even dare to put our blanket 5 metres of their ridiculously colorful item??!! They tried to force us to move somewhere; I asked them if it’s their private beach and proposed them to call the police if they have some problems with life :) What do you think: would they get a ticket because of unreasonable call or the police would pooh-pooh them? I’m really curious of that :) The next day when we went to the beach we were rolling on the floor laughing, because we saw, that they made a grid fence around this castle... When we had rainy days and all those people were herded in restaurants, we were running away from thecity. We were able to go to Szczecin and three-city. It was hard for me to wake up very early, but it was more interesting to go somewhere else. Our photo session in Słowiński National Park is very nicely done! The photographer is professional, so photos are wonderful and these will allow us to keep this lovely moment.
In conclusion - it was really nice trip, as everywhere I met some cats :) I think in the near future I won’t be able to go anywhere, but I’m sure that one day I’ll return to my favourite national park.
When we came back - of course - our cats was very happy! They stayed this 2 weeks with my mum. They missed us and they wanted to pet and hug them. My mum couldn’t devote them as much time as they need. I watched them sometimes, because I left switched on webcam at home. It was easier for me to bear a separation. But I still missed them, I even missed to waking me up at 3am to purr on my pillow. It was terrible lonesome around without them. I think I don’t like to leave my home for long time because of this. Next time we’ll probably go for less time. My art spirit is returning to me! I bought a few fabrics to sew something for Maja (yes, we have chosen the name for our daughter!), blankets and maybe a teddy bear :) Probably I’ll also make a few masCATs for a charity auction (for cats of course). It depends how I’m going to feel. I’ll show you all my handmade items, for now I’m waiting for a lot of parcels! :)


Holidays before our trip

Let’s start with the great information, that I’m the calm person right now! Stress about studying has gone away. At the end of the June I got my master's degree!

I expected some problems with organising the term, but my promoter fell all over backwards to do it as fast as possible. And she did it. The employees in deanery asked the chairman of the master’s defense committee about the term; promoter and reviewer also agreed (I think they both a good relationship with each other, they cooperate with a lot of projects). On the exam nobody asked me about to discuss the subject of my thesis. I made a poster (my promoter told me, that it’s required), I was prepared to talk about it, but they didn’t want. They just asked me 3 questions around my topic and “thanks, you have the master’s degree now, next person please!”.
I made an appointment with my promoter few days after my exam. I brought her flowers - it’s polish tradition, that the way to tell “thank you”. I was really shocked, because she told me, that she liked our cooperation. I thought all that time, that she is fed up with me and that she prays every day to not to have such a student like me :) That was nice suprise :)

Urwis for a long time isn’t wearing his baby body cloth. He almost forgot about every pain and discomfort. He became more alive and he’s making mischief again :) And he wants to eat everything like before he got sick. His fur hasn’t grew up yet. Histopathological examinations confirmed, that it’s sarcoma cancer :( Now he has permanently medical surveillance. We have to check if the tumor doesn’t grow up in the same place, and also if there are no metastasis. He’s under control all the time, cause we have to detect all the changes as fast as it’s possible. I’m worried about him, but I know, that at the moment I have no influence on anything. We know for sure, that the surgery was made correct, the whole tumor was removed. Our beloved cat has a chance to get well.

I’m also worried about my Purka. We do not really know what’s wrong. Her behavior is totally normal, but the blood tests have shown elevated creatinine. We also made ultrasound examination (it was good) and urine test, which have shown that Purka alkaline urine pH and ketones. We have no idea what was the cause. Now we’re going to acidify the urine (with the cranberry tablets) and (just in case) we’re adding her paste which will dissolve the crystals (they can appear in any time with that pH). And also we have to control and watch her; check if she’s urinating without a pain, or is it clear (without any blood in it)...
Everything costs a lot of money, but it doesn’t matter for me. The most important is her health. She’s so young and she starts to getting sick, and even our vet isn’t sure what is wrong. This powerlessness kills me :( After one month treatment we have to repeat the urine tests and then we’ll maybe find out what was wrong.

Yesterday I had another one ultrasound examination. Everything is great, our little baby has 550g and it’s a girl! :) We haven’t chosen the name for our daughter yet, we have few ideas, but we have to discuss it. Now we can start buying clothes and all the baby stuff for her!

Now I’m thinking about our trip by the Baltic sea. We’re going there on Saturday! Two weeks of relaxing in Ustka city. We’re going to go to Słowiński National Park and there we’ll have our pregnancy photo session. I love that place, it reminds me of wonderful moments. That’s why we decided to make this session there. It’s probably the last trip we can organise before I have my baby, another we can make in next holidays (she’ll be 1 year old that time). So I have to relax as much as it’s possible! :)

I greet warmly all of you, I’ll write something, when we come back!
