It looks like I’m only blogging about sad things lately, but I just need to share this with you. When I moved in with my boyfriend he already had a cat. I love Dime but I also wanted one of my own. So there he was, my sweet little Johny. Johny was curious and he liked everyone. I loved him, so much. But today we had to put him to sleep for good. Yesterday he got ill. He was puking and I don’t know what he has been eating but it looked strange and wasn’t something we had given him. It also contained some elastic. He was walking around like he was drunk and I was so worried. Then he came on my bed and layed on my chest. He was lying down for a little while and after that he moved to the other side of the bed. I felt like he was saying goodbye and I panicked. I called the vet and we brought him there. She said his kidneys were big and it looked like he was poisoned. Especially because he had been puking all kind of rubbish. We left him there so he could be treated. This morning we got a phone call. Johny was not doing well and they found blood in his urine. When we got there he was more dead than alive. I held his foot and with his last bit of strength he moved his head to my head. We had to put him to sleep, we could not let him suffer any more.
I can’t stop crying about him, I loved him so much. We will miss all the energy is brought to our home. We will miss his hugs and his love. I don’t know what he ate, and I will never be sure what exactly happened to him. But I feel angry. This was my sweet little Johny, the most loving cat you can imagine and now he is gone. He was just 1,5 years old..
There are so many things I want to make before the baby is here. I know I’ve still got six months to do everything but there is so much to do and I’ve got so little energy. I’m still not doing anything at the moment. But I’m 3 months pregnant now and nausea isn’t as bad as it used to be so I’m hoping I will get my energy and my health back soon. For now I want to show you 8 homemade things I really need for the baby. Some things I can make myself, but for some I need some help (I can’t crochet). If you know any good baby crafts let me know! I can always use a little more inspiration!
First thing I need (want), but can’t make myself, is a crocheted blanket. I love the colorful and soft look of it. For this one I have to ask my mom. I never learned how to crochet and I’m still telling myself that I really need to learn the craft. I just never find the time to do it. I love the colors of this blanket that I found on Flickr. I get happy just by looking at it!

I wanted to give you a little update on how things are at the moment. I know I haven’t been blogging for a while now but there is a very good reason for that: we are expecting our first child! We are really exited about it and really looking forward to July 23. That’s the due date. You may wonder why I didn’t post because being pregnant alone isn’t really a good reason. Well I’m having extreme pregnancy nausea. I’ve been in the hospital for almost a month (I have been home shortly for Christmas) but now I’m home again. I’m still not feeling completely better but I’m feeling a lot better then before. I’m getting feed by a tube that goes trough my nose to my bowels and that makes it all a lot easier.
So for now you shouldn’t expect a lot of posts from me because I’m not feeling well enough just jet. But please don’t forget about me and my blog because I will be back! XO Wilma
Well it’s a long story… It started with me getting sick and lying in bed. I couldn’t even hold water inside. Than besides that I started to feel pain in my left hip. The nausea was getting better because of the medication I got from my doctor, but my hip just went worse and worse. By Saturday I couldn’t walk without a lot of help and I couldn’t stand up strait. I was in pain the whole day. Sunday it was still the same.
At that time I thought it would be a good idea to consult a doctor. The doctor send me to the hospital and I had to take some tests and pictures. Since then I stayed the hospital. Yesterday I finally saw a doctor who could do something about the pain. They say it’s an ignition. The cause is not known yet but they took some blood today to check. I’ve got an injection in my hip for it and today as by miracle the pain is as good as gone. Only thing is: I have to stay on my bed for two days and I’ve been told that if everything goes well I will be home at Friday.
So there you have it. The reason why I didn’t blog for over a week. I will be back blogging as soon as I’m able to do so! I now have my notebook here with me in the hospital so I can do some things. New DIY projects have to wait unfortunately but just wait… I will be back soon! XO Wilma
