GCT: On track
I was sick as a dog following the bites and scratches I got during the horde vaccination. My hand swelled up to twice a normal size and I felt like I had the flu times ten. This was despite the fact that I took all the remaining antibiotic pills (yeah, ok, so they were two years expired and thus less effective but of the sort that don’t become dangerous after expiration–some do and can kill ya so don’t take expired meds unless you have an expert doctor to advise you) that I had on hand. Yesterday I went and got an injection and I am feeling almost 50%, which is a great improvement.
I’m waiting for Ronen to call back but in our first call today he let me know that the transport carriers have all arrived, the large size ‘baby changing’ pamper-like squares also arrived that we’ll need to line the carriers with, he’s laundered and cut up enough of his personal bedsheets and blankets to provide for one change. I’m washing bedsheets and blankets like crazy to cut up for additional changes and to provide ‘hoods’ for the carriers to help the cats from not freaking out.
I’m in charge of food. I’ve got to bring dry food for the cats on the plane and 48 cans of wet fancy feast for the drive, as well as water for the cats.
But, I’ve also got to bring all the food for us humans. Since Ronen and I are both vegetarians and we can’t bring any fruit or vegetables, I’m going to make up a bunch of cheese sandwiches. I’m not sure what to do about liquids (for us — if necessary we can use the tap water from the restroom for the cats, though I’d rather not). I don’t know if I can bring unopened cans of soda on-board. I don’t know if I can include lettuce or pickles or olives on the sandwiches. We aren’t even sure that plain bread with cheese will be allowed through. If necessary (e.g., if the sandwiches are confiscated) we can manage 20 or so hours without food or liquid. Gah, not a pleasant prospect but definitely survivable.
