Unfortunately this has been the worst birthday weekend I've had possibly ever. I wanted to spend the last half of the week cleaning in preparation for my parents visiting. Thursday evening I scoured the bathroom and kitchen, did dishes, and mopped. Thursday night (thanks I guess to the pinesol I used to mop the floors) I had a grand mal seizure in my sleep. Woke up about 1:30am on Friday looking like (WARNING: BLOOD) this. Apparently I beat my head repeatedly against my little table next to my bed after falling out of bed. There was blood all over the table, floor, and even smeared down the hallway and throughout the bathroom. I guess after the convulsions stopped I made my way in there, tried to clean up a little (towel was bloodstained), then went back to bed, but I don't remember any of it.

So I missed work on Friday and slept pretty much through the entire day. Saturday I woke up early to try and finish the cleaning I wanted to do before I had to pick my parents up at the train station around noon. The big thing I wanted to do was vacuum out my couch as my cats shed endlessly on it. Turns out my hand-vac has stopped working. I've only used the thing maybe four times and now the roller on it won't turn and it barely generates suction. So I clean the couch off as best I can with a lint brush and pick my folks up. It had just started snowing about when I left home. Pretty much turns into a blizzard over the course of me getting downtown, getting them, and having lunch with them. Took well over an hour to drive back to my apartment, a trip that normally only takes half an hour. We end up having to cancel the plans to meet my girlfriend's family for dinner that night as the roads are too bad for driving, but we reschedule for lunch on Sunday.

Sunday things are looking nice, we head out, have lunch with my girlfriend and her parents (our parents had never met each other before), and it was nice. Then I take my parents back into the city and drop them off at the train station so they can get home. Drive back to my place AND MY APARTMENT DOOR IS WIDE OPEN. It failed to latch when we left like five hours prior. My boy-cat is missing. I see footprints in the snow by the stairs down where he came down, looked around, but then the prints turn around and to back to the stairs. But he's not in my apartment. He's not in the landing area, not in ground level, and I've walked the streets around my place and can't find him anywhere.

Fucking terrible birthday.

 

EDIT: Cat's back! I was heading out for my third search of the immediate neighborhood and he had found his way to the flowerbed by the stairs. He was scared and wouldn't come to me, so I had to chase him a little before I caught him, but he's back and no worse for the wear.

Oh my god Tim, holy cow, I am so glad you're ok.  Glad Toes is back as well.  Hell of a way to end a week, birthday or not.  

Man, anything else I want to say just doesn't seem genuine enough.  I wish I could give you all the hugs ever.

 Holy shit dude.  I'm glad your cat is back, but are you okay?  Fuck man, let us know if there's anything we can do to help.

Jebus, that's horrible. Happy you found Toes. I know I'd probably be worried sick if either of my cats went missing like that. It sucks that these seizures keep happening despite medication too. Maybe should rearrange bedroom so you don't hit your head like that against any other furnitures? I mean, yeah, you'd probably still hit the bed or the ground possible but at least could minimize sharp furniture edges a bit.

I'm definitely throwing out the pinesol I've got and will be looking for something with less... ammonia I guess, or whatever else is in it... for future mopping. I have no doubt that it was that which agrivated my condition.

I'm glad to hear your cat knew enough to come home, at least, Mish. Sorry to hear your birthday was so crappy.

I'm just really glad that you are - in the grand scheme of things - okay and well!
