Run Free Sweet Friend

Graphic by Zoolatry
It is with great sadness as I learned today that my dear old friend, Eric, has run off to the bridge. I will miss you so much. It is not good by but until someday we meet again. Forever run and play free of the limitations that we find here at times.

Update: It's been a long 16 days since mom had her first surgery. That surgery went fine and she was well on her way to recovery. But it all came to a quick hault. She had been released to come home and was on the road to recovery when on the 7th she could not keep anything down and was in pain, no relief was in sight. A trip to er was done and she stayed there for 17 hours. She was released then things got worse after a few more days at home. We think the er group missed the ball and on Friday night another trip was taken to the er and finally the doctors found a bowl obstruction. Another surgery was needed and she was admitted to the hospital for another five days. Needless to say she is pretty worn out. Mom is taking it easy and just concentrating on getting stronger each day. She still is not eating much. The dad here is a fantastic caregiver and is taking wonderful care of mom. I am spending a lot of snuggle time with her making she gets lots of rest.

We are taking things a day at a time here, sometimes a half a day. We can only ask that she gets strong and better with each day.

Thanks to everyone for your concerns, cards, and healing wishes.

Nurse Gracie Report

Gracie taking a well deserved break.
Being a nurse is very hard work.
Thanks for all your kind words and purrs. The mom is doing pretty good. She must take things easy and she forgets. She forgot today that she wasn't to pick me up and did. Now her side is hurting. If she tries to pick me up again I will have to bite her. (Please note that it won't be a big hard bite but just a little nip) A kitie has to do what a kittie needs to do.
Our greenhouse out by the swimming pool, which seems to be missing right now.
ps: Posting some photos our our first snow storm of this winter. The city had 10 l/2" of the white stuff dumped. A lot of drifing due to the winds out here where we live. It really is beautiful.
My first encounter with the snow.
Not sure why I am just now seeing first hand what snow is. Mom brought some inside for me to check it out. It was really tasty but terribly cold. I am soooooooooooo happy to be an inside kittie!!

Mom's Update

Mom came on on Thursday evening and the dad and I have been taking the bestest of the best care of her.
Everything went well with the surgery and now it is just the passing of time until she will start to be herself. You can be assurred that I am keeping a close eye on her making sure she does exactly what the doctor and nurses told her to do.
Keep in mind that mom isn't always patient, especially in the recovery phase of things, and she wants be be better like yesterday and that isn't going to happen. I am making sure she gets all the zzzzs and snuggles she can get. Dad is keeping the loves coming along with the food and meds.

Thanks everyone for your kind words and prayers of support. It means a lot to us and when mom is feeling better she will visit with all of you that stopped by.
