Please consider lighting one of Abby's candles.
Here: Abby's Candles
Abby always got up with me while I prepared myself for work.
One morning I had this string and she was fascinated with it.
So I attached it to the back of bathroom door.
And the rest as they say is history!
She is just too adorable!!
Now you want to know the rest of the story?
That string is still hanging on the back of the bathroom door.
Until they take me out of this house, I will leave it there.
I retired in 2009, so getting ready in the this bathroom became a moot point. I know Abby didn't played with that string after 2009. But this will always be a lovely memory. At some point I will show you our other string game that we played. She was so cute to watch as she scampered around with her roly poly Manxie body. Well, you know I think she was adorably cute all the time.
Even to this moment Abby girl.
Momma loves you baby

Sunday we took Boo on a prearranged trip to the ER. The same ER that Abby was in. Boo had to have a special test and they were able to process it on site and it was simply easier for our Vet who was on call and for us. What I didn't expect was the overwhelming punch in the gut memories to flood all over me. We had to wait to be seen as there were several people ahead of us. The first couple who were in the back when we came in reminded me of the first time I had to leave Abby overnight. I could see the tear stained worry in the Mom's face and I watched as they let them go back and say goodbye (for the night I assumed) and I remembered, oh goodness how I remembered, doing that with Abby. I saw two men sitting with a very young, but injured orange tabby who reminded me of a young Ping. I saw them go in with their kitty, but they didn't leave with him. I was afraid to ask. There were several couples there with sick and elderly dogs and I saw the hurt, the fear, the sadness. All those things that are universal to pawrents who share that gut wrenching feeling of confusion and heartache. I was so glad to be able to go home with our baby Boo. Hopeful for her, but so many who come to the ER don't have that luxury of going home again. How well I remember.
Boo ionized calcium testing shows a true high elevation in her calcium level. We now have to have further blood work done to eliminate certain conditions. This will take some time to get back from the lab. So I won't know results once we do the blood tests for a few weeks. Also wanted to let everyone know our Daddy is going in for Surgery mid-October, so we can already see that October is shaping up to be a very busy month.
