Poor Misty

Well if it's not one thing it's another. I'm feeling much better after getting over having the flu. All the kids were sick last week too and were home from school. It just ran through the house. Alan was the only one not to get it so far. Then on Sunday my poor cat Misty, took a turn for the worse and is just not doing so well. She was so very sick and I have been sitting with her for two straight days. I won't go into all the gross details but she is not doing well. Though she has her good moments and her not so good moments. She is 15 years old and I hope this is not the end for her. I have 3 cats (Misty, Mandee who are sisters and Ellie Mae who is just 2 years old) and Misty really is my favorite. She is always by my side. When I was sick she always sat right by me the whole time. I want to do the same for her. I know some must think hey it is just a cat but they really are so much more than that. There there to listen all the time. The love so unconditionally. We spent 15 years together. I just can't imagine life without her. I just buried my other cat just a couple of weeks ago...Binkie who was 18 years old and died of cancer. I am so not ready to do this all over again with Misty but I will be there for her no matter what.

Here is a picture of her taken tonight after I had to bathe her again after an accident she had. She even let me blow dry her. She was shivering so bad I wrapped her in a blanket and put her in her bed. Poor thing.
Misty, not looking so good.

Misty, all curled up in her blanket in her bed.

Well not a whole lot else going on. Just trying to get ready for the holidays. I am having Christmas Eve at my house and hope that it is a nice evening. I have been doing lots of shopping online mostly. With me being sick last week, I just sat in bed and ordered things and wow this week I have my UPS guy working hard delivering many packages. Today I had deliveries from UPS, Fed-Ex and DHL. Crazy.

Hope everyone is doing well. I am so sorry that I haven't been by to visit. I hope to do that this week. I think of you all all the time and want to catch up.
