Mom first wanted to thank everyone for all the kind words. She gets so weepy, it is embarrassing, but she & I do thank you for all the purrs and good thoughts--it was quite unexpected and overwhelming, in the best of ways.
It has been mostly a good day. Earlier in the day, mom took me to the v-e-t, for a blood test. I did manage to get in a few kitty swear words to those trying to take the blood, but unfortunately they did not understand. Don't know the results of the blood test yet...but as a kitty, I always think positive, and as one my mom's favorite author's says, kitties are always in the "present." So, at this present moment life is good. There is a lovely monsoon thunderstorm rolling through the desert tonight. I'm one of those weird kitties that loves wind. I think I was "Super Kitty" in my last life. Just need a cape, with an "SK". Hope you all are doing well, and thanks again.
