She chose Roxy. (Hubby liked that name best and she seemed to agree, though it came close to Bella. Lola was a sweet little girl and a beautiful cat, I miss her terribly. Glad you had a nice birthday and I know what you mean about memory :)
http://cheezburger.com/7459808512 // Hi Mary Jo & thanks so much for the BD card & wishes. I did have a GREAT day! Evidently I must party very hard every night as I can't ever remember one day from the next!! I was curious as to what the 'stuff' was on the cat's face & if it was one of your pictures, so I looked. I saw that you had used the same picture in an LOL about Lola & litter. It was a bittersweet feeling knowing what she went through & your loss of her, but that you still wanted to use her picture to send me a card. Made me feel special & I hope you always know how special you are to me. BTW--did you get my email? Have been wondering what name your last kitteh chose? Lubs & Hugs! Deb
Well, I didn't want to MAKE you cry, but I'm sure if I'd gone through the suffering you have for so long now, I'd be blubbering every day. And I do believe with all my heart that they all are together, well, & at complete peace & happiness. Much Lubs! Deb
I've seen it Mary Jo, so you don't have to send it to me. I am SO, SO sorry! My heart aches for you. Know that YOU are still in my prayers as I know you'll be having a hard time. Please let me know if I can do anything for you. You've been so special to me ever since Merlin. Seems like your pain has brought us together & it just keeps on. I love you, hon! I'm hugging you SO tightly right now--I hope you can feel it!
http://cheezburger.com/7088746496 // Mary Jo--First of all, please KNOW that I am not trying to push any 'religion' on you! This is part of a song that has not only been a favorite of mine, but a big comfort for YEARS! The 'storm' can be Steve's illness, his healing, your stamina through this already lengthy situation, emotional roller-coaster, if the money runs out before the month does, even if you locked your keys in your car! I've often found myself humming it in my 'storms' & have found I'm even doing so when you & Steve come into my thoughts. There are a few recordings of it on You-Tube, some good--some not, but I don't know if you have access when you have time or even care to fool with it. The words, to me, are comforting enough. I hope they will be so to you, too. Much love, hugs, prayers!
EDing messages--we all have good days & then bad days--try not to let that discourage you. I tend to agree with you about him not wanting to 'perform on cue'--especially if he doesn't like the doc. From all I know about EEGs (which isn't all that much), he can't 'fake' that at all. The brain activity would still show whether it was a bad or good day with him. I might even suggest another EEG or 2 to compare with. Much lubs & hugs to "y'all"!
Mary Jo--I think it's wonderful to hear of Steve's activities to you (& also to Tuck). To me, that proves a LOT! And at least the respiratory therapist saw it & hopefully documented it. Don't understand why he won't respond to the Dr.--maybe he doesn't like him! He'll eventually learn of Steve's 'good activity'. Just keep his spirits up & I still pray for you both, healing for Steve & esp. for strength & stamina for you during this time. Hugs&Lubs for both of you! Deb
Still in my thoughts & prayers! Try to remember how much you are loved by all here! Wish I could do more--I feel so helpless! Don't worry about a reply--I KNOW you've got WAY too much to do! So Many Lubs & Hugs to "Y'all"!
