What we have been doing...

since Mom got sick... 

we have been watching over her. It is hard work, so we take turns laying in the bed with her.

We also got in some help (as she was kitten sitting for human sister again.)
Mom is slowly getting better. The pain is starting to go away, there is quite a bit of scar tissue in her eye and the eye doctor is unsure of her prognosis for being able to see clearly again with it. For now, she can see light and shapes out of it. We will continue to keep all paws on deck watching out fur her!

Hi Kira and Scampi,
Oh you are very good to your sick Mom. We are pleased to read that at least she is not in so much pain, and we have fingers and paws crossed that her sight in the bad eye improves further.
Very best wishes from across the P.

Your comment freaked me out!!!! BOL Seriously. You said that mom is still going aww and I thought it was because she was in pain. We've been thinking about her and her unusual illness and are quite impressed by how well she's handling it.
Please feel free to say awwww any time you wish, over the kittens, as long as you are improving every day :)
And to answer your question: we're definitely getting less attention because of the kittens, but it's temporary and we'll just have to deal for now.

Excellent work taking care of your mom. Tell her we continue to hope for a full and complete recovery.

You all are the best medicine she could ask for! I sure hope your mom gets better and her eye heals super fast!

Momma will get better, fear not. The eyeball surgery can take some time to heal. Keep up the snuggling.

AWWW for your mom's great sense of humor. With an attitude like this, she'll bounce back sooner than anticipated. :)


PS Both Khyra and Kira should have their own kitten, not just borrowed ones...

I'm so glad that you're surrounded with loving animals during your recovery. I'm thinking of you, hoping that your vision improves in that eye. In the meantime, snuggle up with your furry friends.

Well. You know we've been absent. Doing all sorts of stuff with family. In Colorado. In the National Parks. On the road. And now in Florida (Panama City Beach). And through it all you've stuck with us ... we've been happy to see you've stopped by and left your pawprints.

We've been trying to do some catching up and feel bad that we didn't know about your moma's being sick and her eye surgery. We sure hope she is doing better and the prognosis is going to be good. We'll try to keep caught up to find out how she's doing ... and in the meantime send our very best wirey healing wishes.

Now ... we're here in Florida. Closer to your neck of the woods. And we have a question. How? Just how do you handle this heat with your thick wooly coat? We are hot hot hot!

This is amazing weather. Don'tcha think?

Trying to stay cool,
Jake and Fergs and Family


We hope your Mom starts feeling better soon. We know you will all take care of her.
