Most of you know this has been a tough couple of weeks at our house.
Hubby and I have been crying "UNCLE!" for two weeks now because of a nasty virus that has chosen us as hosts. Today I finally feel like a human being and he is close behind me.
That didn't come out quite right!
And our dear kitty Bliss sent us on a spin to the emergency vets for the past six days when she became covered head to toe in blood as she was grooming. She was severely anemic with a chance she wouldn't pull through. She barely escaped transfusions because she stayed borderline critical. She has been poked, prodded, ultrasounded and xrayed to the max and we still can't find a single reason for the bleeding. Unfortunately we were finding other things of concern which had us going back.
Long story short, miraculously, as soon as we got home from the hospital last night she turned the corner to wellness! I personally think St. Francis hitched a ride with us and I'm not a particularly religious person (in the traditional sense.)
Every leg is shaved in a different pattern but vain as she is, Bliss could care less.
She's happy to be home in the studio listening to Debussy and watching the rainbow maker dance across the room. And Mom is very happy ;)
Thank you all for your prayers and love for her recovery. Let's hope we're home free.
Now here are some other reasons why we're all getting better in this house.
The love ♥ of friends!
This wonderful orange polka-dotted box was on my front stoop this morning.
That Mim!! She emailed me and told me she was sending a little something my way, "kind of a Jewish mother thing" she said.
Look at this!
A wonderful container of homemade chicken soup, a big cup-shaped bowl filled with an assortment of mini brownies, a big thing of hot cocoa mix and a chocolate/espresso cake!
And oh, a chicken cookie complete with a little chickie.
How sweet and caring is this??
Thank you Mim! I'm looking forward to all of it. I feel so much better already!
This is definately chicken soup for the soul♥
More love arrived in the form of friends buying from other friends to send to friends!
I love that she chose the Bonsai for me.
Lori wrote the note and tag on recycled cardboard which makes it extra special.
Thank you ladies!!
