MY CAT is home!

on January 2, 2007 - 2:50pm

Oreo is home - what a stressful afternoon. We called the vet at 2:30 and after the 2nd Xray, she wasn't concerned anymore. The gas that had built up had passed through along with the barium liquid. She diagnosed him with "stress colitis". Austin and I are SO EXCITED. Oreo is resting! Sounds like a good idea, all of this worrying gave me a great big headache. I have my Mary Kay meeting tonight so I think I'll take a quick nap so I can look my best! I'm just soooooo relieved!

Oreo Cookie...............

on January 2, 2007 - 10:13am

I'm so sad today. My cat Oreo is sick. He's been a part of our family since my kids were 4 and 7 - Nine years. He acted funny all day yesterday; all puffed up and in a ball and would only move to throw up. My son Austin and I were up on and off through the night with him. They took an Xray and there may be an obstruction of somekind in his intestine. He had to stay at the vet clinic and they'll take another around 2:00. Hopefully the gas bubble has moved, then that means it's just a virus in his gut; if it hasn't, well, we'll go from there. I'm sorry to go on and on about this, but we're are MAJOR CAT LOVERS (animals of ALL kinds, really) and this is just breaking my heart. I tend to worry too much, but I have to admit I'm quite scared. He is usually so personable - and yesterday he was a totally different cat - he hardly lifted his head to look at us....normally he meows with a greeting if we'd walk into the room he's in. The thought of losing him......I have to STOP; I'm getting ahead of the game - maybe he's just fine. Time will tell.

I'm more concerned about Austin, he's really been his cat from the beginning. When he's in Austin's arms, he completely surrenders to anything. They have such a bond; this would break his heart too; and you know as a mother you feel your kids' heart-ache too.

I hope some of you out there are passionate animal people and can understand what I'm saying.......there's nothing like the relationship of a good pet - they're like our kids.

I know Josh is very proud of his puppy, Sweeney. He'd know my heart........what a special guy.

OK - well, I better spend some time with Austin. He's suppose to be in school, but he came home "sick"....he's had a head cold, but I have a feeling he couldn't concentrate with the thought of Oreo being sick at home. Oh well, he's only in the 8th grade and attends our parochial school - they'd understand. I don't have a bit of guilt letting him come home.

I missed the funeral of Pres. Ford this morning. I was hoping to catch that; I bet it was moving.

I haven't had a chance to wish all of you Grobanite Friends a Happy New Year! Many blessings to you and yours!

If you find it in your heart to send positive thoughts our way for Oreo, that would be great!

NOW I'M REALLY REALLY REALLY SAD

on December 29, 2006 - 8:59am

THANK YOU PC FOR LETTING ME KNOW what Josh sang........but now I could just SCREAM. OMJosh, Hannah and I were watching Phantom the other night and I said to her, imagine Josh singing one of these songs (we both especially like "Point of no Return")...and then I go and miss him singing "Music of the Night"........I'm speechless! SO disappointed in myself - I even had it written in my date book. OK when I'm in a better mood, I'll be back........

I Missed Josh :( ..... I'm SO MAD at myself

on December 28, 2006 - 11:57am

I am SO MAD at myself. I missed Josh on the Kennedy Center Honors Tuesday night. I turned it on at 9:10 and was hoping he hadn't performed yet. Can someone out there tell me what he sang. I truly almost cried. Just too much going on here all the time to actually take time to sit and watch TV. Hope you all had a wonderful peace-filled Christmas celebration. We celebrated with my husband's family on Christmas day and will celebrate with my side on Saturday. I always look forward to that one - we laugh our fool heads off all the while we're together! So, it's been awhile since I've written.......I'll have to check my friends list and see what you're all up to! Kinda quiet around here today, just me and my 13 year old....I'm kinda dragging with a sore throat - don't want to be sick for Saturday, so think I'll just take it easy today and "drink lots of liquids" and suck on cough drops.

I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas ......STILL

on December 21, 2006 - 10:14pm

It finally snowed a little bit today! HUGE flakes for about 10 minutes...then just back to sleet; but it sure brightened my morning. Sounds like it'll be all melted by Monday, though. Oh well, we take what we can get! I got the neatest Christmas gift in the mail today! An 8X10 pic of "you know who" - yep, Josh! He's so handsome. My niece ordered it through allposters.com on-line. I had never heard of that site, but you'll bet I'll visit it and see if there's more pics to google over :) I opened it up and it took my breath away! Check it out! Tomorrow I'm spending the day baking...I haven't done any of that yet - sometimes I think that's OK though, because if I do it too early, sometimes it just doesn't stay fresh, you know! I've made tons of fudge since Thanksgiving......but that's given away or made for special occasions and eaten right away! I must say, it's my specialty. All of the sudden I'm sleepy; and being an insomniac I have to take advantage of sleepy time; so I'll sign off for now and write again in the morning! Good night all my Grobanite friends! Happy dreams!
