Some good news and some bad news

Well hello their kitties!

So River got to report to you all about how mommy called home after having a scary scary dream the other night? Well, turns out the dream was predicting something, but not about us. Mommy got a really bad fever and her knee swelled up. Mommy use to be a dancer when she was younger until she fell and broke her knee. She's had many surgeries on it and just barely avoided getting a bionic knee by low impact running for nearly 2 hours every day and keeping her height weight ideal. Anyways, too many years of living in dry CA has unprepared her knee for humidity and all that high impact walking. She got really hurt and her and daddy decided they would rather trade in the tickets and fly home early and save money that way then drag it out in Paris. They have been away from home for a long time and they did have a really great time, but they've decided to come home early.

The good news? My mommy will be here in 48 hours!!! I can't wait! My belly needs a good mommy rubbing. Aunt Courtney is excited, I'm excited, River is happy dancing. We are sad mommy got hurt, but ever so happy she is coming home. Aunt Courtney is great, but mommy... is MOMMY!

The bad news is clearly that mommy got hurt. Also, we don't know if you know this, but there are apparently no good people vets in France in August. They all go on vacation. Very strange. So mommy would rather come home. She feels fairly certain that once she is home everything will resolve itself, but she'd rather be home for the recovery. I will have to do my best to take care of her, although I'm bad at taking care of knees, I always want to be on laps and that hurts the knee sometimes cause I'm a full bodied gal!

Well kitties, I know it is mixed news. But the good news is mommy is feeling all right right now about all of it. She got lots of days in Paris, she is only losing 4, she got to do everything she wanted, and she is fairly confident the knee will recover quickly when she isn't walking cobblestones every day in the humid air. Me, River, and Aunt Courtney agree, we are just so happy she is coming back. We are secretly really happy, although we told mommy, so it isn't much of a secret now is it? Opps... well, we just love her so much!

See you all sooner than expected kitties! Don't worry too much, mommy says she'll be fine and is just going to be happy to be home safe and sound!

Your mommy is probably right to cut her trip short and come home to heal her swollen & sore knee. I sure am glad that she was able to visit Paris. I'm sure she was able to see some pawsome sights and will come home with tons of fond memories. You and River will need to be on your best behavior and let her rest for awhile. I know it will be hard, since you will be ever so glad to see her. I understand that your Aunt Courtney took very good care of you but there is no person like "Mommy"! Sure sounds like your Mommy is a "keeper".
Looking forward to seeing you and River more often.
Hugs, purrs & sandpaper kisses,

Oh River, I'm happy to hear that your mommy and daddy will be home very soon but sad to hear that your mommy is hurting. I'm sure they had a wonderful time in Paris but now she needs to rest and heal her swollen knee. They are going to be so happy to see you all so make sure you show her love but give her some room to recover. Can't wait to hear about all their adventures as well as yours!

Hugs and purrs,
Simon & Reuben(an angel)
