Hi everyone! Mommy is just getting a chance to sit down and write me a diary for my gotcha day. She said sometimes it feels like a dream with me. Like everything we went through together from the minute she called me her own, to the minute I left her. It was 8 years ago today that she took me in her arms and let herself be my mommy. Time has no boundaries and makes no sense. Sometimes it feels like it was yesterday and other times like it was a million years ago. Just writing this is hard, in the past she didn't like to acknowledge my gotcha day because it was just a reminder that I left her too soon. But it was the happiest day of both of our lives. And the second happiest will be someday when we can be together again and I can purr softly on her cheek, kiss her and nuzzle her. I want to thank all my wonderful friends for all the prezzies (which I will do personally by the weekend), but mostly for the lovely and sweet messages that go with them. It means the world to us and we don't know what we'd do without all of you to help make this day easier for us.
On another note, mommy went for her MRI last week. She went to the doctor this morning for a follow up and he said she's got disc ostephyte complex (bone spurs), but very mild. Hey Newman! Mommy has spurs if you need to borrow them for your cowboy outfit. MOL. He showed her the results and said they weren't too bad but you could see how one disc was much more inflamed than the others. They are going to do an epidural injection (steroid) but the soonest they can do it is not until the 14th of this month! JEEEEEZZ! She's been suffering long enough already! But he's a busy guy and doesn't do this stuff every day so she has to wait. They did put her on a cancellation list though. But he said that it should really take care of it and help alot because she responded to oral prednisone. So once this is all over he encouraged her to get some exercise and strengthen her back.
In the meantime she's been working hard on the website, helping other kitties, playing with Finney and Lacey more to make up for all that time she couldn't and trying to at least get outside while it's been nice out. It's super nice today! What a crazy snowstorm they had on earth over the whole northeast last weekend. That was nuts! Way too early. I tried to get old man winter to knock it off, I even went and pinched his bum with my fingernail. MOL. He didn't like that too much, no sense of humor. But he was out of line! All these nature gods and goddesses that head up the storms, the nice weather and everything, they all have their schedules mixed up. They need to stop this crazy weather stuff.
Anyways, that's it for now I think, nothing else much happening to talk about. Too many fleas here still lately so mom's just been getting other things done. But we wanted to thank everybody for helping us get through this day.
And Linus, please go home honey! PLEASE. (a note to Linus' mommy: he's NOT here at the bridge with us so don't stop looking!) I know it's greedy to want another miracle after we had so many lately. Specially with Ingen being found and going home. But we love Linus and his family just as much, we can't stand to see his family missing him. Miranda I hope you're eating more lately. I know you miss your brofur. I'm still looking for him honey, I'm not giving up!
Big whisker kisses to everyone!
Luv and smooches
