For those of you that haven't yet read Finney's diary, mom's uncle passed away tonight. He was a frail man who was paralyzed most of his adult life with MS and recently had a heart attack and was diagnosed with lung cancer. He was in the hospital and for some reason was released and passed away tonight at home. Mom is very, very sad. And that's why we DON'T want you to stop helping me celebrate my wonderful week! Please Don't stop! We need this so bad. This is the 3rd close relative mom has lost in less than 5 months.
She's supposed to go tomorrow morning for her steroid shot, they had a cancellation. Now she doesn't know what is happening. Grammy and grampy are supposed to give her a ride home. I'm sure they still can. But anyways, the point is, she's very sad right now but does NOT want to stop celebrating my wonderful, wonderful and special week with all of you! That's the last thing she needs right now. Tomorrow is only Thursday, we still have a few days left of pawtying and having fun. So let's do that okay?
If there's anything mom has learned in this year especially, it's don't waste any time! Be with the ones you love and enjoy each other! Comfort her, love her and let her know you're there. Because we know you are all so terrific at doing that. You are a spectacular support system. But also don't stop coming here with me and laughing and having fun because that would be a dishonor to mom's uncle who never got the chance to do so many of the things we all do everyday.
But he is right now. He's flying and soaring and screeching across the sky like a shooting star! We know it! Mom would go nuts if she didn't have her friends here to turn to. She would literally be in a ball depressed. It's because of you all that she isn't. So thank you! I'm gonna go and find him now if I can. Maybe he can come and visit mom with me. She'd like that.
Luv you all
Alex and her family
Our sincere and heartfelt condolences to your mom, Alex!
We are ready to pawrty...sort of!
We are sad, too...cause we just lost our Grammy, and even though she was almost 93, we will still miss hearing about how she was doing and hearing her on the phone. She too is now released from all of her earthly frailties...
But in reality, the life keeps on, even amongst the sad things...a long time ago on the day meowmy lost her 'Opa' there was a great grandchild born to him...and on another occasion of sadness there was a wedding and so on!
And even as Grammy lay in a hospice bed, her aunt was celebrating 92 years of good health.
So try and convince your mom to get this shot, because with all the extra stress of the next few days and weeks she will ultimately be glad of it, and who knows what God has now planned for the 14th...
OK, enough preaching, MOL! Time to go and find that case of catinis, and wheat-grass cookies!
We're right here for your momma every step of the way, no matter how long it takes!!
As for a laugh, here's the first joke I can think of:
An Irishman walked out of a bar...
Hee Hee!! Luv, Tink & Snow
Normally I'd say NO grains but I'm an angel now and I can eat whatever the heck I want darn it! MOL. The catinis sound heavenly!!! Tink! MOL!!! You're so funny and we just love you to pieces.
aww sweetie sending lots of love and prayers and a brush of angel wings to your mom she has sure been through some stuff this year. Praying she will come through this stronger than ever."what doesn't break you will make you stronger"
God bless your mom and family
love skids, mom and the family
Sending your momma lotsa purrs.
Purrs for your mom, Alex. We love you guys!!
Thank you everyone. Mom is getting ready to go for her shot. We'll let you know how it goes.
Sending your Mom lots of purrs of comfort during this difficult time.
So sorrie to hear of your Uncle's passing.
We too, are sending you peace, comfort & strength at this delicate time in your life.
Giving yew a big hugg Big Huggs coming yur way!
Purrs & purrayers,
So sad to hear this. You have certainly had alot of bad things happen lately. Loss is never easy - but yes there are so many of us here for you, as you have been here for so many of us! purrs for you & your family. Tigger, Maizy & Smitty
Thanks everybody. Mom hopes this is it now!! Mom's friend Barb who is a doctor said that if he died that fast (within minutes while mom's aunt was in the bathroom) that he was unconscious by that time and never knew what happened. That makes mom feel better.
We agree with WeeBeesSiamese! life does go on and things change all the time....we send your Mom are deepest sympathies and she is in our thoughts & prayers...
Mom needs to make sure she takes care of herself...being sad and stressed won't help her back so she needs to get the shot.
We are here for you!
sending our love and hugs
Already got it today Xena! Mom is all set. It was a LONG LONG LONG day though! Sheesh! The doctor was running late and mom, grammy and grampy were there for 3 hours! The shot only took 15 minutes!!!
Hi sweet angel girl,
Sorry I wasn't able to come back last night to keep celebrating. It was a little sad to be light hearted with the news about your uncle. We'll stop back tomorrow to pawty some more. Hey, where did the music go? Your mom put some cool music on your page...Hey did I ever tell you my mom had a girl cat named Alex when she was growing up?
See you later,
Hi Gumpy, that's okay. Mom went for her shot, they moved up her appointment. So we couldn't have stayed on the puper anyways. But we promise to do some pawtying today and for the remainder of my COTW honor! I'm sorry we took the music off. Mommy was actually getting annoyed because every time we go a prezzie and we went to look at what they wrote, we were listening to the same song over and over! Mommy will put some new ones on there later today and then make it so it's on a shuffle. NO! You never told us that about your kitty Alex. MOL. What a coinkidink! MOL
My Dear sweet Alex, you know, my furmilies have always shared two most important things: Don't ever stop believing, and there is always time for pawtyin'!~ Kinda like there is always room for jello? Only mom does't really like jello all that much! HA! Maybe a lil fruit in it? Not the green kind!
Thought you might get a chuckle outta that 'n yeps, I can be crazy sometimes! But it's ok!~ We need to be crazy here!
Anyway, we are still sharing your grand moments. I hope you found your mom's uncle and he will party with us. It's sad that your mommy has had so many deaths to face. Mom even said that it's so sad anymore when we come on Catster to play, too many of our wonderful furiends getting sick 'n all. I know us angels are all purrin' fur them all.
Congrats Alex .Sending your mom our sympathy .My mom too has had alot of loss.Both her parents died a year apart from each other from ovarian and lung cancer then she lost her beloved cat Harley of 21 years this year.Then surprise I jumped into her life and give her so much to worry about getting into she doesn;t have time to be sad.But at times she still is so then I do something silly like a summersault and she starts to laugh again.
Congrats again .
Awww Hunter, your meowmy is so sweet. And it is furry true that we kitties come at just the right time. Mommy knows darned well if she didn't have us here she'd be SO much more miserable and depressed. Lately we've been playing a lot and going bananas and she loves watching us do that. It makes her laugh so much. Tell your mommy to really enjoy those moments and to remember that when you're being a little brat! MOL. Harley is here with me and he's so furry happy you're there, he sent you to her. So sorry about your momma's parents. Our mommy worries now about grampy and grampy. It was grammy's brother but both of them were always very close to him.
Smokey Joe, my mommy likes jello and she JUST came back from the store and now she has a craving for jello and she doesn't have any. MOL. and yes, we absolutely need to laugh and be crazy!!! For sure that's what we all need in this world!
Aw Tell Harley at te bridge Mom still misses him something awful.Mom believes he must have sent me to because her and Mom says I,m the spitting image of him personality and all.
Harley is probably laughing now because Dasd says I made Harley look well behaved compared to me.But I saw Harleys photos and he was always into something so I don;t believe Dad.mol
It hasn't been that long since she lost Harley but even so, it never truly heals. btw, Harley is ROLF right now!!!
Hunter, dood, that's what it's all about. Mom got Milo after I went to the bridge after only 5 yrs, course no one know's when FIP will get a good fur down. 'n Now, beside's Milo, she had to go 'n get Mallee too! Mallee is all of a rug runner, table bouncin', blanket chewing, always hungry gurl! Milo get' so frustrated with her. But, that is what keeps her busy 'n her mind off losing me so young. 'n Ya know, Harley DID send you to your mommy!
MOL! Good kitties ALWAYS get into things! I did too! It's part of growing up 'n being loved. Harley lived a furry long 'n wonderful life! He is purring down on your mom tonight! Mommy does get so sad still about me being gone.
