Mom is back with Lobo. She was totally wiped out. Sick and tired and done in.
Lobo was sick for most of the trip. He had diarrhoea 8 times in the back of the truck. Mom's cold got worse during the trip, then she got the flu. And, it got cold outside and also snowed a lot on their way back. Lobo did get better before the return drive, but Mom didn't. She is still sick.
But, her brother took good care of them and they got lots of really good visiting done. Nephew is very well! He is his old self and was cracking jokes and teasing Mom about being old, etc. He is skinny! He lost 35 pounds and only recently has started eating solid food. But, he is out of rehab and home to stay now. He still has some recovering to do but all is very well with him now. He has two very young brothers whom he takes very good care of. And, a tiny nephew, whom he is really good with. (His sister's little baby.) Mom visited with both her sisters and both her brothers and her best friend since elementary school. And she had lots of cats to play with. Uncle has 4 beautiful cats. Auntie has two now and Mom made sure to visit with them just before she left for home.
Now, I am helping her type this. We missed her. Kitcat was all over Lobo when he came home last night. Kitcat & I both slept part of the night with Mom. She stayed in bed for almost 12 hours!
We are glad your furmily is all back together again...now you need to help your Mom get all better.
Nice that Lobo was feeling better.
We are happy that despite all the setbacks your Mon has a great visit. How wonderful that her nephew is doing so much better, to!
Get well greetings to your Mom, and purrs from us, too.

Thank you Pipo & Minko! The nephew was the reason for the visit. It was so amazing to see how well he was. Mom called him the miracle boy and he agreed. And, super cool, at that visit he was showing his two younger brothers how to properly pet a cat. Uncle has 4 of them and the young boys had not been around cats. He had them properly admiring and stroking uncle's kitties.
Meowmy used to do that with our unfurbros when they were babies...he would take a tiny hand and do the petting with it, so they soon knew how to do it themselves...though when they were toddlers and impetuous they still wanted to carry them wrong, or pull their tails...well, it didn't last too long, meowmy saw to that!
Your nephew sounds like a thoughtful and caring young man.
He is totally sweet! When we weren't sure if he would make it, his school friends wanted to know more about him as a young boy. Mom sent them this video:
Even as a young kid he was nice to animals.
That *was* too cute!
The barking pup even made our dog-guy bark along!!
You can sure tell how sweet our nephew is by how he was way back then. Very kind and gentle. We are so grateful that he has a second chance at life.
Although it was a tough journey for Lobo and your mum it must have been totally worth it to see nephew doing so well. I'm sure lots of cats purring (and do dogs send tail wags?) for him must have helped. And now you're all back together which is the best way to be! purrs Josie and Toby
Glad they're home! Hope your momma feels better!
Get well Momcat . Glad your home with our furends and your furbabies.
Thank you everyone! Kitcat and I are treating Mom real well.
