Going Silent

Pumpkin is still alive, but she's lost her voice, so to speak. It happened within a couple days of her person going to the hospital. If she'd gone to the doctor like we'd tried to get her to do, she might still be alive today. But she was always afraid of ending up in a nursing home like her mother and cousin (plus she had no insurance), so she was afraid to go. Her mother died in a nursing home almost a couple years ago at ninety, but she only made it to sixty. But at least now the building where she lived won't be able to force her to do "community service" just because she moved in under the minimum age (people are considered near-elderly when they're between 55 and 61, according to the federal housing rules). And she won't be in a nursing home, so she got what she wanted in a way. So I guess my younger human and I will be pretty much alone at the quizzes we played with her and Pumpkin. So only my older human can be informed of our progress now.
