The Angels called and he heard their song of welcome…..
My very good and very sweet friend Sharon of Friends Furever said the long goodbye to her husband Bill yesterday. He’d been hospitalized for two months and had been on the ventilator for a long time – the doctors did all they could but Bill’s struggle to overcome was not enough to keep him here. He passed into the arms of the Lord yesterday afternoon after the vent was removed.
I know Sharon would appreciate your words of comfort……..and thanks to Ann Adamus we have a beautiful badge to honor the love Bill and Sharon shared for so long………you can click on it and visit Sharon’s blog if you like. Sharon was so brave……their love will live on in her heart forever………..that’s what love is – FOREVER.
This is our regular Friday post………even though we have broken hearts…..
Fill In The Blanks
Here I am! Today is Friendly Fill-In Friday………..Friendly Fill-Ins co-hosted by McGuffys’ Reader and 15andMeowing. Each week we have FOUR sentences with blanks and we fill them in and SHARE. You’d be surprised what you learn about people this way and it’s a lot of fun too. If you click on the badge above, it goes to McGuffy’s and you can use her Linky Tool to add your blog address in if you’re going to “fill-in” and share……………
This week I’m letting my Mom do the filling in………….the sentences seem to be more “human-friendly” than kitty friendly so TAKE IT AWAY MOM (her fill ins are in BLUE!).
4. Before this year is over, I really need to clean out my closet – yet again – that’s usually EASIEST to do after Christmas when Santa has brought me lots of new things!.
OK MOM! Well done………………………..maybe next week I’ll take a whack at filling in.
Now I think I’ll let you in on some little not so secret secrets as a result of my vet visit last week. You see, Mom and Dad are going away for a few days next month and I’ll be staying in the kennel where Angel Sammy used to stay when Mom and Dad went somewhere………He loved the place – and they adored him too. I hope they adore me! Anyway, I had to have a shot that they require so Mom packed me off to the vet. While I was there the tech weighed me, took my temperature, checked my teefs and ears and found everything to be in order except deep in my ears she saw GUNK. So she got out the dreaded LONG q-tip and got out a lot of stuff which Mom was astounded to see. I was very good – I did squeak a couple of times though. Then my doc came in and the tech told him about my ears – he put some instrument in there and said that there was still more and that they should take me to the other room (eeeeek) and work on my ears. I suppose the other room meant I might scream and they didn’t want Mom to worry???? He also told my Mom that – well – er – um – ……….. that I MIGHT be getting a teensy bit too BIG. I weigh 16.8 lbs. already and I’m not going to be 2 until March. Uhoh. Well they carted me off to that “OTHER ROOM” and finally when I got back, the doc said I had a yeast infection in my ears and gave Mom some drops for them. I HATE THE DROPS IN MY EARS! Anyway, I have to go back in 4 weeks for ear re-check and they will also do my blood work again to check my lymphocytes AGAIN. My first two checks I was in “HIGH NORMAL” range and my doc would like me to be in “NORMAL NORMAL” range. Maybe my ear infection had something to do with that?????
So, of course now my Dad is calling me CHUBBY, BUTTER BEAN, and I even heard him call me FATSO once but Mom smacked his arm when he said that so I hope he won’t call me THAT again. Mom says I’m big-boned. I kind of like that one. YAY MOM! I can only have one cup of dry food a day. Mom used to leave a bowl for me to graze in but no more. ONE CUP A DAY PERIOD. I’m ok with that actually. She’s also increased my “heavy exercise” time with lots of laser chase which really makes me run like the wind all over the house – up and down stairs and definitely gets me moving.
I bet before long Dad will be calling me SLIM or instead of BUTTER BEAN maybe STRING BEAN?????!!!!!
