Hi Katie

Just caught this. I am thinking & praying for you. You are not doing this alone, we are here in strength to support you. We can't be there physically but we are mentally and sending you strength in prayers.

Oh Katie, my heart is breaking for you. Everyone who knows you knows Buck is your other half - almost literally. It must be torture being separated from him when he is sick and to have no one else to take over the daily life responsibilities. You are the person everyone leans on and looks to for help and support. Nows the time to open up and ask for help - even if it's someone you don't know very well.

Find a neighbor or business associate or a client of Buck's or even a police officer and ask if you give them a big bag of cat food, will they feed your kitties daily. All they can do is say no but I'm sure someone will be glad to do something to help. Sometimes others need a chance to do the giving and you have to receive. Otherwise I'm afraid you won't be able to hold up physically, sweetie.

As far as the hospital, you can probably work your way into being able to stay with him most of the time. Almost all of the larger hospitals allow this now and maybe you can help this one catch up. Ask and ask. As long as you are polite and respectful (which you always are) they will probably bend the rules for you a little.

I'm praying so hard for your Buck and you, too. Please tell him when you see him that we're all worried and to work hard to get well and come back to you and all of us.

Thanks everyone. Your comments, thoughts and prayers mean a lot.

I'm off to the hospital. I'll let you know later what's happening.

Love you all!!

Oh Katie, Katie - I hope you know how much the people on this board love you and Buck and pray for his quick recovery. I only wish we could be there with you to hug you and provide more comfort. If we could transport ourselves, you know we would be there, feeding your kittens, putting your groceries away, driving you to the hospital. I know you have a million things on your mind, but hope you can get back to us ASAP and let us know what's going on and how you are both doing. Love, Karen

I'm sending prayers and positive energy to You and Buck. Wish I could be there as well to do your chores. There must be somone who can jump in and help you out. Perhaps the church can help you.
