You are very welcome. Just remember, you may feel alone, but we are always right here or someone is. Now get some sleep, no fretting into the night. Hugs!

Thanks again for making me feel better. I'm glad you are all here, and my cat is keeping me company too. He is such a good boy. He knows when he's needed.

I'm sending healing vibes in your granny's direction.

Our pets just seem to know. They don't have to say a word.

There are days when I don't feel good, and when Teddy Bear comes, instead on jumping up on my bed for his back scratch, he lays down on the floor next to me. Just like your cat, he knows. Pets bring us a lot of comfort.

They can definitely sense your mood. I've had Golly since the day he was born 9 years ago. His mom was a stray I rescued. She had that "You are the most amazing person in the world" attitude that a lot of rescues have, which rubbed off on Golly. He follows me around the house like a puppy. Unfortunately his mom's kidneys failed a couple years ago so I don't have her anymore.

I talked to my grandma this morning- she says it's hell getting old, and she wishes she could have some coffee, but she's pretty optimistic. That's my grandma :) she laid in the driveway for 40 minutes before she could get her phone out of her pocket. Of course she had to be laying on top of the damn thing. I'm surprised none of the cars driving by noticed a little old lady laying there. Cars drive by on her road every 5 minutes or so- probably more often at that time of day. Hm.

I'm sure she is trying to ease your mind. That's what Ma's do I'll be thinking of her and have her in my thoughts and prayers.If at all possible call for a few minutes each day that you can. I know she loves you dearly and will be thrilled to hear your voice.

Any sign of those kitties yet? I'm still sending "go home" vibes.

Thanks everyone. She had her surgery and is awake and doing ok. I talked to her for about ten minutes this morning, but I can't go visit because of course now I am coming down with the flu. I'm glad I started having flu symptoms before going to see her though. That's the last thing she needs.

I really appreciate all your thoughts, prayers, and support. My grandma means so much to me and it's so hard when things like this happen because I know it means we are just that much closer to losing her. I will be devastated when that happens.
