She didn't wake up but she was breathing and I could feel her pulse and then her Mamma started to cry when they left and I just found out Cat hasn't slept at at all since her Mamma got sick. She's been staying up watching her Mamma and reading on her Nook and none of us knew it. Carl called and said she woke up in the ambulance and was awake when they brought her in and that's all we know. OMG we're so scared!! Her Mamma said she told her she felt dizzy this morning but it was probably from the cold and don't worry about it. I'm sorry I'm bringing bad news but you should know and I just put Cat's name on the board and I cleaned up the blood and we're waiting to hear from Carl. I'll let you know as soon as I hear from him. So sorry to ruin everyone's New Year day.

Lakisha
Now ~Cat's name is on my list. Take care of Mamma and let us know.

Love and prayers going your way. I'll check before I leave in the morning.

There must be something to this smart oven technology. This is the first TO I've used that hasn't overcooked the tops of foods. Breville has my recommendation.

Is Unicorn Meat anything like SPAM? LOL

I'm loving it for sure. I just hope it lasts a long time.

That's been a real problem with ours. Good information.

Lakisha, it's good to hear that they got Cat on the road to recovery. You give that girl a good talking to! Cat and her entire family are so blessed to have such caring friends like your, Carl and Gwen. I'm sure you'll all make sure she behaves herself. ;-)

Cat's home. We put her to bed immediately because she could barely walk in Carls bed and she didn't argue, for once. Her Papa said he didn't give a d*** about everyone being sick and he's sharing the sofabed with Carl and Aunt Stela insisted on coming down here and she wasn't leaving until she sat by Cat's bed for a little while. Cat's out COLD! OMG she scared us all to death! She can't be doing this ever ever ever again. We're going to have a good talk with her when she wakes up. She had two of us here!! We could've taken turns watching her Mamma if that's what she wanted! She had help and didn't ask us! Oh I'm so relieved but mad at the same time. Anyway, she's got bronchitis and Carl's going out to fill her meds tomorrow and now Papa and Aunt Stela are exposed so I don't know what'll happen. I called Mama and she said to stay here as long as I need and I'll do it.

Thanks for the thoughts and support for Cat. She needs a LOT of rest and she's gonna get it whether she likes it or not. I hid her Nook in case she gets any ideas!

I think she'll be ok. If there's any changes, I'll let you know. Ogress, don't you worry about Cat. You've got surgery tomorrow and you need to be all ready for it.

We're all going to bed now. Thanks again, and good night!

Lakisha

Oh she'll get a talking to! Thanks, CG. We're blessed to have her and her family too. I'll sit on her if I have to!

Lakisha, if Cat wants to get up, let her have her Nook, on condition that she stays in bed.

Whew. Well that was fun.
My tootsies are still cold. I knew to break out the plastic visor I wear when it's super cold, the kind a grinder would wear to protect his face from sparks, but I guess I should have put on two pair of socks.

Strange, but I saw this morning everyone talking about the storm heading to New England and NYC and low and behold, it had a name, Hercules.
I don't recall it having a name when it dumped snow snow across my state... oh yeah, we called it a "snow storm".
