I am sorry taxlady. Heartfelt thoughts & prayers to you & sterling.

Thank you. It just takes a few kind words to make someone feel better.

Hanging out by myself again. I was not able to bring my Ogre home and he is very upset. While his wound is getting better and looks fantastic, he still needs the proper care for it, which is quite expensive and we could not afford it if he came home and I did it. Medicare and cutbacks!!!! They'd rather spend over $300 a day in a facility than pay the rent on the machine of $75 a day plus supplies and let me do his care. Idiots!

Heck! I wouldn't even charge them for the nursing care...

I'll give him your hug tomorrow. They are all calling us the Lovebirds.
