Once again

Yes, once again we have managed to miss the bullet.  I really was making plans to euthanize Simone.  Apparently, it was just another "spell," but I really think these will come more often and be much worse as we go.

She is spry, or at least as spry as an eight plus year old Boxer can be.  She is eating - well.  She is thinking I won't feed her again like I did when she was so sick.  She has a cough that is probably due to her acid reflux.

I don't know.  I do know that as much as I am so delighted she is better, I know it is just a reprieve.  The end is coming.  I will not be prepared even though I know what is looming.

I want to thank you all for your wonderful comments.  I am beginning to feel like the little boy who cried wolf, but she gets so sick.  So I put one and one together, and think this is it - she has reached the end.  Your comments were so warm however, and I am so appreciative.

Shadow still hasn't made his presence known.  I had my son go by again.  I asked him to (gross and probably TMI here) check the litter to see if it had been used.  The bad news is it doesn't look like it.  But I just don't see how he could have gotten out of the house at all.  We had Son open our closet door.  It was the only place he could have gotten locked into.

But the time is growing closer to us going back home.  I pray we get one home alive and find Mr Smarty Pants Cat is OK.  He surely showed us!!!

So glad and relieved about Simone and worried about Shadow. I just don't know what I would do now without my two cats--they help me so against the loneliness.
