My beloved cat, Cha Cha, passed away suddenly from an undiagnosed case of diabetes, the day after we lost Aunt Billie. She was 12 years old and one of my dearest companions. I was with her at the end, petting her and telling her everything would be okay, when she fell asleep.
I will be writing more about Cha Cha (called Chachie) and Aunt Billie over coming days and weeks, but at the moment, it’s about all I can do to tell you about these losses.
On a more positive note, our little guy, Gibson Grady Drew, is definitely holding his own. He weighed in at 3.7 pounds and as of today, he’s off the CPAP breathing machine. My sister Sally, his maternal grandmother, is thinking of making him his very own Superman get-up. He’s big-eyed and alert, and we’re all madly in love with him.
Last week’s winners, belatedly announced, are Laurie Sullivan and Pamela R.J. Congratulations to both of you. A new round begins today, so get those comments in.
Thanks to Jenni, I now know how to add pictures to my blog posts–FINALLY–so you’ll be innundated with pictures of the dog, the cat, and the horses, not to mention the occasional artist trading cards and other projects.
I hope to be back on track with the book AND the blog from now on, and I’m truly thankful for your kind words of encouragement, your prayers, and your loving thoughts. You’re all wonderful!
