Last Post For A While

Hi everyone.......

Well, tomorrow is the big day. Today I have a lot to do to get ready, washing clothes, cleaning, grocery shopping, litter boxes washed out, bedding changed, etc..

We decided to take our camper to Spokane and stay in it, in the parking lot, overnight. (Tuesday night) That way, after the surgery, we can just get in the camper and stay, rather than finding a motel room, as I have a follow-up appointment at 7:30 AM. Then, we will drive home Wed. morning. I imagine another appointment will be scheduled in 9 days.

My daughter-in-law is going to post updates for me.

Thanks to all of you for your well wishes and good thoughts. Special thanks to EdselsMom, who sent me the cutest calico stuffed kitty to cuddle, a book, a handpainted tiny card with a tuxedo and calico cat on it, some kitty grass for the girls, and a cat puzzle (1,000 pcs) for my husband, so he has something to do, besides listen to me whine. Also, Sue, in Loughton, England, who has been such a good friend, for many years. Thanks to Derby'sMom for the nice post and asking for purrayers. Thanks to the MeezerMom for the delightful card. Thanks to anyone I have missed....sorry, things are a bit hectic. You all have been unbelievable.

Talk to you all as soon as I can.

Anycat can come over anytime and visit. The girls look forward to the company, and so do I.

CalicoMom Toni
