The first thing that makes today BIG and IMPORTANT is that Adan gave me the 'So Special' Award. I am honored to receive this award! See how pretty the flowers are...
I want to share it with Daisy Mae Maus, Muffin (and mommy Tracy), and Faz.
The second thing that makes today BIG and IMPORTANT is that Lucy is getting her ladygardenectomy today.
I can tell she's a little nervous--not for the surgery because that will be easy--but because she's hungry, and Mom won't give her anything to eat.
Lucy's been asking me 'Does Mama still love me?' I tell her that of course mom loves her. I also hear Mom telling her 'Lucy, it's because I love you so much that I want you to have your ladygardenectomy. You'll be healthier and happier and live a longer life.' It doesn't stop Lucy from searching the kitchen for snacks and water!
Mom here: Lucy's appointment is at 9:00 am. I'll take her in on my way to work, and then pick her up later today. You can be sure that she'll get the best of care and be in the pink again in no time!
She woke me at 3:30 am to tell me that she was hungry. I explained why she couldn't eat, and we both went back to sleep. At 6:00 am, she was still hungry, and started nibbling on me. Since then, she's spent time snuggled in my arms, and racing around the house scratching on her scratch posts, and trying to find something yummy.
I'll post again tonight when she's home.
Update from Lucy's Mom: lucy's spending the night at the v-e-t. I'll pick her up tomorrow and she will spend part of the day with me at work. Ben is wondering where she is...and sticking to me like velcro!
(a special thanks to dmm's mom!)
