Then I had to admire our kitties who were waiting for a third breakfast. The white calico, Bella, just had a tumor removed from her gumline and 8 teeth removed last month so she is wet food only-she is pretty happy about that. The vet thinks the tumor will return as they could not get all of it and it is cancerous. $ 5,000.00 would pay for the radiation that "may" eradicate it. We love our kitties, but, Bella has had 8 years of bliss out of her 9 yrs of life, as we rescued her and Bertha, who is 8, when Bertha was 8 weeks old. We are praying it doesn't come back, but if it does we will make her comfortable and keep on spoiling her until the end.
We lost a friend this week to lung cancer. He was in our heart transplant support group and his new heart gave him 5 extra years of life. He was pretty amazing-encouraging, loving, giving. he did a lot with his five years. Unfortunately, cancer is a side effect of organ transplant. The drugs they have to take for life lowers the immune system and that is an environment that cancer thrives on. We will miss Bob very much as he added so much to the group.
So, today I really am going to finish the middle. I never get done what I think I am going to. I did finish row 3 and 4 yesterday and it is all attached so, I think it would be reasonable to assume I can get row 5 done today and possibly cut out the borders. If I don't get borders done today-there is tomorrow-either way I am seeing a light at the end of the tunnel!
Better get in there and sew before it is time for my nap:)
