Barb's knees #5

There was a minor turn today. The Little Hairless Monkey had low haemoglobin and so had to get some blood. While this was certainly not wanted, it is apparently a common post-surgery occurrence. She is still going great on the CPM machine and has had many steps to and from her litter box but is understandably tired.

Big HM talked to her just moments ago and she’s fine again but has postponed the trip to St. Joe’s until tomorrow. Tomorrow is a new holiday here and so things will be quieter anyway. It’s about time we had a holiday mid-winter as we ‘northerners’ suffer through short cold days from New Year’s to Easter without a break. Not that it affects me too much of course, but having unhappy attendants during the winter months has always been a problem for us cats. Perhaps even the dogs feel this it but since they have ‘masters’ and we have ‘attendants’ I think they might not be bothered as much.

I did another card for her today. She sometimes makes two or three in a day and I don’t know how she does it. This one is all done on the computer and is nice and simple. I like simple for two reasons: it gets right to the sentiment without distractions and also because I don’t want Little HM to feel inferior. You do believe me, don’t you?

All you stampers should pass this along to your Dough-Heads: Big HM said he’ll never complain about the money Little HM spends anymore as you all have added something which money can’t buy. A chin-rub to you all.

Ah-h-h! Love your card, never mind all the embellishments, it's
the sentiment that counts. Purrfect!
Keep your chin up Barb, the graph
chart will have some little curves in it, but it will keep climbing for you. Hugs, Norma

Thanks for the update. Do let Barb know that we continue to keep her in our thoughts. I'm sorry for the minor setback but I'm sure she'll be back on track tomorrow. Great card!

Oh Hank. Jennifer is really sorry to hear about the setback today. But in little HM's determined way, she sounds like she's not going to let it get her down. Jen is glad she's staying in her current location a bit longer.

We think you need to really be affectionate to big HM tonight. Those 2 legged creatures can really use our furry/purry support sometimes.

Jennifer sends hugs to little HM and lots of prayers for healing and strength for her.

Tango, Merlin and Renoir.

Such an adorable card, and it does get right to the point which is the most important part. Tell the little HM that we miss her and send lots of wishes for good red blood cells to give her strength.
