Good News

My Mom is doing much better today. It turned out that a lot of things added up to make her so sick. Mostly she was really dehydrated. The doctor thinks that a few days in the hospital getting rehydrated will fix her right up. I will get around to thanking all of you personally, but I want to give out a general thank you so much for your purrs, woofs and prayers. Right now I am totally physically and emotionally exhausted, so I'll just leave it at that. I will get back to you soon, probably tomorrow, at least visiting.

Ooh, we meant ta add a limerick fer the Limerick Lady:

There was a Mom who didnt drink.
It dried up her insides we think.
It made her sick,
It made her thick,
So give her lotsa water quick!

I'm so glad to hear that your mom is going to be okay. Tracy says that it is common for "acute kidney failure" to happen in humans when they are dehydrated and it just fixes itself when they get enough fluids back in. I hope she feels better sooner than every one thinks. We send her our purrs from the Pablo Fan Club.

Phoebe for Monica and Joey too.
