Today at 9:11 PM, Scrapper, our little black cat died.  Friday, a neighbor about 5 houses down gunned the gas, crossed over into the left lane, and ran her over.  This resulted in her back legs being horribly dislocated and other internal injuries.  We were not sure of the extent.  So today, she got the surgery to try and fix the dislocations.

While we waited for the vet to come in on Monday, she never hissed or swiped at us.  She only wanted head scritchies which we all were happy to give.  When Monday came, she was carefully placed in a carrier and taken to the vet.  Tuesday morning, they performed the surgery but it looked pretty bad. 

I guess God needed her to come back to Him.  Her unconditional lovings were given to anyone that stopped and talked to her.  She will be buried with the others that came into our lives, shared their love with us, and moved on to their next plane.  When my time comes, I can only play that I will see them all and that they will greet me with their tails in the air and happy purrs and mews.

For right now, I am heart broken and grieving.

UPDATE:

Last night, my mother had what was thought to be two seizures at 10 PM.

The neurologist now believes she had a second stroke and a seizure.  This time on her left brain and taking out the right side.  She's going for an MRI now and that will take a little time to do and get reviewed by the appropriate physicians.

No word on the EEG as yet.

I'm sitting in a state of hot stand-by.  For those of you that know what that means, I am on station and cycling up and down.  Not a pleasant state of being.

Now comes the waiting game.

I've not cancelled my show in Eastman.  It is still happening for us, even through this rough time.  I don't dare say what is starting to run through my head on this matter.

I don't want to give the Devil ammunition.

Those of you inclined, a prayer chain is welcomed.

Today I was informed that Terry McInnes passed away on the 19th of November.  He was a writer, a gamer, all around great person.  I would have to call him one of the Golden Era Traveller writers.

He wrote the World Tamer's Handbook, COACC, co-wrote Fire, Fusion, and Steel, and Hard Times just to name a few.

Though his articles were written for MegaTraveller and Traveller, The New Era, he was one of us old timers that cut our teeth on Classic Traveller.

He shall be missed.

Ad Astra, Terry. Fair winds to you in that ocean of stars.
