I can't tell you how nice it was to read words of support for my 13 year old baby. From the heart, thank you so much.
She has recovered mostly from the horrible trauma of being there away from home so long a time for the first time in her life. She was so exhausted, truly, when she came home she slept like she was unconscious for 15 hours. Today, she came with me quite frankly into the bathroom when I got up. That's when I just got on the bathroom floor with her and she got the first petting and kissy love she'd had in several days. She was purring so loud she sound like a boom box blasting. However, she's still barely eating and as I may have said, she lost an entire pound in 36 hours. Maybe things will normalize.
I hope to come see you too. The boys are still here and I am still waiting on the little tyrant here.
