UPDATE (2:15 P.M. EST)
I just talked to Charley and they are getting along okay. The biggest obstacle is not having any electricity. I do have a friend who will take them a battery operated fan tomorrow, if their electricity is not restored by then. Right now, the weather is cooperating, so they aren’t desperate. But, the temperatures are expected to climb by tomorrow. I have reported their problem to anyone I can get to listen. I’ve been told that they are on a priority list, but who knows how long that list is!
I have far too much news to report:"
- Mommy talked to ML last night. ML and Charley were able to get out and get fresh supplies of food and water. This is very good news. However, it still does not help that they are still without electricity. The cats are all doing fine. Thankfully, the temperatures have been cooler than normal, although are expected to begin to rise by tomorrow. Let's pray that they get their power restored ASAP!
- Mommy is doing a little better. She had a reaction to the steroid used in the her injections (of course) and has managed to "blow up like a Macy's Day Balloon". Since last Thursday, she put on TWENTY POUNDS of water retention. Her doctor started her on a diuretic last night and she has already lost EIGHT POUNDS. Needless to say, Mommy hasn't been very happy about this development and neither has her heart, lungs, and other parts of her body that she deems necessary for life.
I will be back with any late breaking news developments.
Until then, this is Sasquatch Belle Taylor ....signing off!
