Everything Southern & So Cotton Pickin Cute

Wednesday, December 1, 2010


The life care center called just now and is sending my MIL back to the hospital now.  Her potassium levels are too high.  Please prayer for the family.

Also my cat just died about an hour and a half ago and we've been crying about that all evening.  I just can't believe he died.  I had held him all day.  I'm a wreck and so is Neil.  We certainly didn't expect to get a call from Life Care telling us this.  I don't know what else to say .


  1. Oh Tracy...what a day you have had. I am so sorry honey!! I will be praying for you MIL and for the loss of your beloved cat.

    Hugs and squeezes..Cindy from Rick-Rack and Gingham

  5. Dear Tracey: Sending south Florida hugs to you as you mourn the loss of your dear pet. I know, all too well, how much it hurts when a companion passes. Also saying a prayer for your mother-in-law. Gosh! When it rains, it pours. Sorry, dear friend.

  27. Hi Tracy,
    I came over to answer a question of yours, but was so sorry to read about your MIL. Of course I will pray for her and your family (and for peace and comfort concerning the loss of your sweet kitty).
    If you go to Sugardoodle.net, then scroll down to 'Activity Day Program' you will find "Baby Jesus Craft". That's where you'll find detailed instructions on how to make them. I'm planning on making them for my Etsy next year, but please feel free to make as many as you would like as gifts. : )
    Take good care, Tracy.
