My Guardian Angel sent a distraction today

Went to the vet with my cat. Really thought we had this under control but she has a lump in her intestine. She got an antibiotic shot and one of her other shots (I can't even remember which one anymore). Vet said she needs an ultrasound to determine what's going on. I have to figure all of that out, financially and otherwise. Meanwhile, just before I left the vet's office, a very dear friend that I haven't seen since my husband's funeral happened to walk in! Her daughter recently had a baby, so we were hugging and talking about happier things. We're hoping to get together soon. She runs the photo lab at a local CVS and only gets one day off during the week, so we're going to try to do lunch. When I worked at the church all those years ago, she was one of the volunteers who came in to teach the kids. I really miss those days. So many great people and we'd all been so close. So, on a rough day, it was so nice to have her face suddenly before me! My Guardian Angel seems to be working overtime lately. Claudia

It really was wonderful finding my good friend again! I've spoken with her daughter on FB and we're planning a lunch so I can catch up with them and meet the new member of their family! It's time for happier news!

How nice to run into an old friend - and even nicer to be making plans to catch up again.

Yes it is, and I've learned from past experience that I should be the one to try and make the definite plans. Otherwise it will be more years without contact, and I really don't want that.

@CRK109 Some people aren't very good at following up with definite plans. It would be good if you were able to take on that role.

That's wonderful! I will be praying for your fur baby. I know it's scary, and so hard when money is tight. You'd rather sacrifice for them than do anything for yourself.

That's exactly how I've been feeling. But the medication doesn't seem to be working and now I'm getting really scared that I'm going to lose her.

@CRK109 Oh, no. I wish we somehow could help you get the money. How much will the test cost?

I hope that lump isn't anything too serious. It was nice that a friend showed up to lighten your day.

I'm glad you had something to still smile about on such a rough day. I'm praying for a miracle for your cat too.

Thanks so much! A miracle would be so appreciated! Of course, with all the little ones showing up, I don't know if I've been given too much already.

I'm so worried about her. I don't know what's the right thing to do. Some days I just wish life was easy.
