Hey everyone Gissi here I need help Mum is doing as I tell her Auntie Darkwing had to go home, I was sad when she left but she said she will come and see me again so I am happy with that I did miss her last Night though Anyway this means I am in charge do you agree? Well Mum doesn't Ok so far today I told Mum at 6am it is time to get up, Mum said be quiet Gissi with that racket, Mum gets up at 7am, not happy that was an hour after I told her to get up Ok next one, Mum switch Computer on so me can get on there, Mum did you hear me? Nope she walks into the Kitchen, takes her time, then switches the Computer on AND GOES ON HERSELF Hmmm excuse Mum that is not what I said, Mum I want to go on here now, nope she just ignores me jumping up at the Chair, well she did not ignore me she patted my Head and said good Boy, grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Mum goes back to bed at 8.15am, well hang on what about my Gissi time, I need to go out and wake everyone, I know Mum does not normally take me out till 11am, but thought she might, I start to make a racket and again I get, Gissi shush, no I do not want to shush, I am in charge and so far you are not listening to me Mum gets up at 10am she goes in a Shower, so must be nearly Gissi time, nope she has I have to wait for Auntie Joe as she is taking me, oh great and when is Auntie Joe coming. Well I am not having this, either Mum does as she is told, or I will have to mess her bed up severly just not on at all Auntie Darkwing said Mum had to do as she is told by me and she is not Now Mum has decided it is back to bed for her, well she does look tired and yuk a bit I guess I will try again later she might come round to my way of thinking yet See you all later

Oh dear gissi, sounds like you are not having much luck. You will have to put your paws down with a firm hand and make yourself more assertive. It does sound as if Mum is tired though so make sure that you show her whose boss and make sure that she looks after herself. xx

Hello Gissi this is Sammy here. I am so sorry that your mum will not listen to you. I know what it is to be the boss and not one listens to you. I am the boss of this house hold and no one listens to me. I will tell you thou you have to give your mum some slack because I know when my mum has had to go the hospital she has come home sick and needing to stay in bed a lot. What I do is sleep at the head of the bed, where all good bosses sleep. I sleep beside mom in case she needs something so I can tell someone to get it for her. I also can keep Abagail and Petie in line so they do not hurt my mom. She is my mom first. I have been in this family 11 human years. Gissi please be patient with your mum she will get better and her hearing will get better. I know when my mom is feeling well she can hear me better. Have patiences young man. Love Sammy

I will have patients with her, Mum is getting annoyed though because she is fed up with sleeping, not being able to do things as she wants to and I do feel sorry for her, her breathing is the worse of it all , but her Tummy still hurts to and she is restless at night because she sleeps on her Side and of course that sometimes hurt her Tummy when she moves the wrong way , the Nurse is coming back to see Mum today for her Lungs and we hope the Oxygen has gone up but the Way Mum breathes I don't think so But I will carry on looking after her I lie next to Mum's bed as she is to restless for me at the moment and she might squish me by accident, then I would be a flat Gissi hehehe Hugs Sammy, ....Gissi

When mom is that restless I sleep closer to dad. heehee. He hardly moves. We have this gigantic bed. Mom calls it a king. I know we have lots of room I am sorry mum is not doing well with her lungs if she does not breath well soon I fear she will go to hospital gain. yuck. Gissi this is what you do, do you know CPR? Mom just had a class and he has the book opened right her. When mum is not breathing good you take a deep breath in and open your mouth real wide so to cover her nose and mouth and breath down her lungs. That will help get oxygen into her lungs. Heehee. I try to do it to mom when she is sleeping just to practice but she wakes up when my wiskers tickle her nose. heehee

Hey Gissi! Am I reading this right... your Mum is not doing as you tell her, when I know she heard me tell you to look after her? Well, I'm going to have a few choice words to say to her, next time she's on Yahoo! I somehow knew she would get sneaky and tire herself out... I did notice how long she was on the computer this afternoon, after she got up again, and I'm taking note... you might tell her that for me, little man. I know it's a long wait for Auntie Jo to find time to come round... well, it was Sunday, and human beans sleep in late on Sundays. Besides, I hear tell that Auntie Jo took you for a forty minute walk last night, so you should have been ok to wait this morning. You just have to be patient, sweetie. I know that she's not going to be around tomorrow, so Mum will be taking you onto the bit of green behind Auntie Jo's garden, so be a good boy whilst you're there, huh, and don't upset Daisy! Tell Mum, from me, that she has to listen to you, because she forgets how much she's doing sometimes, and we're working together to try and get her better quickly. Her wounds may have healed on the outside, but she has to heal inside, since the human vet operated on her. To do that, she must rest and take things very easy. I know she hates sitting still, but take her a book and try to get her to relax and read. Mum's special man will be around soon, so tell him if she misbehaves, ok? Love you Gissi... and, as promised I will find you something to send in a special parcel in the post, as you didn't get your own on either yours or Mum's special day. Give me a couple of days and I'll get something sorted out for you... thank you for being such a good boy for your Auntie Darkwing. Hugs and kisses. xxx

Hey Auntie Darkwing, thank you for looking after me I missed you when you had gone and I was a bit confused yesterday to when I realised you where not coming back but I am ok now I didn't think Mum was on to long , she was asleep all afternoon, then she came on for a bit, she then stood talking to Auntie Joe, went and sat on the Settee and watched a Film I do hope that her Messenger shows her Idle when she is not on as I do not want Mum getting into trouble if she is not doing wrong Love you Auntie Darkwing and thank you so much for everything including looking after Mum xxxxxxx

Yes, she showed idle whilst she was in bed, Gissi, but she was on a good 2-3 hours in the evening... her Yahoo messenger told me so. Never mind... if that's ok with her, and doesn't put too much pressure on her tummy by sitting in the same position and leaning forward, then no reason to worry. But, if it makes her tired and sore, then she has to cut back again. I'm sure you'll know when she's doing too much. When it comes down to it, sweetie, she will either choose to heal quickly or for it to take longer, so that she can do the things she feels she wants to do. We can't force her, but just advise her. I'm sure all will be well in the end. xxx

Gissi, Gissi, Gissi, You need to have patience with Mum. She has been through a lot and is very tired. Let her rest and she well tell you when it is alright for you to have your turn. She loves you so much but she needs her rest. Remember, that even though you are the boss now, Mum needs to have the final word. Now don't argue with that. She does! Just love her and let her hold you. Forgive her. And give her lots of kisses.

How dare she talk to you like that??? However since it is obvious that you love her so very much, perhaps just this once, you can overlook her attitude...she did just come home from the hospital after all.

From what I gather, your mom didn't take you out to go potty when she first woke up? If so, she needs to take you out so you don't go in the house. Domingo goes out soon as I wake up. If he doesn't go out, he will go here in Tigger's room which I hate because he is ruining the carpet in here. Mom needs to listen to you, Gissi. After all, YOU are in charge till mom gets better. But, she does need her sleep as well. Just be patient with her, Gissi. When she is better, things will be back to normal. Hugs

Hey Mum's Twin Hmmmm what does dictatorial mean I would ask Mum but then she would want to know where I heard it, then she would find out I have been on her Lap top and that would not be good I thought being in charge means what I say goes but Mum was not I am giving Mum lots of love and Kisses but I still have to be careful with her Tummy as that is still very sore Big Hugs to you

Hi Gissi dear, You know, don’t you, that Mom just needs as much rest as she can get so why don’t you help her by actually being hush for some days now? I am sure she cant take the noise right now…and by being in charge means not your own time dear, but taking care of mom, keeping the house peaceful so that she doesn’t have to arrange her bed time and again and generally helping her how you can. I’m sure you will be up to it…you can always have your fun times back once mum is strong enough.

Yes, Gissi, you are in charge. You need to be patient with Gabs. She is your responsibility. It is your job to make sure she gets plenty of rest, sleep and food. Please remember it is not all about you. Your mum needs kisses and hugs and lots of love. Wake her up gently. Make her smile. Have lots of patience.
