Yikes!!! We just had a 5.6 earthquake in San Jose. I and my brother and sister went crazily running around the house during the shaking. Mom just kept on telling us it would be okay. She didn't even get up out of her chair or stop watching the tv! We're all in hiding now.

Mom here, that was a strong one. I haven't felt anything that strong since Loma Prieta in 1989. I felt helpless to calm the cats as they ran around in fear. I have no idea where any of the poodins are except for Kali, my 18 year old who's asleep on her mat in front of the tv. I hope the aftershocks don't bother us much.

Poor Sophie must really must be dizzy from taking her pain meds and now this shake-up. Speaking of the angel, she's doing well. She won't keep her e-collar on. I don't know exactly where she is, but I think she's under my bed. After I gave her pain meds at 6 pm, she disappeared. It'll be good once she's healed and I won't have to worry so much about her.

Sophie Is Doing Quite Well!

Your prayers worked. I should have had more faith that they would. The doctor commented that she's never had a more stable a patient. Thank you everyone who said a prayer or sent a warm thought. I honestly felt calm this morning, and usually I'm quite a mess.

Everything went well. She's awake and feeling no pain right now. I'm able to get her as soon as 4 pm. They're going to give her a soft e-collar. The V-E-T wants me to keep her away from the other cats for 5 days. Gosh, that would be hard. I would have to keep her with me, for both her and my frame of mind. The other cats won't get as much attention from me with that set up. I'll play it by ear. If she's needing a lot of pain meds and she's groggy, then I'll definately keep them away. Or if they want to hassle her at all, they'll be removed from my bedroom.

Last night, I made them all start fasting at 9 pm. At 2 am I had Jake on top of my bed screamming at me for food. I swear he has a hidden meezer inside him. He can make very annoying demanding meezes. Of course, I'm the sucker mom who obeys nearly his every wish. He keeps to a regular schedule, so I understand why he felt it necessary to tell me that I was neglecting my duties in the middle of the night.

Thanks again for your thoughts and prayers. I'm very very greatful. You all deserve hugs. I'm sure Sophie has some sweet purrs for you all also.
Love Lynn (Tyler, Sophie, Jake, Cookie and Kali's mom)
