Frankie is doing well, had another operation since you've been gone. It was a big one, and he took a long time to recover afterward, but he is on his road to recovery. I just worry about him so, picking his skin to oblivion. It's a nervous tick we are trying to get to the bottom of, so if anyone knows how to stop it, please contact me ASAP!!
Mom, I've had a hard time since you've been gone. For a long time, I was mad at God for not helping you. It's taken me months to figure out that He HAS helped you - by taking you out of your misery. That still doesn't stop my heart from going over the last week of your life. I will never get over thinking I missed something I shouldn't have. Or did I work you too hard with the travel nursing? It was hard work packing and unpacking for three months at a time and then moving on. Maybe I wore you out. I hope not. I no longer am mad at God or think I made your death happen....but I still carry around hurt and missing you in my heart. I think I always will.
I am in the process of hunting for work soon, Mom. I think I'm ready to go back to nursing, which is what you always wanted me to do. You never let me give up in myself, even after I long gave up myself. You were an amazing mom, one that will be in my heart forever.
Jack is doing well, too. He misses you, though, I can just tell. I'm now his "surrogate" mommy. I feed him, give him water and play with him. I remember you trying to teach him "no biting" when was a year old. And you would sing to him the "Daisy Song" that he just loves. He perches his ears when I sing and NOT in a good way. How rude!! Silly kitty!!! But he gets in lots of purr time. :0)
Your one and only daughter,
