The vet called to tell me that Cadi stabilized early this morning and she now believes that Cadi is going to be okay -- what an incredible relief. And how grateful I am to everyone who offered support, prayers, and good thoughts because they certainly helped me not to feel so alone up here in the midst of crisis.
It is hard to move and have to develop all those new relationships that we just take for granted -- friends, professionals, grocery clerks, dry cleaners, and so on. Those relationships buffer us when life throws a crazy curve ball, and allow stability in the face of chaos. I do not really have all that in Montana (yet) but I have such great friends all over the country who sent their encouragement and support, and that truly helped. So thank you -- for thinking of us, for sending your thoughts, and for being supportive. I hope you feel the special joy that comes from knowing that you did make a difference.
