Still having a rough time

Yes Snoop is not having an easy time of it. cat 54 First it was thought the lump over his eye was a severe sinus infection, but it keeps getting bigger, so the thinking on that matter has changed. CatSmiley11 Don’t know what to believe now, but it isn’t good. cat 44 Then he decided he wasn’t going to eat… or drink… not good either. cat 14 Blood tests taken… and shipped off… results came in… he has pancreatitis… not good, but after a week of force feeding and fluid injections his weight is back up and he is eating on his own again. cat 22 Yes, I nag at him. cat 3 I told him he is going to get better, yes, I may be in dept for the next year. AddEmoticons00937 Sigh.

On a more positive note… there is the story of UPS AddEmoticons04212 20-55-04(Yes, THAT again) and the shipment of collector cards. AddEmoticons04247 They were to be delivered on Thursday, and there were 5 packages (tiny ones) … Three showed up yesterday. AddEmoticons04240 21-08-43 After them telling me they were in Missouri (don’t ask). AddEmoticons04282 21-08-40 The other two are still coming, last seen broken up into 2 shipments… one headed to me from Windsor, the other from Concord..AddEmoticons04236 10-17-45. I still can’t figure why they sent them on a tour of the USA. AddEmoticons04280 21-51-21 It would have been sooo much easier if they would have been shipped together, not to mention that I would be sending off about 8 parcels in the mail. AddEmoticons04274 22-59-06 They are saying Wednesday deliver, maybe. AddEmoticons04261

Sarah got ill,AddEmoticons04210 which is going to push back the publication of First Contact a couple of days…AddEmoticons04279 that on its own is not the end of the world…AddEmoticons04263 Becca probably won’t have time to format it until Wednesday or Thursday anyway. sacando-la-lengua14 Then we have to get the back cover made up… that is Cora’s work. AddEmoticons04235 Then there will be ordering the proof and having it shipped. (Yes, you guessed it… probably UPS again) AddEmoticons04268 If the proof is good I will be looking at putting the order in for the first printing. MAYBE as early as the 27th, allow a week or so for delivery… First week in December. Smiley-Begging The boxes are ready and waiting for that last book… some are quite large, as the orders for accompanying mugs were plentiful.AddEmoticons04258 10-25-31 Love the look of some of those mugs.AddEmoticons04267 12-44-24

Well, going to make this quick, I have more things to do today than I want to think about, but those are the breaks, as my one bro used to say. AddEmoticons04268 20-55-07 I have almost reached the 85% mark on ‘For the King and Elven Empire’, which means I could be finished writing it by the time the copies of FC get here in Dec. super-happy-dance-smiley-emoticon I think I will work on the Novella after that… Surrounded by the Light. giving-thumbs-up-winking-smiley-emoticon Which, oh by the way, I have a cover for. clicking-your-heels-smiley-emoticon As for the rest, I will begin work on ‘Integration’ (more seriously), in the new year. AddEmoticons04237 Should be interesting, especially now that the story is beginning to form more clearly. AddEmoticons04259 10-08-34 Book 3 is coming in clearer than book 2… go figure. smiley-confused005 Book 3 will be called ‘Hunter’s Challenge’ and will be coming out in 2016. smiley-happy120 Which reminds me, it is time for me to settle down and update my Goodreads page with upcoming novels..AddEmoticons04268. that means writing synopsis’, which I hate..AddEmoticons04231. necessary evil. making-bronx-cheer-smiley-emoticon Wish me luck, and stay warm..Smiley-Begging. hoping to have good news to share by this time next week. AddEmoticons04274 22-59-06

Off to write some more… and take care of the Snoop cat. AddEmoticons04225 10-09-00 Hope the good news about him.Smiley-Begging

    Praying with you for the news on Snoop to be good. So happy to hear his weight is back up and he is eating by himself again. I will just be happy to get the box no matter when you ship it. LOL We had a skiff of snow this morning it won’t stick around for long. Sending healing vibes Sarah’ way. So thankful for the update on Snoop. Take care of yourself too.

    Thank you for your well wishes for my health. I started with a round of stomach flu and now have a throat infection….strep maybe? Sending love, hugs, and healing prayers for Snoop. I have fingers, toes, legs, etc crossed that it will be good news. I am home today with Teresa who has so graciously relieved me of the flu and wishing she hadn’t. Hopefully, I will be able to get it finished ASAP.
