NOTICE!! NOTICE! We are still around HOWEVER...(and an update)

Mom Kim here-

Let me do a bit of a recap of this past week-

MONDAY(3/31) - Diva's Bailie (Westie cuzin) and Shasta both had their dental work done - Diva Bailie came out better with NO teeth left behind at the vet's while Diva Shasta left one.  Otherwise, Diva Shasta is doing fine and eating as always.
TUESDAY - the workday was nothing different however
sis picked me up after work then went to my place 
where in less than a half hour both Shiloh'n Diva Shasta went out then came back in to eat then back out again.  After they came back in, sis and I left for Winchester, KS where my Aunt Elaine and Uncle David lived.  My aunt Elaine had been in failing health for the past few-  months - we had been told that it was now only
 a matter of hours before she passed.    When we got 
there many of their children were home now as well as 2 of Elaine's sisters. 
WEDNESDAY - Usual workday again except for one thing - my sis called me after she got a phone call that even though we knew it was coming, we all still kept hoping and praying for a miracle - it still seems so unbelievable
when our Uncle David called to tell us that our Aunt Elaine had died a short time earlier. 
Also in the afternoon on this day, I had an eye doctor appointment - we tend to JUMP and get to the eye 
doctor almost as soon as I notice any worsening of my eye condition (for anyone new here, I am blind in my left eye so when something changes in my remaining vision then I get to my eye doctor ASAP)   And yes, things had indeed changed for the worse.  Exactly how worse will be determined when I see my cornea specialist NEXT Tuesday, 4/8.  I do know that my visual acuity this past Frday was basically 20/70 - now I am reading about the level of legal blindness but since that is my DISTANT vision, it doesn't affect my ability to work - at least not much at all.  This problem is by no means new and I have a few blog posts about it - especially since late January of 2010.
Ok - now AFTER my appointment we headed to Rossville, KS where my Aunt Eloise resides in the local nursing facility there.  After my sis and I visited with our Aunt Eloise for a while, reminisced about her husband (our Ucle Harry) we returned home.
 THURSDAY - usual workday.  The Beaglebratz loveds that I was home with them all evening - found out that the visitation for my Aunt Elaine will be Friday (4/4)
 evening with the funeral Saturday afternoon - in other
words, won't be around much at all until possibly Sunday (4/6).

On another note -  I had been tninking about this then when I had a comment on the post about requesting POTP for Diva's Shasta and Westie cuzin Bailie - 

about making Diva Bailie an Honorary Blogville member - she does visit here sometimes and Shiloh'n Diva Shasta visit there too
