Actually, I have been sick. I have been battling the early stages of kidney disease for over 2 years now. Mom has been worrying herself sick over me.
And then last Christmas, I had convulsions that really sent Mom over the edge. She rushed me to the doctor and they found out I now also have hypothyroidism.
Poor Mom, she has been fretting and spoiling me nonstop. It makes her feel good and me too if I must admit.
Happily, with medication (that I take without complaining) all my problems are under control and my doctor says I will be around for a long time.
So, now I am just enjoying being with Mom. We cuddle every day!
Last weekend I posed while she painted my portrait. She wanted to be able to have me out on her new patio with her but I am on indoor baby. So she has my portrait as a substitute.
Here I am hanging on the back of the shed so she can see me all the time.
The bad part is that I miss Mom so much when she is outside. I wait at the door for her to come back in. I don't want to miss a second with her.
