Y'all know that I still take care of Mom even though I'm retired. Sometimes that means in the middle of the night, since Mom's disease isn't predictable at all!
Lately, Mom has started having ouches in her stomach and the doctors don't know why yet. Mom thinks it is the same thing Grandmom has called Chron's Disease but they don't know yet. It has been waking Mom up at night and nothing helps except her heating pad.
But lately, I've had some extra help when Mom isn't feeling good! Francine always knows when Mom is sick or sad and comes to make Mom feel better. For a cat, she has remarkable instincts and will come from anywhere in the house to sit with Mom and make happy purr noises to her.
