Last week I was enjoying the trees that were starting to bloom. Spring is my favorite season even if it does cause my eyes to water and my nose to twitch and makes me sneeze a lot.
 When I got up Sunday morning and stepped onto the porch with Norma Jean, we were both surprised to see snow. I know many of you in the East had snow, but this was only our second snow of the winter/spring.
 After experiencing 70 degree days in January and February, it didn't seem right to have snow on the first day of spring. Then yesterday morning when we got up the water in the fountain was frozen. So far, not so good.

Norma Jean had her sutures removed yesterday. She was very excited about getting rid of the hat and promised to be good. So far, she has kept her promise. The vet said the incision looked good and the growth was just a minor thing, not something to worry about. Best of all, Fudge and Noah have lost interest in following her. I guess the  growth had quite a scent for them.  It's a relief for her and me that they're no longer interested.
This morning little Mackey had another seizure. In January when she had the first one, it was so short that we weren't sure it was a seizure, but this time there was no doubt. It lasted about four very long minutes and she had the classic signs, twitching, drooling etc. She's resting now in her basket.
The vet said if she has one more, we'll do tests to see what's causing them. Mackey is a very sweet little girl and seeing her so frightened is so difficult for us. I'm hoping there's something we can do to help her.
Tomorrow is going to be an exciting day for us, but I'll wait till then to let you know what's happening. Till tomorrow!

We didn't get any snow, but we got some cold and a whole lot of wind. Now today it is warm again - crazy seasons!!! Good on the report for Norma Jean. But we are sorry to hear about Mackey. Seizures can be a terrifying thing to watch and a very difficult thing to pinpoint the cause. All the best to Mackey.

We got a little snow but not much. We are happy to hear about Norma Jean and praying for Mackey. We know how scary seizures can be.

Oh Mackey! I have little focal seizures. I take zonicamide. It helps me a lot. Norma Jean, you wouldn't be Norma Jean without a bunch of guys following you - but probably not your relatives...
