It's a fairly quiet day so far. Kent was at work from 6:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. and is now at home. Brian is here with us and may spend the night again. Heather is at work right now. Her hours today are noon to 6:00 p.m.

On a more sober note: Baby Jane is worse. We did not expect her to make it through the night but she did. I tried to feed her this morning with an eyedropper, but her mouth is clenched so tight I couldn't get the eyedropper in very far. Every now and then she sort of stretches and her breathing is very shallow. Everyone here checks on her every time they pass her. She has had a long life and she has arthritis and a cateract in her right eye. I don't think her hearing is all that good either and at times she acts like she has alzheimers. I marvel at her survival skills all these years. For a 21 year old cat she has lived a full life as an outside and inside cat. As she aged she was kept inside.
