RIP Loki

It's around 5 a.m. We just woke up and found one of our cats, Loki, a little too quiet and seeming to be sleeping a little too soundly. Sometime between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. he must have passed away in his sleep.

I'm only writing for a minute. I know I have to catch up here about and haven't written in a couple of weeks. I know I should be sharing more about what else is going on but I'll have do it at another time.

RIP Loki.

Ugh - more stress

Last night Elizabeth called to tell me that she is going to be staying with a friend for a few days. She is feeling very harassed by her neighbors. The wife has told Elizabeth that she thinks her husband might leave her since she cannot give him a child, and that if Elizabeth doesn't give them this baby, their marriage ending will be all her fault. Elizabeth is smart enough to know it wouldn't be her fault, and has assured me over and over again she would never give the baby to these people, but the stress is driving her crazy and needed to get away from them for a few days. She spoke to the landlord, who doesn't seem like he wants to do much to help her.

I spoke to the attorney today, who seems to be getting nicer each time I speak with her. She apologized to me and said she felt bad that I had to deal with all of this. We talked about how adopting is an adventure, because most of these birth mothers have problems to which we cannot relate.

The attorney told me that she also got a call today from Elizabeth's regular OB saying that she did not show up for her monthly appointment on Friday, and hasn't called to reschedule. This is also the doctor that does Elizabeth's monthly drug testing. Our attorney called Elizabeth today and left a message for her on her cell phone, and said she will call me back as soon as she has a talk with Elizabeth to hear what is going on directly from her. It's almost 4 p.m. so I may not hear anything more until tomorrow.

Work is very busy. I have deadlines coming up all over the place. It's getting closer and closer until Baby S is here, and for that we are so happy and excited, but today I am stressing.
