Picked up Widget (see above) from the Animal Hospital today and she’s sooooo much better. Gary and I are both so relieved because last Friday it looked like she wasn’t long for this world! Now she has a bandaged paw and a shaven belly but apart from that she seems okay.
Gary and I have both been having trouble sleeping because we’ve been so stressed worrying about her. Now at last I feel that things are getting back to normal. Did two pages of Emily Swann yesterday and managed one page on Sunday so it hasn’t been a total washout but it hasn’t been that great either.
My new goal is to edit at least one chapter of Emily Swann a week. Until Friday when Widget became ill I was on target for that one but obviously I’ve slipped behind a bit now. I’m not beating myself up for putting the health of my little Widget before my long term writing goals because I believe what I did was right and I’d do it again exactly the same way if I had to!
