Erin's first grade teacher, Christy Hanson came over after school yesterday. I tiptoed next door (where Kitty Muffin lives) and snuck her into our house for the photo op below. Two questions probably pop to mind: Why does Erin's cat live next door? And why does a visit Miss Hanson merit a visit by the cat to Chez Willie and Teddy? KM lives next door because Walter doesn't care for cats in his house (and I suppose neither do Teddy, Willie, nor Luke). She came for a visit because Miss Hanson fostered her before she became Erin's.

Erin has had a little (big?) run in with gastritis today (talk about a problem that none of us needed). I've got to tell you, cancer is not for the faint of heart or the weak of stomach. No details to ruin your day, but I am currently thankful that my sofa has dark, rich colors.


  1. Erin- Your cat is beautiful. Knew there was something more than soccer, knock knock jokes and the clinic we had in common. I am a true cat lover.

    Sending you hugs and kisses
    Love shari

  2. a cat! whoo hoo for the cats!

  3. OMG! Could she just catch a break?? Nobody needs tummy issues, esp./ not Erin. Know we are praying for her to feel good, eat lots, and gain weight! Pretty kitty! Love, Missy

  4. Cats are special friends. Sorry for the stomach stuff. We hope you feel much better real soon.

  5. Kitty Muffin looks a lot like our kitty, Daisy. I'm so glad Erin has a kitty, even if she lives next door. Hoping the stomach issues will soon go away and Erin will be able to have good appetite soon!

  6. Great to see a great picture of you up there too, Vickie!

    Thinking of you all the time and praying for that beautiful girl.

    I have a book for Erin - I'll try to get it into the mail TODAY!

    Lots of love, Lara

  7. I am pleading with the powers that be that Erin rebounds from all this...she's so adorable!!

  8. I'm glad to see Erin's smiling face and it is really nice to see yours. You take all the pictures and we rarely see you!
    So sorry about the stomach problem. I hope Erin is feeling better soon.

  9. Hi just droppin by to check on you guys. That stinks that Erin is having stomach issues she needs a break. I love the cat he is so pretty. We are always praying for you guys.

  10. Miss Erin,

    I hope your stomach settles down and behaves itself pronto! We're praying for you and will visit as soon as you are up to it.

    Love and hugs,

    Reeves Family
    P.S. - Please give Teddi a pat for us!

  11. My heart goes out to the Buenger family today and always. I didn't know Erin, but I know Kat and everything I have heard or read about Erin is so wonderful. She was truly a strong, sweet child. I know that God must have sent her as a messanger for us all to learn from. May God Bless you all and keep you safe.

    My deepest sympathy

  12. Praying for all of you. May God fill your hearts with peace and may He hold you tight in the days ahead.
