Friendly Fill-Ins Week 338

Time for the fill-ins. I came up with the first two sentences and my co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with the second two. If you didn’t do a post for them, you can also answer in the comment section. Thank you to all who participate. Don’t forget to add your link to the hop so everyone can visit you. The link is open until Wednesday night.

1. On holidays, I usually have a second serving of _________________________.
2. I am thankful for ______________, ________________ and ________________________.
3. I would like to invite _________ over for a feast.
4. _________ was a blessing in disguise.
My answers:
1. On holidays, I usually have a second serving of appetizers. They are my favorite part of the meal- cranberry cheddar and crackers and some spinach dip with tortilla chips.
2. I am thankful for my mom, my hubby and all my cats.
3. I would like to invite Nicolas Cage over for a feast.  ( How many of you knew that would be my answer?).
4. Emmy’s liver growth was a blessing in disguise. Back in August, the internist was checking on that for me and happened to notice the fluid around her heart. She was symptom free of congestive heart failure so by the time she had symptoms it would have been too late to help her.
Emmy update: The internist said she had the least amount of fluid since this began so she did not need to have it tapped. That was excellent news.
Her blood work did show a rise in phosphorous levels so see will be on a phosphorous binder as soon as it arrives by mail.
We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus. My flashback is from November 2014. Angel Phoebe and Angel Snowball cuddling on the bed.

    Stay warm, dear friends!

  3. That is very good news about Emmy. Angel Phoebe and Angel Snowball look very sweet together.

    Hugs, Teddy

  8. Lulu: “That’s great news about Emmy’s fluid around her heart, and lucky that you found out in time!”
    Chaplin: “Yes, although Dennis’s heart condition was also caught in time to treat it, his old friend Dory wasn’t so lucky and passed away unexpectedly from the same thing Dennis had.”
    Charlee: “A heart is an important thing, that’s for sure. We send lots of purrs for Emmy’s to stay healthy.”
