In happier news, my mom went yesterday for her 3 month MRI check up. The doctors found no evidence that the tumor is growing back! Needless to say we were all very happy and relieved.
My mom really misses Luigi. I didn't bring him with me this time because I knew we had some doctor appointments to go to, and errands to run while I was here. Not only does she miss his company, she misses feeding him. Luigi gained a pound or two while she was in Michigan. I'm sure he misses all the extra goodies also.
