I spoke with Chuck and he told me that it was okay that I give you an update on his situation. I apologize that I didnâ€™t do this before, but at that time, Chuck felt it was best not to say anything; until, of course, he heard how much you all have missed him and really wanted to hear how he was doing. That made him feel so much better; even though his life has been in a true turmoil in the past few months.
Chucks health is not so hot. His own disability with muscle degeneration has progressed. Unfortunately, he is using a wheelchair at times. There are some days he can use his cane. (I just found out he is only 35) He is unable to work right now and he had to move to a much cheaper apartment. To add insult to injury, his computer crashed and he said he would not be online for at least another year due to his income. Thereâ€™s more
His kitty Tiger had gotten sick again with bladder crystals forming within the urethra. Since this happened on a weekend, Chuck had to take him to one of those emergency vets. In order to save him, he would have to come up with over $1,500.00!!! (Wow, I didnâ€™t know that it would cost that much for surgery!)â€¦ As you know, heâ€™s been very ill with his disability and this type of money was not available. So, he told me that he had to actually tell the vet to put Tiger to sleep. He told me how mortified he was and he broke down at the vets. I was in tears too He called his friends in dispair, and told them of the situation. A few minutes after hanging up, his friend called the vets office and offered to save Tigerâ€™s life! Thank God! So, Tiger is doing much better, he's on a special diet of course and can't have treats with Socrates.
Oh well, he's gotten into shape though! :LOL: Iâ€™m so happy for Chuck. He told me that if it wasnâ€™t for Guy and Helen, Tiger would not be here today. Wow, talk about true angels in his life!
Socrates is very good. Ornery as ever. Thank God for that. His landlady seems to be very nice and his friends do come and visit him now and again. He appeared to be happy when I spoke with him. We had a very upbeat conversation.
There have been a number of people that have asked about him and if youâ€™d like his address or phone number, he asked that you contact me. You can pm me if you want I will definitely send it to you as soon as I see your pm I'm sure he'd love to get a note from anyone who has the time to write. He wishes everyone well and he sends big hugs and purrs to you!
Well, there ya have it. I pray that his situation gets much lighter, I will be sending him a little package. Something I hope will make him smile. He has given so much of himself to others.
Love, Peace &
