So, I'm still without power. Keep hearing about everyone getting power back and praying I'll be next....

Last night it really got to me...sweat was pouring off of me and then I had to torture poor Lily with the meds which evidently did not taste too good. I went to look for a hotel this morning at 6:30am and found one not too far from me that had a room. It's cool, clean, has tv, a fridge and lots of LIGHT and complimentary breakfast.

I'll shower, eat something and then go back and forth to check on my poor, darling little Lily. They said they were taking pets during the crisis because the governor ordered it, but not anymore. She's probably better off at home...I left a cold pack on the floor with a thin towel over it and tried to show it to her before I left the house.

I don't think I'll sleep here overnight...can't bear the thought of leaving Lily by herself that long.

Thank you friends...I hope to be able to talk to each of you soon and read all your status'. I hope you're all doing well.

Hugs from me and Lily

    Nancy, I'm so glad you got a hotel room. It's a shame the hotel wouldn't take animals for those that have no power. I can understand their wanting to get back to "no pets" policy under normal circumstances, but for many they're still struggling with hurricane circumstances and the hotel should allow those people to have their pets with them.

    I'm still praying.
    Hugs to you and Lily - Gwen

    I sure hope you get your power back soon. It's too bad that the hotel won't take poor Lily, but you're probably right that she' better off at home anyway. Less stress for her. I'm glad you can at least spend a little time somewhere with power. You're a good mom to go running back and forth to take care of Lily. Hopefully this situation won't be for too much longer. I know that time just stretches when you're trying to live without any power. emoticon

    Take care! I know what it's like, back in 2012, we were off for a week in 100 plus degrees; it was awful! Glad you're getting a place to cool off! Hugs to you & Lily!

    I hope you get the power back on soon. Maybe you you could buy or borrow a generator so you could run a fan and such. I am praying for you and Lily. emoticon

    I'm sorry to hear that you are still without power. That makes things so difficult for you and poor Lily. I hope the meds are working for her even though she doesn't like them. At least you have someplace to refrigerate the meds and cool off. Hugs!

    I am so sorry your power isn't back on, praying it will be soon. Glad you found a motel room nearby but sorry they won't let you bring Lily. At least you are close enough that you can check on her and the house. I wish you lived nearer Tallahassee you both could stay at our house. Sending hugs and prayers emoticon
