Sorry we haven't posted in awhile but The Mommy has been very sick. The pain she had in her knee turned into a STREP INFECTION and she was admitted to the hospital Oct 29th and had surgery on her knee on Halloween day.She came home from the hospital this Monday. She really didn't come home to or house but is staying for now at our Aunt Pam & Uncle Sonny's house. The day she went into the hospital, Ron who is with DROH, came & got us and took us to Aldine Animal.to be boarded for a few days, she thought. Ron took Evander with him because he said it wasn't fair that the Mommy should have to pay to board a foster....Mommy would have done it anyway. The Mommy has to have HOME HEALTH CARE come everyday for two weeks to have the packing and dressings removed & changed and also they put something called a PICK LINE (or something) in her arm so she can have antibiotics directly into a vein once a day.
All of this is very sad and scary for us and the Mommy doesn't feel very well right now and she had to make a very hard decision that has torn her to pieces and my Aunt Pam said she has been crying since Sunday when the decision was made. I am turning this post over to my Aunt Pam because it is too hard for me to go on.
Please keep The Mommy, Jacks and Toby in your prayers.....Mona
My sister Sarah and the family have had a very big scare. Had the infection not have been caught in time, she could have lost her leg or her life. We are very thankful she is alive and still with us. My sister has never taken very good care of herself but she will do everything and anything for anybody else & any of her dogs. Our cousin, Shirley, and Sarah's best friend, Martha went to the hospital with me on Sunday and begged her to give up two of her dogs. Due to her health ( diabetes, arthritis and hypertension, a messed up back and now this, we and her doctors felt she can't handle three dogs anymore or foster. She can still do other things to help DROH. I know she feels we have forced her into giving two of them up but it is necessary and she understands why it is necessary. Believe me, it was not an easy decision for her to make. She agreed to give the boys back to DROH. It was decided that JACKS would HATE being an only dog because he is so active and playfuland would need company. Toby is just to big for her to handle at times. Mona has always been very independant and most of the time likes to play by herself with her toys and would ignore the boys except when they got out of line and she had to set them straight. I am turning this back to Mona now.
Jacks and Toby were picked up yesterday by Ron & surrendered to DROH. The Mommy thinks the word surrender sounds like such a nasty word, like she didn't want them anymore. I miss my brothers but we all agreed we wanted the Mommy to get better and stronger and hopefully stay that way. The people that are fortunate enough to adopt Jacks or Toby will know how much me and The Mommy loved the boys and will let us stay in touch and maybe see them once in a while.
Jacks and Toby want their girlfriends, Reina & Lorenza, to know how much they will miss visiting their blogs. Toby said Lorenza has been the only girl he has ever loved and that she will be always in his heart. I don't know when or if the Mommy will ever post again or want to keep our blog alive...WHAT WOULD WE CALL IT NOW? Mona & the Mommy?
Thanks for being our friends, keep my brothers in your thoughts and pray that the Mommy will smile again soon.
