Still Sick and Very Discouraged

Hi dear friends,

Sorry we haven't been around in a while, but Mommy is still sick, she's on antibiotics now, and just doesn't feel well at all. At least it isn't the swine flu or even flu and thank the Lord, no fever. It's a bacterial larynx infection. Mommy isn't supposed to talk and if you know my Mommy, you know that is very hard to do. Yesterday was Rob's rosary and Mommy didn't go because she was feeling so bad and today it has been very cold and stormy so she didn't go to the funeral either. She is very sad because she feels guilty that she didn't go but the family didn't want her to get out in the bad weather and get sicker. I don't want her to get sicker either.

I've got to tell you this. My Mommy is not a very good patient and, well, talks kinda crazy when she doesn't feel well. Yesterday she called my Aunt Judy, not my real aunt, and asked her for a favor. She was crying and said if something happens to her, would she come get me and make sure nothing happens to me and if she couldn't keep me, make sure DROH gets me back. WAIT A MINUTE!!! Mommy can't go anywhere without me. NOW, I'M CRYING TOO!!

Last night, Mommy told Aunt Pam, my real aunt, that if anything does happen to her to make sure she calls Judy. Aunt Pam doesn't care for dogs but my Uncle Sonny loves me. After the funeral today, Aunt Pam and Uncle Sonny came over to check on Mommy and said something that made the Mommy very happy.....Uncle Sonny wants me!!! He will play with me, give me treats and let me even cuddle with him when he takes naps. I love my Uncle Sonny.

Mommy hasn't been able to get her George fix in several weeks now since we have been staying home on the weekends, being sick messes everything up, so Aunt Judy sent this picture of George with Bandit napping. George always makes Mommy happy and she wishes she could just reach through the computer screen and grab him. I'm not jealous of George but then I'm always on Mommy's lap to make sure he doesn't get all her sugars.

Mommy found the picture of babies in heaven and thought what a wonderful place it must be. It made her think of Baby Lucas and Baby Chloe and she could imagine them there now playing with precious Jody , watched over by my sister Samantha and all the DWB dogs and kitties we have lost this year. Too many to count but never forgotten. Rob would be there too, Grandpa to all, because he did love grand kids.

Love, kisses and {{{huggies}}} to all....Mona

Dear Mona, Now that your mom has the medicine for the right sick thingy... she will get well very much soon.
Please tell her not to worry about ANYTHING. She will be fine soon, with your love and attention.
I have my paws crossed for both of you. I am sending wished for a very HEALTHY Christmas.

It's easy to get down when ill. It's great your mom's fear for you was alleviated by your Uncle Sonny.
