Mommy Update and Me needs POTP too.
First off me and my sisters want to wish all of our fur friends Mommies the best mother's Day ever to be!~! and to thank every one for the cards, thoughts and prayers for our Mommy. She just
hasn't been up to blogging. So much has been going on that we have missed in Blogville but you guys are ALWAYS close in our hearts and on our minds.
This afternoon us girls had to leave for Bentley's house for a awhile. Me and Prissy have stayed there many times before but Sammie Jean was scared and didn't want to go. We tried to tell her it would be a great adventure but she cried and so did the Mommy.
Mommy's is having surgery Tuesday at St Joseph. She will be in the hospital for 4 to 5 days if there are no complications. Then she
will be going to Aunt Pam for a week or so. She has asked for a
FMLA for 4 weeks but GOD FORBID it could be longer. We can't stand the thought of being away from the Mommy for that long.
We are encouraged by what the surgeon thinks but we are still pretty scared. In the meantime, it hasn't helped that Mommy is very worried about me. I am having lots of issues right now and Dr Briles is afraid I will be joining my beloved brother before too long. I'm not as bright eyed or bushytailed as I used to be but I can still move pretty fast when a tree rat dares to get too close. I'll let her tell you about it.
The Mommy here......
My sweet Mona hasn't been doing well of late. Her liver functions are elevated which means her Cushings is starting to take control. She has gained 2.7 pounds in less than 3 months and now has a potbelly like most dogs with Cushings develop. Her medication isn't doing the job it once did. Dr Briles is more concerned with her heart than the Cushings. He believes she has congestive heart failure now and not just a heart murmur anymore. She still has problems walking with her dislocated knee but pain meds do seem to help. She still wants to play with her stuffies and her sisters and there are times that I still see the sparkle in her eyes. Most of the time she looks so sad. Dr Briles says she will let me know when she is ready to cross the bridge. My heart breaks at the thought but I know that when the time comes Weenie will be at the gates gates waiting for her.
My eyes are tearing up so we will close for now. Please pray for my girl.
The Mommy, Sarah.
