I BE OK MOMMY.......


"Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see."
-- Mark Twain

Hi dear friends,

Please help me!! My Mommy has been crying and I don't know how to stop her. This is what happened.

She woke me up bright and early this morning. I was sound asleep when she woke me up and she said I looked like I had just gotten home from a cheap drunk. Do I look drunk to you? She said we was going for a ride. Saturday morning means a visit to Aunt Judy's house. I was very excited!

So up I jumped, put on my harness and was ready to go.

Come on Mommy!! Can I drive?

What? I can't drive!!

I should have know something was wrong. When we got to Imperial Valley and turned right, I started shaking and gave Mommy a dirty look. Left means we're going to Aunt Judy's, Right means to the VET!

But Mommy, it's not time for my yearly stuff!! I don't wanna go in there!! I pleaded for her not to take me in didn't work.

Mommy said I was just gonna get my Bordetella vaccination and have Dr Briles look at little bump under my right armpit. His nurse, Ms Cheryl, had to DRAG me off the bench to get me in the examination room.

They gave me my vaccination. I was a good girl, until she came at me with that thing they stick up your butt!!

OK Mom, they stuck that thing up my butt, so lets get out of here NOW!!

OH NO!!!!!!!! What is all that stuff? Are they gonna use that stuff on me!!

Dr Briles looked at the bump which he says is a lump. He said he wanted to stick a needle in the lump to get a sample to stain. That's when Mommy fell apart and she started crying. Dr Briles took the sample and came back after a little while. He was not real happy with what he saw. He said a bunch of stuff and Mommy kept crying. He said he is concerned about something called "a possible mast cell tumor". So next Thursday, I gotta come back and have it removed and sent to the pathologist to see if it could be Cancer. I know I'll be OK but I'm worried about Mommy now.

Mommy here.......My heart is breaking and I am very scared. I pray that it is nothing. Mona is fine. Isn't acting any different but I will be on pins and needles until the biopsy comes back. I'm always telling Mona to be patient but I have NO PATIENCE when it comes to things like this, not when it's Mona. Thursday can't come soon enough for me and then the agony of having to wait for the results to come back too.

Mona here.....I told you. Any suggestions on how I can perk Mommy up?

While we were waiting to pay our bill and making arrangements for Thursday, we visited with some of the other patients there. I saw a lady feeding a tiny puppy, that's me sniffing it. The lady feeding it said it is a little girl and she is only 4 days old. She had 4 other pups in a carrier. Their Mommy died giving birth along with 3 other pups. So sad. They are rottweilers.

There was also this little fella. His Mama said he is a pit mix but doesn't know with what. I think he's got some dachshund in him.

Mommy was happy to see the little ones and they did make her smile but Mommy is still at it.

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

Hello Mona's mommy.... we understand how much you're worried and scared. We feel the same way but we also know Dr. always gives you some scary words before the result comes back. Please don't cry... Our paws crossed for you and your little Mona.

Those pups make us smile, too.

Mona, I am going to say a special prayer just for you....tell your mommy to try not thinking about it....I think you both should watch a funny movie and have a really good treat.

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

Mommy loves you a whole lot, so I guess you have to be strong for both of you. The odds are great that you're just fine and even if the lump is caused by something bad it can be fixed. All your friends will be counting on that, too and sending you "be well" thoughts and praying, too, that you stay feeling just as good as you do right now for a long, long time.

love, Lola

Oh Mona...sometimes the mommy's just have to leak like that. I think it scares 'em real bad when stuff happens with us. But here's what you can do - cuddle up real close to her and gives her kisses. That seems to help my momma when she's sad about something.

And Mona's mommy - my mom says that she sure understands where you're coming from. And that waiting is the hardest part cuz there's nothing you can DO. And it always feels better to be DOING something. (You can tell I didn't write that cuz sometimes I thinks it feels better NOT to be doing something. Humans are weird.) She says to hang in there and she's gonna send you pawsitive thoughts and wishes and prayers that everything turns out A-OK!

Wiggles & Wags,

Sagira said...

Mona, my mom wanted me to tell your mom that she knows exactly how she is feeling right now. The waiting is the worst. We are still going through all of this with Samick and it is very stressful. Try to keep your chin up and stay positive. I know, easier said than done. If your mommy ever wants to talk, my mommy is here.

A MilShelb Mom said...

Mona, my Mom said to tell your Mom that we will keep you and her in our prayers. We know it must be very scary. Our advice is to give your Mom lots of kisses! That's what we do to help our Mom.
Mom also says to please keep us posted.

Mona and Mommy, Twinkie's mom here. I'm scared too, but having been through that a short year ago, I've learned to think positive thoughts. I wish you the best and hopefully regardless of the type of tumor, you caught it soon enough and Mona will be just fine. I know what kills you. You can't explain...same here. I see their scared eyes and that gets me the most. We care though, and they trust us. So, we'll keep our hands and paws crossed for your girl too. Hang in there!
Lots of love,
Twinkie and her mommy

I know it's hard for people not to worry! We had a very good friend who had several mast cell tumors and he lived for five or six years past his diagonsis and tumor removal. So, if it is the worst news, there is still hope!


pibble said...

Hi, Mona,

Tiger and the Houston Pittie Pack sent me over. Your mommy is very concerned about you and there's nothing I can say to change that; she loves you (and I can see why! you're adorable!)!

We're keeping all of our paws crossed and praying for good results. Whatever this is, mommy found it early, so that's always good. Besides, it's not going to be anything, we just know it.

Give your mommy kisses for us! And take care of yourself!
