An Update

Hey ya'll...

Sorry I haven't done much but read your blogs, but I wanted to say thank you for the enjoyment you give me.

You see, my mother is now in hospice.  She has congestive heart failure and she's not doing well.  As you know, I have a brother with Alzheimer's, so it's been a challenge from the start.

Thankfully, we have a wonderful hospice nurse (the same one that led my father out of this world) and a lovely lady that makes my mom all sparkly clean three times a week.

I'm there every evening to make dinner, throw some laundry in, clean floors and chat up mom.  Clynt is doing the hard duty of just being there all day.  Thankfully,  with early-onset Alz, he forgets most of it!! 

Please know that your blogs bring needed joy in my life and that I think of you all every day.

love,
Barbara

Godspeed Spike. You will be missed.

Spike took his last adventure on Earth just before Christmas Day.  His family gave him the greatest, most full life.  He will be missed by his family and many, many others.

Godspeed little man.  Thank you for showing us the wonderfulness of living. 

(His mom took this picture two years ago on Memorial Day.  Do you see the halo?)

A CAT scan has revealed that Tweedles lung is twisted (Lung Lobe Torsion).

She is in surgery right now.

Pray very hard for her.

Tweedles is in ICU - Power Of The Paw Requested

Tweedles fever came back and she is now in ICU on oxygen. 

The doctors are trying to get the fever down so they can put a scope in her throat to see what she aspirated into her lungs.  They can't do that while she has a fever.  They believe she somehow aspirated something, and aspiration pneumonia is not as easy to fix as "regular" pneumonia. 

Georgie, of course, is beside herself.  Paulette is also recovering from spinal surgery, and she too has a fever (but won't go to the doctor!!).  The power of the paw and many prayers are needed.

And if you still have any green papers, these bills are piling up.  You all have been soooooo generous so far - let's take it the extra mile if we can.

Georgie and Paulette (and Twee) send their most grateful thanks for your awesome generosity, and are overwhelmed that so many people love Tweedles.  They asked me to emphasize that they have no way of expressing how thankful they are for loving people like you.
