How we do the day after chemo...




My little dog--a heartbeat at my feet.

When I am knocked off my feet, there is one little boy in this house who I can count on meeting me where I am.  Most days anyhow.

Back shortly with a full update...

  3. Dogs are such 'knowing' companions when we don't feel well. It is always nice to be met 'where we are'.

    Sorry to hear you are 'knocked off your feet' dear Vicky.

    Light and love coming your way ...

  5. I'm just smiling here! Buster was just a year old, full of zest and energy, and there I was, laid out like a dead fish wondering if I could ever move again. He would jump up on the bed, stare in my eyes, and I'd just say, Mommie's sick! He knew. . . and he laid down carefully and stayed with me, no matter how long it was. It was a bonding time for us, and I'm so thankful he was there. He still checks on me, staring at my face until I tell him, Mommie's ok, or Mommie's sick. He just knows what it means. Praying for you!!!

  9. Our boys totally want a dog! Crosby is too cute and he makes me want a dog too! My Mom was just on floor six this past week and I kept my eye out for you. Glad you are feeling better and home with your buddy. Take care old neighbor!

  11. They do bring SO MUCH COMFORT and are incredibly faithful, aren't they? Listen, girly, we recently witnessed a miracle here in Fresno. A pastor friend's wife should not have lived after severe complications following giving birth to their 7th child. She had five surgeries in two days, including a hysterectomy, received 23 pints of blood, lived through a hemoglobin of 2.9 (UNHEARD OF), and woke up after an induced sleep and intubation for nearly ten days. The doctors were not optimistic but many, MANY people prayed for her and today, she held her baby for the first time and saw her other children. Today she brushed her own teeth and had a coherent conversation. Today she walked though she still needs physical therapy. Monday she may go home from the hospital. She was expected to never beat the odds. God hears and answers prayer. Praying and begging for YOUR complete healing and recovery. Miracles are still happening every day. LOVE YOU.
