Sunshine Award and Praise for Macy
























Jessica @ Mia Ma Miah's Diaries gave me the Sunshine award, today. It was a great day to receive this award. Mom needed this award. Our furry sister, Macy has not been doing well. She 16 years old and has re-occurring cancer. She became ill day before yesterday (vomiting and diarrhea). Mom was distraught and that would be putting it mildly. Mom was afraid the cancer had progressed to the point of having to make that decision none of us want to discuss. None of us want Macy to suffer. We do not want to be selfish. Macy is very stoic and Mom is usually very stoic, too. Today was different. Mom was "very" emotional. Mom cried out for prayer here and on facebook and "all" of you responded.

First, I will tell you what happened at the vet. Sources say, "Mom cried through the entire vet visit. She had the staff and doctor crying, too." Dr. Jordan, our most favorite vet said, "It's okay. Macy has an intestinal inflammation." He gave her nausea medicine and antibiotics and sent her home. Macy is a bit cat-like even though she is a Cocker Spaniel. After receiving medicine, she was hungry and ready to go back to her normal routine. Mom bought her some organic yogurt, at Dr. Jordan's suggestion and she scarfed it down. The nausea medicine must be some good stuff. For now, Mom does not have to face life without our furry sister and we are "all" thankful.

Back to the Sunshine Award. Everyone who comes here or to mom's blog, Arise 2 Write, deserves this award. Each of you bring Sunshine into our lives (furry and human). We cherish you "all." We are thankful for your thoughts, concern, love, and prayers.

Woofs and Wags,

Sitka

*Please take the award. If you choose not to post it, know we understand. We just want each of you to know how much you are appreciated. Also, we are still having some technical difficulty and pray it will be better, soon.

And thanks so much for the kindness!!

NanaNor's said...

Hi Sitka, So glad Macy's issue wasn't what your mom thought it was. It is very hard on us moms to handle our beloved companions suffering and even harder when the time comes to say goodbye-so I'm glad she didn't need to do that yet. Hoping you get a bit of spoiling too. Thank your mom for the award...you all bless me.
Hugs & pats, Noreen & Reggie-dog

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

Sitka, thank you for the wonderful award. Congrats to you and your mom too. I hope that Macy feels better and better each day. I know how us mommies worry about our babies.

My Sam has only one eye and that eye has been cloudy. So, off to the vet we went yesterday. I was just like your mom...panicked. But, the doctor says Sam can see still although not sure how much. He is taking it easy and has meds to make his eye feel better. Sitka, can you and mom pray that Sam doesn't have glaucoma in that eye? The vet is checking that out as well. Thanks!

ATTIC CLUTTER said...

Awww...thanks for the award! I tried to leave a comment on your Arise 2 Write yesterday and I think it disappeared. Comments weren't working when I had time to be online.

It is good that your sweet dog isn't at her end. Dogs are with us so many hours in a day...it is hard to say good-bye.

Tell Mom thanks for me, and thank you too! for the Sunshine Award. You have both blessed me this week! It is the second time that I received the Sunshine Award within a couple days, so I know God is using my bloggy friends to give me God-hugs! I am so happy to hear that Macy will have more time with your family. Having had to make my own difficult decision last December and now looking for a new pup, I very well understand how you are all feeling!
