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,
*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.
