Les and I drove 12 hours and made it home about ten last night. We picked up Journey on the way home. It was weird to wake up with only one dog. I woke up in a panic wondering who I had left outside. :)
I picked up Monte, Jackie and Cleo from the vet this morning and they and I were thrilled to have them home. Shelly brought Bavarian and Sweetheart to me about 12:30 pm. It was great to have them all back home. When one is missing from the pack it just isn't the same.
As you all know from Shelly's lovely pictures, video and text, Sweetheart is continuing to do quite fabulous. She is pretty much up to optimum weight, now she just needs to continue building her muscle. She also needs to shed out her old, ratty feeling hair and grow some nice undercoat for winter.
Her leg is doing fine as I was thrilled to see. She is done with her antibiotics and will not be required to go back on them unless her leg starts to reverse in progress. Les will take her into Dr. Kolar's Thursday for another bandage change. He will also get her weighed in.
I have no pictures or video for you tonight. The drive all day yesterday and evening wiped me out. I have been doing laundry and Sweetheart and I took a nap this afternoon.
I leave for Michigan Wednesday morning at 5:30 a.m to visit my grandmother. I will get home around 1 a.m. on October 8th. I am bittersweet in my feelings about going up there. I want to see my family and especially my grandmother but I also love home and am going to miss my fur kids while I am gone ( and Les too :) ) I will probably try to go down to Texas to be with my friend for her cancer treatment but that will most likely not be until late October. Her cancer has worsened and I am just sick over what she is going through. Please keep her, my grandmother and Sweetheart in your thoughts. I really do appreciate it.
Sorry if tonight's blog was a little bit of a downer, I just wanted to share what is going on with both Sweetheart and myself. Thanks for letting share this with you all, it really does help me!!! We will try and have some pics and maybe a video for you tomorrow.
