Better Days!

Good Sunday, evfurry buddy!  We are late getting our blog out this week but we want to tell you a few things.  Last night we had a big, big storm!  I was lucky to have my new Thunder Shirt and even though I don't like to put it on, it works so good!  I went into my bed in my Mom's room and slept very good, no crying and no feeling scared.  About 2 am it got worse, and I did get up on my Mom's bed, just to take care of her, but we are both fine!  Last week my best friend Lori came THREE times to take me for long walkies.  Boy, I just love her!  We just zoom right along.  It will be about three weeks or more before my Mom can take me, but thats OK.  Everything is going good right now.


Hi Evfurry Buddy, Jo here!  It has been a rocky couple of weeks, but we seem to be doing quite well now.  I got sick and visited an internist, who told me I had gastritis which often happens with major surgery due to stress.  I was a total wipe-out for several days until the meds started working and now I am doing great!  Don't really have all my energy back yet but daily, I am better!  I started back with PT last Friday, and won't miss a day this week!  KB told me I am tough as H#LL so what can I do but believe her!  Thanks, evfurry buddy, for sweet notes and well wishes, they mean so very much to me.  If the weather stays OK, I am planning a walk to a drugstore for today, its about 4 blocks total, so I should be just fine.  I have been trying to visit various of our friend's blogs, and I am limited to about an hour on the computer at a time (they want to see you up moving rather than sitting!) so I will try to get to everyone, but I'm slow about it!  We will probably stay a once a week blog for another month, and then get back to normal.  Its so good to see our adopted cousin Merdie at Khamp Khyra for a visit!


Hello All, Ali Z here!  It always seems like it is a big fuss about something or another with Mom and Stella.  Really, scared of storms, who can even imagine it!  Just go get in under a bed and you are fine!  Get sick, just hork up a little and you are fine!  No sense to fussing about evfurry thing!  So I have been leaving Mom on her own more, its good for her not to be so dependent on me.  I can get back to my music and dance practice.

We all want to thank you again for greeting cards, flowers and other good wishes, its just meant so much!

Love and hugs,

Jo, Stella and Ali Zophia

Jo, I'm glad you're hanging in there. You've been through a lot lately and I hope that trip to the store got to be a little victory march! Keep at it. Healing wishes thrown your way from California.

Glad the thundershirt worked so well for Stella. I got your note about l-theanine. I'll send an email your way tomorrow. Must retire for the night before I fold=)

HI Stella, that is so kind of you, helping your Mom get through that scary thunderstorm. I don't think I have experienced a proper thunderstorm yet, we don't often have them in Scotland apparently, but Gail tells me that I can hide under her bed if we ever get one!
Toodle pip!
Bertie.
PS For Gail - fingers crossed this week that there are no more set backs in the recovery this week. You must be looking forward to things getting back to normal. I remember when I had some major surgery a few years back, being warned how much energy the healing process burns up.

Cloud the Wonder Dog said...

Hi Stella! I'm soooo glad the Thundershirt is working for you, hooray!!! :-)

Jo, sorry the road to recovery has been bumpy. I'm glad you're feeling much better now. Enjoy your walk!

Oh Ali, throwing up is the answer for everything, isn't it? Silly humans...

Hope you all have a great week, even Ali, horking under the bed during dance practice...

Luv,
Cloud
