What the Heck's Going On With This Here Blog?




Okay, without getting into the gory details, I was sick. And when a girl's sick she just doesn't feel good. (It wasn't my teeth but a nasty bacterial infection.) But, through magic of pharmaceuticals I'm back! Bright eyed and bushy tailed.

My little dog Bonnie, on the other hand, isn't fairing so well. Her tail ain't wagging :-(

To make a long story (and ordeal) very short, my little cairn terrier has an aggressive form of melanoma, and after having her toes amputated is not doing all that well. So I am busy nursing her. I pray that she won't have to have chemotherapy, but it's looking as if we'll have to go that route.

Give me a week or so to get my act together and I will be back up and running. Thanks for all the lovely letters and your kind thoughts, I am not all that bad off. Nothing life threatening I promise.

Check out pic of Bonnie in better days, and Bonnie, like her mama a little older, grayer, and less spry.

Yes, good to see you back! Glad you're feeling better. But poor Bonnie! I really hope Bonnie gets better, too.

I'm so sorry about your dog. That's heartbreaking. Praying for you both.

Alix said...

Elizabeth, no!!! I'm so glad YOU are okay, but poor sweet Bonnie!

What a darling little gal she is. I'm so dreadfully sorry she is suffering, but it seems she is in the best of care. Still, doggie chemo can't be much fun to look forward to. I shall send prayers up to the Big Guy for both of you. Hope to see you and Bonnie back soon. And hope BOTH your tails are bushy and wagging.

I'm so glad to see you back even if you will be sporadic for a bit. All love to your valiant little Bonnie. It is terrible when our pets are sick. And I'm glad you are feeling better.

I'm so sorry you've been sick. Hope your little dog feels better without further treatment. I've missed you in blogland!

Jenn said...

oh poo :-( I'll keep little cute Bonnie in my prayers. Oddly enough, I was just thinking about you yesterday wondering how you were doing & planned to pop over & send you a message today but as fate would have it you posted. Bizarre :-) Glad to hear you're feeling better too.
