I so appreciate every body's kind words and support!
Thought an update on Merit (n family) was overdue...
Merit came home from surgery at the hospital and slowly but surely got stronger and brighter.
Just last weekend I finally felt she'd regained her zest and appetite.
Poor thing was too thin from the pain of chewing (and tummy ulcers?)
But it's been a real roller coaster.
She continues to have new smaller abscesses that develop and need lancing.
Each time I begin to feel confident, there's another setback.
Kinda like this spring, huh?!
Today the vet was here at 8 am to lance a small abscess, then later I returned from a school meeting to find a fast growing new ugly swelling near the original site! soooo
The vet's coming back later...
Good thing we LOVE Dr Link ~
we see her often and have prolly bought her a trip to Europe at this rate!
Fingers crossed n prayers said that this new swelling doesn't go downhill fast.
We've had plenty of fun too despite this wicked weather...
Impossible to believe that Sunday was 32 n snowing and
Monday we enjoyed spring peepers, sunshine and 64 degrees!!!
This morning for April Fool's Day (before the vet came)
I did easy / silly pranks like a whoopie cushion n fake buck teeth, falsehoods about a school delay and stuffing shoes with TP in the toes (last year it was ice).
I had more ideas, but less time. :-(
We also enjoyed silliness when our Leprechaun visited and again caused mischief with green milk, juice n toilet water, upturned furniture and streamers of TP. Thankfully he also filled shoes with rainbow candy and left Lucky Charms!
Although we've not been able to get out fox hunting, we've been exploring pony racing and have had fun cheering for our sweet n talented neighbors The Leathermans as they run ~and won!
We're so ready for some relaxing and EASY play days, but even time to work on outdoor projects and dig in the dirt would be wonderful.
Thanks to you all friends! I'm praying that YOU are well n enjoying warm, sunny days!
