Update on Dewey
Dewey has nice clean white teeth now! :) However, he does have several problems. For starters, he was dehydrated. His calcium level is way too high. He has a kidney and a bladder infection. The vet is concerned that he may have a form of malignent cancer which may be causing the calcium elevation. At this point, it's too soon to know ANYTHING for sure...so I'm going positive until I have proof that there is something serious that I need to worry about. He has antibiotics for 14 days, and then she will want to see him again for more blood work to try to determine the cause of the inflated calcium levels. Thanks for all of your kind thoughts and prayers for my sweet 'boy'. :)
I just have to share with the world at large that my birthday (2-26-08) was super special from start to finish. My dear friend, Dazey Darlene, started my day with a special phone call with a birthday wish!! Thank you so much, my EBFF!! :) And my siblings called throughout the day. I spent the day with one of my seesters -- Sug and BIL Fred, and we had a great time. She made our most favorite Wacky Chocolate Cake for us too. ;) Yum!!! And such FUN gifties--a bucket of ground wheat bran to start our meal worm farm for the Bluebirds, and conduit pipe to raise my Shepherd's crooks up higher so that the deer can't eat the birdseed, and HUGE pinecones from South Carolina so I can make me some peanut butter/birdseed coated pinecones to hang for the birdies, and and and a stitchery kit and a candlewicking pillow kit and and and hmmmm
Then we went to Lowe's and bought me a wonderful storm door, and a new spading fork for the garden, and the most special telescoping rake, and birdseed and and oh I know, I got me a WOOD CHISEL!!!! Now how fun will THAT be????? :D Oh, and a roll of chicken wire to try to discourage the deer from eating my baby bushes and trees and flowers and such. :D
When we got back to my house there was a florist box on my porch. My dear sweet quilting niece, Glorie, sent me the most BEAUTIFUL pink tulips and purple irises...oh my goodness, they are just breathtakingly beautiful!! No one has ever sent me tulips OR irises before!
One of my seesters played the most beautiful song for me...over the phone...on our Mom's piano which she now has....how very special that was!! A Dream of Love (the song)
Vickie (my SIL) and brother, Den, called me. It's always so much fun to talk to Den and Vickie...gotta talk 'wood' with my brother! :) My seester, Flan, called and we spent the most delightful time talking about birds and trees and plants and Spring Fever!!! My seester, Nita, left a message on the answering machine (cuz I was out partyin' with my other seester, Sug ROFL), then Nita caught me today for a wonderful chat --- yup, about birds and trees and plants and such.....Oh it was all just so special!!!!
Now, I know without a doubt that I've left someone or something out, but not because it was any less special or appreciated---just because I'm really tired now and my pea brain is drawing blanks ROFL. I'm getting off of here, but I just had to share some of this. :D
BTW, the last photo is of a coyote that was in the field right behind my house. I actually took this photo from my kitchen window.
Edit: How could I forget to tell you what was in the black bag----one of the BEST and MOST IMPORTANT gifties of ALL-------SHEEP POOP (well, bedding, anyway ROFL) from my new friend, Flanie!!!! Lest you don't understand why one with red high heels would get excited about Sheep Poop...well it's for my flowerbeds, of course!!! *laughing hilarariously*
