Please say a prayer tonight....

.......for Katie. My cyber friend from Warsaw, MO. She has been diagnosed with stage one breast cancer and had lumpectomy surgery today. She's so sweet and caring. I've never met her in person, but I feel like we really know each other. One day I will go to Warsaw and meet her. Her friend Patti has a rug hooking shop on the square in town. It's only about 90 minutes from Springfield and I hear it is a wonderful shop. (Not like I need any more patterns or wool) but I love going to new hooking places. You can always find a piece of wool that you love the color of, but have no idea what you're going to do with it. Better buy it now though, it might come in handy. Anyway back to Katie, I'm sure she'll appreciate all the prayers from my readers. Hope you have a fast recovery my friend.

It snowed lightly here Sunday night and Monday. Just enough to get me excited!! I absolutely love the snow. I know it's weird. I don't even mind to shovel it!! I used to love to go to the mall parking lot at night and "do donuts" in my car. After the mall was closed of course.

I took Jimmie Dean back to the vet for his recheck. He put him on another antibiotic for another 14 days. He said the bronchitis is hard to get rid of in dogs. Who knew? This is Dr. Linn DVM. He is so kind I wish he could be MY doctor. He spent more time with me than any MD has ever spent. And happily answered all of my questions. After we left the vet I took him by the breeders and she gave him his third puppy shot and worming medicine. I felt so sorry for him that we went to Pet Warehouse for a new sweater for him! Also a couple of new toys. One for today and the rest for his Christmas stocking.

I told the ladies at the reception desk at the Vet office that I was scrapbooking him they said it was the first time anyone had photographed them for a doggie scrapbook!! I don't have any kids so he really is like my baby.

I do have grandkids though, my husband has four boys. Talk about good luck...I get grandkids to play with and send home and didn't have to raise any myself! Just kidding....I love kids and really wanted some-just didn't happen for me.

Here's the big boy posing in his new sweater. He actually liked it! I had been having him sleep on a heating pad on his bed. They told me to do that till he's 2.5 pounds or six months. He weighed 2.2 pounds yesterday.

Good night and please don't forget to pray for our hooking friend Katie.

Bless your heart Sheri, you are so kind to do that.
This morning I do feel better. Ran a little temp through the night, but not high enough to call the Dr. This morning I go back to the Dr, Now on to the good stuff.
Jimmy Dean is the cutest little thing, I love his sweater. Is he sleeping on any of your wool yet. Max the shop dog has a special chair with wool in it he sleeps in.
Thank you again for prayers and your friendship.We will meet someday.

Within the past few days I found Katie's blog and read her story. I will send prayers in her direction. She seems like a tough lady with a lot of courage!

Jimmie Dean is adorable...just a pocketful of pup! When are you going to hook him his very own rug to sleep on? He's too cute, thanks for sharing!

Sheri - will be sending good thoughts for your friend - every year I do the breast cancer walk in Philly (couldn't this year because of my foot) and recently found out (i'm adopted) that breast cancer is prevalent in my natural family and their are "survivors", so now when I "walk for the cure" i have names to add to the list.

Jimmie Dean is just adorable - I'm sure this round of antibiodics will do the trick - we went thru the same thing when I got Riley - two rounds and I thought his little runny nose and sneezies would never go away - poor guy! Love the sweater!

Sheri, I would be more than happy to add Katie to my prayer list. I just found out last week that my internist, whom I love dearly, was just diagnosed with stage 2-3 breast cancer. Very selfishly, I want her to be okay because I don't want to have to find another doctor. She does, however, have the benefit of knowledge and excellent medical care so I'm praying hard for her also.

Jimmy Dean just makes my heart melt every time I see him. How adorable he is.

The ornament came yesterday and it's much cuter in person than the picture on your blog shows it to be. And the soap? Adorable. I never realized that Dial soap smells so good. My entire mailbox smelled good when I went down to get the mail.

Thank you again.
