my sweet polka dot princess has a birthday today, yay,
am back in the hospital and have been for the past week, so she is hanging out with the newspaper gang. Mark is giving her a nice big bone and baking her a birthday cake, not really the cake, and singing her happy bark day…. with these doggies.
well, now i have three blood clots, apparently, they come back, and no breast cancer. have to wait for blood clots to be gone to get diagnosis about ovaries.
shall be leaving the hospital some time this week, they tell me. so far, on another floor, where i like it a lot more, they had three therapy dogs visit me, trevor, puff and roxie, and a harp lady played me some music. am still waiting for my massage and spa treatments. oh well.
the nurse who brought cici into the hospital last time was my nurse again and she got in trouble for cici and a lot of the nurses and aides up there are awesome (Suzette, Tina, Reggie, Sammy, Taylor) at Garden East at CHOMP. here in Terrace west, ugh, except for a couple today and last night, Miguel, Bobby and Julie.
and Dr. Davis is awesome, he looks like Col. Sanders, and i told him so, he laughed and laughed and gave me a hug. What a great doctor, plus he told me about his four rescue doggies.
Gotta love dog loving doctors, nurses and people of all kinds.
We have been selected as one of the best Pet blogs to follow by first site guide … see below.
It is always nice to be appreciated. Thanks !
Kait & John Seyal, along with their two dogs Max & Grace, walked across the US from DE to CA. They walked to promote pet therapy and animal rescue. Along the way, they stopped at hospitals, nursing homes, veteran facilities, children’s homes and anywhere else where a dog is needed. They relied on the kindness of strangers to get through this journey with giving them a place to stay, food, company, etc.

Happy April ! here’s a little April Fool’s Day doggie fun…
Sorry folks that I’ve not been here much but I was diagnosed with breast cancer a few weeks ago and just had surgery. Today, I find out the results of the surgery.
While I was getting surgery and recovering, Cici had fun playing with other doggies at a Bed and Biscuits place in Santa Cruz, thanks to Peace of Mind Dog Rescue.
She came back exhausted and slept, conked out and dreaming a lot. She has had two people walking her to help me. Kind people.
People have been amazing.
I thank each and every one of the folks who have stepped up to the plate for me and Cici.
Hopefully, we will have a New Home to move into very very soon.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
