Hello dear friends do we have some news for you.....I'll start with yesterday....I received a call from Audrey Taylor who identified herself as an ABC National News Producer.....Hmmmm I thought at last I have been discovered...lol...Anyway she explained they were doing a story on pet healthcare as it relates to human healthcare...available treatments, specialties, drugs and costs.....apparently she was given our name by VCA Critical Care and Dr. Stoneham Norma Jean's savior and hero....Audrey asked several questions one thing led to another and next thing you know we decided to do an interview at Norma Jean's Cardiology appointment today with Dr. Terrell.
They started taping as soon as we got out of the car....Norma Jean, Lucy, Abigail, Teddy, me and my sister Shari....A bit overwhelming but we got hold of ourselves and just went with it. When we got inside they put a microphone on me and filmed everything as we checked in then sat and waited to see Dr. Terrell...while waiting I was asked a slew of questions about Norma and the babes, they were very interested in Norma's story and I was happy to share it as I just love sharing my lil babes with folks.....
We were called into Dr Terrell's exam room and the filming continued throughout the exam, EKG and Sonogram....many questions were asked then finally Dr. Terrell was ready to tell me what he found and how lil Norma Jean was looking.....No pleural effusion fluid was present, the tumor size is unchanged, the tumor is no longer compressing the main pulmonary artery, the tumor appears to be arising from the aortic body, chemodectoma tumor is now ruled out!!!! Woohoo!!!!....this is fantastic, fabulous absolutely the BEST news possible...in English...the tumor is no longer blocking the main valve that takes blood from the heart to the lungs...the blood is flowing smooth and normal.....it is ruled out that the tumor is malignant PTL you know I am crying tears of joy hearing this report....and finally there does not appear to be any fluid needing aspiration at this time...A total home run!!!!! And mind you the film crew is filming I am sure that as Dr. Terrell got deeper into his report I totally forgot about the interview and all I could think of was this is possible because of the power of prayer, my amazing circle of dear friends and their continued support and the very talented caring doctors Norma Jean was so blessed to have care for her.
After the great news from Dr. Terrell the crew followed us out to check out and asked more questions...then followed us to the car and filmed us loading up and driving off....
It was an experience....Shari told them from the beginning not to film her....stage fright..lol....she told me that I did good....I wasn't nervous I think because it was all about my babes and as long as I can talk about and share them I am on cloud nine. The interview will be airing next Tuesday or the following week Audrey will let me know when it's scheduled....she is also going to give me a tape of the interview I'm going to make copies and Norma Jean will be pawtographing them for her furends and fans....lol....
I've said it before and can't say it enough thank you all from the bottom of my heart for you kindness, love, prayers and support...I love you all....God Bless you dear friends.....

I am so very happy to share the latest report from Dr. Stoneham about my Lil Norma Jean. Aside from the fact that Dr. Stoneham call Norma Jean her little "Star" she says she looks wonderful!!! And I indeed have to agree she is back to her regular routine, eating great, a spring in her paws a happy smile and just all around sweet Lil Norma Jean....only difference is now she does not let me out of her sight and of course she now goes everywhere with me and Miss Lucy.....Back to the latest check-up....the sonogram showed NO fluid needing to be aspirated!!! Can you believe it???....this is fantastic news....Norma has a re-check with Dr. Terrell her Cardiologist on Wednesday....I just know he is going to be absolutely amazed to not only see Norma Jean but to see her looking so fabulous!!!...Dr. Terrell will check for fluid as well as check the tumor for changes which in turn will contribute to the recommended course we should take if any regarding the tumor....If there is fluid we will see Dr. Stoneham later in the day for aspiration...if no fluid then we will see Dr. Stoneham the fallowing week....Oh my gosh it's been 1 week and 1 day since fluid was aspirated...that is just awesome news....please keep the good thoughts and prayers coming.....
Norma Jean got a nice trim to even up her "ICU" hairstyle....I think she really enjoyed being pampered....she looks so adorable...I left her hair long just blended it a bit where she was shaved the hair is coming on very fast...I just think she looks so cute and has earned her battle scars for sure......I'll get some new pics up soon....
Once again here is Norma Jean's candle site it would mean so very much to me if you my dear friends would help keep it going......
