Thank you so much for all the power of the paw, rosies, healing messages, support and love. All of you are pawsome.

We don't know for absolutely positively sure, the tumor is growing back...but does appear to be. My vet is out of town for several days; however, there is a squishy lump which feels encapsulated right next to my surgery site. It appears to be about 2x2 right now. It feels just like the other one.

The other tumor grew so big before...(of course, we were all unaware and shocked when the vet did surgery) this feels like the other one on a much smaller scale. The vet said the tumor was so large (the size of a human head) he had to remove in pieces and did the very best he could; however, there was always a slight risk, it could return. Our whole family has been using this vet for about 25 years and we truly trust him.

Mommy is definitely good at knowing what is going on with me....when she felt it for the first time, she told herself it was scar tissue.....but, it does not appear that way. Last night Granny and Papa checked it too....and frowned......

Just keep those good thoughts coming and I will probably get checked on Tuesday when the vet returns.

Thanks again. Our hearts are connected by paws!!

Love, Sissy

 

A little extra power of the paw please!!!

Hello precious friends

Your support and constant healing purrs, woofs and power of the paw have helped so many, including me.....I would like to ask for some extra healimg thoughts, if I may (without sounding greedy)!!! We don't need rosies and gifts, just your thoughts.....

I am doing so well since my surgery............thanks to all of you; however, it appears the tumor is more than likely growing back. Mommy is so sad............

We also have lots going on in our lives and could us some healing energy!!

Thanks for always being there for us.....your presence makes our hearts complete!

Hello precious friends!!

I am soooooooooooo much better and is from all the love, power of the paw and great care! I can walk without limping *unless my hips hurt) and I do the happy-happy doggie dance!!!

I did have a little set back, though.....phew!!! This sill cough and infection. Mommy took me to the vet yesterday and he put me back on antibiotics, steroids and cough medicine for two weeks. He got that funny look on his face............and said, I look so good, but he really wants to get all this cleared up. Of course we will. I am strong!! Please just keep those great positive and healing thoughts coming my way. Your strength and hearts are so amazing and we appreciate you all!!! As I keep telling you....I am one lucky gal!

Mommy got her injections and is feeling sore, to say the least! The Memory walk is this Saturday. Cheer mommy on as she walks the three miles to raise awareness for those with Memory Loss! Go mommy go! Many friends and family will be there with her! We thank those of you who have helped spread awareness, supported us with the walk, etc.

Guess what.....I have a precious handsome doggie boy after my heart. His name is Boss and he is so kind.

Here is something to think about when life gives you obstacles...we all have courage and strength inside us and when you need some extra, we are here!

"One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest."

Hello everyone!

Wanted to let you know I have had a little set back...nothing major, we hope. I am resting comfortably and we will keep you updated.

My mommy will be getting injections tomorrow so we may not have as much pc time with her recovery and work.

Know you are in our hearts always. We are thankful for each of you!

The art of living does not consist in preserving and clinging to a particular mode of happiness, but in allowing happiness to change its form without being disappointed by the change; happiness, like a child, must be allowed to grow up. "

We are home....

Dear Friends,

We are home safely from our cabin trip. It was so nice to have the time away to rest, relax and be together. We missed each of you, but you never left our hearts. After all, our hearts are always connected by paws!

For the most part, it was cloudy and rainy the first 4 days at the cabin….We know our precious Jazzi Sunshine Angel was working over time to let us know she was there. Often we caught a beautiful glimpse of the sun hidden behind the clouds………….we felt her presence at all times. You will see the pictures on my page. The last night there, Jazzi blessed us with the most incredible sunset (picture on her page)…as if she was saying...I am at peace. I live within all of you.

We have never traveled with CK before. He did very well and had a fun time. My Granny and Papa came and spent a couple of days with us, too. ti was such a great family time.

Mommy rested some and is still recovering from the flu. I rested as well. Got lots of frosty paws and pampering!

We rescued one dog and kitty while there. The animals seem to find mommy everywhere. They are in new loving homes in Oklahoma.

Our trip was much different than anticipated…the second day there, mommy received a phone call from one of her dearest friends. Mommy didn’t think too much when the call came in as they talk a lot. However, her friend was calling to let her know that her husband died. Mommy and dad were so shocked and saddened. Mommy’s friends’ husband had cancer, just like my daddy’s…..as a matter of fact, my daddy was his cancer buddy and huge supporter…..hit daddy really hard. I think Daddy was his hero, as I know he is ours.

Our precious friend’s death definitely changed the tone of the trip……….really put things in perspective. I caught mommy holding daddy tightly and saying, “thank God you are a live.” So, as all of you can imagine, the trip was different than expected. Our hearts are still heavy and with each minute of each day, we count our blessings…no matter how tough life can be. Mommy always says, we can’t change life, but we can continue to live life to the fullest and keep our hearts and minds appreciative and giving.

After much thought and really missing the sunshine, we realized why it was so cloudy and rainy, as our Jazzi Angel was working so hard to help our precious friend to heaven…………………once he arrived peacefully, she could light up our world with sunshine and healing love. She was right where she needed to be.

One more thing….to all those of you with cancer or who know someone with cancer….never give up hope and remember….

“WHAT CANCER CAN NOT DO
Cancer is so limited
It cannot cripple love
It cannot shatter hope
It cannot corral faith
It cannot eat away peace
It cannot kill friendship
It cannot shut out memories
It cannot silence courage

It cannot invade the soul
It cannot reduce eternal life
It cannot quench the spirit”

Hello special friends,

Hope sunshine is filling your hearts with much happiness and peace....for each of you deserves it!

I decided to update Sissy's diary today, as I am not sure she tells you how wonderful she truly is....she is actually pretty modest and does not always recognize her own strength, tenacity and courage....she is the best golden sister ever! She has amazed me during this whole surgery ordeal.....she never complains...she simply just accepts and moves forward. Pawsome attitude. Of course, knowing her, I would expect nothing less! Mommy says she gets that from me....hum.............can kitties pass attitudes to doggies??? I believe so, as I belive we can all pass happiness and strength to others...isn't that what the power of the paw is all about?!

Wanted to thank you again for all the power of the paw for my sister, Sissy. She is FINALLY doing better, thanks to all of you. Wow, what an ordeal....we are moving forward!!! I have to tell you something cute! Sissy has not jumped on anything for a looooooooooooooooooong time! Yesterday at Granny and Papa's (as I was watching over her), she did the happy-happy doggie dance and jumped on the couch! We laughed!! Now, granted, she is still limping and has to be careful....but that awful tumor was really causing problems for her. Of course she will continue with hip dysplasia and arthritis, but you have to appreciate the small stuff....and this warmed our hearts! Thanks again!

Also wanted you to know we are headed to the cabin for some R & R!!! We will be leaving on Sunday, the 11th (mom and dad's anniversary) and returning on the 18th! It couldn't be a better time because Sissy is improving and mommy is now sick. The peace of the country, hot tub and watching the sunrise in the mornings will help her get well. It will bring healing energy to their minds, bodies and spirits.

Please know there is no -fi there and we won't be in contact!!! However, the best part of being an angel is… I will always be with you all no matter what. Remember, our hearts are connected by paws. If you miss me or wonder where I am….look to the sun, even if there are clouds, I am there…or put your paw over your heart, I am there.

I know mommy and daddy will find this trip bittersweet...as last year, it was our best time together before the sun lifted me to the bridge. Lots of good memories..............lots of sad memories followed.

Well, just wanted to update you on Sissy and let you know how much we appreciate and love you all. You are pawsome!

A couple of thoughts for the day!

"Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine."

~Anthony J. D'Angelo, The College Blue Book

"Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”

~Rabindranath Tagore

Power of the paw and take care of you!!! ON behalf of my amazing golden sis, I thank you!

I got my stitches out today!

Hey sprecial friends,

Just a quick update! I got my stitches out today. Boy, it sure does feel good to have them out. I am post-op 19 days. I am really licking and mommy says, I may have to keep wearing PaPa's t-shirt. I also lost 4.5 pounds. No surprise with as big as that silly tumor was!

The vet says I have lots of internal healing to do, which will take time, but is amazed at how well I am doing. Of course, we told him....it is the power of the paw!!

He says, he will NEVER do surgery on me again. He said this was stressful on all of us, including him. He said he was very concerned several times...wondering if I would bounce back....and today he is so thrilled...as we all are.

I am one tough gal.....and I thank each of you for sending extra strength as I needed it....all of you are helping me heal and be strong!

Thank you for reaching out and supporting my family during this difficult time as well.

Our hearts are connected by paws.

Golden hugs of love and appreciation, Sissy

 

Two week post-surgery update...

Hello precious friends,

Sorry it has been a few days since updating you on how I am doing. Mommy has been swamped with so many things and has had much pc time.

Many of you have pmailed or emailed mommy via regular email to check on me and we sure do appreciate your care and concern. As all of you know, the power of the paw is amazing.

Good news is.........I am improving!!! The pneumonia is better and I am walking a little better. I am definitely feeling better as my appetite is back, I did the little roll on my back--happy, happy doggie dance...mommy had to stop me as I still have to not move much! I saw her smiling as she was thrilled to see it!!! I am still am in pain with those muscles which were cut and they will take time to heal. I limp on my front leg a lot. I get good pain meds and they help.

I get my stitches out on Tuesday....19 days post op. They had to stay in longer as I was draining and filling up with fluid so much. I will, hopefully, get drained for the last time, Tuesday.

Wow! What an ordeal and I just keep on smiling!!! I know mommy and daddy are pooped. Mommy's new job may be more than she can handle.............we will see. She is working so hard and wants you to know we won’t' be on line much right now....

Once again, thank you to each and every one of you. We could not have made it through this difficult time with your support, friendship, encouragement and continued power of the paw. It makes such a difference in our lives and fills our hearts with sunshine!

We appreciate you all. Keep that POP coming and we will update you soon.

A special little thought for the day (hope it stays with you longer):

"May there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us."

Remember OUR HEARTS ARE CONNECTED BY PAWS....ALWAYS.
