It's been a long time since I did a Diary entry, but things have been crazy around here!
My human sister is having serious health issues, her white blood cell count is off the chart. The specialists think she has some kind of fast growing cancer but don't know where in her body. It could also be a bad infection somewhere in her, but the doctors lean more towards it being cancer. She found this out because before Mother's Day she fell down the stairs and broke several bones in her hand and wrist and put a 12" fracture down the front of her leg. This is bad, she's a single Mom with 4 kids and she cuts hair for a living. Mom & Dad have been having lots of sleepless nights worrying about her. She went on I.V. antibiotics which made her very sick & tired. She had the last one last Tuesday, and we're praying that this has killed any infection in her body and the whole cancer scare goes away!
Mom tore a tendon in her right foot and then had 4 of the grand kids come for 4 days. The 2 year old granddaughter fell and mom tried to get to her before she hit but tripped on something and went flying into a table and broke her right toe and did damage to the soft tissue, so now she has a brace on one foot and a medical shoe on her right foot...which makes her walk like a penguin!
Everyone here has had way too much stress for the last 6 months! Mom wants to head to the ocean for a day or two after school starts...less people on the beach! She says the ocean breeze clears her mind and I love it there!
The folks on Dogster have been a blessing during all of this and we are very grateful for their kindness and prayers. Mom hasn't been doing anything on any of her sites for weeks now but will be back doing her games on September 3rd. I have a short hair cut for the hot weather so I've been just chillin with Mom and Dad. They are still working on the siding but it will not get done this summer, too much has happened that took them away from working on it, but Mom will have all the painting done for Dad to put up next summer. We have such wet weather here that we can't do outside work like the siding and the roofing, but it's getin there.
Well Mom needs to go put her throbbing feet up and sip some ice tea, so I gotta go. Mom says I keep her sane...the juries still out on the sane theory!
See you all in September!
