We were hoping you would post a blog note to let all Miss Dixie Monroe’s adoring friends know that she has had her final leg surgery and is home,
recovering under the ever watchful eyes of her wonderful Mommies. Thanks! Here’s her page– her diary has been updated today.

And for those of us who missed Miss Dixie Monroe’s surgery, here is her diary entry:

after all this time….from oct 26, 2006….finally home from the final leg surgery…whew! i will have a ton of check=ups and the pins and contraption holdin the bone pieces in place wont come out til late august..but mom says she can smell the end of the trail….she soooo silly sumtimes….all i smell is chicken cookin! teehee…
sweet dr p told mommy this was the worst one yet.. a new bone added and knee cap put back in front and straighten the tibia..(neat word, huh?) .he found a couple crushed toes too…so he had to repair them, so i wont have arthritis developin in them as i get older.. but he was very pleased with the way i perked back up after i woke up today! i ate and did my bizness (well, duh?) and was alert enough he wanted me to be home with my mommies. i think he has a whole lot of faith in the way they take care of me….he scratched my ears and said *you be good, my lil miracle*…aint he sweet???? (and still real cute , too!)

i slept for a bit when i got home and had some dinner and now yawnnnnn*, think i gonna nap again! mommy say i did a good job of pullin up my big girl panties and got the job done…aint she silly???

i got sooo many thank you’s to make…mommy will be swamped….but you all know how much we all care bout evry one of you! thanx for keepin the moms sane while i was gone.

i sure did miss you all and cant wait to get back to playin and teasin and sendin love and kissies from miss dixie monroe…diva extraordinaire…hehehe
