Today Bear is 7 years old!
5 years ago this little fellow was born and I am so blessed he is in my life- Happy Birthday Bear- your mama’s love you!
Bear had a tumor removed from between his eyes today. He has 3 stitches but it was benign and he is doing well (Thank you God)
Bear made it through his surgery- his tonsil’s were still 3 times the normal size. Here they are- YUCK! Vet said first time he ever photographed tonsils. Bear is recovering well.
Went to Target to get an optical audio cable (ours broke) and while I was waiting in the car with Bear for Linda- I heard birds- lots of birds- look in the tree- it’s covered inside with birds!
Prior to leaving for the River- Bear threw up blood again (4:30 a.m.). He has tonsillitis (3 times the size they should be). He is on an antibiotic and appears to be recovering well- he had a good time at the River.
While we were on our cruise, we took an excursion to Grand Cayman to swim with the Stingrays. This was the only thing my mom wanted to do on this trip, so we made sure to take her. She absolutely loved it, and so did we (although I was a bit timid). I finally uploaded these to FlickR for anyone that wants to see them. 🙂
Bear has slipped back a bit- bringing him back to the vet’s today to hopefully stay in front of this- prayers please- he is my ring bearer…

Her smile makes my day!
Met with the minister- working out the ceremony, picked the music (above is song after vows- there will be 3 songs sung and instrumental to walk in), got pedi/mani’s, Linda is tanning, Karen is not!, got new earrings, slimmed down the menu, ordered food, made announcement, so we are almost there…
“Face Of Love”
until tonight my heart was just half full i'd never known the fruit which fed the soul but now i see what may put to rest my longing for i have seen, the face of love the grace of god, the face of love in silence i feared my heart would remain words unheard inside a separateness of skin but now i know that the skin just veils the soul for i have seen, the face of love the grace of god, the face of love so take my hand and knowing with it i also give my heart wanting never to be separate again let eternity begin if you were flame i'd allow myself to be consumed completely were you wind i would wish you pass through me but now i know that the skin just veils the soul for i have seen, the face of love the grace of god, the face of love
Update: He is still receiving fluids at the vet (IV & subcutaneous) and still receiving a shot for nausea. Our vet was there today and did diagnosis him with pancreatitis. A big concern is many dogs who have this develop diabetes (are you kidding me?)
He did eat some last night and today, Jan sat with him today so he was not alone- still very lethargic but I think we are over the hump…again, thanks for all the prayers. He has 2 happy mommas tonight!
Was still dehydrated and had a drip and subcutaneous fluids, some new meds (antibiotics & a Cerenia Injection (stops nausuea). He will go back tomorrow to see how he is. Still very sick (“not out of the woods” per vet) but better than yesterday so keep those prayers coming…thanks for all the texts, calls and prayers- they mean a lot.
This little guy jumped into the front garden and ran around from side to side and back to front and then stuck his head up like-did you see me run? Then he went out and laid down in the grass to chill- until I went out to mow and then he hide in the flower garden out front. Made me smile!
