Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. John 15:4

Friends would you say a prayer for Mabel?

Hey everybody! I did not mention it before because we were busy preparing for Madeleine's Confirmation. Thursday night Mabel woke me twice whimpering. Very unusual,but I didn't understand in my grogginess. She held her head up funny on Friday. We took her to the vet on Saturday. X-rays show she has two slipped or herniated discs in her back! SHE IS 3 YEARS OLD! Our dear, sweet Mabel was given a steroid shot. She has been on oral steroids and pain pills, and will be for 10 days total. The vet says the inflammation should subside and she should return to normal activity. This problem could take years to flare up again. Or it could not resolve. She could eventually become paralyzed from this problem. Oh LORD please no!


She seems sad, but I know it is painful. She is lethargic, I know it is the pain pills making her laze about. Very unpuppylike. I think you may have noticed we love her very much!


She must not have free roam of the yard for these 10 days or jump or use steps. We are praying for her recovery. Would you also friends? We would truly appreciate it. Truly. We believe in the power of prayer so much. Yes, even for animals. Even for Mabel. God made her!

My new Bible verse at top is Madeleine's Confirmation verse. I helped her pick it out.

praying and stitching,
Vickie
