Good Morning my friends! So glad you came to visit. I have some new friends too. That is wonderful! Thank you for leaving me such nice comments. You make my day! =) In case you missed it, I am having a One Year Blogoversary Giveaway.
I am STILL stitching this little bargello. Well, yes, I did just get sidetracked with another small freebie that I am making up into a magnet for my husband today. (And NO, it isn't a poodle for him!!)
So, it has been a crummy week. A few days ago we thought we were taking Mabel in to the vet to be euthanized. Really. We were all a mess. She could barely move from the pain. We figured she was very close to being paralyzed. We have been told that can happen at any time really. The vet took another x-ray, since she had not had one since this slipped disc junk began last May. She has 2 slipped discs at L4 and L5. She also has one in her neck now. =(
I am happy to tell you she was put on gabapentin. She can be on this for life if necessary. This treats the nerve pain. It is actually an anti-seizure medicine. I was on this same drug myself for years. I am still on anti-seizure meds also, just a different variety now. We two girls are in the same boat, Mabel and I. We are both in chronic pain and take pills to numb it. Yuck! Such depressing talk.
Here. Take a look at the beautiful bouquet Brian bought to cheer us up.
Maggee sent me an RAK. What fabulous timing. You are so kind and sweet. Thank you my friend, such a surprise! =)
Here is one last picture of Mabel. I took it a few days ago. She is almost herself again, ALMOST. She is so precious. We are glad and thankful for every day with her.♥ She is smiling here. =)
