March 15, 2012

Today is Tootsie's birthday, and she is nine years old.  There aren't enough words to describe the joy and happiness that this little girl has given me all these years.  This morning we had to go see her doctor because her left eye is just not looking so good. 

The news was not what we were hoping for.  We were hoping Tootsie would be put on antibiotics for a while and the eye would be okay.  Unfortunately, that's not the news we received.  There is a mass behind her eye and it is stressing the eye and pushing it out of the socket. 

To do the required tests and possibly surgery would be very stressful, painful and of no help to my little girl.  She's been through a lot, and things are slowly shutting down.  It's basically a matter of time.  We wait, we watch, and we enjoy every moment we have. 

Tonight we are having roast chicken for supper.  This is Tootsie's very favorite food.  But first, we will be leaving shortly to go raise some hell at the cable company's office. 

Here is a photo of my little girl getting a bit of fresh air out in the yard, and next is my very favorite photo of her taken a few years ago.  She is one very special beautiful little kid.

Now we're off to enjoy our day together.  Folks, if you have a pet give it an extra love today.  Your pet is truly a gift.   Have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Happy birthday, Tootsie! Carla and Kaline send their birthday wishes too. They’d share a treat if they knew what “share” meant! :)

Edna, I’m so sad to hear that the news about your girl’s eye was not good news. I remember last June when we went in expecting a quick fix and got news we didn’t want to hear. Love her and give her lots of chicken!

BIG hugs, Nani

Happy birthday lovely Tootsie!!!

Oh, Edna, this is sad news about Tootsie, we just can hope that she will not have too much pain and discomfort of her eye.
Don't know what to say more, my heart aches with you.
Just enjoy all moments you still can have with her, I know you will and I know you love her dearly.
Give her a sweet hug from me!

I am so sorry to hear about Tootsie. Baxter (aka She Devil) is missing out on a lot of attention during this preparation for the moving sale and having to show the house all the time. I promised her today that after the weekend was over things would slow down and we'd be giving her the attention she deserves. I hope she continues to stay healthy until we get the motorhome so she can enjoy the beginning of our new life with us.
