Thanks for all your good wishes and POTP

Cookie's mum here:

I just got a call from Cookie's vet -- Cookie definitely has Valley Fever in the bone -- which is better than a tumor, but very expensive.

Could someone please help to to set up a Go Fund Me to help me cover the costs for the medication and vet bills.  I would really appreciate any help I can get.

My e-mail is

Thanks all from me and Cookie.

Still on the Sick List

Just a quickie post to say that mum and I really appreciate all your good wishes and POTP.  It really makes us feel good to know that so many of the residents of Blogville are thinking of us.

I will try to get mum to take a selfie -- her eyes are a bit better now, but she still has two black eyes!!!

My leg is a bit better.  I am giving mum a really hard time about taking the Tramadol -- I like the Rimadyl tho!!!!

I will try to post again tomorrow.

Again thanks so much for all your well wishes and POTP

Mum and Me are both on Sick List

I am on medication that is making me sleepy so I will let mum tell you about it.

Cookie's Mum here:

I had surgery on my eyelids yesterday.  It is a residual from the eye injury I had back in December 2013.  It is not very painful -- just uncomfortable.  I could not close my eyes properly last night, but now I am able to!!  But I have two black eyes, and it looks horrible!!

Anyway, Cookie has been limping a bit from time to time, but yesterday she was limping more and this morning could barely put her paw down.  I took her to the vet, and $550 later, we STILL are not sure what is wrong.  The vet took x-rays and said it is her left shoulder, and she is not sure if it is valley fever (which is very prevalent here in Arizona) or a tumor.  She took a blood sample and gave Cookie Rymadil and Tramidol!! Cookie's prescriptions cost more than the ones I had to get this morning.  If I had had a car, I would have gone to my pharmacy, but it was too far for Cookie to walk.  The vet is just around the corner.  *sigh* now I have MORE expenses!!!

I will keep you posted, but please POTP for her.

I sat mum down this morning and gave her a talking to because she had not been keeping up with posting on my blog.  This is the result!!!!

Mum has been reading (and occasionally commenting) her favorite blogs, but even that has been a bit sporadic.  She has been looking a little down in the mouth, and when I try to find out what is wrong, she cannot tell me.  I think part of it is she is really getting worried about finding a lawyer.  If she does not get things going by the beginning of December, the statute of limitations will be over.  A lot of the lawyers she has spoken to have given that as a reason for not taking on the case -- not enuf time to really prepare!!!!  She is also having surgery to correct her droopy eyelid on Thursday and although that is not major, it is not gonna be fun.  She went last week for her post-op surgery and the nurse practitioner told her that it was healing very well (at least one thing seems to be going right).  She has to have a CT scan on Wednesday because of the possibility of her lapband having migrated!!

Aside from all that ..........  We are still waiting of my training to start.  Hopefully, now that the weather is cooling off a little, we will get started soon.
Even though this picture was taken a couple of weeks ago -- Krista is still getting almost as big piles of my floof when she brushes me!!!  I think I have told you how much I luvs Krista -- I always give her lots of kisses.  she also has a very cute 5 year old daughter --I luvs her too.  When she comes over next time, I will bug mum to take Kathrines picture!!!
Well, I don't wanna bore you any more.  Hopefully some more exciting stuff will start happening soon and mum will feel more up to taking pics.
Take care all

This was me when we got home from our loooong trip  a week ago!!  As you can see, I just about made it into the apartment before zonking out.

I had a long talk with Mum on our way out this morning!!  Among other things, I told her that she needs to spread out her doctor's appointments so that she does not have so many in one week!!!  She explained that this is not always possible, but she will try.  I also told her that I wanted to go more places with her.  She has often said that I am so well behaved on the van and in stores.  However, she says that certain appointments (i.e., mri's, xrays, etc) it does not work out well for me to go with he.  ***Big sigh***

Besides running around to all these doctors, mum has been trying to find a good product liability lawyer.  She THOUGHT she had one, but a few weeks ago he told her he could not represent her (the reason he gave had absolutely nothing to do with the lawsuit!).  Anyway, part of the problem is that the statute of limitations is up the beginning of December, and several of the attorneys mum has spoken to have told her there is not enuf time.  If she does not find one soon, she is going to have to make the initial filings pro se until she can find a lawyer!!!  She has been under so much stress because of this .........

Hmmmm--thought mum had forgotten about this!!!!  This Is my hiding place when it storms!!!  I am going to have to hid her camera at embarrassing times like this.

Well, I hope I will have some better pic and things to talk about in a couple of days.

Mum here:

Cookie was busy telling me to do a post today about her hike yesterday, when it started to thunder and lightning and so, of course, she had to go and hide in the bathtub!!!!  She asked me to do the post instead -- oh, the things I do for that pup --lol.

Anyway, I had to pick up a letter from the post office.  For some reason the mailman will not bring certified letters to our apartment.  Instead, he leaves a notice in the mailbox and because the recipient has to be present to sign for it, I had to go to the post office.  I decided we would go to Udall Park first.  Because it was later than we usually go, none of her buddies were there -- but she had fun with all the new buddies she made.  (Udall Park is about 1 mile from home and the PO is about 2 miles beyond that -- I was in my chair and she was walking beside me)..We got to the post office before they opened, so had to wait a while (of course Cookie lay down while we were waiting).  We then went to Target cos I needed to get a couple of things and it was right around the corner.  While we were there, I realized that Cookie had not eaten yet (it was about 9 by this time) so I got her one of her favorites -- the Beneful in the plastic container, and while we were waiting for the van home, she ate it.  She was VERY glad I had arranged to go home by van, but because she  had not been with me on the van for a while, I totally forgot her extra leash and so had to take off theone attached to the chair.  It had been there since last December, and I had a heck of a time with it.  Fortunately a lady came over and helped out by holding on to Cookie while I got it off!!  We finally got home (we had been out almost 4 hours) and we were BOTH EXHAUSTED.  It was the first time I had been out since Wednesday and I was really glad that the incision was not hurting (for about the first time).  I had intended to go to Udall this morning plus the grocery store, but I was still exhausted from yesterday and I have doctor's appointments every day for the rest of the week.

When the storms are over, I am sure Cookie will be very apologetic about not posting today, and will be back later in the week.  Probably not till the weekend because of my schedule and, as you all know you puppers and kittiehs need our help to post.

So, ttfn and toodle pip

Let's see if SHE can post a pic of me!!

Yaaaaay -- good pic of me and my kitty sistah Tigger!!

Let's see if we can get one of both the kitty's

You can't really see their faces, but take it from me, it IS Tigger and Sixpence

Mum forgot all about Taco Day -- I can't blame her because of the pain she has had since Thursday morning.  She says she has to go to post office tomorrow and will TRY to stop at the taco shop nearby.  A lot depends on her wheelchair charging!!!

See ya soon

Just a quickie post to thanks you all on mum's behalf.  She is starting to feel better and is able to sit up more (with a pillow behind her back!).  And I am able to snoopervise more now that I have recovered.  Mum was worried cos I didn't eat much yesterday, but I reminded her that I had soooo much to eat at the dance that I was still full.

Well, Uncle Vic (and maybe Coco) are SUPPOSED to visit mum today --- hmmmmmmm

Gotta straighten up some

Mum is doing better

Mum says thanks for all the well wishes after her (not so minor, after all) surgery on Tuesday.  She was feeling pretty good yesterday and so went to her hand doctor, etc.  She has been really paying for it today and has been in bed resting.  I felt really sorry for her when she had to take me out because the area of the incision is right where her back meets the wheelchair!!!!  But she is such a trooper that she made sure I got a good run and then made sure Krysta took me out when she got here.

As you will see when you read Sarge's blog, mum also insisted that I go to the Sadie Hawkin's dance with Sarge.  She made sure my gown was ready and that I made it on time.  Thanks again mum, and I really thank Sarge's mum for making sure our picshurs go on the blog.

Sarge and I danced so much that I also have sore paws so I am gonna go take a rest now so I can take care of mum later.

Again, mum says thanks for all your well wishes
