Just a Quickie

Mum is gonna be picked up soon for a doctor's appointment, but I insisted she write a quickie!!***

First, Mum and I want to thank everyone who has donated to our GoFundMe.  She also wants me to explain why she put such a high amount -- my vet has told her that it is going to take a couple of years (probably) for me to completely get over this Valley Fever!!!!  My meds are around $100 per month; and visits to the dogtor every three to 6 months!!!  The vet charges about $60 just to walk in!!!  That does not include any x-rays and tests!!!  Hopefully, it wont cost that much (or take that long).  If that is the case -- we will let you know!!  Mum took me out the other day to the grocery score.  I did pretty well, but when I was almost home, I started limping a little, so mum is hesitant about taking me out for long walks!!!!  Uncle Vic wanted us to come over, but mum said it was too far for me!!!  I hope I am able to walk more soon.  Mum wants me to go to the bigger dog park so that I can (as she says) become "less dog aggressive"!!  There are not usually many puppers at out park here -- although this morning I did get to play with a really cute 6 month old pit bull mix pupper!!  Mum has often said that  because I am a big girl (almost 70 lbs) people with smaller pups are nervous around me, which in turn makes the pupper nervous!!

Things are starting to turn around for mum!!!  She had the stitches out of her eyelids last week, and it is much more comfortable, and the bruising has just about gone.  She also had a very satisfying appointment with an attorney who (she hopes) is taking her case!

***Grrrr- the paratransit company screwed up -- they left me a message that I could not understand; could not understand the message; and the number on the screen was busy.  Consequently, she has missed her appointment!!!

Well, I'm gonna go and let mum relax a little!!  Will catch you all again soon.
