A Thank You For Our Vet

Good Morning Blogger Friends! I hope you are having a great weekend! I know that I don't usually post on the weekends but I wanted to share a card with you and explain why I haven't visited my favorite blogs much this week. Many of you know we rescued a very sweet Maltese from a puppy mill environment some 7 or 8 years ago. She came to us with a lot of health issues and required a lot of medical attention. For the past 7 or 8 years we have battled chronic ear infections. Last December the ear was no longer treatable with medication and surgery was our only option. After they had prepped her, they were not able to do the surgery because they were not able to intubate her...not even with the smallest breathing tube. She was given yet another steroid shot and antibiotics and sent us on our way with the promise that the vet would cosult with his fellow animal surgeons for a solution to this problem. To make a long story short (too late for that...lol) a specialist was called in and she had the surgery this past week. They removed her ear from the ear drum out and will require extensive care for at least the 3-4 weeks. We took pictures of her but I'll spare you...gross is an understatement! Anyway, here is the card I made for Drs. Kirven, Van Lue and the Staff at Hunter's Creek Animal Hospital who not only provided her with the best possible care but the level of care and concern for us as well---
The card didn't photograph well, perhaps I'll take it outside once the sun comes up but more than likely not. I will do my best to catch up with my favorite blogs this weekend but things are kind of hit and miss at this point...as will be my postings. This is worse than having a newborn baby in the house...precious little time for anything. The best part is, after the healing...we won't have to deal with another ear infection again! With that being said...Thanks for stopping by...enjoy your weekend! If you have a question on the recipe or supplies that I have used in my posting today, please feel free to email me. I'll see you when I see you!

Awww...such a sweet and adorable card, Kelly! What a thoughtful way to say "thank you" to Charlee's vets...I just know that they were amazed with your card and will have it up for everyone to enjoy. Hope Charlee is recovering well from her major surgery...poor baby! It's so hard to see our furbabies suffer and seem so helpless, but I'm sure Charlee knows that she is under the best & most loving care. Please give her a hug from Latte and me!
