Sorry about being MIA
I have been very busy with starting a new job and then we have also had a problem with one of our little dogs and this has taken up all of my extra time. She is a doxie and as such is prone to having back issues and last week she jumped off the couch and bulged a disc in her mid back. We were very blessed that it did not require emergency surgery at the time. The vet did inform us though it is not a matter of if she will need surgery for the protrusion, but when. The cost of this is in the range from $2,500.00 to $4,500.00, depending on the severity and location of the burst disc. I am just sick over the whole situation I have the money, but then I worry about her quality of life after surgery, due to the chance that she could be crippled even by the surgery or in chronic pain for the rest of her life. I just keep praying that this will resolve and we can have her healthy and happy again. Right now the little dear is asleep in her kennel and it will be her home for the next month.
We go back to the vet on the 24th of this month for a follow up and to discuss what to do next. So far everything is looking very good and she has not had anymore problems and does not seem to be in any pain, so we are at the wait and see stage. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. I know to some this would seem silly to be so concerned about the dog, but she has been with me through some really tough times and is a part of the family, she is like one of the kids.
I hope to get some card crafting done this week and post some new goodies and try to relax. I am so sorry for not replying to those of you who have left comments, but I hope things will become more relaxed so I can. Hugs to you all!!!
Thank you and Happy Crafting!!!
