How is Maggie? And Bella?

Maggie is doing better. She still gets that honking cough once in a while, that has to do with the trachea. But she also had that hacking cough. It was especially bad during the night and I was worried it might have something to do with her heart. Thankfully she stopped doing that. Her doctor had her on antibiotic so I'm hoping whatever was causing it, is gone!
And Bella is doing alright. The doctor was concerned about the possibility of an infection developing from the surgery, but so far so good. I still get so angry when I think about what happened and I feel so bad for them. She use to be able to jump in to my Aunts lap but she can't even make it up a step now. My Aunt is taking very good care of her. She is still recovering and I'm praying that she will be herself again one day.
Thank you so much for asking!
XO

Spent all last weekend shopping for school stuff. NC had a tax free weekend on school supplies and clothes, so we went Fri,Sat and Sun. But we got everything.

Well gonna go try and catch up. Have a grand day
SIL has that and she lives with it just fine, only a few things she cannot eat.
Glad they figured it out quickly.

I am am at the hotel! The flight was delayed and a little bumpy lol. Everything at the airport is outrageously expensive! A teeny tiny bag of chips that normally costs 25 cents is almost $2.75 here! I am a little homesick lol. I have to admit home is my favorite place in the world. I miss my dad, brother, and grandpa. My mom and I really needed this vacation, though.

Tomorrow I cruise!

I hope you are all doing well! Thanks for your prayers

I drove down to where it happened to make sure everyone was alright and to take my daughter home.
wonderful that they are all OK!

Days to the Season: 95
Days to Christmas Day: 137

Barely over half a week remains until the 3/4 Season mark and the start of "full speed ahead".
I hope you're ready!

Even warmer and more humid yesterday. Feels definitely like summer has returned.
More of the same today I think, with rain more likely.

Have a Sensational Saturday, Everybody!


Note: I am having computer problems which is why I am posting late. Having to use someone else's computer.
Could be problems the next few days. Please bear with me -- and wish me luck!
hope it gets fixed quickly, we cannot be with out our count master!
