I've been thinking of y'all alot but seem to be a bit gloomy since Christmas & I didn't want to spread it so I just stayed away.

anything new I need to know? so what's going on w/ everyone? c'mon tell me, tell me, tell me!
Nice to see you.

It is almost like a reset button for your mind after you post. I always enjoy reading your blog.

Sigh...I thought I was going to make it for Valerie tonight on QVC but I am so sleepy I can hardly keep my eyes open now and tomorrow begins at 5 a.m. Made, you will have to tell us all about it !!

Wish is still holding his own. I know I am repeating myself, so please forgive me. His BUN this time was 130. Normal is 30. Creatinine was 2.4 and normal is around 1.86 and the vet says this is not bad. If his BUN would just go down. The doctor estimates that he only has about 20% kidney function left. The fluids every day are part of what is sustaining him. But you know what ?? He DOES NOT act sick in the least !!

The doctor puzzled over this when he told me the results. He couldnt figure out why Wish seems to feel so good. I think I know. it is because of G-0-D !! At least that is what I think. The doctor also said it is likely that Wish has less than six months to live. He is quite happy right now, eats like a horse and is not sick. If he has more I cannot express how grateful I would be and if he does not it will hurt but at least I did something good, I helped him feel better and stuck by him and loved him with all my heart. But we will see. Whenever there is a weather forecast I don't like I always tell God, "They can predict the weather all they want but it is YOU who controls it" I tell God that same thing about Wish. Doctors can predict all they want but ultimately it is not up to doctors....

Work has been hard this week, just because I seem to be so tired by the time the second part of my day starts. I try to do 1200 lines a day but usually by the time I have 900 I am whipped. Those last 300 are killer. Today in fact I did not get 1200 nor yesterday. I hope tomorrow and Friday I do plus the days next week.

Praying that all have a safe, Christmassy evening and dream of everything magical and Christmassy !!

((((HUGS))) to all ESPECIALLY:


Ella, Harlowe, Snowball, Gomez, Ophelia, Sidney, Alex, Merlin, Snickers, Victor, Daisy, Diva, Mickey, Palmer, Mouse, Bo, Chico, Meca, Alvin, Charlie, Gary, Bailey, Jerrold, Irving, Martha, Uncle Julio, Missy, Scooby, Sasha, Jacob, Cracker, Bunny B, Penny, Pocket, LuLu, Bear-Bear, Stripey, Holly, Fate Puppy (London,) Buster, Missy, Baby, Santa's Polar Bears, Sangria, O'Malley, Beau, Taz, Zema, Rizzo, Bella, Happy, Sam, Guinness, Holly Noel, Larry SR, Mama, and all furkids everywhere xoxoo



Hope you are sleeping peacefully & in Christmas dreamland!!

Praying for you & sweet Wishbone. Xo

Good evening,

I am done, so tired tonight. I ruined a pair of pants while I was working with some heavy duty cleaner at work, and got some on my skin and wow did it burn. I should probably head to the land of nod. The alarm will be going off way too soon.


Good night Christmas lights!
