Happy New Year!!!..and a few updates...

I'm wishing you all Health, Joy and Happiness!!...Not just alone for the New Year ..but for all times as well!!......................

Thank you all so much my Dear Friends!!... For visiting my humble blog....your comments, kind words and well wishes!!..They are all so Special to me and have helped make the year Wonderful!!

Our Little Buddy...had his surgery on Tuesday morning. He has come through the surgery well. The vet said the tumor came off quite cleanly. The cell mass has been sent in for analysis....so we won't know for awhile (I'm not sure how long) what it is made up of. I have been very busy watching over this little fella....as he should not be licking his incision or get it wet...and since it is on his front leg...it looks very tasty...lol. He gets the stitches out on Jan 8th. My blog posts in the meantime may be even more erratic than usual..lol. I So want to Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes!!.......I am a Strong Believer in the Power of Prayer!

I have one more update to mention....some of you may remember my brother Dana. Who was diagnosed with terminal cancer (3-9months remaining)...in July of 2007. Well since then he has been treated and is doing well!!.....He has a few more treatments in the beginning of Jan. but so far at the moment it looks like the cancer is at a standstill. Here again...I Thank you all for the prayers, well wishes and the Beautiful cards that were sent to him. They truly made him feel Blessed and Wonderful!!!

Now...I have received another Beautiful Christmas card.....this one is from Karin....a good friend from Holland!...The sleigh is full of sparkle and there is a Gorgeous Angel Charm hanging from the flowers...I love it...Thank you so much Karin!!

Well....that is it for now.......Take Care Everyone...and if your travelling.....Drive Safe!!! Hugs, Ila

Deborah said...

So good to read that Buddy came through well! Didn't the vet give you one of those cones for him to wear? You know so so they can't lick their stitches or whatever the issue is. I call Lobie a Cone Head when he has his on! He is an absessive licker, we couldn't manage without it when he gets an injury. Good luck with Buddy! New year hugs, Deb
