IT’S BEEN A WEEKEND OF MIRACLES!
1. Betty Boop, our sick fourteen year old puppy, went into fatal cardiac arrest on Wednesday & the vet suggested that we put her down. I came home for that dreadful appointment but then, all of a sudden, she started to get better! She played and kissed all weekend, so we decided to cancel the appointment. She will go on her own time, not when it’s convenient for me to be in the city.
2. My moms friend Joan had practically a zero percent chance of surviving last month. Even a week ago, doctors said that in the off chance she lived she’d be mentally retarded for the rest of her life. But now shes home & she’s talking, eating and even DRAWING! The strives she’s made in the last three days have been unbelievable. When I first saw her, she didn’t know her name or mine. Now, she is talking in relevancy coherent, complete sentences with the same mannerisms as before. She understands absolutely everything that is said to her, but has a difficult time finding the right words. Interestingly enough, one of her most noticeable speech impediments is that she has absolutely no perception of gender. Oh, and today she told my mom & I that she no longer wants to be “put to sleep forever!”
Best birthday presents a gal could ever ask for!!!!!!!!!!!!!
