This morning, at 2:30 AM, my little Pom woke us up screaming.......
I grabbed a towel, wrapped her up and cuddled her, talking to her,
trying to calm her, and David grabbed my phone to call the Vet on his
emergency number, and bless that man forever, he called back within
a minute.....he could hear her screaming and said meet me at the office.
So here we went, he got there about 3 minutes after us....he asked if
we wanted to put her on IV and sedate, and I let him look at her, and
he thought as we did, that she had a stroke. I said no, I didn't want her
suffering, because she had had a seizure, right before we left the house
that was bad.....she passed over the Rainbow Bridge in my arms with
David's hand on her head.
I am thankful God let me keep her as long as He did, 15 years of being
my little shadow....every step I took she was right behind me. The past
few days, I had to carry her out to go potty because her hip hurt her, and
I am thankful that last night, when I fixed supper for us, she knew the smell
of spaghetti and she loved it, so I cooked her a half hamburger, and a pot of
spaghetti for her and SammyK. She had her favorite meal, and then cuddling
I don't think I will ever get the sound of her screaming out of my head.....
She knew she was so loved, and I am so sorry it ended like this, but to watch
her suffer, just to be selfish and try to keep her with me, was not the right
thing to do.
Sammie, we will miss you but I know Junior met you at the Rainbow Bridge, and
you are together again.

For those of you who have been praying for Daniel and his team, they are now home as
of this past Wednesday. He said to thank everyone, that they believe all the prayers kept
them safe several times, as they had grenades go off less than 10 feet away and no one was
David is having heart issues. We had a stress test 2 weeks ago, which was not only useless but the Cardiologist said he was good to go, and he was still having chest pain, I freaked and called, they got him in the next morning.....he told the dr. he thought he needed a stent...so he said okay and scheduled him for a heart cath this past Monday.
To make a long story short, the dr. called in his cardio-surgeon, he said he cannot have any procedures or surgeries period. He said his odds, should he be forced to do surgery, would be less than 50-50 and he would have the whole family in because he does not think he will survive. His bypass artery is calcified, and he does not think he will be able to fix it. He said
"sometimes" the heart will grow around the block, so he is on a blood thinner and a pill to
treat his Angina....treating the symptoms in hopes the heart will repair itself.
So needless to say I am frantic...he has to lose 50 lbs.....to help his breathing. So my focus is on taking care of him and keeping him stress free and I am going to have to find some way to get all these bills paid off for stuff he bought thinking he would be doing work around the house....(not gonna happen)
The surgeon thinks we should not be riding the bikes, so it looks like we will go to the Harley dealer and see what he suggests we do, because we still owe on them too....got in 2010.
Please pray for him. He is close to our Lord, and believes he will be fine......
Please pray for me, to be strong and take care of him in whatever situation .....
Thank you and many Blessings,

Prayer needed immediately for our son Daniel and his team, they were
ambushed while on patrol. All we know is 1 killed and some wounded.
David called Daniel's CO at Ft. Bragg. They were in an ambush while on patrol, wounds
were minor and Daniel is safe....the fatality was a special forces member from another
Please hold him and his family in prayer.
Thanks from the bottom of our hearts for everyone who dropped what they were doing
and prayed...and please pray daily for the brave men and women who are standing between
us and those who would do us harm............

Laughing here, yes I am home and thank you to each of you who took the time
to read my blog and say a prayer....I did very well if you discount the swollen
lip that I evidently bit, and the sore throat from the intubation....seems to me
that causes more trouble than not....lol
Anyway, I staggered in and got on my scale this morning, and alas/alack, I did
not lose 5 lbs....after yesterday, I would have thought that would have been the
case....all the hurling and no eating.....my BP did spike on me last night and I
had to take a 1/2 tablet to bring it down....David must have checked it 5 times
while I was trying to get to sleep....when it started going down, he relaxed....
At any rate, I am home and seem to be fine except for a wee bit of soreness.
Talk to ya'll soon, blessings on each of you my friends,

Just wanted to let you know I will be AWOL for a few days on Spark, likely 2-3 days.
Depends on how well I recoup after surgery tomorrow.
The dr. ran 3 different tests and says my Gallbladder is only functioning at 6%, and
if it goes completely down, and stuff starts accumulating, there is a chance of getting
pancreatitis(which is usually fatal in any adult and most children) by my own research..
and the experience of a friend whose husband had it, and passed.
Just wanted to let you know where I am, and ask for any prayers you care to send up.
I do not do well with being anesthesized, so this may take all day......which is why I
avoid surgery like the plague.
Blessings and thanks in advance,
PS: Am downloading some pictures if I can get the fool thing to load out of the zipper
