I have been thinking about you lately Tami. I hope no news is good news and you are enjoying some relative cruise control. Can't think of a household who needs it more....

We are hanging in there. The ulcer returned in her right eye. The left eye, as of 10 days ago, was about 98% healed.

Her blood sugar has been going low and we have been reducing her insulin by quite a bit. Not sure what's up there....

We are just taking it day by day and loving on her ALL the time She tolerates my obsession with her quite well....

Thanks for asking!

Tami,

I am glad the one eye is doing better, but just like with us, you get one problem eliminated and three more spring up from nowhere.

I know it is tough, we wake up in a different world every week, but taking it all day by day seems to work for us as well. We gotta love on these girls as much as we can every day. Sounds like you are doing a great job of that!

Hang in there!

Amy

I know the fear those unexplained lows can cause, but I imagine if it wasn't that there would be something else, real or imagined, that would be looming.

There just comes a times when it is all you can do to stay in the present and enjoy what is with you now.

Lending you my strength to do just that.

Give Miss Soaphie a cuddle for me.

Tara
