Just thursday...

For the first time since I came to live with my mom and my grandparents, I spent almost all the day alone.

Do you remember some days ago I told you my grandma had a "tummyache"?? Well... thanks to that, her Doctor ordered several tests. And one of those tests showed an ovarian cyst. A big one. Same size as my pink ball. Thankfully the "C" word is out of the picture! But she needs a surgery to take it away.

Today, she and my grandpa went again to see the Doctor, and then another to make sure her heart is ok for the surgery. Everything is in order and she will have the op in 10 more days.

When my mom came from work, they were not at home yet and I was soooo happy to see her! And of course I complained... very loud.... of all the time I was alone.

Soooo, to stop all the whining we went out for my walkie. No pictures of that... my mom forgot the camera!

Snoopervising the treasures we found on my walkie!

I am sure all the people we see when we are outside, think my mom is crazy. First, because she talks to me all the time and second, because she always looks to the ground to make sure I don't step on something that could hurt my paws. Then, she picks all the things she finds on the ground. Well... not all of them... just the "interesting" ones! Haaa!

Can we play now??


Have a good night

Oh dear, so many dangerous sharp stuffs on the ground! Hoomie Melissa has found broken glass on the grassy land we walk on everyday. Faith's paw got lacerated the last time when she stepped on glass. It needed stitching. Anyway, I'll be praying for your grandma that she has a safe & smooth surgery!

I am so very much relieved that your grandma doesn't have that bad C-thing. But I'm still sorry she has to have an operation. My paws are crossed super tight for her.

I think your mom is just the best for picking up all those stray things on your walkie. It helps keep things clean and now nobuddy will hurt themselves on it!
