I haven't taken LimLim to the vet to access her "bum problem" yet... because the smell comes and goes, so when it goes I forget to make an appointment to take her. I also think the prob may have been from the recent kong ingredients- peanut butter and more mushy stuff. So I've been putting more of her Evo dogfood in it now instead of mushy stuff. I also had an idea, course I haven't asked yet cuz I keep forgetting to, but I was maybe gonna see if Lester vet, Dr. Matt could perhaps preform the procedure- but I still have to ask and see...

Like I mentioned before Lester and I played a part in John and Laura's wedding 5 years ago...and what home coming is complete without a picture with me in it? John has ALWAYs teased me about having too many pics of myself ever since he visited my apartment one time and saw a whole table full of framed pics of me and my animals, mostly Lester and I at horse shows Thank you very much! Anyways, ever since that and me sleeping in the back of his suburban after a greyhound field trip (everyone else was smashed in the vehicle) all stretched out he's called me the "Princess". He says I'm high maintenance and the worst kind, that I don't think I am.... well John is pretty HM himself:-)
But I'm very HAPPY to report that John is home! He came home this afternoon and I got to chat with him some. He was laying down on the sofa with his cat in his lap... He said he stumped his surgeon with the question of "what breed of cow did my heart valve come from", that's John for you!

So I have no idea what any of you have been up to because I haven't had anytime to check blogs, read email or do anything, but work. We decided this week would be a good one to disconnect over 800 nonpaying customers, while we're a man short in dispatch. I don't mind the busy work, but I'm VERY behind on my other work. I've also been working till 8pm.
John is doing better and better! He's in a private room (I think I read that today/ I haven't talked to Laura yet), they have made him get up and sit in a chair a few times a day, Laura was able to bring him some outside food- a smoothie, and some soup!
The ponies are tucked in tight with their blankies tonight, it's going to be in the low 20's by morning! :-o

Laura sounded like she was on cloud nine when she called :-) Yeah I'm so happy for her, for all of us!
Though their surgeries were far different from one another, both are Miracles.
John is still stable and in the ICU. Over the last day and a half John has been under lighter sedation with positive results. He's responding to the people around him, turning his head in the direction he hears someone talking and opening his eyes.
The next step is taking him off the ventilator, but the doctors won't rush it and won't give a day/ time.
keep jingling! Thank you all!

It was a LONG day for Laura and I'm kicking myself for not going and staying with her yesterday:-( She and I used to be roommates, along with 7 dogs :-) I knew if I had asked if she wanted me to come along she would have said no, so I should have just gone... but I went to the farm last night about 9pm to stay and be the night watchman- hay the horses one last time and let the dogs potty one last time before bed.
So more Jingles for John and hang in there Laura!

There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of her and wish she was still here. I long to feel her furry rested head on my shoulder at every red light I come to.
I have never loved a dog so much and don't plan to again, if I can help it. I'm weird like that.
I miss you, my one and only "Heart" dog.

We aren't positive that sweet lil' Peanut is the one that caused Stacker's injury , but it's probably a safe bet this was when he got hurt. Stacker is owned by my BIL-brother in law, Stephen. Between he and my sister, Jen, they have 6 greyhounds.
I'm sorry, I laugh every time:-) I couldn't add any bubbles to this one cuz I didn't upload it, so you guys can post in the comments what Stacker and Peanut would have said.
It was brought to my attention that Stacker doesn't accept Peanut's apology , but thankfully my sister has determined that he doesn't make a great character witness himself... apparently he has a history of this sort of thing.

It was looking bleak pretty much most of the afternoon after I had made my prediction/ bet.... my boss would walk by to see if I had done it yet... he and another co-worker said that was my only job for the day :-) they saw alot of close calls, but it just wouldn't stay, I was sure this globe was an Obama supporter....When my wrists started to hurt I put the globe down and took a break and did some work...until voila about 3:40PM I did it! there it sits- of course I had to take a pic... now I have to be careful not to bump it! As you can see it's sitting very close to my keyboard....
Ah, nothing like a job well done.
Either way this election is living history...
