Grandma Update

Hi ho everybody,

Sorry I haven't been around, I have been taking care of my grandma. No, I haven't been to the hospital, I'm just sending her happy Boomer vibes.

Grandma had her surgery on Monday and it lasted five hours - yikes! The doctors said that the tumor was cancerous so they had to remove half of her left lung. They are in the process of biopsying the lymph nodes in that area. The doctor said that the lymph nodes looked okay but they needed to make sure. If the lymph nodes are okay there is a chance that grandma doesn't have to go through chemotherapy. Isn't that wonderful?!

Mom needs a vacation but I don't want her and pop to leave anytime soon, and they can't anyway because of grandma, so I'm thinking mom needs to go to Burke Williams Day Spa for a day of pampering. What do you think? Give me your comments and I'll pass them over to dad.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers, both human and poochie! Mom and grandma really do appreciate every one of them.

Boomer, mom's buddy boy...

Good to have you back Boomer, my human and I missed you. We will continue to keep our paws crossed for the biopsy. And yes, send mom to the spa for a day, the Stress Therapy day at the spa looks good.

Lots of drool,

Wimsey

I wish your grandma a speedy recovery. And you are such a good doggie to think of spa for your mum. I hope she gets to go. :)

Boomer--Good news about grandma and I hope her lymph nodes are clear--paws crossed! Now, about your mum. She DEFINITELY needs a spa day and probably a nice dinner out. So long as she brings you a doggie bag, right?

ps Jeannie here, I do hope Grandma gets better very soon, it is always such a worry these things, I have been through it too!

The music on your Blog.....is it Snow Patrol? Can't find it on your Blog, I am a big fan of theirs, and I am sure this is a track from them. Probably wrong though, I am always getting music wrong....! Lovely stuff though! Jeannie xxxx
