Hello? Is there anyone there?

*tap tap*

Well it has definitely been a while, and I can honestly say that I’ve enjoyed the break. A break that was initially only supposed to be a couple of days but became that, and a whole lot more.

Not a whole lot has happened in the time that I’ve been away.

The things of note have been that I’ve finally been given the all clear with my heart, and pending losing some weight that I gained while I was ill, all is back to normal, and if I can continue improving over the next 12 months I’ll be able to stop taking all medications. Hooray!
So no transplant, or surgically implanted defibrillator. Definitely good news.

In the not so good news department, a couple of weeks ago our dog Dolce was diagnosed with Lymphoma. It’s pretty advanced, and due to the excessive costs and no guarantee of a success, we’ve decided against putting her through the trials of Chemotherapy.
So we’re spoiling her rotten, giving her prescribed drugs each day to keep her comfortable and enjoying what time we have left with her.

So far she’s oblivious to her own illness, and completely enjoying all the extra attention and treats. It’s all about her quality of life for now, and that she’s getting.
She’s had pride of place in the front seat of the car today, gallivanted all around Seattle, made Mark sit in the back seat while she continued to enjoy sitting “shotgun” and now, in the wee hours of the new morning, is snoring up a storm on her mat after scoffing down yet another treat.

Oh, and she’s recently had solar powered air conditioning fitted to her kennel for additional comfort.


So, I hope you’ve all been well. I’ll attempt to be a little more diligent with my blogging habits, but I’m not making any promises.

I must say though, I have missed my “chats” with my silent audience.

Sorry to hear Dolce is not doing to well. But you’re great parents by treating her with special things. In case you need to cool down, go to the kennel and lie with Dolce. 😉
