Monday, February 22

Our Spencer is hanging on and fighting...just what we hoped he would do. If I understand correctly, he has two infections in his throat, one is staph, and I can't pronounce the other! The docs are hoping that the subsequent x-rays will show that the pneumonia is subsiding, too. Evidently, there is a lag time between healing and proof on film. Time will tell, I suppose. Spencer is also being treated for a fungal infection. So, you see, his little body is working overtime. Other than telling you that we are optimistic and praying for him, there isn't much else to tell today. So many of ya'll are so thoughtful about checking in that I thought it only right to give you a bit of an update.

Tomorrow, I'll have the pleasure of Logan's company. I'll pick him up from school and he'll stay overnight with me. The pups will be ecstatic to see him. And, if the schedule holds, he will also be with me Friday night and most of the day Saturday. What a lucky Lulu am I. :)

The weather was wonderfully mild this past weekend. I spent most of it outdoors--mowing the yard, pulling weeds, cleaning the deck, working on the vegetable garden area, and the list goes on. I was tired in the back this morning but it was oh, so worth it! And I have bluebonnets that have reseeded from last year. That was a great surprise.  Now that the bluebonnets are settled, I can safely call this home. Seriously though--Mark loved having bluebonnets, and it makes me smile to have them. Keeps his memory a bit closer.

Wonder if we will indeed have ice and/or snow tomorrow?

I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.  For me they are the role model for being alive.  ~Gilda Radner
