four weeks of fury!

reese is going to be four weeks old tomorrow! i can't believe it. he has changed so much and gotten so big. i love him so much.

(the day after surgery)

well, the last few weeks have been up and down. my dad had surgery on friday because he had a tumor on his bladder. turns out that it looks like it was malignant cancer. so they removed it, took biopsies of the lining of the bladder and the muscle and we are just waiting for the results to make sure it was cancerous. they gave him a treatment of chemo while he was there, and said that if it is cancerous that he will have to come back and have it done again. the doctor and nurse kind of made it seem like it is going to be ok and that even if he comes back it will be ok. i don't know major details but i would appriciate any prayers on his behalf.



another bummer, is that my cat of seventeen years died. her name was babie and i loved her so much. the poor little thing had been getting progressively worse over the last few months. my mom told me she thought she might put her to sleep because she was limping and hardly eating anything. when i called my dad the next day he told me that she had died and we all were bawling on the phone. i get really lonely for my little babie cat. she was one of my best friends. i got her when i was in 5th grade.

so the last week has been a little hard. luckily i have a wonderful husband and baby to keep my spirits up. i love them both with all of my heart and i am truly grateful for all the other blessings in my life.

That is too bad about your father. I will keep him in my prayers. Keep me updated on his condition. He is such a sweetheart, I truly hope he will be okay. Also sorry about your cat. I don't know if you remember my dog Lucky but when he died I was so sad. It is hard when your childhood pet dies.
