Thank you to everyone who expressed concern for Wendy Dog. The vet removed her SIXTEEN-pound spleen and said there was no metastasis that he could see. Fio and Husband will be able to bring their empty nest baby home today for recovery.
Along the same line, the geranium stubs, which Fio stuck back in the soil after the deer pulled them out of their pots and left them on the driveway, are sprouting little leaves again, for the second time around. Never say die.
Maybe there's hope for us all.
