Daffy's Stitchy Friends

Friends

I had a little finish over the weekend. This was a quick and fun stitch. Snowmen and Cardinals? Two of my favorites and I know many of you love them as well.


Design ~ Friends #F47
Designer ~ Lizzie*Kate
Fabric ~ 28 count unknown/unlabeled Linen
Fiber ~ DMC


Of course, I have news of my best-est friend ~ Sheba! Her surgery went very well. The vet was able to remove the enlarged thyroid without a problem. She left the other, normal-sized and normal-looking, thyroid and this is good news! That means Sheba probably won't have to be on thyroid supplement medicine for the rest of her life. Results from the biopsy come in a week. The vet said her heart rate was already lower and I haven't seen her panting at all. It should take a week to ten days for her thyroid levels to come down to normal. She will need periodic blood tests to see where it's at.

Poor Sheba came home about five o-clock this evening. She took a ten-minute drink of water and laid down in a favorite spot in front of the door and hasn't moved. We coaxed her into eating some boiled chicken, rice and yogurt and she's had a pain pill. It really hurt to swallow. It breaks our hearts to see her in so much pain! I'm hoping she bounces back quickly. More news when it comes.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Wonderful news regarding Sheba. Your little finish is too cute. Now how were you able to stitch during that Wow game? I had to put mine down for fear of making a big boo-boo.

Love the stitching! I'm so glad the surgery went well for Sheba. Poor thing -- I think it's doubly hard when one's pets go through surgery and are in pain. How do you explain it to them that it was necessary or explain the pain? Hope she's feeling better soon.!

Great to here Sheba did well in surgery. She will start feeling better soon. If I can relate to an animal... I know how she feels, I had one of my thyroids remove a year ago this month.
