Dear Friends:
My Mom said to tell you that she is reading all your blogs and will try to catch up on all of them this week.  Grandpa is doing pretty well, at first he was so happy he came through his heart surgery  with flying colors, that we THOUGHT he would always just feel HAPPY, but now he is rather depressed, and we hope it will pass soon. Mom said the greatest gift she received was that she got to stay one whole day with just him, all by herself and they talked and talked.  She said she will never receive a better present for the rest of her life.  He cannot raise his right arm for two whole weeks and that is real hard for him, and he cannot drive for two whole weeks and that is super hard for him.
Her Mom found out Friday that she has precancerous spots inside her stomach.  The Dr. is going to get hold of the McCreary Cancer Center today to see what type of treatment he needs to do.  Sometimes mom feels like her shoulders are only so big.  She is the only kid that lives close by and she runs back and forth alot, thus not being able to blog much.  We are saying alot of prayers for both grandpa and grandma.

OUr friend Benny, a handsome little white french bulldog from Two French Bulldogs has been ill and found out he has liver cancer.  We want him to FIGHT LIKE A FRENCHIE and knock Cancer out of the ball park.  Please stop over to their page and help them kick cancers butt!!!!  We are all praying for him, and lily and his momma also.  Blogville friends have along the way became blogville family!

  1. Hi Stella,
    I love you post today because it is a reminder of the importance friends and family play in our lives. I know I would be so lost without both groups. I have been so sad ever since Benny got sick and I really really hope he gets better soon. He is a good guy - and good guys always win.
    Love Noodles

  2. We pray for Grandpa and Grandma. We know it must be awfully hard on you. We pray both of your folks come through these hard times healthy and well. Sending big hugs and POTP.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. We're keeping our paws crossed for your grandpa and grandma, and they've been crossed all weekend for Benny!

    PeeS: Don't let Scribbles fool you! He may LOOK sweet, but he's a big meanie.

  4. We are cheering for Benny. And we hope your Grandpa "behaves" himself while he has limitations so he can get better. Hugs for your mom. Her parents are more important than visiting or blogging, so she shouldn't worry about either.

  5. Praying for your grandma and granpa today, that they have good news for once. Praying for your momma, too, that she can hold everything up with those shoulders. And we are praying for Bennie, too... and his family, to hold him in their loving arms.

  6. We are sending our POTP fur your grandma and grandpa.

    You mom is right... that is a special day that she will never regret or forget.

  7. We are headed over to see Benny now. We hope everybody gets healthy at your place so your momma doesn't crack under the strain!!

    Your Pals,

  8. Stella Rose depression goes along with heart surgery. The very same thing happened to my Gpa many years ago when he had the same surgery. I don't know if it is all the meds and anesthesia they have during surgery but it will
    Hugs madi your BFFF

  9. Get well wishes being went to both you and Benny!

  10. we are sending get well wishes to your grand parents and of course we visited dear benny. cancer is such a nuisance mom lost her dad to it last year, but we are so glad that your grandma caught hers early

  11. Sending my prayers, good vibes and bestest thoughts to your grandpa and grandma.

  12. What a special treat for you to have that time together. We are thinking of you here, we know it is hard and we hope you are doing ok.

  13. So sorry to hear about the health issues with your parents right now. That is never easy. And, yes, depression is quite normal after heart surgery - both my parents had it. It makes the whole situation even harder to deal with, but it will hopefully pass soon.

    Hang in there. Sending positive thoughts to you and your family and to your friend, Benny!

  14. I hope that your family is feeling better soon. The big C is a scary thing! The fiance had it at 22 and it's had a huge impact on him, so I can only imagine how difficult it is for people to go through it.

    We hope Benny is feeling better soon, too. We sent him some well wishes earlier.

  15. We keep Grandpa and Grandma in our thoughts!!
    And power of the paws for Benny too!

  16. Hope Grampy feels better. Thank you for all your kind words friends
    Benny & Lily
