#1 We have a new girl grandmonster in our family now. She was born on Saturday. Mom says she is very healthy, and very beautiful. Momma says grandmonsters make your heart fall in love with them in one second. I asked her like she fell in love wif us, and she said her heart has room for everyone. So now Momma has 4 girls and 5 boys. She says when she is really really old she will have lots of love surrounding her. She toles us when she got home last night (yes she had to be gone from us overnight) that the little boy grandmonster and hers had such a good day waiting on his new sister. It was the best Christmas present.
#2 We are still working on our Christmas cards. Every night Mom has plans of working on them, and she has slowly but she needs to get faster. We are behind and we are getting ours in the mail. Today we read on https://birdbrainsanddogtales.wordpress.com/ that they need us to save our stamps that we receive in the mail to help out other doggies.
#3 The latest update with our Macey is that they are very positive it was the bacteria called Bartonella henselae is the evil germ that has caused Macey's illness. We have since found out it affects, heart, liver, spleen, lymph nodes, and several people have came up to us and told us stories of friends or loved ones, that have had to spend a long time in the ICU just recovering from this bacteria. We believe since Macey was so healthy when she got it that has helped her to be not as sick. So far this evil germ has created a heart murmur, blood cells that give the appearance of blood cancer, anemia, and of course the swelling of her leg and foot. The CDC doc did tell us it could take a long time for her swelling to go away. We are still waiting on them to get smart enough to decide which antibiotic to put her on and when that happens we get worried that aren't really all that smart and even know what they are talking about.. We feel even though these past months have been scary and heart hurting we have also been blessed by how well it has turned out, and all of our family (you) and others that have stepped up in one way or another. We will never forget it.
#4 Mom has mentioned a few times about her job and if she would still have it after the election. Well, her boss did not win the reelection but last week she found out she will be staying on as his fulltime private legal secretary. That was a real blessing and took a lot of worries off of her shoulders. She is very thankful.
Well it is Monday and we have GOBS of catching up to do on your blogs. Plus Gussie is working hard on his application to Santa concerning being his own private body guard. Mom and I just shake our head. We personally think it should be Maggie who applies cos she is one at our house that is the tough one.
We are also remembering our families who are waking up to loved ones, looking down upon them. All our love.
Stella Rose and Momma
