Update

Just wanted to let everyone know their thoughts and prayers have done the trick! Bo is doing MUCH better, and has a lot more energy today. He is still too weak to go for walks, or to play with his sister, Chrissy. But I knew he was getting better when he started sifting through the office wastebasket for paper yesterday. Thank you all for your prayers, good thoughts, and concern.

One of my heirloom roses: Gruss an Aachen

Nola, these are the Glads you sent me last Fall. They bloomed about a month ago, and were beautiful.

I'm so very pleased Bocephus is improving, he has not left my thoughts since you told us. The investigation of the waste-paper basket is a very good sign!!

The words you wrote about Walt Disney films and crying uncontrollably as a child could have been written by me! I was EXACTLY the same, even now my husband has to cut reports of cruelty cases out of the newspaper before I see them.

I do hope Bocephus continues to improve and that he is back to his old self before very long, I know he couldn't be in better hands.

Your blooms are so pretty, I can almost smell the scent of that lovely rose.

Glad to hear the good news. Pretty Glads!!!

Rose said...

That is good news, indeed! So glad that Bocephus is doing better. Your rose looks beautiful.

I'm so glad he's feeling better. If they could only talk to us so we would know.

Hello Shy Songbird! Thank you for all the good thoughts. I truly do believe it helps. The side of his face is healing nicely, and he is back to a lot of his old trick this morning. He broke one of my dishes, trying to steal some food this morning as soon as my back was turned! I can't get too mad at him because he was so sick, this is a sure sign he is better! LOL!

I used to frustrate my parents so much as a child with (what they viewed as) my unrealistic attitudes to animals. They were both brought up on farms and had a very tough mentality towards them.

I don't watch the news on TV or read the newspaper other than the comics, sale ads, gardening and About Town sections...my World History and Geography Professors would be SO disappointed in me! LOL! I have just learned over the years, it is not worth the personal angst and depression to stay up on current events. It is so nice to know there are others that share my feelings!

Hi Susie! The Glads were very pretty--I just wish my pics had come out better--the one I showed was the least blurry of all the photos I took. Sometimes the magic (picture taking) works, and sometimes it doesn't! ;-)

Rose, Thanks for the good thoughts coming Bo's way, and the nice comment on my pretty pink rose.

Morning Glories in Round Rock said...

Oh, Marnie! I know! He could have told me he had an earache, and I could have taken him to Dr. Shane much sooner! But, I am just so glad he is on the mend.

Monica, thanks for the cheer...Bo is ready to take on the world now...right after he takes his afternoon nap. ;-)

Cheryl said...

I am so pleased that Bocephus is gaining his strength......when our treasured pets are ill, it is such a worry......I am a great believer in the power of thought and prayer.......

The rose is so beautiful.....

Another day tomorrow, hopefully you will see even more strength in your Bo......

Hello Cheryl, Bocephus is doing so much better! He broke a dish this morning trying to steal a dish of chili rellenos I had sitting out on the counter to make lunch! The minute my back was turned--SPLAT! Yes, he is getting better! LOL!

Wendy said...

Great news!! I'm glad Bocephus is back to normal. Yes, I do believe positive thought and prayer work wonders.

Love your pretty pink flowers. Roses and glads - sounds like summer. Yippeeee!

Morning Glories in Round Rock said...

Wendy, it looks like summer, and it feels like summer!

Just found your blog. I can sure empathize with you with your family member suffering. I have 2 daughters who are bi-polar and we have been through the fire. Have a son-in-law right now who just lost his job. We have a son in Austin Tx. Stop by and visit in my neck of the world. Prayers are with you and your family.

Peggy, thanks for stopping by--I look forward to getting to know you better. Thanks for all the good thoughts and prayers. They do help. Sadly, Brother-In-Law is not recovering as quickly as Bocephus. He is struggling, and it hurts so much to try and talk to him and realize there is so little we can do.

Nola @ the Alamo said...

Glad Bo's better! Sniffing the wastebasket is a good sign; and look for a wagging tail, too!
Those glads bloomed well; usually they don't do well the first year, but by the second year, they're so full! Mine have come and gone, too; spring is so short here in Texas.

Morning Glories in Round Rock said...

Hi Nola,

Bo is doing so much better, that I am having to watch that he doesn't overdo. He is on some pretty heavy duty meds, and needs to be careful. I'll be glad to get him off the prednisone especially.

Spring is so short here in Texas if you blink, you'll miss it! I have been meaning to show the glads for so long--but life just seems to get in the way. But--they were beautiful, and they will have to be one of those flowers that I rename Nola's Glads.

Hi,

Thanks for visiting my blog and your concern for our sweet "gardening greyhound" Charm. She's doing better today, but she's so traumatized by having another dog attack her in her own yard. The puncture wounds are being watched carefully and she's on antibiotics, pain meds and even valium to help her relax. Our vet is having us use honey on the puncture wounds. It is being used a lot here for burn victims at the hospital and the vet came from New Zealand where it is used for animals, too.

Wishing for the best for your Bo. Our thoughts and prayers for his speedy recovery.

Cameron

Cameron,

Thanks for stopping by.

I can't imagine how horrible that attack must have been--for Charm--and for you! Sending good thoughts and prayers for health and healing Charm's way.

Nola sent me the same glads! And they're beautiful. Pass along plants are always the best.

Hi Brenda,

Thanks for stopping by. Pass-along plants are the best! I do love a good plant story, and pass-along stories always makes that plant special. Everyone loved Nola's Glads.
