On The Mend

Without going into too much detail, suffice it to say that Pat has had all devices and tubes and such removed and the medical professionals have brought her to the point where they can NOW try to find what caused all of this in the first place.
After 11 days in the Intensive Care Unit, Pat was moved to a regular hospital room and has undergone a series of tests, some of which we have results for, others we are still waiting on.
Pat will soon be transferred to a rehabilitation facility to get her strength back and get ready to come home.
Your kind thoughts and prayers have helped her through the worst of this, I’m sure.
And while she can’t yet post on this blog, she has read your posts using a tablet and gives you all a big THANK YOU!

On another note: Chloe has disappeared without a trace.



Pat Update

Pat has been in the intensive care unit now for 6 days.
We think things are slowly getting better.
Many of the medicines that have been helping her have been reduced or removed and she is now breathing on her own and can speak with me.
We still have a long way to go, but she wanted me to update you kind folks on her blog.
She feels your good thoughts and prayers have helped.


Pat Needs Your Prayers and Kind Thoughts

Pat’s health was improving until Thursday night, Sep 10th when she was rushed to the hospital with multiple problems. We almost lost her that night.
Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
She is currently in the Intensive Care Unit and I am with her all day long.

Also of sadness: Darling dog Chloe somehow got out of the house over a week ago and hasn’t been seen since. I have searched and searched and done all the proper things and she is tagged and microchipped so maybe she’ll find her way home, somehow. I’m afraid she thought she could find Pat.

I”ll monitor this blog for her while she’s ill and convey your messages to her.

Time Out

Taking time away from Bailey Road to try to get a handle on some health issues I’ve been dealing with all summer. Hope to be back soon.

At the Watering Hole

Small birds, like this little Chickadee, like to drink water from the ant moat on the hummingbird feeder.
