"Oldie for Friday"

Hello Blog friends, followers and anyone who pressed the wrong button and just landed here!!!
Welcome to my little corner of Blog land.
I mentioned in my last Post that Thomas and his dad had taken Thomas` dog Corrie to the Vet School in Edinburgh for an MRI Scan,  On Wednesday she had a 3hour Operation to remove a 7cm almost 3" stick from her throat.  Corrie came through the operation but is still well drugged up and being looked after in Edinburgh.  The Vets are amazed she lived so long with that in her.  She already had an emergency operation a couple of months ago to remove the sick that Audrey had thrown for her.  She got over that, had been full of beans, eating an swimming most days ... till she developed a huge abscess that was oozzing "gunk" on her neck.  The local Vet thought it might have been a "small" piece of stick he had missed that was making its way out.  Nope!!! it was a bit bigger than that!!!!  Anyway that`s it dealt with, they hope to go through at the weekend to collect her although they think it might be Monday. 
It was the boys End of Term Performance at School Wednesday afternoon.  Thomas is moving on to High School after the summer.  When we went in Thomas looked awful he had not slept much since Monday.  During the performance John Jr received a message from the Vet School.  He went out to take the call, came back with a smile on his face, went straight to Thomas to give him the good news that Corrie had made it.  Thomas took on a totally different look from that minute on and enjoyed the rest of the event.

One Boy & hid Dog!!!

  4. Patricia I looked at the card and thought you had a similar one earlier this week, I was admiring the lace. A great oldie, the perfect colour combo and love the champagne glass too.
    Good to hear that Corrie did so well getting through her op. Onwards and upwards. A super photo of her and Thomas, bet he was very relieved all went well.

  6. So glad that Corrie came through his operation and is doing well. Beautiful card. the lemon and white is lovely.

  7. Hi Patricia, I'm so, so, pleased that Corrie came through her operation, Thomas will be over the moon when Corrie is back home with him.
    A lovely card, lovely 'bubbles'.

  8. Hi Patricia
    Good to hear all is well with Corrie. Sticks are such dangerous things for dogs. My friend threw one for her dog when we were walking her years ago and Misty ripped the corner of her mouth open when it caught on something.
    Lovely oldie. Love the pearl "bubbles".
    Have a great weekend.

  16. Hi Patricia,

    Surprise! Lol! I have been a terrible blogger, I just never seem to get chance to spend time commenting on posts much lately, we all know how much time it takes up. Anyhow a beautiful card, lovely soft colours.
    So glad your Grandsons dog made it through, awful time for him, bless. No more sticks for the dog I would think especially after it happening twice lol! My cat has just been to vets to remove an abscess on her head after a fight with next doors cat last week, I got a load out but my the vet got loads more ugh! Not learnt her lesson though and is still going after him when he ventures into our garden lol!
    Hope you are having a great weekend and the weather up there is good, its very muggy down here in the South East.

    Love & hUgs
