Hi Blog Friends!
What a change in temps!! Babe' it's COLD outside.
So, today I'm working on turning gourds into Easter baskets.
Last summer I planted some gourd seeds in hopes they would grow, so I could dry them and make some baskets. Well I got a boat load of the gourds, but the drying process did not go as well and many of the gourds are of no use.
Below are all I could salvage.......
I've cut the tops off and am in the process of cleaning and deciding if I'll age them a bit.
Then drill and add some rusty wire for the handles.
The hardest part was cutting the tops off. Gave my wrists quite the workout.
Last night I had to rush Lil' Snoopy to the vets again.
He kept acting like he was in pain, then started vomiting again.
For those who don't know~ about six months ago he was diagnosed with liver disease.
Well, last night I pleaded to have the vet do a sonogram on him, but the problem was I did not have $250 to pay for it. I'd already paid over $900 in the last few months for tests and meds. Well, the tech was so nice, and had such compassion, she did it for me with a charge of only $37 bucks. Thank you God.
Well, the test shows his liver is fine!!! But his gallbladder is twice its size and one of the main glands is inflamed. They gave him another antibiotic and pain meds and told me they'd call sometime today to let me know what I will have to do next. If the gallbladder doesn't heal itself, I'll have to have it removed. They said it runs around $2000 for the surgery. I love my Lil' Snoopy and would do anything for him, but have no idea how I'll be paying for this surgery if needed.
If you could say just a lil' prayer for him, we would both appreciate it.
Has anyone else had a dog with a gallbladder problem? I'd love to know what to expect.
Thank you for stopping by today ~
I'll be posting about the improvements of our home soon.
Blessings ~ Jean
