Spending the day with Sydney  
It was a pretty nice day off. After giving Sydney her pills this morning, I took her for a short walk and it was nice to just spend some time alone with her. She seemed to enjoy being outdoors and seemed to have more energy as soon as she went outside. :) I brought my camera along and took a few photos of her.

She looks about a hundred times better than she did just a week ago and Mark & I still can't believe that we were blessed enough to have been given a second chance with her. Thank you all for your good thoughts and prayers! :) The vet is running another blood chemistry test to determine the current condition of her liver, hopefully it'll show an improvement over the test we had done about two weeks ago. But I guess it's a good sign that even our pessimistic vet is seeing clear signs of improvement.

And I'm going back to work tomorrow, but I have the rest of the week off. :) I'm finally starting my web design classes at CTA on Thursday and Friday! :) I'm very excited about them and for the first time it feels like I'm doing something productive to break free from my job. :) It's very liberating. :)

What a sweeeeEEEeetie! I love the pictures and I especially love the new one you're using of her on the bed...sofa?

Thank you! :) The photo in the icon was taken about a year ago when Mark was testing out his new digital camera - I think it was the first picture I ever posted in LJ of her. And she's lying around on her favorite place on the sofa in our living room. :)

She looks good! Wow she looks so much like Mort it is almost scarey
Except Mortie is a little bit bigger. Enjoy your week, and your new class! I'm off to talk with Andrew's teacher this evening. Grr!
I have been telling myself "I will not lose it, I will not lose it!"

Thanks Barb! Sydney is a little on the smaller side - she was the littlest of the litter and for a long time after we got her, we could hold her on one arm. :) I hope everything went well with Andrew's teacher this evening. Please take care and I'd love to see more photos of Mortie.

Thanks for sharing the photos. Sydney is such a lovable dog, I always love to see photos of her. :) And she looks well - I'm crossing my fingers that the improvement will go on this way.

I'm glad that you are looking forward to your web design classes and I hope you will enjoy them.

Sherishutterbug93 on November 12th, 2003 09:36 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much, Sabine for everything - the good thoughts and the support when all I had was bad news. You've been a wonderful support to me through all of this. Hopefully these are all good signs for Sydney, but we're feeling a little more confident about her condition the stronger and more like herself she gets. *HUGS* to you and please don't forget to give one to Lauser for me. :)
