I am so thankful Daddy was able to take you on a few “walks” in the cart! You were SO happy!
I miss you, little monkey!
My precious little one, you were such a joy! Who gets excited over celery, but you? I miss your tail wagging every morning and your “dance” before you get to eat your favorite foods, go outside, play with your toys or when we come home from being out a bit!
Most of all, I just miss having you by my side to love and talk to. It is so quiet and lonely here without you!
I love you little monkey!
I miss you my sweet, smarty pants! I am so lost without you by my side every day!
I love you, little monkey!
I have extremely heartbreaking news! Our baby Snickers went to Heaven in the middle of the night. She had a catastrophic stroke, most likely from the probable tumor in her brain that has been causing seizures and some neurological issues.
As many of you know, she wasn’t supposed to live more than a few days in November 2014. She wasn’t eating, her heart rate was 200 and she had a fatal heart condition, with Epilepsy. But I didn’t want to give up yet. I put supplements in a syringe and force fed her with them and she started walking and eating again. Then I made her fresh meats and vegetables. She has needed a ton of hands on care around the clock, including constant feeding since then. Nonetheless, she was happy, eating, wagging her tail and running around like a puppy. In fact, we had to slow her down most of the time!
Anyhow, several people have commented that they noticed we have been through a lot lately. I don’t want to be negative, but it has been unbelievable! The past few years alone, we have had constant crisis after death after crisis after death. 7 deaths, Mom and sister with cancer, 3 more family members really struggling and major crisis situations, in addition to my broken ankle (which a year later is still not totally healed), as well as recent flu, bronchial pneumonia and current torn ribs.
And now, my baby Snickers is gone. I am thankful for the time we had! But Mommy misses you SOOO much! Goodbye for now, my sweet little monkey! Thank you for bringing love and laughter into my life!
Meet my new friends, Luis and Tuesday! Let his story take you on a journey of how this soldier sustained debilitating, invisible injuries that nearly left him a prisoner in his own home. Luis lives with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury.
