A BIG Thank You from Andrea

Dad spoke to Miss Andrea's Dad last night  and he told us that Andrea would like to send a BIG BIG thank you for all the wonderful cards she got - she was thrilled and loves every one of them and she especially loves the photo's of the us doggies that were included.  As you can see she has her very own furbaby - this is sweet little Millie and we know what an pawsome little nurse she has been.

For those that don't know - Andrea is our Dad's niece - she 13 and just before Christmas she had a spinal embolism.

We also have an update on how she is doing. She is now home and having lots of physical therapy. In April she will be going to Phoenix to have some follow up surgery. There are only a couple of neurosurgeons in the whole of the USA  that can do this type of surgery and she was very lucky to be able to get to see one. Basically she has a knot of blood vessels that weren't formed properly in her spine and which caused the embolism - the surgeon is going to try and fix these so they don't bleed again. They also had to remove part of a disk in her neck when they first stopped the bleeding so they are going to do a bone graft to fix that too. This will help her to hold her head up straight again. She still has a long road ahead of her to get to wellness but with lots of power of the paw and prayers we know each day will be better than the last.  


  1. She looks fantastic! Sending her lots of love and healing wishes.

  2. We totally agree that little Millie the dog is taking good care of her human! We are happy to hear Andrea loved all the cards us doggies sent her.

  3. That is great and we so hope the surgery will fix the problem. Sending all our love and big hugs.
    Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly
