Thank you

I just wanted to let you all know that my mom really appreciated your kinds thoughts. The mom has this thing called SLE (systemic lupus) and also rheumatoid arthritis. She has had this she was 20 years olds and goes through these things called flares ups. Don't tell her I told you but when she's in a lot of pain she gets very grumpy and is a bit like a bear with a sore head. I am not really sure what a bear is or why it would have a sore head but that is what dad says she can be like. Hmm I wonder if the bear ran into a wall? I have done that once or twice when I was playing with my red dot light and not watching where I was oh dog you see lots of red lights flashing when that happens :)

Oh.....did you know lupus is latin for wolf.......hmm do you think my mom is part wolf - maybe that is why she is growly when she's hurting??? Anyway, mom is in a pretty bad flare up at the moment so it's hard for he to do things as all her joints are swollen. I just know she is finding is hard to walk which means I don't get to go for a walkies and I love my walkies. We did go visit Franklin today though so at least I got to go out of my yard. Mom's fingers are also very bad and she can only type with one hand at the moment. Mom say's it will pass and I sure hope so because the spring is here and its a great time for going to the park and having fun. In the meantime, I will just be here for my mom, looking after her and letting her pat me when she want too......but NO cuddles....... cuddles are yukky unless it's with my dad, I love dad cuddles.


  1. We really hope your Mum gets better soon.

  2. Hi Reilly and Reilly's mom!
    Reilly, you are such a good pal to your mom! Just the love you give will help her each day. And mom, our heart goes out to you. We know it must be incredibly difficult for you at times and we hope you have some good folks that can step in to help sometimes.

  3. Sorry to hear that your Mom still isn't feeling well, Reilly. You know - for a time they suspected that our Mom was half human & half wolf, too, because she also has these nasty flares. Now they are not sure and think it may not be lupus but Fibromyalgia. Whatever it is though, our Mom understands very well how your Mom is feeling. Have a very Happy Easter the three of you!
    Love, Josh, Jess and their Ma

  4. Oh, Reilly, we're sorry your mom is having a bad time right now! We send her positive and healing thoughts! Hope she feels well enough soon to take you on a walk in the park!

  5. I'm so sorry to hear that your mom isn't feeling well. I hope that she's right and it's just a flare up and that she's feeling better soon!
