Boring Weekend

It has been a very quiet weekend as it rained most of the time and we really haven't done anything. We have some news to share about Franklin's mom though. She came home late Saturday after the doctors decided that given her age there really wasn't anything they could do except to keep her pain free. She has a crumbling spine and has already had 11 operations and to try and fix it. Mom hasn't been able to go and visit yet as 'she who is never seen- dad's hooman daughter" has some sort of virus causing bronchitis and mom doesn't want to risk Franklin's mom getting that and it putting her back in hospital. We did see Franklin Saturday morning although he was more then a little tipsy. Franklin suffers so badly when it thunders that he has to have a tranquilizer otherwise he hyperventilates and trembles from butt to nose. Saturday morning we had a really bad storm so Bonnies daughter gave him one of his 'wobbly' pills. He is so funny to watch as he staggers around looking for all the world as if he had just come out of pub. It does help him though and that is the main thing.



  1. Sorry the news about Franklin's mom isn't better - hopefully the doctors will be able to keep her comfortable.

  2. We do hope that Bonnie can manage to get her pain under control and stay mobile - she really seems to enjoy being out with Franklin.
    We had a laugh at the thought of poor Franklin nipping down the put for a quick one!
    Ah well the main thing is it helps.
    Wise decision to stay away from Bonnie meantime - she doesn't want to risk any nasty infections.
    When you do see her please tell we were asking for her. We have been thinking about her over here in Scotland.
    Much love
