I speak with my mom everyday on the phone. Dad says I sit there listening to every word even though I am a bit confused how I can hear but not see mom. Anyway mom had to have another drain thing put in last night. This is the third one and they are hoping it will help her breath easier. Moms original surgery developed a leak which meant bad stuff got into her body and caused abscesses. They had to drain these and now mom has fluid in her lungs. Mom wants nothing more than to come home and be with dad and me but dad says she has to stay there until she is 100% better. I miss my mom sooooooo much and have never been away from her so long. Mom says I have to say a special thank you to everyone as dad and and me are the only family she has here in the USA so she really appreciates all the wonderful comments

Dad took mom the iPod so she could write a message. They are now thinking it will be Thursday or Friday before she can come home. Mom has yet another infection that they are going to drain today. Mom has been having a lot of bad days and I know she needs me and I don't think it's right that they won't let me see her. Against my better judgment I even let my dad give me a bath in the hope he would take me to see mom. Dad says I must be getting stressed to as for the first time ever I actually gave a little growl when dad put me in the tub. I just want yo know why is this hospital place keeping my mom and why if it's supposed to make her better is she getting worse? I have a plan though I think I need all my buddies and we will plan a mom~napping. We can go in disguised as stuffies, hook our leads to the bed and everyone will think we are sled dogs. I don't think anyone will notice us zooming down the hallways. Will you help save my mom and bring her home?

Dad doesn't channel me as well as the mom so please bare with him. Mom is still in the hospital...the doctor says she might come home on Monday. I wish Dad had a therapy dog vest so he could take me to see her. We have also gotten bunches of snow. If I could stand on it I could escape because it is over the fence in my back yard. Here is what my front walk looks like.
Thank you all for you thoughts and prayers for my Mom.

Yeah, mom is home again. I was so happy I ran around chasing my tail!!!! That bad drain thing mom had got a bit infected so they cleaned it up and gave her antibiotics to take and today she is actually feeling better. We even played chase the red dot for ages this morning. We want to thank everyone for their wonderful comments, it meant a lot to Mom.

I am getting very confused. First my mom goes away to that hospital place for a whole week without me and when she comes homes she just sleeps and doesn't want to play. She was supposed to go there to get better but she doesn't seem "better to me". Then just when I thought things were getting back to normal she had to go back to that hospital - leaving me again and now today she has to go back again because the bleeding still hasn't stopped. I DON'T LIKE this hospital place as I KNOW for sure mom was better before she went and now she is just not happy which means I am not happy and Dad is not happy. I want to go with mom and dad today and bite this hospital thing (something I have never done before - bite something) but this hospital thing needs a good biting I think. Mom has asked "she who is never seen" to take me to the pet store today as silly mom is getting worried about ME not have time out. I forget to mention the blizard we had lad last week...over 3 days we got almost 16" of snow and with the winds blowing it, it is almost to the top of my fence in the backyard which means there is only a small area around the house for me to go out too. I am off to see if I can sneak into the back seat of the car so I can go with mom and dad.

The mom had to go back to hospital today - one of the things they call 'drains' just kept leaking blood constantly and my Dad started getting very worried. So off they went - leaving me behind (not fair cause I was worried too). They put some special 'stuff' over the hole to help close it up and she is home again resting now. I have decided I do not like my mom not being well...my Dad worries all the time and that makes me worry too.

Phew - I have been so busy looking after my mom. I have even been letting her have the occasional cuddles (and you all know I am not a cuddly dog except with my dad) I have also been really practicing "THE LOOK" That big soft brown eyes saying 'yes I understand mom, I'm here, pat my head and you will feel better' and I follow mom everywhere just to make sure nothing happens her - mom thinks me wanting to go to bathroom with her is a bit much though....but I was reading that is where most falls occur so I am sticking to my paws on this one. Mom had a pretty good today and we even played a little 'chase the red dot light' game. She can just relax in her rocking chair and shine it up and down the passage way for me chase. I did try getting her to play tuggie or throw and bought EVERY single toy from my box and put around her feet, but she wasn't too interested in that at the moment. I am sure a good game of tuggie would make her feel better. Of coarse there are some hidden benefits to mom not feeling well - the pain medication makes her a 'little fuzzy headed' as she says and yesterday she forgot I had breakfast and I got it twice!!!! "She who is never seen seen" fed me and then an hour later dad fed me too - woofitty woof - was that good! Dad had asked mom if I had breakfast but she couldn't remember. Hopefully in a few days we will be able to visit some out buddies blogs, we miss you lots and miss what is happening in your big dog houses.

Hi Woofitty Buddies. The mom is now home and doing okay. She sleeps a lot of time and doesn't want to play but I knows she isn't feeling the best yet so I just help my dad look after her and keep her company. Dad says I am not allowed to jump on the bed next to her so I have been spending all my time guarding the foot of bed making sure the sock monsters don't bother her. Thank you everyone for caring about my mom and the wonderful messages and thank you too for the Christmas cards I have been getting, they really make me and mom smiles.

Dear Blog Buddies - I won't be able to blog for the next couple of weeks and I hope you won't forget me while I am busy. It is something very important I have to do though - you see my mom has to go into that big scary place called a hospital to have surgery. I had surgery once when I was neutered and it was no fun but mom says she is not having this done. Anyway, next week I will be very busy helping my dad worry about her and then for the next few weeks I will be busy looking after mom when she comes home. When mom is feeling better, maybe I can bring her the laptop and we can blog just a little. If we don't get a chance though I want to wish everypup and their hoomans a very merry and safe Christmas. I hope you get lots of treats, stuffies and other cool things from Santa. Please keep your paws crossed for my mom on Tuesday and maybe say a little doggie prayer that everything goes well and she will be home as soon as possible - that is providing she gets there as they are forcasting 3-4 inches of snow on Monday night. I must admit I am a bit worried because I have never been away from my mom but my dad needs me so I will be a brave boy.

We are joining in Johann's Howling Howliday Giveaway this year and think everyfurone should too. He has some great prizes and the only thing you have to do is submit a Christmas/Winter photo. Morgan and Maisie are way out in front (GO GIRLS!!) and they have a beautiful photo on there - so go and check it out. When you first go on the page it seems a little confusing - but all you have to do is scroll down to the bottom of the page to the gallery and to vote you click on the stars under the photos.

Mom and I went out this morning to pay some bills and on the way back we stopped at the big lake to have a walk. All the grass has now turned brown and it all looks rather bleak again - not that I minded because smells never smell bleak! We didn't walk for very long as it is very cold and the wind coming off the water made it seem even colder - I thought it was just perfect but mom only had a thin coat on and she has some bruised ribs from an x-ray thing they did yesterday so she wasn't enjoying it as much as me. We also stopped in at PetSmart on the way home and I was having a lovely time sniffing around and checking out all the treats and toys. Mom let me get a box of cookies and a bag of treats! When we got the checkout there was a lady there and you know what she said? She said I reminded her of the furry walking coffee table in the "Beauty and the Beast Movie". How rude is that !!! Do I look like a coffee table to you ??? And if that wasn't bad enough, then she said what a "horrible dog I would be to have - with all that fur shedding everywhere". Mom was not happy and just about had steam coming out of her ears because it wasn't so much what the lady said, it was the mean way she said it. Mom says we will send a letter to Santa and ask him if the Reindeer can shed all over her carpet BOL.
