Well whaddya know - here we are with a HUGE thank-you

From Mom Kim (ALREADY EVEN)  It only seemed fitting that this post be included in the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop altho I really cannot limit my thanks to just one day.

Well I would have NEVER thought I would be typing this already - I will NEVER stop being amazed at the power of prayer from Blogville and all other friends and family.  I so appreciate all the prayers, words of comfort and support and good vibes from allI was finally able to return to work earlier Tuesday(9/17) afternoon after my eye doctor appt.  Last week, after the lens kept coming out during the night, I contacted my specialist and spoke with one of his nurses - I told her what was happening and how frustrated I was and asked if she had any ideas.  Her answer - try using a little piece of tape to hold the eye shut during the nite which basically made it impossible for the lens to have room to come out - BINGO!

I saw my local eye doctor and now it was his turn to be really encouraged.  So that is where my vision problem stands now and for the next few weeks - unless I develop a new problem or the lens comes out, I don't return to either of my eye doctors UNTIL AFTER I have this BCC (Basal Cell Carcinoma) on my nose taken care of and it has some time to heal- surgery for that is Monday, 9/23/13.

Now then, I also have an update on my Shiloh-man.

Some of you may recognize this pic - it is a few months old HOWEVER the action is typical of what was FINALLY going on in my livingroom a couple of days ago.

Oh did it ever give my heart a big ole'warm fuzzy.  That was the FIRST time Shiloh had played with Diva Shasta for a few weeks.

You may not be able to see the chair, but this was the FIRST time Shiloh was up in 
his favorite chair 

 One time I looked in the chair and saw something like this HOWEVER I began thinking 

that maybe Diva Shasta laying on Shiloh's back just may NOT be helping at all so-

 now, if I see them then 
I make Diva Shasta lay beside Shiloh.
(at least for awhile)

because I really would like to see 
more of this-

Another change I made, altho not entirely new, Shiloh'n Diva Shasta are both back on their Duralactin - I had run out and never did re-order - the improvement continues.
You can look HERE for when I first posted about the Beaglebratz's response to it.

Ok - that is enuf for now - not making plans for our next post - all I will say is I hope me and/or
the B-bratz are back in a day or two.

And once again-
Mom Kim

WooHoo! What a great week for good news - keeping the eye closed at night is a winner. Prayers cont., esp. after seeing Shiloh playing, napping (in a chair), and laying with the Diva. Oh, Happy Day!
