What a 24 hours!

I'm so totally thankful and grateful for each and every one of your kind comments about Ren. I honestly couldn't believe as we took one hour at the time. I'm so lucky to have a vet that I've known for 10 years who knows me and our little furbabies. So, first thing this morning, I called him and he answered right away and said Ren was doing much better and we talked about reassessing everything, no heroics, we just want to make him comfortable due to his age.
After Ren got IV fluids he perked up and as his labs showed his thyroid had been functioning way overtime. His kidneys were not as bad as they first thought initially. Of course, he is old.

The Doctor knew we were coming at 4pm today. He didn't feel at this time he was suffering and had actually ate quite well today. He said not at this time  but if he got sick again real soon, it will be a different story.
We talked a long time and we brought him home with medication for his thyroid. Ren was glad to be in my arms again. And when I brought him home, he went walking around and  then curled up in his blanket.

So for this day, he is resting at home and as long as he is not suffering we will let him be.
We will take it one day at the time.
He is resting quite well now in his own blanket and Abbie has welcomed him back home with lots of barks!

I know this is so controversial and I do appreciate your support through this. It's been one busy day.
Besides this and figuring out fixing things from the lightning incident, we also found out we have hail pings all over our new car from the storm night before last.  Will it ever get better??????  LOL

Early this morning, I got some stitching done, not much, but a little.
I hope to get a little more stitching done this evening as I watch some TV and just veg out.

I decided to use this blue homespun fabric here instead of the red.

Of course, the With My Needle sampler is also begging me for a finish too. R and R fabric is very stiff, sorry for the wrinkles......

So, I have a few things to work on tonight while I catch up on the latest cases on Nancy Grace and CNN.

Blessings today:

Ren is better....for now


sunny skies

  friends who are the best

Our family is thanking each and every one of you from the bottom of our hearts.

Till later,
stay safe and sunny

  14. I am glad to hear Ren is back home and feeling better. That is all we can do is to take one day at a time but it is still hard, and they seem so helpless at times it just breaks your heart. I'll keep him in my thoughts.

  16. I am so happy to read about Ren and so glad he came home and is comfortable.

  17. Praying for Ren. I know all too well how you feel.

    So nice to see you blogging again. I just started a new stitching blog after being absent for awhile. I missed communicating with fellow stitchers.

    Hi Becky,

    I decided to start up a new blog due to the problem I was having with my old blog. Seems my blog’s blogger address was closely named as another blog and there was so much confusion with the other blog readers that I was spending time everyday replying back to people who thought my blog was the other. Needless to say it was no longer fun when the other blogger started sending me not so nice messages about the address confusion. So I stopped blogging but have missed it everyday.
    Woke up and decided to start anew and start blogging again. The name of my blog is indeed a tribute to the EAT PRAY LOVE book which I loved. The three things I love the most EAT STITCH LOVE will be the focus of my blog with some gardening thrown in.

    Sooooo if you would please—and yes I’m begging—follow me on my new blog , you would make my day!!

    Thank you and hugs


  18. Oh poor sweet Ren. I am so glad for you that he pulled through this rough patch. And I wouldn't be surprised if her pulls through more. The little stinkers like to keep us on our toes. :) And we wouldn't have it any other way would we? :)

    Gentle pats and hugs to the old man. :)

  19. Jennifer, I'm so glad that Ren is home again. We can never keep them long enough. So sorry you & BG are going through this and I'll keep you all in my thoughts & prayers. Hugs

  20. I am so glad that Ren is home. Spoil him rotten! My thoughts are with you all.

    I love your projects! The colors are great.

  21. Oh boy, sweetie, sending hugs and wondering how Ren is doing today? Praying that all is well and covering you all in prayer :)

    Love ya
