Thankful Thursday

I am thankful the Shark is home. And that she always makes sure I have a Thankful logo to use. Like this one. Even if I don't see it until I use another one. And that she knows despite that, I still love her. The Shark is home. With all her wit, sarcasm, daily calls and texts, and overall humorous sunshine.

I am thankful for Google searches. Kasey was diagnosed yesterday with a Mast Cell Tumor. There is an off chance that it is just a bite that he had some weird reaction too, but that is not the vet's thinking. He was very clear with us and left us with some instructions to watch it for a couple of days, and then to have surgery to remove it, stage it and give us a prognosis. I immediately came home and googled. Everything I found concurred with what the vet said. We got a little more insight as to his particular tumor based on what it looks like and the fact that there is now another one. We got some very informative data about staging and prognosis, so that when the time comes we can make some well researched decisions.

On that note, I am thankful for Kim at Abraxas Pet Resort groomery who told me to get him checked immediately. If she hadn't I would have ignored it. Plus she is an awesome dog groomer. My canines are always happy to see her!

I am thankful for our great vet, Dr Gillespie at Jordan River Animal hospital. He has been with us since our last golden that we had to put down, the puppies, and our current four legged family members. He is smart, sensitive and understanding. I also like that he doesn't try to guilt me into a bunch of testing or procedures that may not be necessary.

I am thankful for Google Translator. I have some women from Chile, that are FB'ing me and emailing me, but they don't speak or write English and I don't speak or write Spanish, but we can now still communicate by a simple copy and paste and translate action. LOVE IT!

I am thankful for Mama's in Chile who look out for and love my son.

Anything in particular you are thankful for today? Look hard, you'll find something.....

Your dogs like the groomers?! Really? Cause I am prettttttty sure Casey was FLIPPING out when I was on the phone with you and you were pulling up. Perhaps those were yips of joy and not fear like I had initially thought.

And I am glad to be back.

And glad to know that my logos are on your second string list.
