Hi everyone!

I just wanted to give everyone an update.

As some of you know I had a Hysterectomy Monday, April 6th . . . I have found out I LOVE DRUGS!!!! I'm home now but per the Dr. request I cannot go up and down steps for 3-4 day . . . so I will not be creating this week. I had requested my wonderful Dr. Veligati to save my ovaries BUT she couldn't so I'm into a full-blown menopause, and wearing an estrogen patch. I'm under a 6-week recovery and will take things very slowly . . . my wonderful husband Gan will be helping out and so will my daughter Annie sooo I'm under great care!

Have a wonderful Easter!!!

P.S. Thank you everyone who sent us email about the passing of our wonderful dog Lucy...we really miss her!

The passing of our 13 year old dog Lucy 1996- March 31, 2009

If It Should Be

If it should be I grow frail and weak
And pain prevents my peaceful sleep,
Then you must do what must be done
When this last battle can't be won.

You will be sad, I understand.
Selfishness might stay your hand.
But on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship take the test.

We've had so many happy years
That what's to come can hold no fears.
You'd not want me to suffer. So,
When the time comes, please let me go.

Take me where my needs they'll tend.
Only -- stay with me until the end.
Hold me firm and speak to me.
Until my eyes no longer see.

I know, in time, you too, will see
It is a kindness that you do for me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I've been saved.

Do not grieve it should be you
Who must decide this thing to do.
We've been so close, we two, these years......
Don't let your heart hold any tears.
