I think it's time to do a new update. Dad has successfully had his right kidney removed and the mass was cancerous, but it was all contained within the kidney. They are cautiously optimistic that they got it all. He will have follow ups every 6 months with labs and a chest x-ray, so we pray that it was all removed. Grandma is doing well from her pacemaker surgery and back to doing everything as usual. My other grandma is having pain issues and it sounds like it is more arthritis type, but she is under a doctor's care at this time. Her hearing has not improved much either since her 2 ear surgeries. My grandpa has been diagnosed with glaucoma in the right eye, which is the eye that is bleeding and he has been receiving shots in. He is scheduled for another shot this coming Wednesday. As for mom and I, mom hit her head last Sunday while house cleaning and had a bad headache, but it's getting better now. Me, on the other hand, am not doing very well. My allergies of course of flaring, but I have developed a disk problem. My rear legs don't work very well so I stagger when I walk, until I get my footing. Then I walk a little better. I'm under chiropractic care, had one treatment already, another one set for Monday. We hope it helps. I'm to stay quiet, no running, no walks, no stairs, no car rides-nothing but rest. It's nice this weekend and mom was going to do outside work, but I have to stay inside. What a bummer. So mom isn't sure if she wants to leave me inside to my own devices, because then I will scratch at my itchies and my vet told me not to do that either! What's a girl to do? I guess that about brings everyone up to date. Have a great weekend. Love & Shepherd hugs, Contessa
