May is Big On Birthdays

Today, before I begin, I want to ask for prayers for my sweet Suzi again.  I asked the Vet today to do her blood work a week earlier than planned to check her Kidney function.  They were very elevated 3 weeks ago and she's been going in 3 times a week for fluid under the skin.  Thing is, I think her problem is in her mouth with a couple of bad teeth.  She isn't vomiting or throwing up (as expected with the high BUN and Creatinine numbers.  However, she looks like she hurts when she does try to eat.  She wants to eat, she comes out "asking" for breakfast and snacks, but even when I liquify it to make it easier, she only eats a little.  Sometimes more than others, but not enough for me to be happy.  
I'm praying for good blood results and a way to make her mouth less painful so she can eat.  I love that little girl so much.  She just turned 11.

Thank you!

May is a very busy month around here and at our office.  May 14, 19, 20, 21, 24 and 25 are all office birthdays, with mine at the very end.  This card is for the gal who had a birthday on Saturday the 20th.  I should have given it to her Friday, but I didn't make it to work that day because of a plumbing issue in our main bathroom, so she received it on Monday.

Watermelon Wonder - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Succulent Garden DSP - 5 1/4" x 4"
Whisper White and Watermelon Wonder - actually just used some leftover paper and stamped the sentiment then trimmed around it.  Making the Watermelon Wonder 1/4" bigger all around.

I really like the Faceted Gems here on the bottom.  These are Silver, but there are also Gold ones and they are beautiful too.

Thank you for looking in today.  Have a Happy Day!

  1. I truly understand the power of love for a pet so a prayer was just lifted up to you and Suzi!

    1. Linda, thank you so much! God bless you!

  2. Yep, more prayers, cyber hugs, and well wishes heading to you and your family as well as the vet! She looks pretty with her stripes on her tail and legs.

    Fun card so bright and festive. I just found some more of the WATERMELON WONDER cardstock so I just might have to case this!

    I hope you plumbing was repaired easily and not very costly let alone inconvenient! We did the plumbing thing last year.
