Steve - all of us on SM miss Donna so much. She was very special to us all. Please know our thoughts are with you and that we're happy that Oliver is being taken care of. You were so lucky to have Donna and Oliver in your life and we know that you know it.
Donna was taken to Heaven on March 10, 2014. No more pain, chemo, or trouble breathing - she is with Jesus now. Ollie is living with Donna's niece Kim with 2 other small dogs to play with, and getting spoiled as much as ever. I am trying to adjust to the new "normal" with her missing - not easy. I miss her SO MUCH !! Steve
Donna, I am sorry your are having to go through all of that. I had to have a colonoscopy because I turned 50 and was seeing red blood too. I had to have some polps removed and what was causing the bleeding is hemmoroids. I hope it is just that. **** I am still bleeding -they told me manage it change in diet and suppositories or have surgery. Yuck.
I wish we were closer to each other! I know what you mean about not wanting another dog. After years of having one dog at a time, I didn't think we'd ever have two at at time. But now that we do, it is almost easier - really! A built in playmate and no guilt when you leave the house with out them! Every time I watch them interact I say a silent "I'm sorry" to Alvin for not getting him a friend.
