My Dilemma

Hi all my lovely lady blogger friends thank you for all your kind messages about Digger on my previous post which has now been deleted as it upset me too much every time l logged in,the vet phoned me up on Tuesday to tell me the results of the biopsy and she said it was not good news the cancer was of a very invasive nature and it would be wise to have him put to sleep sooner rather than later ,after much soul searching and crying l phoned a pet crematorium and arranged it for Friday as long as l could get an appointment at the vets so l got my son to phone the vets and discuss it and we where then told he has got 100 to 300 days depending on how well he is coping before doing anything further so with this happy reprieve we took him on Friday to have his stitches out and then they said to bring him back in a month to discuss further treatment and he doesn't need painkillers just yet well l don't know whether l am on my head or my feet l don't know what else to do or say it is such a dilemma we may have to change our vets so that is my update on Digger. Well trying change the the subject and to be on a happier note we went Scarborurgh again yesterday with two of my sons and their family,s we had a wonderful time the weather was great a bit blowy but the sun was warm these are some of photos of Jessica's birthday last week the weather was very hot we had a picnic on the beach we built sandcastles went on a pirate ship Jessica had a donkey ride then we had a fish and chip supper before going home ,a great day was had by all and some of yesterdays photos. I do not know who had the most fun the adults building sandcastles or grandad writing love messages in the sand. There was a horse and buggy and these lovely coloured beach huts.JOSHUA Two proud dads enjoying a moment with their little onesTwo little ones playing. We are off on our holidays next week to Suffolk and boy l cant wait to have a break from the norm, so l have started to pack cleaned the inside of the car as it was in a bit of a state hubby doesn't do the inside very well and as l used to work valeting cars he knows l will do a better job than him? hmmm a method in his madness l hear you say oh yes quite right. I have not done much sewing this week but l will show you some car boot finds soon That's all for now as l wasn't going to blog because its not very good news but l thought the longer l leave it the harder it will be and l feel better now l have spoken about it sorry if its a bit mish mash but that's how l am feeling at the moment so on that note l hope every one has a wonderful week lots of hugs Pat

I have enjoyed looking at all your family photo's , you look like a very happy family. best wishes Julie.C

Sorry to hear about Digger, I know just how you're feeling. I wander around the house lost, it feels so empty.

The Scarborough photos are lovely, looks like a gorgeous day out.

love and blessings

Hi Pat!

Bless your heart! I am sorry to hear about your struggle! I still mourn for a dog that died when I was 12 years old; I know it is hard to let them go.

You have such a rich family life! The woman is the heart of the home, so you must be a very special lady to have raised such a caring and close family!

Come see some blocks I made; they turned out cute!

Have a nice vacation.

Hi Pat,
Sorry to hear about Digger, I bet he was glad to get home to you and the family. Sending all my love & luck to you all xx
You all look as though you had a lovely time at Scarborough! I love Scarborough, and the surrounding area, there is so much to do, for me, and the children.Last year we stayed at Cayton Bay, and visited Robin Hood's Bay, Whitby, Pickering, and York. I just wish I lived nearer.
Sorry I havent replied earlier, but I am at Dave's house at present, and am using his PC. for some unknown reason BLOGGER wont let me access quite a few blogs, and yours is one of them, using my PC.
i'll have to ask about this problem in my next post, as its very annoying!!
Take care

Hello Pat,

Thought I'd popo by & say hello - saddened to hear about Digger, pets really do become part of the family. I loved the pictures of your family on the beach, delightful. Hope you had a good week away, and that life is treating you well.

Love Lydia xx
