About Grandma

I have recently asked you to keep my grandma in your thoughts and prayers but wasn't able to really disclose much information because we weren't sure what was going on with her. We know some information now and I wanted to update you so you could continue to send her some paw power.

Grandma had a bone marrow biopsy a couple of weeks ago and we found out earlier this week that she has Chronic Leukemia. We learned that Leukemia can be a side effect of chemotherapy but it usually takes a few years for it to develop. Since Grandma finished her chemo treatments in April the doctors think maybe she had this as an underlying condition and the chemo treatments brought it to the surface. We don't really know much about the disease yet but Grandma is scheduled to see a specialist this week.

One of my favorite Grandma and me photos:

Thanks so much for all your support for Grandma and please continue keeping those paws crossed for her!

Please be patient with me as I have not been visiting blogs much at all the past few weeks.  I hope once the Holidays are over and Mom isn't so stressed out about things I can get back to visiting more regularly.

You are all in our thoughts. Our mom has a very good friend who kicked that leukemia monster's behind! Lots of doggie snuggles were definitely part of her recovery protocol. It looks like you've got that part covered, Twix.

Hi Twix,
We just love that pic of you and your Grandma - we can see how much you love each other.
We continue to send positive thoughts your way - your Grandma is amazing to have come through all her treatment.
We do hope the leukemia can be managed with medication - she so deserves a respite from it all.
We wish you and your family the very best Xmas.
Take care of one another
Much love
