A blog post I saw the other day, sorry can’t recall which one it was, showed a picture of their dog sleeping on it’s back. I commented that I had seen Tippy lay that way, but never sleep. Well, I looked in the bedroom this morning and saw this:

Ahhhh! Let sleeping dogs lie.

I guess I was wrong. 🙂


I’ve been away for a while. No real reason. Just life in general. I keep thinking that I will post more, as Tippy always seems to be doing something you might be interested in, but then time gets away from me and it just doesn’t get done. I am in awe of all of you that manage to blog every day.

Anyway, I do have some news that I wanted to share. I have had an aortic root aneurysm for three years. The doctors were watching it, and it was stable – not growing. My last CT scan showed that it has grown to the point that it will require surgical repair. In preparation for the surgery, I had to have a heart catheterization last Monday. They said my heart was strong and no blockages, so surgery can be scheduled. They have not set the date yet.

I have been following doctor’s orders and resting, no heavy lifting, etc. Tippy is a great help at that.

I like this show mom. Can we skip the commercials though?

For now, I am just waiting and trying to get some things done in preparation for being laid up for a couple of months. I have made arrangements for my dog behaviorist to keep Tippy while I am in the hospital and for at least a week after I get out. I will really miss her, but feel it is the best for both of us.

I will try, once again, to share more. They do say that you only fail when you quit trying. So, I’m not a blogging failure, yet. 😉
