What a day!
I was so worried about Schmitzy today when I saw blood oozing out of his wound. I called the vet's office to speak to the vet tech that worked with us on Saturday but she was off. They offered me an appt. so I took it. Of course, after I got there and the vet saw him, he said this was normal and that he had made more progress than he had expected since Saturday. What a big relief! We aren't out of the woods yet. He will have surgery next Tuesday and again at a later date. This wound is like treating a very bad burn. He can still become septic, at which point his chances for survival drop significantly. But for now, I am optimistic and hopeful that this guy is a survivor. I just came home from agility with Geena Bea and he greeted me like he hadn't seen me in a week, even though I have to treat his wound 5 times a day. What love, we should all be so forgiving.
So, today I have a Get Well Card.
It's not for Schmitzy, but perhaps it should be!
The sketch is from Sketch Saturday, isn't it a great sketch? The DP is Echo Park Springtime and the stamp is Sick Lily from Pink Cat Studio. I paper-pieced everything except her face and feet! I used Marvelous Squares from Spellbinders, which is a lovely die set. The rick rack die is from Papertrey and I punched out the sick kitty, colored with Copics. I stamped the sentiment with Memento.
I am also entering the following challenges:
