Just as I was leaving for church at 1:00 the vet called. He can see spots on Telly’s liver which are likely cancerous. He can’t say for sure unless he does a biopsy and I won’t allow her to have surgery. He sent her home with medicine for nausea and something for liver function – gonna look that up online.
This afternoon I gave a talk to our Women’s Fellowship group and guests about Quilts and the Bible. I have had this afternoon on my calendar since last August and have done lots of research and have sewed assorted blocks that I gave away – I forgot to even take a picture of them!!!!
The quilt behind me is Jan Patek’s Bible Quilt that I have had hanging in my house for years – one of my all time favorites!
It was “hat day” and everyone was supposed to wear a hat. My hat belonged to Governor Hammill from our neighboring town of Britt, Iowa. Many years ago my friend Darlene and I went to his estate sale and I bought the beautiful hat box and his hat was still in it. He was Governor of Iowa in the mid 1920’s and the price on the hat box is $10.00.
All I could think about during this talk was Telly. When I got home she was here, acting very normal and I had already cooked chicken and rice for Siri. The vet said Telly didn’t eat but she ate two bowls of chicken and rice for me! Yay!!!! We’ll just love her as long as we have her and we will not let her hang on and suffer because it might be easier for us – I hate when pet owners do that. It’s such a coward’s way out and the pet suffers.
So my day has been hectic and I am looking forward to a beer!
