Here is a picture of our dog, Scooter, a Fox Terrier. He is larger than any other fox terrier we have ever seen, but we love him just the same. He is a vigilant watchdog and no one moves anywhere around our house without us knowing all about it. He is fiercely protective of my son, Alex. And,as Alex is homebound, this gives me great peace of mind. I’ve often heard the quote about being half the person my dog thinks I am…and I really feel that way about him. He is always greeting me at the door and so excited to see me. I don’t get that from anyone else. If you have a dog…you know just what I mean. Scooter has been a gift from God to our family. He’s 10 years old now ,but still loves to play “pull the sock” with anyone so inclined. His other favorite game is “try to get this bone away from me.” But it’s no fun….he ALWAYS wins that one!
Pop went back to have a colonoscopy this week to see whether he was healed enough to have the colostomy repaired. Praise the Lord! Everything looks great! Now, Pop would have liked for them to go ahead and just wheel him into the OR right then. But the Dr.wants to give it a little more time. So, as of now, surgery is scheduled for March 27. If you talk to Pop, he can tell you exactly how many days, hours and minutes that is. God has walked with us through this whole episode and we will continue to let Him lead. Thanks be to God for his healing powers. Now, if Pop can just be patient…….
I am a Christian woman who has survived many years on the planet. God has blessed me with a wonderful family: husband, 3 sons, a dear DIL, and a precious grandson. I also have dear friends to keep me inspired. I am an artist of sorts and am finding my way through the great blessing of retirement. I recently retired after 20 years as a music teacher. Life is good!
