according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or
slow to do the humble work.

I am the proud mom to 6 kids: Natasha, 24, Nikolai, 20, Reese, 20, Maylee, 14, Erik, 10 and Violet, 7. The kids come from Russia, Ukraine and China; I'm so proud of my family sometimes I think I'll burst and I needed an outlet for it - so I've created this weblog. :o)

Poor little Daisy. This morning, after a calm quiet night, I found her standing beside her little bed on the floor holding her leg up again. She was okay last night, and even trotted around the yard, acting so much happier! She even tried jumping up on our VERY high bed, but I was able to stop her. So this morning I was so surprised to see that her hip was out of joint again...!!

I took her to the vet at 8am, and he said her hip was fine - the joint was deep and it was okay - but her KNEE was dislocated again!! He said that her knee will continue to do this until we had it fixed, and the other knee is bad too, and will eventually need to be fixed; he suggested we have both knees done at the same time to prevent problems with the "good" knee down the road, to give her only one surgery procedure, reduce expenses, etc. So on Friday, payday, she will have both knees repaired. Poor baby!!

The surgery will cost almost as much as our mortgage payment, so please pray that we will be able to flex enough to pay the mortgage without being TOO late! This check was supposed to cover that expense. Ugh. And we still wait for the final big check from the insurance company. Oy!! When it rains, it pours!

So just to keep you updated. Thanks for the support!!
