Glad that Penny is eating a little, we're thinking of her and praying for her!

I had to laugh when you said Penny sat in your lap on the way home. Harley likes to sit in my lap every morning after he eats his breakfast. I don't think he realizes how big he is.

I am away from computer a lot these days, but sweet Penny is never away from my thoughts and prayers. I am glad last reports are good and love those sweet pictures of girls. Hugs.

I was talking with someone today whose husband had mouth cancer. They had to remove part of his jaw and he went through over 50 radiation treatments. I hesitantly told her about Penny (since I'd just met her, I didn't want her to think I was too strange ).

She told me that for her, what she learned most from while waiting during the treatment and during the "down time" of recovery was to enjoy quiet time to herself. I hope you find quiet moments to keep your spirit and energy renewed too

Wow, 50 radiation treatments!!! That is a lot! She and her husband must be very strong. Her advice is wonderful. I will try and make sure I get my "down time". Thank you for thinking of us!

I am re-training Penny to swallow solid food. I am giving her small pieces of chicken and then pushing them to the tip of her throat with my finger and give her water. She then swallows the chicken, which she does not do without my help. She is more of a shark while eating, and is eating wet food on her own now. We still are syringe feeding her daily, because she still isn't drinking on her own. I am hoping that it may have to do with the swallowing. I sleep on the couch (because she is now sleeping downstairs), and she wakes me up in the morning nose into my face! Every day more of my Penny is coming back. She has maintained her weight, but hasn't gain or lost any.

Thank you for thinking of Penny. How is Thunder doing?

Lauren; I am happy to hear that Penny can eat. You are one of the BEST MOMS!! I slept downstairs with Smooch, too!
