Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this early Christmas present! Around 9 years ago I woke up by myself Christmas morning with not a single gift under the tree, completely alone. My marriage had come to a end and my son Noah was not with me… I’ll never forget that Christmas. At the time it was extremely painful. I mean I was in bad shape…But There is only one place to go from the bottom! And that’s UP!! We must always push forward! Keep moving and always keep our minds busy. If I can do it ANYONE can do it!! Go get what you want. I love you so much. Thank you for supporting my family and myself. You are one of a kind 🙂 Smile More. Thank you so much ????

just paid a visit to this cutie at the hospital. he was trying to bite the catheter off of his leg so he can come home with me. i told him i’ll be back to get him very very soon. thank you all for your positive vibes and prayers. his kidneys are failing and unfortunately nothing can be done to restore them BUT his levels are going down. meaning we can get him to a point where we can stabilize his condition and allow him to live with his condition. it’s just going to require a lot of effort and love. when he comes home i’ll be taking him to the vet EVERY morning to have water injected under his skin to keep him hydrated. he will also have to be put on a new diet for kidney treatment and be on a ton of medication. with love and support i know he can get back to feeling better. my main concern right now is his weight. his spine is showing and his stomach is smaller than ever. but he got this. he’s a fighter. the dollar to my dream. ❤️????
