I am overwhelmed with the amount of love that Shorty and I have felt in the past few days. I know this is a tough time for most of us right now, so I was blown away by the amount of people who have donated for Shorty's hip surgery. Since I posted on Friday, I have received over $400 in donations!
For those of you who donated, and you know who you are:
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
It means so much to me that I have friends who are willing to lend a hand (or give some money) when I am in need. My heart is overflowing with joy.
And for everyone else, thank you so much for your words of encouragement. And telling me that you wanted to kick some trucker ass as well! You are all so wonderful and I hope that I can be as supportive of you as you have been of me.
If you want to donate, there is still time. Go here.
Shorty's hip surgery went amazingly well and he is being such a trooper! We picked him up from the vets on Saturday morning. He slept off the drugs until the afternoon, and then when we let him outside in the evening he was just as he was before the surgery: happy, excited, loving and playful. He is such a toughy I don't even think he noticed that his hip was sewn back together. He has a long recovery ahead of him but considering what he has lived through so far, I am sure the recovery will be a breeze for him.
