I have been sick in and out of hospital since January. Seems that I contacted some kind of bateria in the bloodstream. I am hooked up to IV antibotics 27/7 until another 4 weeks. So poor little Rosie was neglected and looked terrible and smelled like a dog. I had her taken to a groomer this week and she got bathed, brushed, sanitary, etc. The outer long hair is beginning to get ahead of the undercoat (which is curly and grey). The big black and white dog is her brother Buck. He loves her so and Jethro also.

So sorry, Lucile, to hear about your troubles. Hope everything goes well for you soon. The dogs, however, are looking good. It must be such a relief for you that Rosie is all fresh and sweet smelling again. She looks beautiful. Love the big guy too.
Take care and feel better. The dogs will be okay.

Aww...she looks wonderful ...Buck has such a wonderful and gentle expression on his face. Great picture of the 2 of them. I know what it's like to be on iv antibiotics. I have had 2 picc lines in and 6 weeks worth of antibiotics since December for a lung infection. Thank goodness I am able to do them myself at home. Hope you are feeling better soon hon!

Lucile, I am so sorry to hear you have been so ill. I had been thinking we hadn't heard much from you. Hope you are soon feeling well and able to enjoy spring weather. Your fur kids look great and it sound like Buck has fit in with everyone very well.

Love the updated picture! Hope you are feeling better soon! At least you are not in the hospital, being home is the best way to get better. Dexter is now in a short cut too.

Whimsey, I have what is called Hickman central lines, two of them. They tried the regular Picc, but couldn't because of the blockage from my heart surgery, so had to go in from the groin up to the heart. But the good news was that the infection had not got in the valve, which it normally would have. Home health comes twice a week to draw blood for cultures and once a week to change dressing. I am doing the antibotics myself. Rosie is such a lamb that she would never scratch me or pull on the iv lines, but I have to stay away from Buck, he is still such a puppy and Jethro is staying outside most of the time also. I am afraid that he will catch the iv line.
