Bless her, she's thro' the second op ....

Oh my goodness what sweet people I seem to have connected with on this blog - thank you for all the lovely notes of encouragement and prayers for TessieBear.
It seems that she had a golf ball lodged in her small intestine - this had perhaps been 48-72 hours ago - but it had done a lot of damage on its journey thro' her little system so when they performed the first operation anticipating one problem they discovered another and she had to undergo more surgery.
She is only a petite little thing but has been my husband's little 'angel' since the day she came to our home nearly three years ago and they have a particularly close bond - I always say they rescued one another - Sandy and TessieBear came to us thro' Labrador Lifeline Trust - a picture of her can be found in the Star Book post - Priceless Memories - please don't think she overshadows Sandy, but he is so just 'there' - steady, calm and dependable - I know there are lots of pet lovers out there who can relate, whether the pet is big or small they all have their own special qualities.
So now we play the waiting game and pray that she has the determination and strength to pull thro - we should hear more tomorrow - but we know we are far from out of the woods at this stage - but we are one small step closer. Believe me, to know that there are such kind people out there wishing her well is tremendously humbling and my close friends, for sending their love and prayers for Tessie, you know how precious you are to me and I am so grateful you are in my life.
I shall keep everyone posted on her progress and what I pray will be her road to recovery.
