Hello Everyone,

First, I would like to thank each and everyone of you for your kind words, thoughts, and prayers for our Rolo. Not only has this been difficult for us, but our boy is not feeling well at all.

So the update...

After taking him to the vet on Monday, he had a set of x-rays which confirmed that he has an enlarged heart with fluid surrounding it and some fluid entering his lungs. Basically we caught him in the very early stages of Congestive Heart Failure. But with the medicines the vet gave us, we are hopeful that the fluids will drain and he will begin to perk up again.

The vet was pleased that we caught it when we did. Rolo still has his appetite, which is a good thing. However, he has been not moving around too much. Rolo has been hiding out in the basement and his brother Pavi spent the day down there with him. I think he knows that Rolo isn't feeling well. Rolo is only making the trip up the stairs about twice per day as his legs are quite swollen.

Thank you again for all your kind words. Please keep those good thoughts and prayers coming.

Tomorrow, I will definitely have a quilt related post!!

Until Next Time...
