Back in May, my dog Mimi perforated one of her eyes. I brought her to the vet and treated her for over a week for inflammation, infection, etc. After a check up, he said that her eye would need to be removed but that it would be done when he returned from holidays. Well, this morning I brought her back to him and he said that her eye had healed so well that some of her vision had returned and that he was not going to remove the eye. He said that she was in the lucky 10% of dogs with this condition who do not have to have the eye removed.
Needless to say, we are all relieved at home.

Just wanted to share the following with you all. Enjoy!
"Let's just walk up the hill to the terminal, rather than wait for the bus," I suggested to my two young sons. Much to their displeasure, we began our walk. After a while, my seven-year-old son asked: "Mom, why do you always make the decisions?" "Because I'm the adult," I said. "When you become an adult, you'll make the decisions." He thought for a few seconds, then said: "No, I won't. Then I'll have a wife."
Tara, my 13-year-old daughter, was filling out a form at the doctor's office and turned to me to ask about one of the questions. "I know that M is for married, S is for single and D is for divorced," Tara said. "But what's W for? Waiting?"
Last year, my nine-year-old daughter flew first class to Los Angeles, won second prize in a national dance competition, spent the Fourth of July on the Queen Mary, swam in the Pacific Ocean, toured Hollywood and enjoyed all the rides at Universal Studio.
Then, at the beginning of the school year, when her teacher asked her to draw her favourite summer memory, Robin drew a picture of herself on our backyard swing, eating a chocolate bar.
(Man, you can't please them all!!! She should just have stayed home.)
At the beginning of the school year, I mentioned to a Grade 1 student that he'd grown a lot since I'd seen him the year before. "I've been doing a lot of that, growing and shrinking." Puzzled, I asked what he meant. "Well, I used to be up to my big brother's nose," he replied, "but now I'm only up to his chin."

Yesterday, when speaking with my daughter, I found out that my 12 year old grand-daughter was forcibly taken off a Montreal bus by the police. Knowing my grand-daughter, she personifies an angel-like appearance, well the personnification is a reality! She is well brought up and would never answer back and I'm not saying that because she's my family. For your information, my grand-daughter did speak to the driver in French because she has been to French schools all her life until she reached her last year of primary school. She was moved to the English system because this is her primary language and does not search for words as she would in French. Read on if you so wish:

Yes, you have heard this from me before. I really want to get the extra weight off my body. Now, it has been since October 2010 that I have been this weight (and even gained a couple of pounds) and it is time for me to do something about it.
Since I am Hypothyroid, Coach Nancy recommends that we eat as if we had Type 2 Diabetes. I do believe that this would work for me as the amount of carbohydrates is much less than what is recommended. However, what I need to do is endeavor to eat a bit more proteins, count down substantially on the carbs, and watch my exercise level (which is quite good). During the night, I decided that I will try this way of eating (I never say 'diet') for a while and see what happens. So far today, I have stayed within my calorie range but the proteins have not been met.
Wish me luck! It is NOT how my family eats so I will need to modify things for me.
