AN UPDATE ...




Gratefully, today Mallory is stabilized. This does not mean to say that she is out of the woods because realistically, she is not. She has CRF (chronic renal failure; a benign tumor on her thyroid; is hypertensive and she is hyperthyroid.) We are choosing to enjoy each and every moment we have with her -- not with an eye on what was or what the future holds; but what is ... in this moment ... and this moment .. and this moment ...

Please know that I adore you all ... and, I will be in touch with everyone ... Thank you for sharing your lives, your joys and stories of all the wonderful fur children who stole your hearts, too ... That they live on in Mallory Ann has been the greatest gift and source of comfort of all!! Thank you again!!!

The following quote by Horace Kallen is a prescription for love .. joy ... peace...

"There are persons who shape their lives by the fear of death, and persons
who shape their lives by the joy of life. The former live dying; the latter
die living".
