Thanks to everyone for your support and kindness yesterday! I appreciated the comments and emails I got from everyone. You're all wonderful.
Bailey is home and doing fine (or as fine as can be expected after surgery). She's still a little wobbly, even this morning, VERY whiny (and she never whines normally) and absolutely parched. I assume the drugs gave her a bad case of dry mouth, because she drinks and drinks and drinks and then has to go outside every hour.
She looks lovely in her Lion King shirt -- a better alternative to the e-collar. Hopefully she won't worry the incision through the shirt so she won't have to wear the doggy lampshade.
No pathology reports for a week or more, though. So fingers crossed they got all the cancer -- considering the lump was roughly the size of a dime and the incision is about six inches long, I am hoping for the best.
I managed to write a bit yesterday -- despite the fact I had a whiny dog laying beside me. My mystery is moving along, though I don't imagine I'll actually market it as a mystery because the love story is definitely primary to the rest. I spoke to one of TWRP Crimson Rose (their mystery/suspense line) editors, and she said the story should be 40% mystery to qualify. I don't know that mine is... maybe more like 25 - 30%? I'm enjoying it,though. It's a challenge.
Based on Judy's review at LASR, I've started reading "Good Things" by Mia King. It's very well written, and the characterization is amazing, even though I'm only in the first chapter so far. Impressive. If the rest of the book is this good, I'll be thrilled.
After that, I think I'll have to read the paranormal Judy just reviewed -- she raved about it, said she couldn't put it down (figuratively, as it is an eBook). Check out her review here.
|You are Milk Chocolate|
A total dreamer, you spend most of your time with your head in the clouds.
You often think of the future, and you are always working toward your ideal life.
Also nostalgic, you rarely forget a meaningful moment... even those from long ago.
I'm okay with this, I suppose -- though I tend to think of myself as more practical than dreamy. And, milk chocolate is for wimps... the darker the better, IMHO.
|Your Animal Personality|
Your Power Animal: Eagle
Animal You Were in a Past Life: Whale
You are active, a challenger, and optimistic.
Hard-working, you are always working towards a set goal.
I'm not certain I'm in love with being a whale... but the rest? Yeah, that'll work.
Have a great day!
