Paddy is home!

We have our Paddy home!!!  The Hospital said that his vomiting had stopped - and although the other end wasn't completely right - with a lot of TLC at home - he should make a full recovery. They ultra-sounded his pancreas and it was ok -  nothing out of the ordinary - so we are still not sure what started this all off.   He has to stay on a special diet for now - I am afraid it is no ice cream for Paddy!  So please eat some for him instead!

He is very tired and has been very sleepy - but he is on the couch having a snooze.

We are forever in awe of the power of the paw!  We have our boy back and we are thrilled.  We are going to let him gather his strength and then we will be back ... and blogging...


  1. What GREAT news!

    DWB needed this!

    Happy Nappy Paddy!


  2. Ah...how good it is to be home of the big old comfy couch.

    (very quietly) Welcome home Paddy. We hope you get some quality rest and come back to blogging soon.

  32. That's fantastic news. Well done little Paddy-Man!

  33. Oh Sally...we nurses have gone to Butchy and Snickers to help her out with those seizures...Asta and Agatha are RNs and Asta Down Under is too...Koobie and I are nursing students...if you peemail me at kreitm@gmail.com I can send you a pic of us helping Jackson last year after his surgery...we cook, wash sheets, make beds, fix SMOOTHIES, backrubs, bed baths,...anything needed for the sick pup...I always get in trouble cuz I um well SORTA FLIRT with my male patients, but Nurse Agatha is very strict and doesn't let me get away with anything.....oh and I drop bedpans when nervous...

    We will be over directly and can certainly help Paddy out with that bland diet...Scruffy, Archie and Stanley will come too to play poker with him...sorta a holistic healing approach. Scruffy always loses at poker so Paddy can certainly make some money!!

    We will need some supplies...

    Hot water bottles, a dead chicken for the soup, (preferably plucked..)oh...if ya can't find a dead chicken, a live one works...we can just use him to play poker with 'stead of eating him...usually they lose like Scruffy), a lot of ice for my blender for nootritious smoothies...some additives for the blender for the nurses when they are off duty, a deck of cards and Dogopoly for Paddy for when he's bored...

    Never fear...the nurses are coming!!!!!

    Love and kisses..


  34. We are so glad he is feeling better!
