I always love decorating blogs, and my dear friend Stephanie has no objections when it comes to me decorating her personal blog and My Little Bit of Whimsy blog. She really loved the latest logo I had created for her..but I just found something was missing.

A week or so ago Stephanie created this amazing bird out of Clay and I loved it...

I thought mmm.. what if my best digi gal Libby could create something digital for me to create a new banner... I didn't tell Stephanie but I did tease her a bit about something new and fun coming to her soon... Libby finished this little creature last Sunday for us and I immediately started playing with MLBOW new logo. I like... what do you think? CLICK HERE TO VISIT MLBOW

Scrap de Marilou

I was lucky enough to create a new blog for Marielle yesterday. She already had a blog but wanted to change the name of it to reflect more of her personal style. This new blog is called
Le Scrap de Marilou

Would you believe I worked with her mother about 20 years ago.... ? Her mother and I were tourist counsellors and I used to visit her and have tea .... and she'd always talk about her kids in such a loving way and one of her daughters was Marielle!!!! Imagine... what a small world ;-)

Marielle it was a pleasure working and creating for you .. I am glad you love your new blog ;-)

I want to say THANK YOU to all my blog readers and facebook friends who have left comments and emails for me in regards to Eddie. Some of you made me laugh and others made me cry... but they were all great messages.It was a rough Friday and Saturday but I am slowly coming to the realization that Eddie needs our help to survive and with lots of LOVE he'll be just fine. He's doing very well and I can tell he's feeling better. He's following us everywhere in the house and loves his butt spanked ;-)

I managed to give him an insulin shot last night and was pretty proud of myself. Something I have to do again tonight and get to use it alone. He's adapting to his new food well and eating quite well. All positives so far >"<>

No Title...

I have no title for this post, I just feel an urge to blog tonight.

I am sad... so sad.
I should be so happy and really grateful of some news but I think I am having a hard time understanding, and accepting.

If any of you know me personally, you know how much I LOVE our kitty Eddie. He's been part of our family for the past 10 years... since November 2000 at the age of 8 weeks he's been part of our family. Just recently he started feeling ill. We noticed that he was going to the washroom sooo much more and we were changing his litter box every day which is really abnormal for him, he is also drinking so much water and I put his color on him the other day and noticed he had lost a bit of weight. I dont like seeing him ill and on Thursday we brought him to the Vet.

Dr. B is so nice and easy to talk to... and instantly knew that Eddie had issues. In Oct 2009 he weighed over 16 pounds, and tonight he was 11pounds. They took some blood tests, and a urine sample to be analyzed and told us they would call us in the morning.
That was a long night....

Friday morning at about 11am Dr.B called us to let us know Eddie had diabetes.

In a way I was relieved that he is going to be okay.... that it wasn't Cancer, or FIP which our last kitties died of.

I feel --- sad, emotional, scared, overwhelmed, terrified, sometimes all at once. I've cried so much in the past 24 hours I think my eyeballs are gonna fall out. I know so many cats live great happy, healthy lives with this illness and I am hoping that Eddie is with us for a long time. I am really not ready to let him go nor will I ever be.

Eddie is now on a diabetic diet - which is no treats, and no mush mush. We give him mush mush on Wednesday and Sundays - he loves his Fancy Feast Salmon ;-) ... so we have to cut that out to a teaspoon on these days and had to eliminate his treats. This magical food they gave us ( 35$ a bag ) is actually pretty good... as per Eddie. We have some in a " treat " bag and give it to him after his insulin ... as a good reward.. but he doesn't know it's really his "real food " so that's a plus. He is slowly in transition from his old Purina One food to this special food. He'll be on this 100% by next Wednesday..

he's on insulin 2x per day... something i haven't had the nerves to try yet. Steve has been the one doing the needles, i just rub Eddie for support ... like he needs it.. I think I need it.

well... that's my No Title post for today.

I know things will be better and we'll be fine... but right now this SUCKS!

This message that the universe is sending me... I haven't figured it out yet but I am sure someday I will.
