A Few Of My New Designs

Sorry I haven't been around for a while. Things have been rather hectic lately. My daughter Amanda has been ill with Kidney Stones, very painful and our African Leopard Tortoise Timmy has been seriously ill with a blood condition, "Septicemia". We have no idea how he got it, vet thinks from a small cut to his leg that wasn't noticed. He hasn't eaten for 18 days, is being fed with a Critical Care formula via a tube in his neck. He is a very sick little boy but is showing signs of improvement thankfully. He is now more alert and has put weight on and is no longer dehydrated. He is on loads of medication and back and fore to the vets. He is not out of danger yet but it is looking very promising now. We were staying at our caravan when he was taken ill so we are still there with him, close to the vet that is treating him so my internet has been very limited lately. I have a Vodafone mobile dongle but it is soooo painfully slow that I cannot bear to try it too often as it gets me really irritable.

Casper our Chocolate Labrador who has Hip Dysplasia is back to the vets for his second knee operation on Monday. This has been delayed due to my daughter being ill and also Timmy but he is doing great and the other knee has healed up wonderful. There has been a delay in my taking his breeders to court with all that has been going on but I have an appointment to get the ball rolling for as soon as we get back from the caravan. That is something that I MUST get on with!

Unable to upload pics of my new designs at mo, will try again later
