Dear Friends,

So sorry that I have not been following all of you as much as I use to, I’ve been diagnosed with Graves Disease and it is taking me a bit longer than anticipated to get back to “normal”. Although normal for me would be an improvement :-).

Nellie & Calvert have been incredible therapy for me, if it were not for them my rehabilitation would be going much slower; I am truly blessed, they have been my guardian angels!

Sorry to hear about the illness, Claudia - but at least it is something the doctors can make better! Nothing like a few furry friends around to help, though! Hope you are back to 100% soon! And Nellie's eyebrows are great, they made mom giggle!!

Hi Claudia
There is a lady who we see taking her dogs who has this, she is doing very well on the medication and hope you soon are feeling much better.
In the meantime, those rascals will look after you. When hubby used to come home from hospital he always said the girls were the best medicine for him.
Take care, Lynne and the furries xx

Joy said...

I got a kick out of Nellie's thoughts, and yeah, Calvert is a stud muffin... looks just like my dear departed MAX, who, by the way, became a father of 8.

Joy said...

Oh, and please rest up and recover, Claudia.

JD and Max said...

Hi Claudia - please take care of yourself - schnauzer medication is the best we think! Don't worry about blogging - we'll all be here for you whenever you're around!

And - oh my! - but we both swooned at that first photo of Nellie! Wooo-woo - what a fine bootie you have there Nellie, we think we're in love!!

Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Shelley said...

Claudia - I hope you feel good soon - glad to hear you have your angels Nellie & Calvert! I hope they give you tons of smooches, cuddles and share their treats w/ you! Scout sends her best tail wags!!

Julia said...

Oh, Claudia - hope you feel better soon. Schnauzers are the best therapy dogs, ever! I know. I deal with autoimmune disease and I don't know what I would do without Maggie and Lulu and Sam.

Sasha said...

Hi Claudia

You can't fail to get well with quality Schnauzer care like that!

It looks like you are in good paws - and good booties!

Puppy kisses

Joy said...

How are you doing, Claudia? Just checking to see if Nellie and Calvert were able to 'enjoy' (?) your recent snowstorm...

Cobi said...

Hi Claudia,

So sorry to heard that you are not well. Hope you are better now.

Nellie and Calvert will take good care of you :)

We will be praying for your speedy recovery


Deborah said...

Oh, I'm sorry about your Graves disease. When I was in Mass Eye & Ear this past week, they have a support group for Graves disease patients. Maybe you can find a support group where you live.
I hope you feel better soon. My very good girl friend has Graves and she is doing fine now!

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull, Some have weird names , and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.............................................

Oskar said...

My mom person and I hope you are feeling better. Schnauzers are the best medicine!

Oskar said...

Oh Claudia, we are so sorry to hear about your problem. We are sending healing vibes your way.

My mom person knows from personal experience how healing the love of a schnauzer can be.
