Prayers for Grandpa

I haven't blogged for a while because my paws are being used for more important purposes - that of holding them together in prayer for my dear Grandpa - Mom's Dad who is very ill. He is 85 years old and last Thursday underwent triple bypass and valve replacement surgery. This is horrendous surgery at any age, but can you imagine at the age of 85 what a shock it must be to his body?

Mom tells me lots of stories about Grandpa and what a strong man he is mentally and physically even at his age. Grandpa is really responsible for my existence because it was he who fell for the wire fox terrier breed years ago and insisted on buying Mom her first wire when she was 12 and wanted a maltese poodle instead!

I miss Mom very much, she flew to South Africa to be with her family last Monday, 5 hours after getting the call that her Dad was so sick. I'm not sure when she will be back, but we are hoping this weekend or early next week. Mom doesn't want to leave until her Dad is conscious and on the road to recovery. Right now he is still ventilated and stable...

Please join me in praying for Grandpa's complete and rapid recovery!

Good Morning Axel:

We'll get the "AIREZEN" up and running - your Grampie needs us.....

We'll hold your Grampie and ALL your family tight in our prayers...

Please ask your Mom not to fret - fretting never fixes anything just makes Mom's more upset....

How brave your Grampie is.....

Lots of prayers and good thought for your mom and her family. And for you and your dad too, because we know you miss her.

Ciao bello Axel!

I am sending boatloads of Aire-Zen and keeping my paws crossed for your mama's sweet papa. La mia ragazza, whose papa had bypass surgery many years ago, says to tell your mama that she keeps your famiglia in her thoughts and prayers, and hopes all is well soon.

Tanti baci to you all!

All of us - four leggededs and two leggededs alike - are praying for your Grandpa and all of your family. We're hoping that he's improved some since this post... we're late in reading it.

We're glad your mum can be with her daddy - especially today, Father's Day. We know you miss her, but she's thinking of you and her heart feels good when she thinks of you and your antics at home.

She'll be happy to see you upon her return.

Sending our love and best wirey wishes,
Jake and Fergi
