What in the world does that title mean? Well, it means that things are going pretty well here!
Steve ate, showered dress and is off to the church to make up for all the time he lost due to lying in bed moanin' and groanin'. (And sprinting back and forth to the bathroom.) He's still eating very carefully so as not to upset the delicate balance of recovery but all in all, he's doing well.
So that's the first well in the "well, well, well."
Even though Snowy did throw up the lovingly prepared chicken and rice I made for him last night, today he ate fairly well (a bit more chicken and rice) and has actually drunk about half the water in his bowl! He's still not real energetic but seems to have a little more of a sparkle in his eyes than he’s had for the past few days.
I'm hoping that he's turned a corner. If he'll just keep eating and drinking (and keeping it down), I'll be one happy doggy mama. (Of course, eating and drinking won’t magically dissolve his kidney stones that are continuing to grow but at least the momentary crisis seems to have passed.)
That's our second well.
I know that some of you were concerned yesterday when I wrote that Sarah wasn't feeling well and that I had e-mailed her oncologist. Let me just reassure you that the symptoms she was exhibiting were more connected with possible late effects worries rather than relapse worries.
I so appreciate your prayers and concern for her.
And that was the third well in our "Well, well, well" line up.

I actually got up the nerve last night to hit the "buy" button on the computer and finalize my camera purchase. (Nikon D5000). That's a scary, fun, fulfilling, intimidating, exciting, amazing thing to do! It should be delivered between the 22nd and the 24th. Hooray!
We’re having our Christmas program (actually called, “Smitty’s Christmas Variety Show”) tomorrow night at church and Monday morning Nathan is flying in. Our tree is not up and cards aren’t sent and gifts aren’t wrapped so I guess I’d better transform myself into Busy Becky Mode rather than Blogging Becky Mode.
(Much to Snowy’s chagrin. He much prefers my Blogging Becky Mode because it gives him someone to hang out with while he snoozes.)
