Update on Auntie Dot

I talked to my cousin Heather a little while ago and learned that Dot is now out of danger.  She was in surgery for a while yesterday, then in recovery… she didn’t get to a room until well after visiting hours were over, so Heather saw her this morning.

She’s got a rough road ahead, but she’s a tough cookie like all the women in my family.  She’ll be in the hospital for at least a week while her incision heals and she starts getting her strength back.   Somehow her bowel got twisted around itself and the doctors really don’t know why that happened.  She doesn’t contort her body like I do 🙂 so it must have been some sort of anomoly… although one of her doctors speculated that a prior surgery could have been the culprit.  They’re going to look into that, but meanwhile we’re just going to concentrate on getting her well.


  1. Hurray for auntie Dot.

    It sounds like she has guts. Let’s hope she can keep them kink free.

  2. Hehehe! Good one.

    Dot is doing MUCH better and leaving the hospital either today or tomorrow. She’s going to stay with Heather, Ro Ro, and Sophie for awhile. Yay! I am so happy she is doing well.

  3. Hey, my friend who lives in Phoenix, over by Scottsdale, has two bichon frisse (sp?) named Sophie and Cisco. Very very cute.


  4. …uh, probably not for Scottsdale. 😛

    Hee hee hee!
