Latest NEWS FLASH...
A Dear, blogger Friend sent me the following Emergency Medical Services update this morning.
It brings me hope...
**EMS** has introduced trained service dogs to help cut costs.*
*Canines have been used for police work, search & rescue, tracking, service dogs, and a variety of other tasks.*
*Now they're assisting EMS and doing so at a much lower cost.*
*See the example below...*

EMS service dog at work:
*Breathe, damn you, breathe!*
I have no idea where Tammy got this, so I am unable to give credit to it's author but it had me rolling on the floor and wiping tears from my eyes.
I must say, Sable's been doing her best to help me in my recovery. Although I don't always appreciate her attention! She is considerably larger than the puppy in the above photo but was apparantely trained in the same technique...
My heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone for the kind words, thoughts, prayers and wishes for my recovery! They really do help! I am finally making some progress towards becoming a functional human being again. I'm even going to try doing a couple of loads of laundry and VACUMMING today!
I suffered a significant concussion, but other than that, only minor cuts and scrapes and some aches and pains. All are deminishing a little each day. I am so grateful to my daughter, Pam for helping me through this difficult time, as well as my Dear Friend Katie W., who has made several trips to come down and help in any way that she could. I know that my Beautiful Baby Girl felt horribly frustrated that she could not be here to help her Mama but thoughts of her coming to see me in just a COUPLE OF WEEKS sure do inspire me to heal and get well as quickly as possible.
I am very blessed.
"I don't see what's so funny about that puppy but I sure am happy that Mom's feeling better! She's even going to come out and SIT with us today and TAKE PICTURES!
I LOVE having my photograph taken. I must tidy up to look my very best. See you soon!"
