Well, she is mine, but not made by me. She was made by Lynn of beading heart art who is one of the most talented and sharing people I have had the privilege of coming across in the bead world. I commented on several of her butterflies on her blog and told her if she would ever make a chocolate and blue combination, I might have to come and tackle her for it. I didn't have to tackle her, she made one and sent it to me. Can you believe my good fortune? I thought I really like her bead work until I actually owned a piece of it. Now I know I LOVE it! This is truly a gift and at a much needed time for me too. Bless you and thank you so much Lynn. Your generosity and friendship means more to me than you could ever know.
Maddux update: not much more to report. We are still waiting to hear the culture report to see if he is on the right medication for this infection. The NY specialist had many suggestions for my Vet and they are working together to try to figure out the correct protocol for Maddux. She informed me about the rareness and seriousness of this illness. Its not like I don't already know since I am the one taking care of him. She made it all sound so grim. I hope we can prove her wrong.
