Because of you STINKY...........

WHY did you have to eat all those yucky Advil pills STINKY????


My house looks like a hospital,


My living room looks like a prison cell, (I'm the warden BTW)

I'm glad for once I'm not the one in the prison.... I've recovered two knee surgeries and one plate removal surgery, in the prison back in 2003,

(yes..SHE shaved me...)

And the scelerosing of one of my toes in 2006,


I haven't been getting my walkies. Mum has to keep an eye on your IV.

(mum: Sunshade won't leave the property without me. You can drag her out, but she'll just drag you right back in. So she hasn't been getting the walks she's used to... Sorry girlie..)


Mum is sad & worried all the time, and I'm sad & worried when mum is like that (even tho she can be quite EVIL at times!).


For the first time in 8 years, I didn't get to go to a fun place for my birfday.

(mum: Usually, every year on her birthday, I take her somewhere where I know she'd love. Rain or shine or SNOW, we're at the lake, the beach, the river, the pet store, whatever makes her happy. Last year, Vancouver got its first snow on her birthday. It almost never snows this early in Vancouver, but it did. We were on our way to Buntzen Lake when snow flakes started to fall. Sunshade had a great time at the lake even tho it was freezing.

I feel bad I couldn't make her birthday a special one this year, but truth be told, I was tired. Physically and emotionally. Her love to me is unconditional, and that's why I feel so bad...)


I made all those sacrifices.


They would all be worth it if you would just GET BETTER!

You better listen to me, because I'm TELLING you NOW to GET BETTER!!!!!!!

Orrrrrrrrr else!

**Last note: we did do something for my B-Day, and I was VERY well fed. In fact, I can still feel food in my stomach..hehe. We'll post them as soon as we could. Mum is a little on the tired side these days.

(mum: Thank you all my friends for your unbelievable support via the blogs and e-mails. It is comforting to have people who understand what I'm going through, because I know, you all love your kids as much as I do. I'm grateful to have you all praying and pulling for the little man. THANK YOU again.)

Hi Sunshade,

What terrible news about Stinky. I'm sure that with the excellent care he is getting and your help he will recover. Hang in there! Best of luck to all of you!!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Hi Sunshade,

I just knew that you are a caring aunt dispite of all the complains you had made about stinky.

I am sure the Landshark will be out of the cell soon to launch attacks on you.

For now, please do me a favour by reminding your mummy to sleep and rest as much as she can.


Luckie Girl said...

Hi Sunshade,
I am sure your Mom (& Stinky) knows all the sacrifices you have done for them. Do take good care of both of them alright? It's not easy being a warden I say.

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Lorenza said...

Hi, Sunshade
I am sure that as soon as Jaffa gets better you will have a big celebration for your birthday! Just give your mom a little time to recover from this scary episode.
We all know you are a good girl and will be patient.
Take care of them.
Have a good night

T-man Angel said...

Poor Miss Sunshade, we know you're worried about your brother. When he's feeling better, you can celebrate your birthday together, in style!

Ruby Bleu said...

Oh Sunshade we are all here for you, your Mum and Stinky too. Stinky you better get better or we'll all be after you!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Kirby said...

Oh Sunshade,

I'm so sorry that all this is happening during your birthday. You are such a sweetie to understand all your mom is going through with Jaffa and helping out with Jaffa. You are probably some of the best medicine for him. Please watch over him. The whole DWB community has you all in their thoughts and prayers. We want Jaffa to get better and for you all to go somewhere AMAZING to celebrate your birthday. Don't forget to be a typical aire-clown to make your mom smile and laugh. She's going through a lot and probably could use a bit of aire-humor right about now. Give Stink, Mum and of course you are best!

Your pal,

Your belated birthday celebration will be the best ever, Sunshade, but for now, Jaffa has to come first! You're a smart girl and one heck of a help to your mom! All three of you are in our thoughts and prayers!

Poor Sunshie, I'm sure you mommy will make it up to you once Jaffa is better. Have faith in her ok?!

U have to be a good girl & comfort her. She is very worried for Jaffa.

You stand guard at the door for the mail man ok!

Sunshade, we all know you love your Jaffa. We all know that your NOT) Evil Mum will make your belated birthday even better than usual, so put on your patience hat and wait. While you wait, give Jaffa an Airekiss or two, OK? take care of your Mum, too, you good girl. Eight is Great!

Poor Sunshade! Stinkies are just bad! I know because I have 2 stinky brothers. My stinky dog brother always tries to land shark me too. And they both chase me! When Jaffa feels better and after your Mum gets some rest, you gotta milk this birthday thing. You should celebrate for a whole week!


Gus said...

Miss Sunshade...Happy Birthday. We just read Stinky's page too, and your mom said there what a good good girl you are being. We hope you and Stinky get to celebrate soon - your birthday and his health together.

gus and teka

Stanley said...

Sunshade Gurrrl!!!

I seriously believe you can actually SCARE any kidney damage right out of Jaffa! Keep it up, sweet girl. You and your mum are big keys to his speedy recovery.

We in GooberStan salute your mama (and you of course) for being such a good mama to our JaffaMan. We may name a holiday after your mama!

Goober love & smooches,
Stanley (for all GooberStanians)
