She gained back two lbs and although the blood work wasn't all where they would like to see it....
they all did a happy dance just to see her prancing through that door! They truly thought they were sending her home for her last days as they had exhausted what they could do medically at that time.
The labs show the pancreas to be back to almost normal levels but the liver counts are much more elevated and that is of course a concern but thinking if she conquered that "nastier than they've ever seen" pancreas then she will get over this hurdle as well.
A few changes suggested to try with her diet and a supplement that will help the liver and if all goes well with no setbacks she goes back in a month for another check up.
With the liver issue they are still advising that we don't reintroduce the meds for her autoimmune disease.... I will watch for issues or complications with that and we will take it as it comes.
She is a content Girl now, happy and has comfort here at home.....for now I am so thankful for that.
Thank you once again....from the bottoms of our hearts for being our Prayer Warriors for Sophie!
We believe that's why she is home and happy!
Her sister Ivy now out weighs her by 24 lbs......she is a big boned Girl! Actually she is just a big English Yellow with lots of muscle...and that's coming from the Doc!!
Life on the Lane has been chaotic to say the least these past couple of weeks....we're ready for some normalcy, I'm just not sure what that might be though with me and my crew!
Scheduling classes and some other fun things for fall and winter and I will share all of that with you very soon. The Cellar Stitchers 2 will be meeting on Wednesday here in the Studio to work on the
Folk Art Table Square project.....I am working on a myriad of things, ornaments, table mats, runners....wearables, yes, wearables and much more.
Take Good Care,

and isn't this just about the sweetest face ever!!
Our Sweet Sophie is beating the odds according to the Doc. They truly didn't think she would be with us still.....and here we are with her eating almost like normal, taking her walks and riding shotgun with Momma.
She will visit the Doc come Monday and have blood work done to see how the pancreas, liver and kidneys are fairing and we'll go from there.
We do realize with the auto immune disease that she has that she will most likely have complications of some sort in the future. She will be starting back on some meds for that after blood test results are in and they feel it's time. For now....
we are grateful that she is happy and enjoying life at home where she loves and is loved!
I am a believer and I just know that all of you who jumped in on our prayer chain for Sophie and her family have been am important part on making her our Miracle Girl!
If it's only for awhile longer we have her we will forever remember all the love sent our way that played a part in the extra time we were able to spend with her and she with us.
Love to All,
Big Pops, Sharon, Sophie, Ivy & Isabelle

and jiggity jig doesn't even begin to express how happy we all are!
and I know she isn't exactly doing a jig right here but let me say that after five days and nights in a strange place without your people with tubes running into you, laying in a kennel with a cone on your head....I think I'd be looking much the same.
She certainly had a spring in her step when she seen I was there and it got more springy as she realized we were headed for the door together and then when she seen her truck....oh my!
She is still a very sick Girl and is going to need pampering and you all know that of course she's in the right place now for that.
We aren't sure how things will go but after talking with the Doc and the Doc seeing how she reacted to being with her Momma, it was decided that she needed to come Home.
We have plans to walk in the woods and along the Lane....roam the Farm and the alfalfa field.
Take some long rides and stop for ice cream.
We will lay in the grass and do nothing and if she wants to sleep on the bed with us, I'm betting she's going to be right there snugged in.
We are still praying for a miracle of sorts....that the pancreas might heal and things will turn around.
We will keep our faith that whatever will be best for her is what will come.
We do know that if love plays a factor then she stands a chance.....
She is Home....
Home, where we Love
Where she knows she is loved and where she is happy and content.
Sophie is Home.....quite possibly to spend her last days.
We will fill those days with the love she has known since we made her ours almost eight years ago.
Thank you everyone who has reached out to us in prayer, caring thoughts and your love.
This isn't easy but knowing we are wrapped in the arms of so many makes it much more bearable.
Continued prayers for healing and comfort welcome.
From the Lane.....
Big Pops, Sharon
Sophie, Ivy & Isabelle
