Good News & Thank Yous!

Charlie had a visit to the Vet today
He tried to hide!
But had his blood drawn anyway! 
GOOD NEWS!
His thyroid function is much better (high normal range).  I will continue with the 1/4 pill twice a day.  He will get checked again in 3 months unless he isn't doing well.  So far he is eating, sleeping (in the cat cave) and being Charlie!!  I'm so thankful he is doing better and hope I can relax a little bit!


I've been the lucky winner of some giveaways and wanted to share and give thanks!
I won this gorgeous Vanity Jar from a giveaway that Diana at Adirondack Girl @ Heart
It is so pretty and I love it!

I won the 'got too much stuff giveaway' from Sally Annie Magundy Homemade....it came wrapped so cute I hated to open it, but I did!!
I can't believe all the amazing and fun items she included in this Halloween giveaway.  
I can't wait to do some crafting with Tiger next year!

And more vintage crafting items from Melissa's Antiques for her 3 year blog anniversary!

I am really blessed and lucky to have made all these wonderful blogging friends and 
to have won such fun stuff!  

Wishing you JOY,

Linda

Glad Charlie is doing better....and you and the Boss should get together a buy lotto tickets...you win as much stuff as he does....BTW...I have lost my blog and i'm very upset about it....It still comes up with my name on it in the right hand corner but when I hit the "dashboard" button to write post it's saying I have no blog yet and my profile is blank...have you ever had this issue ...I can't seem to fix it.

Lucky you for winning these giveaways and lucky Charlie for getting such a good report from the vet. I'm sure he wasn't the first cat to find a hiding place on top of the cabinet, haha, he thought he was going to escape. Thanks for sharing the good news Linda.

EM said...

Running from a blood draw? I totally get it! Poor Charlie. My guys always hated the vet. To take Chiquito, we have to sedate him. My sweet little boo-boo kitty becomes homicidal in the vet's office. The noises that boy makes. Glad he is doing better.

Nellie said...

Chatty Crone said...

I like all those Halloween gifts.

And it was so funny - you said Charlie in his cat cave and I thought about batman and his bat cave. Guess we have men cave's too!

Glad he is okay.

J said...

It's fun to see your prize treasures, but I'm here mostly to check up on Charlie. So glad he's going to be fine. And I really admire his skill at "hiding" from the vet! What a cutie!

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

Poor Charlie!! How in the world did you get him down from up there Linda?? Glad that he's doing well!!
sounds like a good time to buy a couple of lottery tickets!! Lovely blue jar!!

Sally Annie Magundy said...

Hi Linda!
I'm right there with Charlie :) I hate getting blood tests! I'd climb on top of the cabinets too if I was able LOL.

What a lucky girl you are, three giveaway wins!

Thank you, you're so sweet to take photos, glad you enjoyed all your Halloweenie crafty stuff. Wishing you lots of fun crafting with Tiger.

Happy weekend!
Sally

Linda said...

Such a sweet feline, so glad he is doing better. Lovely post!

Shelia said...

Hi, Linda! Hope little Charlie is still doing well. I had to take Chloe Dawn to a new vet Friday to get her heartworm, tick and flea stuff. She was scared to death too! She loves to board but hates the docs! ;) Thanks for popping in and have a nice Sunday,
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Hi Linda, this is my third time trying to leave a comment.. 3rd time is the charm. Sweet Charlie, he is quite a climber, lol. Glad he is healthy.

Lucky you winning all those giveaways. Must be good karma coming back to you for nice things you've done. :)

Lady Linda said...

Poor kitty! Love your winnings...great fun.

Annesphamily said...

Woo Hoo! Linda, my lucky friend! You won some fun things! Glad Charlie is better too. What a handsome feline he is! Enjoy your winnings and watch your mail for my little giveaway win too! Hugs, Anne

Annesphamily said...

Linda I tried to see is Sue's blog came up. I am not sure what happens. M had a similar problem but I was signed in to my g mail as well as aol account and it locked me out. SO I had to sign out of both and go back in on the aol side. They make stuff too difficult here. I hope she finds her blog. If you have her e mail address Hootin Anni probably could help!

Laurie Ritchey said...
