Frankie and Ernie Saved Us

Yup...We were saved from certain starvation by our Wiener Furends on da Hill!

Our visitors from Michigan have gone home and boy were we hungry 'cause now Mom has been takin a rest and ignoring, starving, not feedin' us on time!

Then.....a BOX came in da mail!
 Brudder Max was FURst to check it out

 Hmmm...what is this good smellin stuff?

 Hey Amber...come see this!

Oh dis smells so good!

BRAVO ... and its all grain free, natural, freeze dried, and made in da USA! 

 OK...enough already!  Let me get dis puppy open!

 Ah..Woman!  Could use a wittle bit of help here!

Holee GuaccaMolee...
Da Woman gots to cook dis.
"Just Add Warm Water"
Don't NOSE if Mom can handle dis!

Ok...Not Bad, Mom!
(You Surprise Us!) 

 Oh, dis is soooo good and yummy too!

 There were freeze dried TREATS too!
We didn't want to share wit da pack, BUTT Mom said it was da right thing to do.

OK, DAD......pass 'em out and do it quick!

 Pepper's tongue says it all!

More Please!

Unknown to us, Mom sneaked in a video of us enjoying our BRAVO dinner!


And now a word from our ASSistant....

Sorry we haven't been able to post any updates on Shelly lately but it's been a real roller coaster ride with her treatment and care.  She was released from the re-hab center on June 3 when her re-hab insurance ran out of benefits.  We brought her home to try and care for her here, but six days later she was back in the hospital again.  After three weeks of hospital care, we brought her back here again.  We tried so hard for almost a month and failed miserably in trying to take care of her.  She was very weak and unable to walk, even with her prosthetic leg.  She fell a few times and on one of those occasions, I pulled a muscle in my back trying to pick her up.  John injured his back trying to push her down three stairs in a wheelchair to get her to the car for a doctor appointment.  The doctors, her case worker, and a social worker have all agreed that we just can't take care of her properly with all her disabilities.  On Sunday we had to take her to the ER again and she is now back in ICU as they try to diagnose her latest problems.  They are actively searching for another re-hab center that will accept her when she is able to be discharged.  This has been a long, hard road for all of us, but your continued prayers and POTP will get us through this latest crisis.  For this I say THANK YOU to each and every one of you.  Hopefully they will locate a nice place that can help her.

Frankie and Ernie are just great like that. We are so sorry about your continued struggles....we say a prayer everyday for your family and that you will find the best place for Shelly's care. WE are still working on getting Maceys hose, all this time, no one knows what to do with a child with lymphedema around here. It is a real mess.

C.L.W.STEP said...

Wow! Those dinners looked delicious! Yummy! What good friends you have too!

We're so sorry to hear about your Shelly. Ghostwriter knows exactly how hard it is to take care of people with disabilities because she works in a nursing home. We wish we lived near by so she could help you! We'll be thinking about you all!

Ruby said...

I hope the hospital peeps can figure out a rehab that can take her and give her the bestest care, so she can heal up and gets well. I am sendin' lots of POTP and healin' vibes and TONS of AireZens to your family!!! Thinkin' of you guys! Remember, if there is anythings we can do, let us know!

Millie and Walter said...

Frankie and Ernie are great friends.

Insurance companies just make steam come out of our mom's ears. It isn't right that you should have to injure yourselves trying to care for her when she should be in a proper care facility.

We are keeping our paws crossed that all gets better for Shelly.

Jans Funny Farm said...

Oh, how wonderful of Frankie and Ernie. At first we thought you were going to say they sent you lots of veggies from their garden. But they sent you the good stuff.

You folks have been amazing! We pray there are brighter, happier days ahead for all of you! {{{Hugs}}}

White Dog Blog said...

What wonderful friends to think of yo all...and it seems so yummy! Your poor human sissy just cannot seem to get a break and we know it takes so much outt of all your family. Has she talked with the patient advocate at the hospital to see if there is anything that they can do to get her at least assistance at home? Something? It is just wrong that she has very real needs and they are not being met. We ask the Universe to provide answers and solutions and reveal a future of hope and recovery. Feel our paws and arms around you all.

Ziggy Stardust said...

I am so happy for you that you got goodies from Frankie and Ernie. That is so pawsome and now you won't have to starve or something.

Ziggy Out!!

I continue to pray for all of you everyday and hope for a solution and some hope at the end of that very long tunnel you have been facing for so long. God bless you all

Love Anne

Molly the Airedale said...

easyweimaraner said...

I'm so sorry for Shelly and for you and I hope for a solution and the best place what helps her to walk on the hard road of recovery. We all cross our paws that you have no further insurance problems... that's so mean when you have to go through that too...

Hmmm, Amber...I could've sworn that Bravo box was supposed to be a surprise so that you would not know who it was from! Interesting....I may need to have a "talking to" with Bravo! But, I am glad you got your pressie package and I am SUPER glad you all enjoyed all your treats! You and your family are still in our prayers...every day.

M. K. Clinton said...

You just can't beat a box of Bravo! Frankie and Ernie ROCK! I hope things go easier at the hospital this time. Finding a good rehab is difficult with insurance being so hard to deal with sometimes. ♥

The Daily Pip said...

Those foodables look so yummy!!!!!! Frankie and Ernie are the absolute best.

I'm so sorry for all your family is going through. How absolutely amazing and beautiful that you tried to care for her at home. I'm praying that you find the right place for her soon. I know you will ...keep the faith. Lots of love to all of you.

Good job Frankie and Ernie! We're sorry to hear of Amber's continued difficulties and really appreciate how much goes into care of someone (Mom took care of her Dad after his stroke 8 years ago while he recovered).

We will continue to pray for her and your family.
Your friend,
