what a wonderful gift - both Maddi and your ponytail :-). I was unable to download the picture! We just lost our 16 year old Pomeranian last month. He belonged to my daughter and was her favorite pal. I like to think they he rejoined her and that they are together again. He apparently just went to sleep and never woke up! Oh but that we could all go that way!
I am sorry to hear about your flare-up and your hospitalization. I think about you often and always pray for you to get some relief from your symptoms.
I wish you and your family a Joyous Christmas and a Proseperous New Year!
