The pup comes home
When I posted about Roxy's surgery early this (gosh, it's after midnight, I guess this makes it yesterday now) morning, I had made a conscious decision to "put it out to the universe" (to borrow a phrase that my mom uses frequently) that I needed some support. While I appreciate the idea behind this particular phrase, I've always intensely disliked the way it sounds (which always makes my mom laugh when I tell her this), and so I never, ever use it. Which is why it's kind of funny now that I just said it. And also that I'm going to continue talking about it.
But in reality, for me today, it made sense. "Putting it out to the universe" - for me - meant sharing it with my blog world. It was my way of asking for support and comfort from a source that has frequently come to my aid.

It's hard for me to express how comforting it was for me to know that other people, at least for a moment, had Roxy in their thoughts and were wishing her well. To then receive all the wonderful comments of support and friendship so many of you sent me... these soothed my heart and eased my furrowed brow. Thank you so much.
My pup is back home and resting comfortably now:
Thank you for helping us get through today.
