Hello my fabulous friends!!!! It’s The Diva, aka International Style Icon!!!!  I asked (ok–commanded) Mom type a post for all of you, my adoring fans.

I am so very blessed and thankful for all of the love and concern you’ve shown me during my horrific tribulation. Your thoughts and prayers sustained me during my darkest hour.

I am feeling rather weak but so much improved.  We went to the vet’s today for a check-up and evaluation. I insisted Mom dress me in my new Princess dress. Even in my perilous condition I must keep up my appearance. The things we International Style Icons must endure.

Of course I charmed everyone there. I modestly basked in their adulation. I have added Pugsley the Pug, Joe the Chihuahua and Bandit the Cairn Terrier to my harem. I just can’t say no when they are throwing themselves at my dainty paws. What’s a girl to do??

The doctor said a bunch of medical stuff but truthfully I wasn’t paying any attention. I was distracted by the handsome vet tech who was petting me. I’ll let Mom fill you in on the boring details:

The woods don’t look so dark now.  Dr. Garcia is pleased with her progress. She responded to the medicine exceptionally well. He cut back the Elanapril and Pimodene to a very low dosage . (one of these helps her heart pump) He added a very low dosage of Laseck (sp) as a fluid preventative.  If she continues to do well on this regime it can buy us more time as there is room to increase the dosages if needed. She will still need to be monitored and kept from over-exertion. But tonite for the first time I think I will be able to sleep!!  Her ears have perked back up and her tail is wagging. And the DIVATUDE is off the charts!!!  Not that it diminished all that much.  To say Kae is high-maintenance is an understatement!!! But we wouldn’t want her any other way!!

Mom says we will be back to our regular blogging on Sunday. I SAY I need to be featured more on the blog. After all–she’s the Menopausel part and I am the SUPERMODEL!!!!

I send everyone wiggly kisses and licks!!!  Everyone have a spectacular weekend!! I am planning on making Mom take me for a ride around the neighborhood in my stroller.
