Thank you, thank you. I love you...

I am truly grateful for the support of so many who sent in money direct to the Small Animal Hospital at the University of Florida, Gainesville. Nice will be admitted Tuesday morning for his knees surgery. The doctor had stressed we should have the operation as soon as possible to prevent further damage to the knee structure. With help from UL, media coverage and people literally around the world the initial expense was raised in ten days. I have been at a loss for words to express my appreciation for everyone who got the word out and rallied to Nice's aid. With the gift over weekend and the funds sent thru this website I was feeling pretty humble. When the news came to me from UL that donations by mail and by phone on Monday and Tuesday had gotten us close enough to schedule Nice for next week I was happy, and worried I would not have the balance by next week. Wednesday night I received word from friends we had met from Louisiana to California saying they were sending help. Thursday afternoon I was told the surgery cost had almost been met, Then a generous gift from a couple who have us a ride on our last day in Hot Springs, Arkansas helped surpass the threshold for Nice's surgery and well toward the post-op check ups needed in the following months. Humble gratitude and affection doesn't come close to describe my feelings for the love, assistance and caring prayers everyone is sending.
Thank you all, I love you.
