NOTICE: (Updated March 5, 2010)

Beginning December 19, 2009, Books 'N Border Collies will be posting but only intermittently while I pursue personal goals. I plan to share some reading I'm doing, but there will be no reviews. I will, however, be sharing my exploration of vegetarian cooking and the cookbooks and websites I use to educate myself. I hope you enjoy it!

Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock


Things are most likely going to slow down a little bit here at Books 'N Border Collies. Remember the little issue with Peter's heart? Well, we've been dealing with all kinds of things here the last couple of months: heart monitors, medicines, blood tests, various heart imagings, etc., etc., and now we're coming to the actual "fix-it" stage. Next week Peter will go in for a cardiac ablation. Yikes. We've spoken to a lot of people who have either had the procedure or know people who have had it. All should be just fine, and he should feel much, much better within a couple of days. No reason to be nervous, right? (But they're laser scarring his heart!!!!)

Anyway, I won't be posting as often leading up to and following this, but I promise I'll have lots of great stuff once we've got Peter all settled in to normal life again. In the meantime, Peter sure could use some happy thoughts sent his way!

Talk to you all soon!

Thank you so much, everyone! Peter is feeling the love! :-) We have one pre-op procedure left that we're going to tomorrow (Friday), then the actual cardiac ablation will be done on Tuesday. They say it can take up to eight hours. I'm thinking I better bring some serious reading with me. It's going to be a long, nervous day. I'll feel much better when the surgeon comes out and tells me it went swimmingly and he's just fine.

Oh Lezlie, I'm sorry you and Peter have to go through such difficult times. Loads of positive thoughts to both of you!

I'm sending good thoughts to you and Peter! Please try to pop in to let us know he is okay!

You'll have nurse's Skye and Max to help you. Hopefully they wont jump on him to do the nursing.

Lezlie, I'll be praying for Peter and sending good healthy vibes and positive thoughts out your way. Take it easy yourself. I would be stressing too though-big time. Please let us know, even briefly if you can, that he is ok. Hugs.
