“Love is the anchor in the storm” ❤️ Thank you to everyone who has reached out with words of support, encouragement and love. Mum is recovering well after having major surgery last Monday. A big thank you to the incredible surgeons, nurses and doctors, and a special thanks to the Acute Pain Team and Autism team at #derrifordhospital for caring for my mum and allowing me to be at her bedside. Everyone was amazed by my obedience, patience and incredible loyalty and intuition. I was so careful to only use gentle touch as Mum was very sore following the surgery. I stayed by her side until she was taken down to theatre. Mum almost cried as I looked back in confusion as my Auntie Rebekah led me away. We are never apart and this was a very scary experience!
I was overjoyed to see Mum again but immediately understood that I couldn’t be my usual bouncy self. I cuddled up next to her for hours every day until she was well enough to go home. All the while, I was helping her with lots of tasks such as pulling off her socks and retrieving items that are particularly difficult for her to reach. It will take some time for Mum to make a full recovery but she is getting stronger every day! Mum is so thankful for my devotion and selfless heart. 💖 She feels so blessed to have such an incredible friend walking with her every step of the way!

Pupper Dusty is a teeny tiny baby Springador with the cutest face and matching personality 💗 She was a bit nervous yesterday during our first visit without Mummy there, but eventually she came out her shell and by the end she was running, playing, cuddling and even let out a couple of mini woofs! 10/10 for this lovely little girl 💗 Dusty is primarily going to be Fiona’s Fluffy Friend and I just know they are going to love each other 🥰 #FluffyFriendsGlasgow
